With all the slot 1 cards coming out, I have a feeling that many people are buying them just so they can say that they have the newest technology To be perfectly honest, I dont need a slot 1 solution because my slot 2 card already does everything that I want/need it to. I know alot of people will say "i want download play!" My response to you is: if your so willing to buy a whole new kit to play download play, then you need to go out there and buy the real game I think that the only reason that so many companies are making these slot 1 devices is because people will buy them, because they're new. (that and because companies probably believe that they wont survive if they stay with "old" technology versus matching technology of other rival companies.) Comments please EDIT: could someone add "no GBA compatibility" to the poll answers please?
