    An EZ4 Lite costs about 44$ and an 512 MB SD-TransFlash memorycard goes for atleast 20-30$, so how is the G6 Lite price a ripoff?

    The G6 Lite has much better features, compability & looks than the EZ4 Lite, so I don't mind paying 5-10 more dollars for that.

    internal memory is better than exchangable memory...it's much less power consuming, and the loading times are much shorter...and if you buy an EZ4 Lite + 512MB Micro SD, you'll end up paying more than for a 512MB G6 Lite...so it's no rip-off...

    btw, 512MB are enough to store 4-16 games (depending on size...even more will fit if the roms are trimmed or zipped), I see no problem with that...I currently have a 256Mbit GBA flashcard, and I never had any problems with it...

    thats 78 without shipping or anything. winsunx likes to jack up the cost with that. im gunna have 130. im gunna get an ez4lite for about 60 find a mem stick for about 30 and buy a mml as a passme. if that was 78 shipped it would be a great deal.

    I wonder if you can mod the G6 cartridge to fit the EZ4 Lite.

    My pre-order came to $100.32 USD with shipping to Canada. That's a really fair deal, considering the price of current G6 units.

    Not having to grab removable media is actually a sweet treat (especially since nearly everything I own requires some sort of removable media).

    I'm also satisfied with a 256mbit GBA flashcart, and would be plenty happy with a 512MByte NDS cart. This is plenty space for games only, which is all I care to use my NDS for. The ones who think they need 2Gbytes of data to carry around at all times baffle me. The only thing I can figure is they need all that space for boobyfloppin' movies.

    edit: if that removeable media could perform NDS games 100% perfectly, with no skips, hiccups, slowdowns, etc., then I'd change my mind about what I just said. I want seamless game performance - everything else is secondary.

    A Passcard 3 should work with the G6 Lite, right? It looks like it works with the original G6, but the EZ4 worked with the Passcard 3, and someone had problems with the EZ4 Lite.

    Also, is there an official site or forum that talks about the G6 product? I've looked at M3's site, and they only talk about the M3.

    http://www.g6flash.com/main.htm is the official site but it only has info about the "old" G6 carts.
