    This sounds extremely interesting and worth waiting for. "All Game Can Be Rumble" really intrigues me. Does this mean even games that don't have rumble featured (ex: New Super Mario Brothers, Mario Hoops) can support rumble?

    I would also kill for a "save-anywhere" type feature for NDS on the flashcard. If I understand their Engrish correctly, this isn't happening on this model.

    " + No GBA games Suppot " ....doesnt sound like a great feature....but supposedly 100 percent NDS rom compatibility. Interesting indeed.

    No I think it's just refering to the real time save feature i.e. Saves are made directly to the SD card, as opposed being saved onto SRAM then backed up to the SD card.


    Rumble feature sounds kinda interesting, hopefully it'll be better than the official rumble pack lol. I'm a bit worried about the battery life though... like it's bad enough as it is with the Supercard so what's it going to be like with a rumble motor in there? Still the broken Engrish says otherwise...

    100% compatibility? I wonder if that means Opera works on it? Hmm...

    Well other companies are dropping GBA support for some of their newer released flashcarts (M3Pro and EZ4Lite Compact or EWin2 series)

    Not that surprising of a move with regards to the removal of GBA but with the addition of rumble support though I ask this question.. Is it still just Nintendo first party games that has rumble support?

    I think its a smart move for Supercard since GBA is rather cumbersome and a hassle on the SC anyway. Most of the games work, but the manual keystroke save method gets ridiculous. Playing DS on SC is excellent though, and this should only improve things.

    As for rumble, sure why not. But it better be at user's choice, and the SCLiteRUMBLE better be the same size as the current SCLite.

    Slot2 devices still have a lot going for them - I think this will become more apparent when the Slot1 stuff becomes widely available. We've gotten kinda used to what patching a rom can do for the user, so playing with a clean rom is gonna have its own drawbacks. I think SC's trying to highlight that difference with this new model.

    What a waste of time. I would rather then Supercard Lite with Opera Ram, that works with "ALL" games. So meaning you can simply load the game in RAM meaning 110% Compatability and you dont even have to have a MicroSD so its like 32 Megs Built in Memory/RAM + Expandly via MicroSD.

    Damn, no GBA support.


    They should really be updating their software for the SC Lite instead of making stupid products like this.

    Rumble.. yawn.

    This new cart seems like a waste of time that could be better spent giving more compatibility to the SC Lite.

    Romman will never read this post though so it's just a fart in the wind.

    hmm...in truth..rumble is kinda out dated (I mean even SOny themselves stopped putting rumble in thier controllers and honestly speaking, they brought rumble into main stream..yes I am aware they were not the first ones)... and u never know...nintendo might pull another "innovative" game out of their butt that uses the rumble a lot...I mean I am sure there are the same amount of ppl going "pfft", a touch screen, how boring....when DS first came out..but then came wario ware and other games...if this is truly well done..if nintendo makes a crazy kick ass mario fishing game.... we can play! XD

    Sony stopped putting rumble in their controllers because they infringed on patents.

    I thought Sony stopped with Rumbling features due to them not wanting to cough up the money to pay for a licence from Immersion..

    Though this Supercard is a step up from the M3 Pro line, that's for sure..

    sorry~ bad sentence structure there. I am aware of the patient infringment, what I meant to say was that one of the biggest pushing force of rumble enabled games is no longer putting it on their system ( or able to for that matter). Rumble is kinda last generation. But like I said..I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo makes an awesome rumble only game or something ...or incorporate rumble into wario ware in a way

    I love that they abandonded GBA support cause hopefully that means CHEAPER kits.

    Rumble would be a nice added feature, I havent tried the official but I did want to try it. However rumble on all games kinda scares me and leads me to believe it to be more like a vibrator....i mean is there any real way to add rumble support to non rumbling games without hacking the rom itself?

    Either way my eyes will be on this.

    Rumble is still being used on PCs and every console/handheld except for Sony's PS3 and PSP..

    Don't get what being a ten year old technology has anything to do with it being viable or not..
