GBAtemp Review

G6DS Real Review


ROM Compatibility

Reviewers have found no problems with playing.

Download play, claimed to be perfect, isn't. Some games work, but some don't. However, recent system software updates have shown that the G6 Team can improve Download play compatibility.

Homebrew Compatibility

System software 2.2B brought with it DLDI autopatching. All homebrew that supports DLDI should now work automatically when run from "My Card" in the G6DS menu.

G6 Skins

Since system software 2.3, a lot of skins has been made, you can find them here : G6DS Real Skins
