xport or sharkport?

Hey all,
Since I'm really thinking of getting NCAA 2004 (even though I have 2003, but since USC is on the cover) I wanted to get a sharkport for roster transfers, and to save space on my memory cards. I know Interact got bought out by Madcatz, but I wasn't sure if they just got the gameshark or the sharkport as well.

Bestbuy was selling the Xport. Now from what I can gather, Xport is the same as a sharkport, only with different file extensions. Is this true? It's made by Datel, which makes the Action Replay, which I believe is the same as the Gameshark.

BTW, it's a cool device that allows you to transfer game saves from a memory card to your computer and back. I thought maybe it came with a proprietary memory card that you can take to and from your computer... but it's only a direct USB link, so you need to have the PS2 and computer in close proximity. Still, gamefaqs has tons of saved games, and I figure if I ever rent a game and want to unlock everything, it's a pretty neat way to do it. Also, I can archive those massive sports files when I'm not using them... and import saved rosters.

Yes, they're the same. I bought an Xport last week and downloaded blacklover's rosters from All I had to do was change the extension from .sps to .xps.
