    Ahh I see. So DS-Xtreme is being smart by getting a bunch of free exposure by giving you exclusive information.

    Pretty much, but since when was that a new marketing technique? [​IMG]

    Well, only 2 things I ask of this DS-Xtreme product:
    1) It delivers what it promises of 100% (or close) compatibility.
    2) Is out before Oct 26, when Phoenix Wright 2 comes out in Japan, with English/Japanese language selection available.

    As a MSDN member, I had gone to several Microsoft conferences and received many Microsoft T-Shirts with this logo:

    [​IMG]

    ie; "Microsoft eXtreme Conference"

    As far as names go, I actually work in market research & advertising - WITH 12 years of eXPerience in the industry. I watched the whole "X-treme" / ""eXtreme" trends come and go all within the first year of everyone jumping on the bandwagon and then quickly jumping off it again in 2002... I am not sure where you are coming from, but if it is not anything to do with Microsoft or Advertising, I can clearly see where your uneducated comments had come from.

    Please don't be rude because someone misunderstood you. Windows XP was also released in 2001.

    Yeah, the name means DIDDLY squat to me. However, there is pretty much no way that I am going to get this device, mainly because I never owned a GBA so I use my M3 to play GBA all the time. Since I already have a PassKey2, I can flash my DS without any problems (even the DS Lite isn't that hard). As long as it fits perfectly, I don't care if it is slot 1 or 2. Also, the $125 price tag is just a little way too high..

    Also, it is apparently impossible to play GBA at all using the DS-X since Slot 1 has a lower bandwidth than Slot 2. My question is, will this affect the capabilities of something like Moonshell? Lower bandwidth could mean more skipping in videos/mp3, right? Or is it enough bandwidth to not change anything still? I probably have no idea what I'm talking about, it could be that Moonshell requires fast media and not that much bandwidth, so please help clarify.

    Also, how much built-in RAM will it have? This may eventually be a problem for homebrew, considering that they have recently figured out a way to use 16 MB of the Supercard's RAM......some future homebrew projects may require some more RAM.
