The amount of hate on twitter ("game over prof", or about limited availability of Rhea/Phoebe etc) is amazing ... but not surprising.
I wish all the best to Ced as well as I wish all the best to other similar projects too
And I'm curious to see which direction the project will take : open source or closed source but DIY or homemade or mass-produced etc.
I wouldn't put much thought into that, half the people who buy the ODEs don't even have a Saturn in the first place, they keep asking what units to get AFTER they order the ODE. They aren't Saturn fans.
At the moment, the Fenrir is about as hard to get as the Rhea/Phoebe, AFAIK.
The Satiator, if it ever releases, will have some huge advantages... if someone writes the software for it, you can interface with the SD card from the Saturn side. Would be kick ass if someone wrote a backup manager or a cart dumper for it. And then there's the USB port on it, so maybe you'll be able to control the console from a PC as well. But it all needs software written for it first.
