    New G6 DS and M3 DS Real Information

    Plus pics!








    [​IMG]
    The GBAlpha team have spilled a few beans on the G6 DS and M3 DS Real. Here we have an image of what the two carts will look like, along with some new information.

    The G6 DS and M3 Real will boast true 100% ROM compatibility and the ability to mimic an authentic NDS game cart 1:1. G6 DS will boast impressive USB 2.0 speeds with 16Gbit models first available, but higher capacity cards will follow. The M3 DS Real will support external flash cards.

    No more information (including pricing and retail dates) is yet available. The team are keeping tight lipped to prevent others copying their technology. Expect more details closer to the two products release dates.

    So looks like Download Play will be a big feature, brilliant!

    If these claims prove to be true, these could be fantastic carts. The only things that needs to be made sure of it gets homebrew support (likely DLDI) and support of passme function. Both of which i find highly likely to be included.

    I am greatly interested in these carts, especially the g6 due to my wading opinion of the use of microsd cards. (they are becoming somewhat inconvenient)

    Don't assume that yet, although that would be brilliant.

    I'm happy that they indeed aren't releasing the actual specs yet, as the 'competitors' do indeed have no shame copying from eachother.

    Also, once I'll have some more money I'll probably buy a G6 Real and a DS Lite.

    So I guess G6DS Real will be released first? That makes it kind of pointless to release a Simply version wouldn't it?

    "The M3 DS Real will support external flash cards."

    Could someone reiterate this please? Are they just talking about a nopass feature?

    These seem very interesting. I just hope they're not asking for too much money for them. I wonder how long its going to be before we get an R4 real [​IMG]

    I'm not quite sure that R4 and M3 are still tied like with the R4 and M3 Simply. However in a conversation I had with an R4 Team rep, they indicated they were working on a new product. So who knows [​IMG]

    I guess the "external flash cards" part just means a MicroSD-card.

    guys sorry to break the chain but i am a noob on this site, is there a beta system download for the M3 simply? I cant find it anywhere, some guy I know said that it lets you reset to the ROM screen by pressing all buttons and you can alter brightness with shoulder buttons......any you guys tell me wher I can get it?

    Sorry for the link breaker, thanks

    Forgive my ignorance here, but what's the difference going to be between the M3 Simply and the M3 Real, for instance?

    okay...now I'm gonna hold my horses, current state of ez-flash isn't very much to my liking and the competition is stiff

    I'm sure it is:

    1. External Flash Card
    2. External Flash Memory Card
    3. Transflash Memory Card
    4. Micro-SD Memory Card

    The M3 Simply was made by R4 (and restickered by M3), while the M3 Real will be from the M3 team.
    For now the only known differences are that M3 Real will support a some sort of Mimic function, which will most probably boot a game without even showing the M3 menu or something.
    Also I believe they promised something with GBA compatibility, most probably in combination with a Slot2 cart, not much details from this though.
    Also the interface will probably be somewhat different and it will probably cost more money...
