    No more is currently known about the card, other than the fact it will be released this month. Also no price has yet been set, but the eWin team are known for their great value for money.

    The eWin team also announced, that alongside the eWin 3, they will release their own branded rumble and memory expansion paks as an alternative to the official Nintendo ones, these are estimated to be priced at around only $6!

    Awesome, more Slot 1's yeh! ..

    The ram cart for $6 certainly sounds interesting, I have doubts about the final retail price though.

    I really really really hope it supports download play to non-flashed DSs.

    Dang, look at the build quality! I have one of them DS Dummy Cards of Ewin lying around, and the casing of those is very good as well. Compared to the first batch DS-X molds (it's apparently fixed now) this looks very nice to me. Now hoping it doesn't suffer slowdowns or has any lame filesystem/savetype hassle shit to it.

    Yeah, I'm still waiting for a good transflash slot 1 solution that has 100% DS compatibility that supports download play fully.. (aka a better DS-X) since the Acekard didn't quite live up to its claim.

    basically these are the features I (everyone) wants:

    -100% DS game compatibility (no half-working or slow games)
    -Full nonflashed download play support
    -Full automated save support (without problems and corruptions etc.)
    -Excellent homebrew compatibility (moonshell etc)
    -built in passme (so GBA games can be played on a slot 2 flashcart)
    -Working standby when DS is folded shut while on
    -Patch free drag and drop
    -Fair price

    I don't know if it's too far fetched to hope for something this perfect, but it seems like they are getting pretty close (ds-x, acekard, ninja x9, etc.)
    I'll cross my fingers and keep waiting

    You know all those things aren't that impractical, and I think DSX owners...are a little bit worried

    To play GBA ROMs from a slot-2 flashcard you won't need slot-1 NoPass functionality. [​IMG] But I agree that the function to boot slot-2 cards into DS mode is part of the 'perfect' solution.

    A feature I think you forgot is that the perfect solution should use removable media in the form of MicroSD [​IMG]

    Great, another slot-1 card. So how many do we have untill now?
    DS-Xtreme, NinjaPass X9, MicroNinja(with its two versions), AceKard, eWin, N-Card, original NinjaPass, and probably a few more that I forgot...
    This onslaught of Slot-1 cards needs to stop >_

    As a DS-X owner I can say I'm not worried at all. In fact I'm excited to see all these new Slot1 solutions coming to market. Especially the ones with removable storage, since that was the one thing I would have liked to change on the DS-X.

    I can't wait to see the GBATemp review of this card.

    This might be the slot 1 card I'll finally sink my money into... although I'm perfectly happy with my M3 to be honest. We'll see. Build quality seems pretty cool from those shots, so...

    What is there for them to worry about? That the pride in having bought an ultra-expensive slot 1 flash solution might go away? Well... I s'pose some of them might worry about that, but I'd say most don't care -- they're just interested in high compatibility and easiness of use.
