oh man. beautiful

It is rather special. I got it was 28 shmups (Radiant Silvergun, Hyperduel, Battle Garegga, Batsugan, etc) about 16 years ago  but I rarely used it as it wasn't modded. I took the plunge back in 2019 I think and @Jeifitted it with the works, including a UK power supply.

Thanks. I’ve been really enjoying all the arcade stuff lately so I may sell a few things off to better focus on it

So import charges of 55.25, just paid them to UPS, so in total about £280 this satiator is costing but in for a penny in for a pound

So it that the Saturn equivalent of your dreamcast?

My friend has an SD in his saturn and swears by it but I love my physical games too much.

Basically yeah. A lot of money but you get what you pay for!

It's certainly something I've been considering more and more. I've probably got most of the key Saturn stuff I want, so I don't mind spending cash on that system. But for the Mega-CD or PC Engine I've got nothing, so even fundamentals would cost a fair few hundred to secure.

I'll let you know what I think of it, it's coming Monday according to UPS

Cool. I don't think I'd bother with one for the Saturn, but a Mega-CD option would be nice.

I meant sell off games from other systems so I can get my Saturn stuff!
I really regret selling off Cotton and Guardian Force but as they're now heading to Switch I'm less fussed about owning them again.

Satiator is incredible. For Mega CD I use a Mega Everdrive Pro, it's also incredible.

If I get a Satiator I would want to sell all my Saturn games, or I would never buy any new ones and I couldn't do that to my console.

Oh I don't intend to. I'd never be able to buy back the games I'd lost and if I did Mel would probably divorce me.

I never had a collection beyond Ultimate MK3 and Fighter's Megamix, so I definitely could do it to my console.
