    This thing looks like it'll blow every other SNES flashcart out of the water, and apparently they're not too far away from shipping. Not only does it support pretty much every major chip, it's the only cart I've ever seen to support byuu's MSU1 spec (http://byuu.org/snes/msu1/), though there's not much out there that uses it right now.

    The only drawback to it that I can see is the obvious price jump over other SNES carts - Stone Age Gamer said that the price of the board itself will probably retail for close to $200.

    The only thing I'm waiting on is SA-1 support (for Mario RPG), The rest of the chips, including Super FX, I really could care less about. I'm still thinking about getting the one from retrousb, but the potential for SA-1 support is making me hold off...

    I've seen it for preordering at $190. I'd probably get an UFO8 over it any day. I mean, I know the UFO8 has crappy support compared to it... but $190? Eh.

    I really hope that someday we can get a decent SNES cart that'll emulate everything.

    For now I'm stuck with the horrid Super Disk Interceptor... at least I can use it to play imports.
