I've heard rumors and little things about the DSTWO but is there any reason for me to upgrade to a Supercard DSTWO when I have a perfectly working AK2i?

From what I heard, SCDS2 will be an upgrade of SCDS1 with extra hardware to emulate SNES and GBA, and probably video playback similar to the iplayer capability. However most likely it will be one of the most expensive carts as well. Acekards are like $15-20 and SCDS2 will be $50 or more. Users with DSi or DSi XL will most likely be interested since they have no slot2 for GBA games. Whether or not it's going to be worth the money, remains to be seen.

SCDS2 is more like $40 but probably $50+ at a US dealer.

Acekard pro: Cost, AKAIO, Norm

SCDS2 pro: Long lasting team, gba emu, snes emu, media playback like iplayer

Ultimately it comes down with do you need the features.

Wow, if it can emulate GBA then I'll definitely consider getting it.

i recommend both!!
How can you recommend? SCDS2 hasn't even been released yet. Also I don't think it will be a direct competitor to the Acekard 2i, since the carts clearly offer options for different users.

Ak2i = focuses on compatibility, cheap => good for people who just want to play DS games & don't care about other things.
SCDS2 = focus on features, expensive => an all in one solution kinda thing.

If anything, SCDS2 will shake the Cyclo DS market, since SCDS2 will clearly offer more for about the same price. Other carts like M3i & Ez-Flash Vi are somewhere in the middle. Although I have to say that from my view SCDS2-type cart is the future of flashcart. Sooner or later other groups will come up with similar devices.

Probably just the movie player ability and GBA emulation ... if the price goes higher than $40 I'd rather spend a bit more on an AceKard 2i and an iPlayer ... ( No offence to SC Team but their game fixes are SLOW ... making most people ... you know ... -------->

Anyways .. the iPlayer has GBA emulation too with a convert free movie player so yea... )

2)will the supercardTWO come with OPERA mini web browser? Probably not if I understand what you are referring to.

3) does moonshell support xvid files? No.
