    usually with a flash cart, you either have a menu, that you can select the rom you want to play, or you have to flash it with the rom you want to play.

    I was thinking of getting a Flashcart for my nintendo 64 because it still works but I have lost many games, but I'm in a dead end... This seems interesting
    Edit: What? 99 bucks? No way!

    Great!
    I don't think a lot of people will be interested in a N64 flashcard but great!

    Damn, $99 is a bit steep. Although I'm sure more than a few people are ready to put down that kind of money for it.

    I'd regard $99 for access to a consoles's entire library quite good value.

    That's awesome, and half the price of the 64Drive (whenever it comes out).

    Anybody have any info on compatibility? On SD card size limit? I will be getting this if it has near perfect compatibility like the 64Drive supposedly does.

    Why would anyone want to buy an N64 flash card?!

    a) it is very expensive, and b) you can perfectly emulate N64 games a whole bunch of new consoles and the PC...

    Everyone posting in this thread has revealed themselves to be -snip-

    $99 is cheap as hell for an n64 backup device

    $99 is actually a pretty good price if you consider the cost of other N64 flashcarts,

    People need to understand that these cost more to construct than a DS flashcard and there's not as big of a market for them so of course they will be kinda expensive

    NOT TO MENTION N64 emulation can get to be shit at times (LOL WHY DOES Pokemon stadium not have the words for the moves? What? graphic glitches galore?)

    99 dollars for every N63 games every made is a deal, no matter how you look at it.

    Because there is no emulator on PC or on a console that runs every game...much less perfectly.

    Are you on drugs? Back to the topic, yeah 99 bucks is quite a small fee to pay for all the N64 games library. I'll think about it

    Very interesting! And not a bad price really. A little under half of what a V64/CD64/Z64 would cost you this days, alot more reliable and alot easier to use. I'm not so sure about the installation of the CIC chip tho. As far as I know there isn't a CIC chip that works as a global loader, at least that was the case for the CD64/V64/Z64. You have to have various carts as bootloaders depending on the game. I also wonder how well it handles it the games with copy protection, and whether you'd need to find cracked roms to play them like was needed on previous N64 backup devices.

    No I'm just highlighting the fact that everyone who had posted above me clearly wasn't around in the heyday of N64 copier devices, which never approached a $99 price point, and are probably -snip- who are spoiled by $5 chinese clone ds flashcarts. feel free to notice that I've been around on gbatemp since before you probably knew it existed

    I'd like one, I have (had) the gamegear, megadrive and SNES versions, but I'm not a big N64 fan.

    The price is great, I'll look more into it
