    same reason many other PCBs have seemingly unused contacts
    for debugging, re-flashing/re-programming (depending on type of media) etc..

    You have to take in mind, i've been told over irc:

    - €20 is for the linker only
    - €25 for the Flashcart

    Total €45 (without shipping i pressume)

    I'm pretty sure that's just the bare PCB. It's missing the FPGA, and the NAND chips are probably on the other side.

    EDIT: Man, I love being correct [​IMG]

    Why not have a microsd like everything else. Even the game boy is getting a drag and drop card.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    Older tech, requires older crap.

    I was on that site looking for stuff on the pokewalker thing, found my way to a disassembly of one.
