    hmmm, it's the same price as a g6lite but we get a microSD slot instead of internal memory... well, if it's as good with homebrew as the SCl and as good with GBA as the G6, I guess I'll get it.

    [​IMG] So no GBA case? That's disappointing, that was the only thing i was disappointed about from Supercard Lite, and now M3 lite too

    Most M3's are pricey. [​IMG]
    Due to the multiple capabilities it can do.

    Wow, yea.. it is kinda pricey.

    $28 more than the Supercard lite, to be exact. Decision decisions...

    I love the SC lite interface, because I've the M3 lite's interface is clunky and slow.

    I went with the SC Lite, mainly because:

    1) + $28
    2) Faster interface (M3 / G6 are godawful slow)
    3) Front loading SD Micro

    The only thing M3 Lite has over it is the GBA support.

    What can it do that requires almost $30 bucks more? Play a few GBA games better? The SuperCard Lite has runs DS games perfect with even a crappy vanilla microSD and it has the instant save to microSD feature. The SuperCard Lite is much better for playing DS games while if you want near perfect GBA I would say go with the M3 Lite. The SuperCard also has a faster menu, a front loading memory slot and has better homebrew compatibility. I have never been able to see why people are willing to pay so much more for something that just plays a few GBA games better? I'm not saying it won't be a great product because it will, just not at $80 bucks good product.

    That's easy. Ever tried Advance Wars 2, the Metroid games or Mario Kart on SC? These are only examples for GBA games that are unplayable on SC. People who wanna play these gladly pay the more bucks and get slowdown-free GBA support. If you ask me it's worth.

    Those who don't care about GBA, go for SCL. Those who care about GBA, go for M3L.

    What about battery life? From most reports M3 has had better life than the SC, wonder if it's the same with the new generation of cards. And I find SC's interface really ugly compared to something slick like G6's (never tried an M3 to compare).

    why complain, it's not THAT expensive... and i'd like as close as 100% compatiblity and performence as close as a real game as possible...

    i wouln't have got my M3 CF if i knew that the G6 flash were some precent with the games... like those MINOR slowdowns that you nearly can't notice... i haven't heard even close as much complaining form the G6 owners than the M3 or SC owners..

    so isn't those 30 extra bucks worth to have a better gaming experience?

    Meh, i 'm not a fan of the price of micro sd cards.
    If it ran on mini-sd i'd be all for it, it's only AU$8 more expensive than a Slim or Mini-SD. [at bamboogaming]

    Did m3 actually say the m3lite will have full gba compatiblity? I won't be suprised if they took out the gba compatibility due to the smaller cart size.

    I had my m3 sd since december and I don't remember ever using their "cool" additional features. For that price, I would rather pick up a supercard lite AND ewin microsd from winsux for the same price.
