Sega Saturn would be an awesome Everdrive.  I know Krikzz likes Sega, but does not want to do cd rom replacements.  Someone in China appears to be making one that plugs into the cart slot:

Very very very interesting! I hope to see some news soon.
Even normal modchips are becoming pretty rare for the saturn!

I would love a Jag flash cart but I'm not sure its even possible otherwise somebody would have made one by now.
There are loads of hardcore Atari gamers that would by one in an instant , so lots of money to be made.

I think everyone and their mother have commented on various less successful systems' potential for flash carts in one post or another...  and various impassioned arguments have resulted -- and in typical message board form none of the arguments have persuaded either side... 

But in the end - looking at it strictly as a numbers game (which has its faults since I really don't think Krikzz is doing this for cash) - Wikipedia says Jag sold fewer than 250,000 consoles.  Nintendo Gameboy (color and others) sold 118 million.

Krikzz gets 0.5% of all Jag owners he makes 1,250 sales.  He needs only 0.0000105% of people to make the same sales and (all things being equal) profit on the GB cart.  At some point you really have to question the potential market - even if the small number of people are way more loyal and collector like... 

When I read all the posts about people trying to buy used ever drives and save $10 on shipping or by buying from a questionable source it proves that many flash cart buyers are cheap and unwilling to spend...  Not saying that there isn't a fair amount of people out there who are not price sensitive but it seems most are on budgets or just not paying huge premiums.  $200 buyers are the exception NOT the rule.  I bet Krikzz's internal stats on the SNES cart sales show price sensitivity (one type of cart costs twice the other).

I know I'll be getting death threats via PM from a few people (like I literally expect near death threats since internet anonymity turns adults into children) but maybe history has shown that Krikzz does what he wants when he wants and maybe he is just to nice and polite to say that certain consoles just aren't a priority and may never make sense given the effort to develop AND support?  Supporting a tiny sales base is (in many respects) more painful from a larger base that will have similar issues once major bugs are worked out.

Anyway I've just wanted to put my two cents in on that for awhile.  I'm sure many disagree (hopefully only in a constructive adult way) but there are my thoughts.

There are not enough games, and certainly not enough GOOD games for the Jag to warrant a flashcart. I was surprised he made one for the SMS and GG and there are way more collectors who have those, with way more games for each console.

Ehh... depends on the Neo Geo gamer, honestly.  On the whole, NG gamers are used to spending way more money per game, period.  Waaaaay more money.  However, there's a distinct subsect of NG gamers who are basically jerks (I use polite-ish language... I'd say way worse if I knew my audience) and wouldn't ever touch anything but pure original.  There are MVS gamers who don't want a repro label.  For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, this is a black-text-on-white-background LABEL that looks just like the 1980's VHS cassette label on it.

I know that's not a good thing to say when many people (myself included) cannot throw money at the screen fast enough to get an AES Everdrive, but I feel it's worth the truth.
