    Can someone explain to me the fad with naming flashcards with a letter then a number
    I know not all cards are named like this, but a fair few are

    Any reason behind it?

    The M1 (never called that) was the original Movie/Multimedia player for the gameboy advance. The M2 (GBAMP) was the second. M3, you all know. R4...I have no idea what the R is for, any ideas? G6? I don't know the story behind that

    I don't think it's because of the R4
    The G6 and M3 were before it

    Hmm, I've found that people on this forum ignore members that don't have a sig and avatar....

    M1=movie player version 1
    M2=version 2, gbamp
    M3=version 3, M3 perfect
    G6=Game with a 6?
    R4="revolution"?, plus a 4 because of M3?

    I've noticed that for R4 G6 and M3, the letter can be move in some way to resemble the number. A capital G looks like a 6, if you rotate an M it looks like a 3, and if you flip the R horiz. it kinda looks like a 4.

    I think the 4 in R4 means "for"

    That's correct. It's even written like that on its package.

    Holy shit. That is true.. sounds like a coincidence though [​IMG] The M* was just a name given to a line of products, and M1 and M2 do not hold this theory [​IMG]
