Are there any mappers that it doesn't support? (Which I assume means games it can't play) Because looking at the list I would at the very least assume MBC4 exists.

Really excited for these new EverDrives, and personally a perfect timing as well :) Can't wait.

Can you elaborate on the reset needed in X3? N64 and Genesis have a reset button, gameboys don't have one, so I wonder how fast you have to turn the power off and on for the save to not disappear.

I am going to wait for prices before getting excited. Here's my guess, though:

X3=60€
X5=100€
X7=150€

Are you crazy? If these are right prices, ... what a robbery!  :o

Just a guess based on current X model everdrives.

dont go casually accusing people of robbery without doing your homework first.

Of course this was just an assumption of his, but if you think his prediction is unreasonable then do the following:

- get current everdrive gb pricing, as well as other everdrives x3/x5/x7 prices
- get fpga pricing, krikzz mentioned which ones wiñl be used
- get parts costs and manufacturing costs
- add a profit margin for krikzz

After all of this, you will probablt have a better idea.

My guesstimate, based on the fpga and other everdrives is:
x3=50
x5=80
x7=120

Lets wait for krikzz and see what the actual prices will be in september, I'm just guessing for fun here.
