I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed by all the DS homebrew devices out there so I need some help from the pro homebrew people out there to decide whats best for me to make the most of a 100+ dollars investment.

Well I already own a PSP, so im more in the homebrew scene to play backupped DS games and not so much for the media aspect. Also, I have a 1 gig SD(not mini) memory card already.

Given all that I was considering buying a G6 Lite Combo. But the total for the combo would come out to be approximately the same as the cost for this supercard combo:


Then I read that the supercard has lower quality than the m3 adaptor, and that the passcard 3 is the best passme device on the market at the moment. So now i'm considering buying this combo:


So between these three, what do you think would be best for me?

G6 Lite
Great looking menu
Menu is interactive(touch screen usage)
Can swap game saves
Multiple save files per game
Perfect DS and GBA playback
Fits Flush in DS Lite
Simple Plug and Play
Cant dump game cards
Supposedly has a crappy gba menu
Price:$99.99+$29.99 = Approximately $130

Everything you need to start immediately in one combo
1 gig of memory
$15 dollars off on sale
Fits flush in DS lite
Cheaper than M3
Lower quality than M3
Not compatible with the memory card I already have
Sold out(But I can wait)

Best thing on the market for DS homebrew
$40 dollars off on sale
Passcard 3-best passme device
Highest Quality
Good amount of memory
Very expensive
Combo does not include USB reader device
Does not fit flush in DS lite
Sold out(Doesn't really matter to me)
Price:$139.99+$9.99 for USB reader= approximately $150

So i'm just wondering which one would be the best for me. Also, is the increase in quality from Supercard to M3 worth the $25 dollars more? Sorry the post was so long and THANKS!

Where did you find an m3 for that much?!

I got my m3 and pc3 for like 120 dollars american.

Look around at other places, but the M3 is your best bet. SD version.

Watch out, too, some Supercard SDs are FAKES.

Wow thanks for the fast reply and where did you get the m3 and pc3 for 120?! and did it come with a usb reader? Thanks!

O yea the $150 combo includes a 1 gig memory card and the usb reader.

Just noticed that.

Well you can reall cut some costs down by not picking up another card, if you have an SD card I'll find a deal with the SD M3.

Don't you have a card reader on the front of your computer tower?

I got a CF version for 120 with shipping at gamersection.ca.

Here's an M3 SD and Passcard 3 for 105 dollars USD, with I believe 10 dollars shipping?


Also, a reader and writer here...

Well I think my dad has a sd memory card reader.

But is it really annoying that the M3 just juts out of the DS lite? If its really annoying i mite just go for the supercard lite. Is the downgrade of quality worth the change in cartridge size? Thanks!

Good choice. I have the CF M3 and I don't care how big it is. It runs everything I want it to.

Awesome thanks for the positive feedback. Now i feel much better about buying it thanks.

Actually the best key is the super key by supercard.

For supercard.

The Passcard 3 was made by M3 team.

That was your opinion, Acid. Not a fact.

they both work equal, I don't believe there is any differance between them other than brandname.

correct Superkey and Passcard 3 have the exact same hardware it's just what logo you prefer on the flash screen superkey or passcard? I used flashme so I don't have one :D
