    i think that the new iedge is really the new cycloDSI but relisted early and unfinished to make as much money before the new dsi ll is relisted with ant pirate on it

    No it's not. People shouldn't assume clones are really by the same manufacturers.

    You sir, are an idiot.

    EDGE and CycloDS are two different companies, its just that the EDGE Card is a clone of the CycloDS and a very good clone at that.

    Observation over the past year has led me to believe the Edge is a daughter product of the Cyclo label. Why would Cyclo make the Edge? To compete on the low end. When one site would go down the other did also. That happened at least three different occasions last year and this year. The build quality is almost identical to the cyclo, like they were made at the same plant. So dont call someone and idiot because you think you know. There are others here who believe that the Edge could be a cyclo product in disguise.

    Then what would be the reason for EDGE having a Chinese domain? Would they just be an offshoot of Team Cyclops working much further away?

    I don't. They often disappear for a long time but they've always come back. That's what earned them the nickname, the "Phantom Dev Team".

    I don't think so. That "new" DSi will only be a normal one with a few more inches in the screens. I don't think nintendo will make a change in the software, it's just a matter of Hardware.

    The DSi XL doesn't look worth it to me.
    The wii2 looks more worth it.

    The iEDGE is like any other flashcart they just copied their DSL one.

    I 'm pretty sure that the Cyclops and EDGE teams are different teams.

    A fact:
    The Team Cyclops website is in proper English (and only English), while the EDGE website is trilingual (Chinese, English and Indonesian).

    I was here... before...
    iEdge new manual is based on Cyclo manual v1.4 look, feel and examples.

    They moved to China for ... practical reasons, they removed the onboard firmware to avoid legal issues.
