    Im not sure on what to get.

    Price wise, its $15 cheaper to get the G6 w/passcard 3.

    Compatability seems to be really good with both. Although Xtremes team seems more involved in updates.

    Ive heard bad things about peoples internal memory on the G6 becoming corrupt and unreplaceable. What are the chances?

    I want to play GBA games also. Does Xtreme allow this?

    From this it's obvious you haven't kept up with the m3/g6 team which arguably is the most dilligent (if not cumbersome) in providing updates often. What are the chances of the g6 becoming corrupt? With proper care, very low I'd say. Does it happen to certain units? I'd say most definitely.

    ds-x = NO GBA SUPPORT AT ALL. NONE. READ REVIEWS PLEASE.

    if you only want to buy one thing for all of your gaming needs, get the g6lite/passme combo. if you want single cart multiplayer, get the ds-x. if you want both, get a g6 and a ds-x.

    Kinda the same line of thought I have, except I'm looking at a G6Lite/AceKard combo. [​IMG]

    My prior post was just touching on if the OP only wanted to purchase 1 flash cart for his gaming needs.

    Ill probably get the G6 for now, then get the Xtreme later down the line. Anyone have any site recommendations? Lowest ive seen it was for $110 with Passcard 3.

    Yoshimashin, I have a G6, and ordered a DS-X. Better stuff, heh.
    Anyways, a good store is http://shop.01media.com
    And no, I am not advertising beacuse I said that link 2 times in 3 posts.

    I wouldn't recommend anyone else other than realhotstuff if you're in the US.

    No one really knows yet, no one has tested. I know ds-x failed as a passme to bootup the m3. And m3/g6 is from the same team. So it's up in the air really.
