    *Update*
    Neoflash has released a new update for the R6 Gold & Silver.
    Apparently, this new update updates the old batch of R6 to have the same firmware as the new batch (see above).
    The update also fixes a few bugs. See Changelog below.

    What's interesting is the GBA Sized Slot-2

    EDIT: After looking closely, I kinda don't like the design looks childish and gives me a feeling of Cheap and unreliable.

    so these are actually out now? they've been updating the firmware for ages but the carts never seemed to be released..but that might just be because no one pays any attention to neoflash anymore so i never noticed. hmm.

    I'm pretty sure the r6 carts have been available for quite some time.
    Atleast at ic2005.com I know you could purchase the older versions months ago.

    Yes, the R6 Gold & Silver have been available for a while.

    However, these are updated versions of the R6 Gold & Silver.
    The new R6 Gold & Silver flashcarts have been available for pre-order purchasing since March 1st, 2008 but are just now being released & shipped, I believe.

    BTW, a dude from the Neoflash team is sending me one of these to review.

    Ah neat, I'm quite curious how these cards perform, they seem to have hardware saves and there's no info if they properly support download play and online.
    I know neoflash cards are usually more homebrew oriented but some basic commercial games features wouldn't hurt.

    The working is a bit misleading, 2-in-1 suggests a card with genuine dual purpose, but as you can tell be the pictures, it's really 1-in-2, it is a lite rumble pak with an add-on to fit it in a phat DS.

    But to please those who use their flash cards for playing backups, Neoflash really need to work some more on the compatibility.

    Isn't the R6 Gold the one with the motion sensor built into the cart? That seems to be the only interesting thing about them.

    I haven't tried but I read that it's not that good [​IMG], yes it's got built-in motion but that definitely won't overshine the lack of auto-dldi, horrid backup compatibility, etc. Not even speaking about download play.
    The idea of packing motion into the card really seems kinda cool to me since then a program can use motion and ram or motion and rumble or everything with a 3in1. But since it's all hampered by the sucky firmware and ancient hardware it doesn't seem to be worth buying over a more completed slot-1 solution and a DSMotion Pak.

    I think I would take a TTDS instead.

    Currently it's only good for homebrew, Dr Neo says he's working on the menu, but there doesn't seem to be much progress on getting more games working. Although some commercial games do work, if you want to load commercial games, the R6 currently is not the card for you.

    Well I've already got a cyclo but I guess even though it doesn't offer anything more except for the motion eh? Maybe I'll get an MK5 for the space, at least that way I don't have to buy another microsd [​IMG]. MK5 with builtin motion wouldn't be that bad.

    I have one of these, got it way back in January… well it arrived February, but I ordered it in January. I'm very happy with it, it takes my 4GB microSDHC without a problem. Runs any homebrew I want… not so much with the commercial games, but since I have the original carts I dumped the ROMs from, it isn't that depressing. I haven't tried Download Play, and I believe it does auto-DLDI now, I should check. I patch things manually anyway, it's as easy as double clicking them. I hear windows users have to do a whole thing with a command line or something, but I digress. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the product. It just hit DealExtreme like a week or two ago, but they've been for sale at ic2005 for a while. I was kinda sad, because at DX it costs $52 and I paid $70, but that's what I get for wanting it early. In my opinion, it's a great product. Not so much if you're a pirate.
