    G6/M3 Team News

    Various bits of information







    I contacted Danny of the G6/M3 Team, whom is their spokesperson to better inform our newer members, this morning about a few things going on over at the team's place. During our conversation, there were a few points of interest that I felt was worth sharing:



    · The G6 Lite 8GBit is expected to be available sometime next month. That's twice as big as the initial G6 Lite, or 1 Gigabyte for our ratio-confused members. Please note that "available" means they're done maunfacturing the first batch. Retailers may need some time to gather stock and mail out to buyers. The G6 Lite Pro will follow sometime later (2007) and will also be sized at 8GBit.



    · Some of you may have noticed that there is an M3 Lite GBA Casing for sale over at GamerSection thanks in part to one of our forum discussions. Danny assures me that this is an official product. So, if you're taking advantage of any of the recent Game Boy Micro sales and only have the M3 Lite, then this is a good alternative.



    · Danny states that the long overdue English PDA Software for G6 & M3 has not been forgotten. They are still working on it and offered no approximate date for it as of right now.



    · The yet-unnamed Slot-1 flash card is still in development. No details were revealed as to functionality, date of availability or retail cost.



    · A review of the M3 Lite Pro will be coming soon here at GBAtemp by yours truly.

    They've been more focused on ROM compatibility and developing the new M3 Lite Pro, G6 Lite 8GBit and Pro 8GBit along with the Slot-1 card. Personally, I'd rather they keep up with these versus putting the PDA software as a priority, though I could use PDA functionality right now.

    Since DSOrganise doesn't work on the G6 I do want PDA DS. Also on that note, the fatlib they released still doesn't seem to satify developers, perhaps they should re-look into that. I'm missing out on some great homebrew.

    But on the top of the list for me would be compatibility with Tony Hawk Downhill Jam...

    Other than those two things I think the G6 Team is doing a great job, I hope they keep it up!

    While I think the M3 is good as it is, I wish for the little extras such as selecting the game via touch.

    I have an M3 Lite Pro already, and so does my girlfriend, Mikki. We are experiencing save problems with them and I wonder if it's a problem with all M3 Lite Pros, or just our batch. To read up on our problems, go here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=39136

    The news in a nutshell:

    "We started working on some new products now that DS-X is getting so much praise, so you guys with your firmware updates are going to take the back seat for now."

    My G6 is going strong (never had any of the posted problems)... and this is excellent news.

    Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on a G6 8GBit!

    The M3 Pro series doesn't play GBA roms (or only roms up to 32Mb).
