    Well it hasn’t shipped yet. 600k preorders though so not horrid. However no promotion at all lately seems odd. I like the fpga idea a lot. Wish they went all fpga with it.

    truer words were never spoken.

    Right??? I mean Rondo of Blood is SUCH a shitty game because of its ridiculously incredible soundtrack.

    This.

    Iíve already been able to play neo/PCE/sega cds in my modded xbox for over a decade.

    The ambiguity of the inner workings of the product should be a huge red flag for most of us here. Did they write their own emulators? Likely no, is everything built from the ground up in an FPGA? No.

    But I guess you can play all of your original games on it to save your precious retro consoles from actually being used.

    Sounds like you didn't have a CD system back in the day. These days I tend to agree with you, to the extent that I now prefer the music produced on-board. However, back in the 90's CD soundtracks in games were glorious.
