    The neoflash team is too busy at making too many new different devices and don't even bother at updating thier "old" ones... That's not a good commercial strategy. They were innovating with MagicKeys but I think this one will be a total failure (considering the others lite flashkit).

    well, 512 Mbit is ridiculous!

    but the MicroSD version could be interesting! it seems like it will stick out only a little:

    Helmut hit it on the head. They are like Buy the Neoflash.....wait that doesn't work....hmmm buy the Neo2005 or whatever the second card is called (I'm not getting up) Then they are like ...crap...here buy this MK3 and yes the 512 is a huge joke unless this thing cost like 20 bucks...then I might concider it just for my collection

    OK, now it gets interesting:

    - only the TF part is sticking out
    - comes in three different colors
    - SUPPORTS CLEAM ROMS (NO PATCHING, 100% COMPATIBLITY) [​IMG]
    - 256M flash, 128M ram
    - rom compression supported

    (source: yyjoy.com, neoflash.com)

    That sounds pretty impressing... but I won't believe it until its out... after all it's from NEOFLASH [​IMG]

    No patching and 100% compatibility... Well, let's hope it.
    Remember the MK2/3 episode, they were supposed to be the perfect solution for homebrew, as a result, stylus don't even work in some homebrew.

    I'll sit back and wait for the reviews. Personally, I don't expect to hear anythign but profanity from those who dare buy these. Don't misunderstand me, I hope they finally get their act together. It's just that history dictates that these will bomb worse than Paris Hilton doing anything.

    Wow, sounds pretty interesting. There will even be an SD version for those who don't mind the cart sticking out more or have a normal DS.

    The MK2/3 wasn't a bad device all in all. By running the games from the GBA slot with the NEO2 as opposed to the NDS slot and including a buffer it sounds like they will have sorted out any slowdown issues. As for compatibility I don't quite understand how there won't be a need to patch games this time round, as they're being loaded from the GBA slot... maybe it is done real time on the cart or something, either way it's pretty interesting stuff. NeoFlash never stated the MK2/3 had 100% compatibility anyways (actual compatibility was probably only about 60%), so if they are stating the NEO2 has 100% compatibility then I have it in good faith that is the case (wishful thinking!), but I guess we'll just have to see. =)

    Got a feeling it'll be quite expensive though. >_>

    according to yyjoy.com the NEO2 Lite will come out in ~ 3 weeks, NEO2 TF and SD will be available in 3-4 weeks! the NEO2 Lite is intended for the low-end market and therefore will propably be pretty cheap...

    first pics of the SD version (which also takes RS-MMC cards, the color is see-through black):

    looks pretty crappy and cheap... and the sizes (256, 512, 1024 Mbit) are still ridiculous... [​IMG]

    Honestly this "company" has a lot of PR work to do. They have seriously screwed every one of their customer time and time again. Who would buy this when there is a 99% chance that there will be a problem and the Neoteam will just say "okay buy a new CART" to fix the problem. Worst customer support EVER and I think the company is a joke. If this cart works they should just release the 1Gb version for like 10 bucks to show the community that their product actually works. And yes they need to stop dicking around with 256,512....shit even 1gb versions....come on now....give away the 1Gb versions and sell the 8Gb version....that's my advice....

    Bad advice. Remind me not to take anything you say seriously 'HugeCock'.

    I think the pics look pretty interesting. Nice to see the DS Lite sized cart competition heating up. Increased competition = better products = good for the consumer.

    Thanks for the updated info TheShaolinMonk!

    What the hell are you talking about sirdaver?
    I have the NEOFlash, I have the MK2 and MK3 and all are shitty products that don't do what they say they promised they would. My SuperCard, M3, M3 Mini, G6, G6 Lite, EZ-Flash II....shit you know what even my EZ-Flash III and EFA are all better then the NEOCrap I have purchased in the past. Due to the companies terrible history of CUSTOMER NEGLECT at this point there is no way I would EVER concider this product. How is it bad advice? Here is a break down of NEO's history with me:

    Neo: Check out our product
    Me: /buys it
    Me: wait it doesnt do what you guys said it will do
    (4 months later)
    Okay we cant fix the problem so please buy this cart instead
    Me: okay
    Me: Wait there is no software for it?
    Neo: Please wait
    (3 months later)
    Neo: It's still buggy but maybe this will hold you over?
    Me: You guys f'in suck
    Neo: Okay here buy this cart instead
    me: I see a pattern.....
