Waiting to buy SD2SNES Pro???
« on: March 11, 2019, 04:00 AM »
So, I am looking to get an SD2SNES for my Super NT. however when i ventured to the stoneage gamer website to make a custom order they stated that the new SD2SNES Pro would be coming soon. 
a tweet I saw said that the retail price would be the same.

wondering everyones opinion on whether I should wait?

Why do you recommend waiting 6 months to buy the sd2snes pro?

Never purchase the first generation and/or production run of any tech product.

Also, one of the most wanted functionalities is only partially available to the old SD2SNES thanks to unofficial firmware; Save states.

In 6 months from now, you will have the SD2SNES Pro Rev. W with design fixes and maybe on par with the old SD2SNES.

From what you're saying maybe I'd better buy it in November during black friday.
I sold my rev F to get the Pro, I'll save the money until November. In the meantime I'll see if I get the N8.

Stop spreading misinformation. It is not "useless". A couple of games have been reported as not working. Out of how many games the SD2SNES supports? ::)

Get a grip.

I think much people doesn't know how this projects working,sjeez,ok,you pay a lot of money,but it will always be fixed by ikari or krikzz,what we want more??
Its not that a multi billion dollar company is behind those 2 guys,if you want a sd2snes or everdrive perfekt,then create it yourselve.
Its not that those guys give no support,for the price you pay you can play almost al games,only 5 not,the only thing that you can complain then is the many revisions,do you think big manufactures don't do that???
Bugs is part of the job,and i'm happy that i own an sd2snes,without that its almost impossible to play many games cause the prices of the games these days.
Be happy that the firmware is updatable,krikzz and ikari are true legends in the retro scene,give them some credit guys,everything will be fine in a couple of weeks.

Thank you!  I was happy with my sd2snes not knowing that I could get it fixed if it stops working.  These guys rule for contributing so much help, playfulness, and beginners mind!  Thanks for the positive mind state boost, Krikzz rule!
