Steven Pendleton Posted March 31, 2021 Share Posted March 31, 2021 (edited) Anthony said there was some big news, so here I am. It seems there IS big news indeed... let's clear up some stuff first, though. 2 hours ago, ohfivepro said: I mentioned on Twitter a week or so ago when this was 1st announced that these are $600 for a box, a plastic cartridge, a manual, a piece of paper & a rom dump. Truly ludicrous & if you look at the small print it clearly mentions that the cart is not guaranteed to work on all official AES hardware QUOTE "This software is not compatible with all genuine devices. It may not work depending on factors such as the condition of the main body and the manufacturing time" Reply from someone with more tech knowledge than me: It means they're using 3.3V chips that are not rated for use on a 5V console. The same situation and happened with this official SNES Street Fighter II repro cart... And they warned it could catch fire Please do not support this garbage - use MAME or buy a used MVS cart 2 hours ago, ohfivepro said: I'm not sure if this release is actually manufactured by JoshProd of if it's manufactured by Columbus Circle. If it's Columbus Circle, this is their typical way of doing things: they are basically a company that makes garbage. They are basically Japanese Hyperkin and should be avoided if possible. I have a few of their MD releases and the cart PCBs are just squares. Not beveled like they should be, just plain square. Sadness. If it's JoshProd... then yeah, I'd say avoid it. 1 hour ago, NeoPancho said: It's not related to SNK but i think it's good news, there can't be that many AES cartridges of those games out there of those games... then again, as much as i would like to get Breakers Revenge i can't see myself paying 400€ for it. I'm sure it's quite complex and expensive compared to other systems replicating cartridges but i think the price is a bit too hight... Yeah, so I saw a real Japanese AES Andro Dunos the other day, right? Paying 400 Euros is a hell of a lot cheaper than the 30000+ yen price of that original Andro Dunos. I'm not sure how much a US AES copy is, but here are a few copies on Surugaya's website. https://www.suruga-ya.jp/search?category=&search_word=アンドロデュノス&searchbox=1&is_marketplace=0 One of these (the cheapest one) is the older JoshProd release from last year, but the rest are originals from the 90s. I believe Andro Dunos is one of the only AES games that got released in both the USA and Japan where the Japanese version is far more expensive and rare than the US version. I am very tempted to pick up this new Japanese AES Andro Dunos from JoshProd for this reason. Maybe I'll open it and poke it with a multimeter to see if the cart is good if I do get one. Not sure yet, though, as I'd rather have Sonic Wings 2 and that's basically the same price for a real copy.
