New Flashcart for the PC Engine

New Flashcart for the PC Engine

Postby Mute » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:26 pm

Super SD System 3 is the final device for pcengine.
Its a device that plugs into the pcengine, coregrafx, coregrafx 2 and super grafx expansion port emulating not only the whole super cdrom 2 drive but also the system cards and hucards while offering high quality RGB output.

You can buy one now.. A little pricey for my taste...but does look amazing
This is made for The Pc Engine...Not really for the TG-16...but workable

I saw this on Twitter earlier. Too bad it is so expensive! Awesome nonetheless...

Damn tempting. If I didn't mind bottoming out my bank account, I'd get one right now. What will seal the deal is if the casing is TG-16 compatible. Remember that the back end of the TG-16 is not as wide as the front, only appearing to be, due to the snap-on port cover.

I have a stock PCE Core Grafx 2, with a RGB AMP Scart, yet for the price of this, it isn't bad considering it supports all CD-ROM hardware + System cards and RGB out the box, as look at the prices of real CD-ROM add-on hardware and having to do hard RGB mods, if desired.

If you consider the prices of each piece..The price of this is not as bad. What caught my eye was the fact that it could do cd games..

I hope eventually there are items like this for other CD based consoles like Neo Geo CD, Saturn (Yes, I know there is RHEA/Pheobe, but those are hard to find and expensive), and Sega CD.

Exactly my point, plus the older cd hardware are prone to mechanical failure too. The CD iso support and RGB out the box is the selling point imo.

Might have to sell off my RGB amp scart and Turbo Everdrive and get this, yet will wait it out for bug fixes and what not first.

Its kind of expensive, if you dont have a PCE at all. you still have to buy that. but if you already have one, then its awesome. Not having to worry about CD's is always great. Im with XC-3730C. I hope they tackle the other CD based systems.

Here is my opinion on why In think it's worth it, which was explained in the video.

£50 for a console (give or take) + £20-£25 for a RGB mod internal (if you cannot solder) or £45 for RGB amp scart + up £70 for cd system cards (some have fetched this on Ebay).

Plus super CD-ROM addons are like £200 and the rest. All that is in the region of £390.

Plus, burning discs (who does that these days, I haven't in 7 years now, since switching to hdd storage and ode's and the pce cd drives are prone to failure and recapping = more costs.

It all depends on the person..if they want authenticity or they want to just play the games..Some ppl still do burn games to disks, just for backup purposes,encase a hdd fails, but to have this, is a lot cheaper for anyone that does not want to deal with the recapping and refixes and replacement of parts.. But even modding an original system can be good, by replacing the caps and screens and whatnot, you can make the original better for longer existence...
Yes it is very nice to have original parts, but even if you have original parts..this is a way to keep those original parts original...

I agree, as it does vary person to person, just that my point is, we are dealing with 30+ year systems and yeah, recaps will prolong them but this is a good investment without having to spend additional money on old, now expensive hardware, so the price out weighs that for me.
