    Supercard Rumble announced!

    Upgrade yet again!







    Not sure why Supercard felt it appropriate to tell only MaxConsole, which is a respectable news site, but here we go. According to the Supercard Team, a Rumble series of products in SD, Mini-SD and Lite flavors are coming soon. Let's have a look at the promised features:



    · Built-in Rumble System.

    · Custom system allows ALL games to use the Rumble System.

    · 100% DS games compatibility with perfect save function.

    · New Power Save design for extending playing time.

    · High speed Read/Write system for supporting high speed flash memory card without any framerate loss.

    · Supports compressed ROMS.

    · Supports Software Reset to main menu to choose another game.

    · Supports saving to flash memory card directly to never lose your save.

    · Compact menu system for multigames support.

    · Compatible with MoonShell to extend your DS into a multimedia system.

    · No GBA games support.



    There is no release date as of yet, but we recommend staying tuned to GBATemp and your favorite online retailers for news on pre-ordering.

    No GBA support killed the rumble card star.

    From every complaining Supercard owner concerning the GBA support, I don't see this as a negative. Besides, if you want strong GBA compatibility, then you are already shopping for a competing card (EZ-Flash IV, G6, M3).

    Well, since I already own a supercard which does play GBA games, I'm glad they took out a redundant thing to add something new... But how are they going to do for the few times the GBA cart is accessed? (daigasso, pokémon, etc)

    Yeah, I'm looking at the G6 lite plus a Slot 1 solution. If supercard had improved GBA support instead of adding rumble, I would have been happy and went out and bought it to replace my supercard miniSD. And why such a random feature to add? More RAM would have been more useful. I've seen people asking for more RAM, more GBA support, but I haven't seen anyone asking for rumble support in games that have no rumble.

    I agree that such a card would, for a lack of a better term, kick ass. I don't know what is behind Supercard's logic, but it is nice to see another breakthrough, albeit minor as most people aren't so hyped about Nintendo's Rumble Pak. Perhaps, Supercard's will be far superior..or not.

    I for one never play gba games using my supercard lite, even if it had 100% gba support, I still wouldn't play it. Then again, I never bought a GBA either, since it didn't have any games that I liked. Played a lot on my VBA emulator, but eh, whatever.

    I agree that its good to see supercard doing something different, I'm all for new technology. I just wish that they had gotten their priorties straight.

    I predicted a SuperCard announcement along with their upcoming performance update but I never expected this. I was expecting a Slot 1 solution design as this seems to just be a cop out.

    "Well, we have no slot 1 for you but hell here is the rumble your missing anyway!"

    Romman stop wasting your time with this stuff and release updates for your loyal customers who purchased other Supercard products.

    For the lack of GBA support. Couldn't we make a GBA emulator for a solution that doesn't have GBA support? This looks like a cool Idea. As long as its not much more than a normal supercard I might pick one up.

    I'm not too sure about this. I absolutely do NOT want something inside a supercard shaking - hell, I won't even *touch* a Supercard for fear that the body oils on my hand might warp the gentle plastic

    Why am I not surprised that a quick post search reveals you're a G6 fanboy and Supercard troll? Begone.

    rumble is a waste of time for sure.

    · 100% DS games compatibility with perfect save function.

    What i really hope is their 100% compat feature is enabled among all their products. NOT JUST the rumble one.

    There's fanboyism in PIRACY DEVICES?

    I'm honestly shocked.

    I can care less for gba games, so this is actually some good news to me, but what about the old SC, is it going to be left behind?
