    This is kind of dumb.

    Unnecessary hassle when you can have more then one ROM easily accessed. Meh. Interesting, though.

    Good news for the romhacking and dev scene at the very least.

    Seriously? Only two games max and a SWITCH to change games? ...for $200?

    Man, it can be as revolutionary as you want (and IT ISN'T), but it should at least retail for one quarter of that price, if you want to sell it.

    Only 200 bucks, and from a brand like neoflash, it's gotta be good

    I love these retro flash carts. I've been following the scene ever since Totek released their first carts.

    Emulation is great, but for a lot of people nothing beats original hardware. (In my case, especially when playing those ancient game systems like Atari 2600.)

    This product looks cool but the price is waaaay too high. I can live with the space limitations but the price? Well, good luck with that....

    Exactly because there a nothing but good NES emulators these days some even play FDS games such as Super Mario 2 (The actual version not the obscure version the US got).

    I like N64 games but not that much. Still it is an interesting invention.

    Hey, at least the PowerPak (NES) has an excuse, having to deal with mappers of all sorts.

    This thing does not.

    I thought pirating was supposed to make things cheaper.

    Pirating is more about getting games that are coming out now (or even in the future) whereas collecting is more about getting games that were released on old consoles...

    Re the haters:
    It is pretty hard to emulate a lot of N64 games -- also there is a lack of decent adapters for N64 controllers for PC and other systems. If they can make a good N64 flash cart that is capable of handling the various save types then I think there will be a market for it. Many people would pay $200 for just a handful of games.

    It's interesting, but used N64 games are cheap. For $200 most people could get all the N64 games they would want to play. I liked the N64 and can't see buying my favorite 20 or so games costing more than that.

    Frankly, I think the problem with N64 emulation is just that the effort has not been made, Project 64 has been on 1.7 for a long time now.
    Look at Dolphin, that's emulating the Gamecube and Wii remarkably well, because everyday there is coding contributed to the open source project.

    Imagine where Project64 could be with that sort of commitment!

    I've been waiting a long time for this, but 200 dollars is simply much too expensive. A quarter of the price would be reasonable, although expensive.

    Isn't it better Just playing it on the wii or something else than paying 200$ with which you can get a new wii.

    You said it man.......it's NEO we are talking about here ( = thieves , liers , worst costumer respect etc..) and history proved time and again that their half assed efforts to produce decent hardware are alwas backed up by inadequate, uncomplete software development.
    Would I spend $ 200 on a flashcart which would let me flawlessly play EVERY N64 game out there ? I might think about it, it surely would be a future proof investment.
    Will I spend $ 200 on an unfinished product with lack of support whatsoever and limited functionality ? Hell no !
