    Exclusive Acekard R.P.G. Media Blowout! *UPDATE*

    First hardware pics and menu shots








    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    We've just received a shed load of new exclusive images of both the Acekard R.P.G. hardware and new loader menu system. From what we can see in the shots; the Acekard R.P.G. loader is looking mighty fine, with the time and a calendar on the top screen and a busy bottom screen with some options and file/folder information. Also, check out the photoshoot of the card propped up against an iPhone, the new black/red DS and a packet of.... menthol orange cigarettes?! You saw them first on GBAtemp.net!

    *Update* We've just received a new set of photos. This time you can get a glimpse of the packaging the Acekard R.P.G. comes along in! Hit the new link below to see the photos!

    Also we can confirm that the price of the Acekard R.P.G. 1GB NAND model will be set at a manufacturers recommended retail price of $65~$69 USD.
    We should hopefully be getting our hands on the Acekard R.P.G. by Wednesday at the latest, so stay tuned to GBAtemp for hands-on impressions!

    Damn, that card looks to be manufactured with so much care, and it looks nice, but I can't imagine this being cheap. If it's priced below g6 real then ok, but if it's above, then I'm not sure if I'm willing to dish it out.

    Edit: ah, the newspost has been edited with the price added. Hmm, $65... at that price point I'd say it beats g6 real, but r4..?

    Holy shit.

    Looks like no chips sticking out. The top has a clip (like those in G6DSR).

    Which lucky person has the Iphone in that picture [​IMG]

    Holy fuck, that build quality looks GODLY. Top notch. SOme bits of the GUI bother me though, like how they don't have the DS Game icon when you're over the game, ala Cyclo/R4. Hopefully this will have a lot of kickass features. Looks REALLY damn good but I don't know if I'd buy it unless I saw a complete feature list and it had better ones than the CycloDS.

    I wouldn't exactly say that the build quality is great [​IMG] The USB connector looks very easy to damage. Some interesting things.. when you can select Slot 2, I'm supposing that's just booting to slot 2, and not accessing the files on it, which would be cool.

    It uses a save type system.. how well do automatic save detection work in other cards that give you the option (I believe X9 and SCDS1 do)?

    hell yeah, the quality on the card looks really good. I also like the widows startup looking interface. This might be the card that replaces my precious R4 [​IMG]

    The team have stated that the card uses an advanced auto detection method.. I guess it's just an added option for troublesome games? [​IMG]

    I'd rather have an iPTouch, but thats just me.

    Im considering a future purchase, but my R4 is ok for now.
