    G6DS Real Information overload!

    Exclusive GBAtemp news and photos!








    [​IMG]
    The G6 Team have supplied us with a plethora of information on their new G6DS Real. This new slot 1 cart carrying the infamous G6 logo is set to become the 'be all and end all' in the DS flash kit market. The G6DS Real does not use SD memory cards, instead it comes with a built in 1GB or 2GB of NAND memory and offers a simple drag and drop interface via its USB linker...

    This looks pretty robust. Looking forward to a review. Hopefully I won't have to replace my R4DS with it. [​IMG]

    Function wise it does sound a lot like R4/M3s but with 100% download play and built in memory (which is obviously why there aren't any slow-down to do with MicroSD). So the only thing that 1:1 does is download play?!

    That GUI looks sexy =]

    What about the price?
    Cause N-Card clones 16G are sold for less than 40$ with perfect compatibility (except download play).
    And what about the slot-2 extension?

    Maybe they run extra code alongside the ROM to detect for the soft reset input, rather than from within the ROM (which of course needs on the fly patching, i.e. M3s/R4)

    Which are the real improvments compared to the M3 Simply apart from the download play?
    The compatibily of the m3 simply is already almost perfect and very easy to use.

    I have a feeling this card is going to get a 10/10 rating. The Gbatemp staff could always send me it for a 2nd review i will happily do it for free (also i will keep the G6ds real). Well im looking forward to you guys contacting me [​IMG]

    That's utter crap. No. DS doesn't do multitasking. You load a ROM and just the ROM is running.

    Wow. I was convinced that this card was going to turn out to be just a rumor.

    Well played, G6... you and your "infamous" logo.

    Seems a good slot 1 card but slot 1 cards are overrated.

    It looks good but I'm eager to see how it actually performs.

    Full download play support, I know a lot of people have been eager for that (*cough* Temper Card rocks *cough*) [​IMG]
