    The Dallas/Ft.Worth area has seen massive growth in the last 10 years. I bought my house in what was once a small town of 18,000. It has now grown to nearly 50,000 in 15 years, and the prices of houses have doubled. Frisco, North of Plano/Dallas, was isolated pockets of houses and farmland. Now, it's one of the fastest growing areas in the whole metroplex and houses are expensive there. Jerry Jones even moved the Cowboys headquarters to the area, along with a lot of major corporations. Anyone that had bought land there 15 years ago, is now raking in the dough, because their property values have increased over 100%.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    You're living in a fantasy land. Its quite well known that in most of the Western world property values have been climbing much faster than incomes. But because you seem to live in the one part of the world where your income has increased at the same rate as house values, you think Boomers didn't have it easy.
    My hometown hasn't seen any major change to economic opportunities, the biggest change has been Boomers buying up all the property in the hope that they can use it to pay for retirement. And I've seen the same pattern in a lot of towns now.

    ^^ EXACTLY! Generalizations are bad. It's how all forms of intolerance grows. Once you begin generalizing based on things out of a person's control (age, race, etc) then YOU become the bad guy.

    BTW I am looking forward to trying the Satiator.

    Thanks all for the heads-up on this Satiator. I'm going to try to find myself one of these. Haven't had a Saturn in years but seems like a good reason to own one now.

    Latest Patreon Update:

    Planning a big batch to be manufactured and ready by end of November. Should suffice for all Patreon supporters to buy. General release would follow that.

    Added exFAT support.

    Added Action Replay support.

    I was defo going to get one of these, and am still really interested, but... I found myself in the situation where my brother asked me to sort him out with a Saturn. Knowing he is a space saver type I opted to give him mine with its Rhea and region free mod. So now I've got a Japanese Saturn's innards in a PAL shell plus a replacement 240v PSU on the way from eBay, and I've plumped for a MODE.

    I'm looking forward to it, but I'll miss the Rhea, I think I was among the first to have one fitted (it was my console in the VGP review) and I like the way it works so well, albeit with a bit of faff. With the MODE on the way, and with my other Saturn and its modchip I just don't need the Satiator anymore. But still, I'd love to try one; I had planned on putting it in my disc drive unit.

    I have my Satiator ordered and it's on it's way. I should get it on Tuesday.

    The orders were opened up to everyone who was pre-approved on the Patreon, so once these 950-1000 are sorted there should be about 200 left over from the first big run for people who want to order one.

    After those are out, he'll probably to to gauge interest to see how many he should keep on hand for orders.


    Update: Got it. Works pretty well once I parsed out exactly the file lay out I needed.

    Direct connection to the TV works great.

    Connecting through the retrotink and elgato...way more finicky...but I did ultimately get it to work.

    good to know, but he need to cut the price at least in half to start to being reasonable.

    The irony is part of the price is due to the packaging too, and that box is ugly...

    $260 is pretty reasonable since there's no disassembly of the Saturn required. It'll be interesting to see how well it supports everything long term though. This is the kind of product where I'll probably wait until several years later to pick one up to make sure any issues are fully ironed out, since no one has ever done this before.

    The box is not the reason. The price is due to his choosing to have it assembled fully by professionals in California. As a result to what are surely higher overheard, they also require a bigger down payment. That's why he's had to seek a higher price to pay down that down. If he lowered the price in the future, I can't see it getting near 200, it's just what it is.

    Yeah of course it's only a little part.
    I remember Abrasive saying that packaging wasn't cheap, when you have an already ridicolous price, you can certainly cut on the useless things like packaging.
    What I find funny is that the box make it feels more like a cheap chinese bootleg rather than a quality product.

    In the end at that price it's a niche solution to an already niche market.
    Hope there will be other similar and cheaper solutions in a near future.

    MODE is cheaper, though I would suggest one of the Laser Bear brackets and SD card extenders, so you don't have to keep reopening the system or whatever. That makes the prices pretty on par. Fenrir is obviously WAY cheaper, but I don't know a ton about the compatibility. Abrasive has updated his firmware dozens of times already, and the MODE is being supported pretty well.
