SuperCard Lite Rumble for the Nintendo DS Lite
Our sister site at Game Addicts have put up a review of the SuperCard Lite Rumble from Brando. For those of you who are out of the loop, the SuperCard Lite Rumble is a piece of hardware that looks like the Slot 2 cover on the Nintendo DS Lite, except that it comes equipped with a microSD memory card slot for you to store all your homebrew programs and ROMs. It also has a built-in rumble feature to give a greater sense of realism when you indulge in games such as Metroid Pinball and the ilk.
Before you can actually use the SuperCard Lite Rumble, it is imperative that you actually flash your Nintendo DS Lite beforehand, but if you don’t want to void the warranty through this process, the other alternative would be purchasing a NoPass or Passthrough device which fits into the Slot 1. Be forewarned that using NoPass, PassThrough, and other similar solutions will greatly reduce your DS Lite’s battery life while you game away. Once you have done that, you’re ready to rock and roll with a slew of homebrew programs written by a robust DS homebrew community.
Other than the advantage of testing your programming skills for the Nintendo DS Lite, you can also use the SuperCard Lite Rumble to carry your entire library of games on a single microSD card. The amount of games which can be stored depends on the size of the microSD card, so getting a 1GB capacity would be a wise move. Assuming the average DS ROM weighs in at 75MB, you can store close to 15 games on the go, leaving your original DS carts safe and sound in their protective boxes. Just make sure you don’t download ROMs of games where you don’t have the original as that is tantamount to piracy. The SuperCard Lite Rumble is currently available from Brando for $36.
