Really nice to have options. Would be great to have more info on install requirements, etc.

I wonder if this will end up being available before the Satiator.

Omg, it would be *killer* if he did it with just the ESP32!

I'm sure an ODE for either the PSX or the Saturn (and similar age disk consoles) is doable with the ESP32.
This $3 module will one day beat all the FPGA solutions! Will this be the first? :)

Well, the final consumer cost would be in the wizardry of poking the ESP32 registers just right, aka the software.
Scraping together the required knowledge from all the available partial sources and spotty documentation, that's the hard part.
But if the programmer does that and is inventive, the ESP modules can be amazing.

Fantastic! Glad to have options, especially with the way the Rhea/Phoebe pre-orders are handled.

And if it's cheaper, sweet!

You're right, don't want to undermine the hard work that goes into the software side and the value that has.

Ceb confirmed it's all emulated on the ESP32!

That's so impressive!
Up there with the ESP32 VGA or ESP32 games console projects, really.

Oh and I want it for my 4 dead-drive Saturns.. One for each please :D

I'm definitely on board with these, if they will be widely available, and won't cost an arm and a leg.

I just want something with support for the redump set and a halfway decent gui that I can order in under 7 months without needing to be available to place my order within 30 seconds of the sale going live.

You can set this app to monitor text on a web page and make an alarm go off when it changes.

Set it for the text "Preorders are currently closed"

The second he opens shop you will know.

Missed the chance to call it "Mundilfari" :D

In all seriousness though, this sounds great so far and it's always nice to have more options!

I managed to order one for myself and 2 for other people over the years (sold them at cost to people that appreciated them). My point is it is bullshit.

Looks like this is finished. A small release of 5 has been made available for purchase. Next batch estimated for the end of January which is targeting a very reasonable Euro 50 (no mention of shipping)

50 pieces, not euros. I assume the price will be the same as the 1st batch, 80 euro.

Ah that makes more sense, I read that as '50 a piece'.

80 euros is still a phenomenal price. I eagerly await this business.

First groundbreaking retro product around the ESP32.

These chips are awesome and should be used a lot more! :)

I already have a Rhea in one of my Saturns. But I'm excited to see how this product turns out.

Especially considering the gdemu jackass took all his firmware down so I guess the only way to update it will be to mail them back to him every time there is an update.

Some of my optical drives on my Saturn are already dying.

Looking forward to just booting up my games via SD :D
