    Hello R4 fans. Just bringing up the news of the new R4 that is coming out.

    http://digg.com/nintendo/R4DS_R4_Revolutio...croSDHC_support

    Not sure how it'll be different from the Edge or other chips. I'm assuming they might take the spring loaded flush away and probably better hardware for the chip.

    I'm a fan of the R4DS, though I probably won't be buying one of these...who needs 4gb - 8gb of NDS ROMs? [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting, though [​IMG]

    Never liked R4... Too cheap-looking and far too simple for me. I like loads and loads of features on a flashcart [​IMG]

    BTW, what the heck of a source is this? It's not even an official news from the team.

    Yeah thanks fot the news but this is totally irrelevant to me. I mean what the R4 offers me at this moment is much much more than enough.

    well, there is a homebrew musicplayer now that plays with the lid closed. so SDHC support comes in handy

    oh and for the record: i am perfectly satisfied with the old r4's features. i dont really need more [​IMG]

    No proof, and still not interested in the R4... No features= No sale. But that's just me

    If it's true then I'm surprised. Where are all the R4 fans who wanted SDHC?

    EDIT: is this the new R4... DS N5 Revolution ?

    Team R4 has finalized the newest version of the R4DS and has released it into the wild! The version 3 of the R4DS is set to be released on March 10, 2008

    so the SDHC support is a new cart, or is a firmware? id hate to go buy another one..

    I don't know why anyone would buy an R4 now, there are much better cards with better supports that are cheaper now.

    We haven't seen any previous mention of this, let alone confirmation, from any resellers (except Amazon) or the R4 team themselves. It really looks fake - either false advertising or a clone of another product. If the R4 team were REALLY about to release an SDHC compatible device then all of the scene websites as well as web stores would already know about this...

    Besides, with the other devices in the market these days why would anybody still be wanting an R4 [​IMG]

    Cause the R4 has a huge userbase, that's why [​IMG] Although the R4 don't have much features, it still works where it was made for and plus the reliability gives this card a good reputation.
    If this news is true it could be very good news for the R4 users [​IMG]

    I still didn't get a new flash cart yet, waiting for the Edge to get in stock but if the R4 is really bringing a new card I'll probably will wait for that.

    There really is no point to this. The only change I see is that it has SDHC support and nothing new unless they add new things via firmware updates. So there really is no point. I might as well stick with my old and trusty R4.

    Either that or it's a really blatant rip off.

    Yeah I had a 1GB card and it was fine, then got a free 2GB from Team Cyclops and it's massive. I only keep some games at a time, have an iPod for music/movies and other things. My card is only 1GB (even less) full at most times. [​IMG]

    lol N5. Doesn't sound anywhere near as good as R4 imo. I'm pretty sure that's the "R4 SDHC" that's been promised to come out.. I mean it even already has firmwares 1.15 and 1.16, so it's obviously the same as the R4.

    Anyhow, this should have been released around when they announced an "R4 SDHC" was going to come out, now with all these new cheap slot-1 SDHC cards such as DSTT and EDGE, this has a lot of competition.

    I will have a good laugh when this comes out and SDHC is with it, then a week later a sudden influx of updates makes it better than Toy Top, CycloDS, SuperCard, and Acekard RPG in one. Probably never going to happen though.

    Oh.



    Great, I suppose. The N5 looks like a rip of the R4 website with the logo replaced with a bad one.
