    I'm alittle slow off the mark on this - always had an idea of what the Everdrive was but never really looked into it - seeing the Metal sonic over drive made me now want one lol.

    Very impressed from the vids I've seen and the save feature looks perfect.

    I'm in the UK - where is the best/safest place to buy one?


    I'm always alittle worried about buying stuff like this from websites (like the R4 DS carts) so thought I'd ask for advice.

    I did see one for £109.99 but acidently shut the internet page down. Is that price about right?

    retro towers also sell the pcb for £15 less which is much better value imo.

    OK great thanks for the replies - I take it the 'Everdrive V3' is an earlier concept of the Mega Everdrive?

    The Everidrive MD V3 and Mega Everdrive are 2 different carts. The Mega Everdrive has more features.

    I assume they don't come pre loaded with roms?

    my only worry is that I won't be able to get hold of many roms for the cartridge?

    It's a development tool, intended for developing your own games. ;)

    Using copyrighted roms without owning the games is illegal. If you intend to use it to avoid buying games, it's down to you to find a way of doing that. Yes, you'll probably find it quite easy to get roms as it's such an old system, but you have to remember that just because it's old and not in the shops, doesn't make piracy legal. ;)

    Like what retro said above. Roms aren't hard to get hold of, but downloading roms that you don't own is illegal.
    You can legally transfer your Mega Drive games and turn them into Roms using a Retrode, or you can download public domain Roms or public domain Homebrew legally.
