I got mine for $0. I win


I frequently go to this one game shop in my town (the only good one) so the owner knows me well and he just asked me if I wanted it. Needed a power cord but I just switch up with my Dc when I'm not using that. I also got alot of free SMS stuff.

Free stuff rules.

But man, off ebay for $4.50 is a great deal, I wish I had spotted that. But to much talk, time to join the party

Not likely if you've got a 20 pin Saturn.

The question IS, did he really mean a model-1 Saturn, or an MK-80001 one... Which leads me to wonder, my Saturn is a model-2 and says MK-80000A ... what could the 1 be... I know that PAL models go by the MK-8x2xx number (right?).... Oh... The confusion....

I think Model 2 saturns have the 'A' in their model #, whereas Model 1 Saturns don't.

Or at least I'm pretty sure that's what Euro Saturns have.

Umm.... LOL ... sorry. But, uh, when mal said "no modding for you," that was supposed to be bad news. <_<

You see, to actually play backups, one needs a mod chip regardless of what model Saturn one has - but model-1 models (pardon the redundancy here) use a 20-pin cable to the CD drive, rather than a 21-pin one, and 20-pin modboards are virtually impossible to find.

The swap trick is quite a bit of work from what I hear, and you'll be stuck with it unless you pick up a model-2 Saturn.
Sorry to bust your party....
