    Here's an email from danny I got when I asked him about the release date of the G6 lite pro
    This makes me angry. I pre-ordered from Winsunx since it had the same release date as the normal G6 lite.

    Dumb question, is the only difference with the pro version the ability to play GBA games?

    I'm starting to really dislike winsunx. I ordered the normal version G6 Lite but I doubt it will come anytime soon

    I really love GBA support of my EZ 4 Lite. I was considering picking up a G6 Lite Pro, but if they aren't making one, I guess they don't want my money [​IMG]

    No cheap and reasonable alternative for you, capitalist pigs! Haha! You must pay additional dollars for unrefined GBA function with spotty save! We give you no choice!! Haha! Shop at Walmart!

    Maybe if they didn't advertise the choice of not having GBA then it would be okay.

    whats the real differnce wit the G6 lite anyway?
    They might aswell just sell a lite fitting case for use with the G6 cart or something. Though there might still be size problems wit the internal parts.

    Still though, whats the big upgrade with it? Does it actualy get improved besides just a cosmetic change anyway?

    I've just written Winsunx about my order for G6 Lite Pro. Should this all be true, I'm going to be very unhappy. I've inquired whether I can change the order to the regular model and pay the difference of $25.09, though considering the standard model ships in just two days, I will seemingly miss out on the first shipment. Otherwise, I'm cancelling my order and making it a point to not deal with Winsunx ever again. They informed several of us that did pre-pay that the ship date was July 3rd for Pro. I won't deal with a shop who's head is so far up their own ass that they cannot admit they are clueless as to when a product is genuinely released.

    Even Amazon/NewEgg/Play.com does that, so I wouldn't pinpoint the blame on winsunx. Maybe they even were provided with false information, as this means more preorders and more preorders = more cash for g6. Remember we're talking about pirates here....
    Also, sorry I do not mean to offend you but all those who came out "surprised" by this, this is a quite your own fault, too.
    I quit blindly preordering new GBA flashcards with fancy featurs, back in the GBA scene because I quickly learnt that this only lends to disaster and dissapointment.
    Wait for the thing to come out and people to write reviews for it, you'll get your diry grubby little hands on the good stuff soon enough.

    Sometimes I think the forum population here is a bit like a herd of sheep ... "Oh EZ4L has come out"... *rushes to buy*.... "Oh G6" is coming *rushes to buy/preorder*
    (Again no offense meant, I had this behaviour in me too... it's quite easy to get e-hyped...)

    I passed on EZ-Flash IV due to it's lesser support than other cards, though I was planning to wait for the software to catch up in a few months. Again, this isn't a "rush to buy" issue. I read everything I could on G6 owner comments before deciding to put my money down. Again, Winsunx overstepped themselves. Whether this is the first time or not that they've done this, my opinion of them just fell substancially.

    I emailed them asking them about this and am waiting a reply. I feel the exact same way. This is my first time dealing with winsunx too.

    Yeah I point taken, but that was kind of what I was trying to convey - I do not preorder. I only order stuff when someone has got it first and reports it working. That's just me though. And yeah Winsunx can be quite shady at times, as I said were talking about a grey (pirate - let's not kid ourselves here) market here. Most of the flashcard retailers I've seen seem pretty shady to some degree.

    Of course I hope Winsunx get their act together and you get your G6 just fine.

    On the EZ4 side of things, well it works just as the M3 for me... I'm waiting at least another 1-2 months before buying another product - I want to see if they can get the problems worked out via patch, as that would save me some money and nerves.

    I know it'll sound incredibly shallow, but I'm really dissapointed now, the original M3 CF just looks so wrong in the DS Lite, it's not I mind it sticking out so much, it's just... /wrong/ !

    Hey dude, stick with the topic. I'm dissapointed that they won't be releasing G6lite pro same date as G6 lite perfect. I'm going to refund and buy Ezflash4 [​IMG]

    BTW should anyone else who has pre-paid with Winsunx hear anything from them, post it here as well as contact everyone in #NDSTemp.

    So Winsunx puts up products for preorder when there's no definate info that they really exist?

    That's great for business! [​IMG]
