Textured Shells?
« on: February 07, 2021, 07:21 PM »
I wonder if anyone has information on this or just thoughts in general. Some early Super Everdrive shells had the textured rough sides which also some came with the lined middle part under the label. When I first saw one of these it was back in the early 2000's and thought the textured ones were special in some way but never really knew why for sure the later ones opted out for a more thinner plastic shell style after the original one as the picture shows below.

Was it just a due to more availability and was easier to mass manufacture them, or when it was first released they wanted to make them as accurate to the SFC cartridge as possible, or something else?

More than likely I'd say it comes down to cost. Those thinner shells look cheap.

Which was sad as the Chinese SD2SNES had a much sleeker design while my Retro Towers one looks like it would break at any moment.
