    Romman has announced that the Supercard MicroSD will be out at the end of the month. It will fit flush with the Lite. No word on if it will be the same color as the dust cover or the traditional Supercard blue/purple.

    Link? This thread is worthless without any proof.

    This comes directly from Romman on MSN. He's told a couple other people on the Supercard forums as well.

    Hopefully it will be in traditional ds colors, otherwise, what's the use of having an aesthetically flush cart when it's bright purple? Tell him that appearances count.

    Well seeing that it's out in about a week I think it's too late to change the color even if it is purple. They are already being manufactured!! Hopefully they will just be the DS colors.

    Did he give any idea on the price? It would be nice too see
    one of these lite cartridges with front access to the SD like
    the mini’s.

    OK..you spoke to the guy on MSN. Yet, you have no log or screenshot of it. I saw your post on another form, where 4 of your 5 total posts were in that thread alone. Take note that I do not doubt a Supercard Lite is going to become. However, as Vulpix stated, provide some evidence of your chat. The majority of us do not know you, your reputation or anything substancial to simply take your word.

    By the way, the line I read from Romman on the official forum was back on May 26th, in response to someone's inquiry if Supercard would ever release a card using micro-SD:
    "That's a good Idea. Micro SD SuperCard."

    That's it..that's all he says on the forums about it and nothing more. Not exactly evidence of its development either. Of course, when I see a pic, then I'll believe it is coming to a store far away that charges a hefty shipping fee.

    I really don't care if you believe me or not. Of couse I didn't take a screenshot. Who takes screenshots of thier MSN convos? Anyway we'll find out soon enough, won't we?

    I don't know what thread you are referring to, but I posted only once in the thread and I have over 100 posts there (this is on the Unofficial Supercard Site). I was saying I probably wouldn't buy it and get the M3 MicroSD instead and complained that they didn't return my email, but then I got a hold of him on MSN after that so it's all good. He also told a few other people the same thing on MSN.

    Believe me or not, I don't care. You'll find out I'm right at the end of the month.

    with the all the supercard related announcements this year, there has been a 1 week transition between the product being announced (with pictures, etc) and it going on sale, so i find it to be a bit strange that there was no official announcement with pictures and product samples at the usual places like yyjoy when there is under a week left before it goes on sale...

    Damnit! If this is true I'm gonna be pissed off! I Just got my Supercard MiniSD. *sigh*

    Oh well....If the price is right, it couldn't hurt to sell on my old kit and get a new one...

    Last time I looked at the MicroSD cards they only went up to 512mb. As this changed? If not you can't fit any more roms on than the G6. I just hope they decide to do the supercard MicroSD colours to match the DS lite. The purple Supercard Mini I have looks ugly.

    Micro SD is up to 1GB atm, but within some time (this year for sure) the 2GB micro SD carts will pop up!

    Nah, I don't think he was lying (no reason to, anyway)
    I think it's still under developpment, that's all.

    They better do quick because people are all buying EZ-4 lites and G6 lites...

    Hi!
    I've been selling SuperCards for nearly two years and buy direct from romman - the SuperCard team have not pre-announced any products during that time, so I do not expect a SuperCard Lite announcement until they have the product ready to ship.
    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, I DID talk to him and he did tell me it would be ready for the beginning of the month. He told a few others too. I guess it's a similar thing to Danny from M3, he keeps telling people the M3 Lite will be out in 2 weeks. 2 weeks later they ask about it again, and it will be out in 2 weeks [​IMG]

    We should keep a list of promises and see who is reliable [​IMG]
    I'd like to see a product roadmap.
    People seem to want flash cards fully integrated into their consoles - I'd like to see a way to augment the CPU - what else is needed?
