    G6DS Real in-hand at GBAtemp!

    We've got it...








    [​IMG]
    We've got them! Our G6DS Real samples have just arrived at GBAtemp HQ! First impressions are good, the build quality seems very good. And there's some nice freebies in the box, though we're not quite sure what the wrist strap is intended for!

    Needless to say, testing will soon begin and you can look forward to an extensive and as always, detailed GBAtemp review very soon.

    Keep an eye on GBAtemp!

    Questions?

    Probably a wriststrap for your DS. ANyways, I thought the Real Series came with a slot 2 device [​IMG]

    There's one that's been bothering me for a while. Can you access any of N-Card clones with a G6DS usb reader? They both use NAND flash and are quite similar in terms of hardware, give it a try, maybe that would be a much faster way to transfer files to an N-Card clone.

    I suppose you could use it for your DS.
    No slot 2 device.

    There's no included PC software so... unless they, or some smart-arse come out with one I'd say no.

    No retailers have it yet AFIAK, so no price tag is known. I don't even know the MSRP.

    That's what the review will cover. [​IMG]

    Well sure, but why would anyone want to carry that around on their wrist? [​IMG]

    Awesomo.

    A million to one.

    Yeh the G6 shows as a removable disk. Extremely fast transfer or files.

    See above.


    It's a no go... Plain old nothing happens.

    Since I pretty much believe the G6 team for their word there's not much I want to know. But I guess the most pressing questions are these:

    Does download play work 100%? For instance New Super Mario Brothers
    Can you use softreset considering the games won't be patched?
    Could you CRC check or something to see if the roms are indeed unpatched? (I think there was a tool for this?)

    Thanks for all the great work guys.

    But what about the build quality? I see it uses a case similar to the one DS-X had. And DS-X' case was of very poor quality, it was very weak, many people had faulty ones. What about this one? As I see the seams are not very good either. How does it feel when you push it hard? Does it feel strong and resistant? R4's build quality is outstanding as everybody already knows, how can you compare G6DS Real's case to R4's then? I don't really trust this type of case, without screws I mean. If only it was hard glued...But then again people want changeable cases.
