    EZ-Flash V Triple Pack Announced

    GBA, RAM, Rumble support for EZ-V








    Update: The EZ-V Triple Pack will not be available for purchase separately. It will be available in a special bundle pack with the EZ-V. Existing EZ-V owners only will be able to contact their dealer to order one seperately. The EZ-V Triple Pack goes on sale next week!



    The EZ-V is set to broaden it's horizons with the announcement of the EZ-V Triple Pack. This 3-in-1 pack grants EZ-V users GBA, Rumble and RAM support.



    You will be able to play GBA games from it as it is equipped with 256Mbit NorFlash, 2Mbit SRAM and a battery to retain all data. It can be used as a standalone GBA Flashcart.



    The pack can also be used as a rumble cart which is compatible with all official rumble supported games. The strength of the rumble can also be adjusted and it can be used in homebrew development as an SDK will be released.



    Last but not least the Triple Pack will work like the official RAM cart, allowing the Opera browser to function correctly on the EZ-V.

    That's the spirit! [​IMG] They could simply include a "phat" case shell for it which would be the best solution.

    This thing sounds awesome though. The perfect slot 2 filler. [​IMG] If only it was 512mbit though...

    Looks great and the potential for homebrew support is certainly there [​IMG] The new PicoDrive Genesis emulator uses the RAM pack to boost performance supposedly.

    Also Rumble will be able to be coded into homebrew DS games.

    damn, they'd better get the r4 working with this. I'm not liking my DS browser or gba games on my sc lite.

    Pretty cool slot2 device... Was that only 256 Mbit of storage though?

    256mbit because from the feature list ("perfect GBA/NDS linker") it looks like it doesnt have a loader.

    i'm guessing an update to the OS will support this, and you press A on a gba rom and it writes the rom (and save) to the slot-2 expansion and then boots it

    and then on reboot, it reads the save back

    If it works just like the official RAM Pak and Rumble cart, why shouldn't it work with the R4 too? [​IMG]

    You wont be able to buy it seperately though. EZ-V or nothing.

    I guess that's one way to protect your investment.

    jeeze ez team releases something i want after i gave up on their product for junk support... nice deal if you have ez5, i'll just stick with M3 lite and m3 simply seeing how its gba/somewhat a ram pack, not to mention extra space for ds games... i envy the rumble pack, but i guess i'll goto walmart and buy one for $10 [​IMG] i still want one of the tripple pack...

    You mean you made the "wrong" choice at some point in time and now you need to wait for a solution from another company ?

    If you sell what you are using now you can buy the EZ-V triple pack ....

    No lol I would never buy a Ez 5 being able to buy a r4 instead, r4ds all the way! I just need to wait for a solution from another company because EZ is only selling the memory pack with their product, like other companys couldn't make their own product too.
    Bad move in my opinion [​IMG] They could sell their product now to anyone and take advantage of the market as it is, as there is no competition on this particular product... But I guess it's only a matter of time really... They wont get as much sales with this move as they expect... I think... [​IMG]

    awesome so this is kinda like the eziv deluxe with rumble.

    Edit: after looking at the material it looks like its a flat type of coating that they used, it appears as the inside flat coating of the DS, which I would think is nicer, it also looks like it fits flusher. They may have figured out how to better, get it to fit from learning about the mistakes of the eziv.

    Also I wonder if this will work with just a plain ez pass.

    What would be the advantage of that? Is it now limited in GBA rom sizes or something? [​IMG]

    Oww it's a stand alone in the GBA Stuff... is it not possible to write the GBA thing to the slot2 thing from EZ5's microsd?
