    Do you think 40 bucks is a great deal for all it can do, or a ripoff compared to other cheap cards that do almost the same thing?

    (personaly im in between, after that video it looks amazing, but 40 bucks is a lil pricy)

    What other cards DO these things?

    Free cheat, GBA Emulation plus DS emulation, SNES Emulation, more video support...

    No one has one yet obviously but if it has all the features then yes it is. Cheap cards are cheap for a reason. Considering ds games are 30-90 depending on where you live why go for a cheap one that gets replaced when you can have a card that lasts.

    I think he's saying it runs your gba roms and your ds roms.

    I can definitely say the build quality on my DSOne is excellent. If that's any indication of the DSTwo's build quality, then it should last quite some time.

    Remember that just one original NDS game costs around $30. Play two downloaded NDS games and you already got your money's worth.

    Great deal. Remember what you're getting. I don't see any other of the 'cheap cards' do the things the DStwo can. GBA emulation on number 1. And free cheat. And lots of file formats that can be opened. The DStwo is a beast.

    I'd say go for it. The DSTWO is the closest card to the CycloDS Evolution so far (not a clone like the EDGE/iEDGE) and when I say something like that, it means something. This is actually the first time I see something interesting that could possibly be worth buying. If I had a DSi or DSi XL, this card would be the one to go for since it offers the GBA emulation that the DSi doesn't have. Even though some games are old, there are lots of golden ones in the masses of GBA games [​IMG]

    The CycloDS Evolution is around $40 and has been worth every single penny that I put in it. I've never regretted the fact that I bought an excellent card FROM THE START. I've never had to change the card because it has been dropped of support or that it has defects. I hope the Supercard team can get the same standards for this card as Team Cyclops has for theirs.

    Its one of a kind cart atm.
    Im quite happy with my EZ Flash Vi so i wont "upgrade", and if we ever get DSi homebrew making a near perfect GBA emulation should be possible to make.

    We only could decide that when the cart is officially launch.
    Simple:
    If the cart do everything promised... it´s a deal
    If not... a ripoff

    Keep in mind that we only saw a PREview. SuperCard team should launch the cart when it´s ready.
    (Ready = everything promised)

    I payed $40 for my AK2i because when I bought it, I knew nothing about flashcarts and I thought that was a good price lmao. So $40 for an SCDSTWO is a great deal I think.

    If you only have a dsi, it's a deal. If not, then it's a ripoff. Remember it only does GBA emulation plus your DS games of course. Emulation will never be perfect, but may eventually be pretty close. The key word is emulation. [​IMG]

    its a bit of both at the same time

    it was a bit overhyped as well
    gba emulator is basically a rip of the one for iplayer

    The price should be at least 30$...
    40$, is just too much......
