    Definitely worth it. Now you don't need to clear space for a Sega CD if the model 2 is the only one you have.

    Wow. Nice! And that's a pretty great price too. I ended up getting rid of my Genesis everdrive last year, so this is going to be perfect.

    So is there any save capability at all for Sega CD and NES?

    Strange that his "features" are basically just what the Pro might do which the MegaSD cannot. Granted I know he was directly asked to compare the two.

    There was also some drama in the tweets. A critical reply to krikzz was made from a new twitter account, writing similarly to the TerraOnion folks and later quoted by them. When pointed out to krikzz, he then said he has an idea who it could be. :P

    Has krizz confirmed if this still uses the real Sega-CD hardware if it's hooked up?

    If so and the ODE part is accurate, I'll definitely buy this one instead of the MegaSD.

    The Euro has gained so much over the Canadian dollar since the last time I purchased from TerraOnion that this is $30 cheaper and the shipping should be cheaper if it comes in traditional Everdrive packaging.

    That looks great, its amazing how far its come since the original Everdrive MD. It'll be interesting to see how well supported the NES part of it is, but I think its best if people see that as a bonus rather than a reason to buy the cart.

    Some time ago he showed it running on a CDX but he also said it's not stable.

    Really, uh, you shouldn't use the CD stuff with a Sega CD connected (or on stuff like the CDX), there's no known way to prevent bus fights (which can cause damage long term). So far we think we have figured out a way to get the Sega CD's memory out of the way (hackers making linear 8MB hacks rejoice), but it doesn't look like there's a way to make its registers go away and I'm also not aware of a way to pass around data from the main CPU to the sub CPU without interfering with games (or otherwise a custom BIOS peeking at the SD card could take care of the issue).

    Change of subject after the first sentence. Had I one ODE to choose, I'd go for the Everdrive. It provides more features I could use than other offerings.

    No updates on the ODE thing, but my impression was that it'd be a separate product, not that the cart could be used as such.

    I would read the reviews and comparison articles first. In some his products, Krikzz is kind of a minimalist. This is almost too good to be true for the price haha. A little skepticism doesn't hurt.
