    Hopefully the price isnt too high. I might buy one if the price is right. So does the GBA emulation mean we can finally load gba games from a flashcart?

    You make it sound like this is the first flashcart to have GBA emulation from slot-1, its not. The iPlayer had it first.

    I don't think other flash carts can do this sort of thing. This DSTWO card most likely has additional ram to compensate for the lack of a slot 2 device.

    With all these additional features.. this will most likely come with a not so great price tag. =/

    If the GBA emulation is really, really good, I will definitely get one just for the sake of playing GBA games on the XL.
    But I'm very picky, if a game doesn't run smooth with perfect audio and speed then I'd just stick with my GBA SP2 and M3Perfect SD.
    By the way I still use a slot 2 Supercard SD just for homebrew on my DSL, and the fact that the card is still supported by the official team after so long is amazing and tells you a great deal about how serious and committed is this company.
    Like I said , regardless the fact that I just bought an AK2i for my upcoming XL, I will gladly by one of these if they get the GBA emulation just right.

    Wow this sure looks cool, but I just ordered an iPlayer a few days ago so I wont be getting this, as for GBA I can use my PSP or iPlayer, but still this looks so cool [​IMG]

    If they could only seal the deal with raw video playback, and other abilities... to rival Moonshell, maybe? If they can do that within EOS...

    Also, more info on the enhanced emulation plz

    Lastly, at least a price range would be nice

    I don't see them doing much for the GBA emulator outside some speed optimization tweaks for the new hardware (if this is indeed new hardware or just a commercial ROM-enabled iPlayer). If the game didn't work or had crashing issues on the iPlayer, I highly doubt that fact will change on the DSTWO as all the former's emulator was in the first place was a quick-and-dirty gpSP port. The SNES emulation is the stickler for me - if it's nailed, I'll buy it immediately as I find myself playing my DS far more than my PSP nowadays. Also, it'd be nice to see that SNES emulator released for the iPlayer as well (unless there's a hardware restriction involved). Movie playback is a big 'meh' given the limited resolution of the DS screens.

    As an aside, I'd love to see a *really* well-done PDF plugin for this.

    That skin looks childish x].
    Other than that... Looking forward to seeing reviews of this to know if it is well worth the money [​IMG]
    Hopefully, SuperCard will be keeping up with the latest games and actually staying up to date!

    I would prefer to see one thousand times more a photo of the flash cart internals than seeing the menu.. Showing fancy system is just marketing, nothing more...

    For the record, I'm not an acerkard/r4/... fanboy, I have 2 supercard and don't use any other brand...
