I compiled a little list of cartridge based console without flash card with approx unique game count (all info from http://www.videogameconsolelibrary.com)
(apologies for the crappy alignement)

Console:   Magnavox Odyssey            GameCount:   28
Console:   Fairchild Channel F            GameCount:   26
Console:   Atari 2600               GameCount:   418
Console:   Bally  \ Astrocade            GameCount:   49
Console:   Magnavox Odyssey 2         GameCount:   62
Console:   Mattel Intellivision            GameCount:   125+
Console:   ColecoVision               GameCount:   144
Console:   Emerson Arcadia 2001         GameCount:   45
Console:   Vectrex                  GameCount:   28
Console:   Atari 5200               GameCount:   69
Console:   Casio PV-1000               GameCount:   15
Console:   Sega SG-1000               GameCount:   47
Console:   Atari 7800                GameCount:   59
Console:   Atari XEGS                GameCount:   32
Console:   Commodore 64 C64GS         GameCount:   28
Console:   SNK Neo Geo AES            GameCount:   117
Console:   Amstrad GX4000            GameCount:   27
Console:   Atari Jaguar               GameCount:   55
Console:   Funtech Super A'Can         GameCount:   12


It's slim picking for a new Everdrive, if any!!! Any other Everdrive is for a console with at least 300+ games.
I suspect that portables are the most lilkely next target (GB, GBA, DS) as they have the most games and likely the widest audience to sell to.

Not sure where you got your info, but several of those systems have flash carts or multicarts readily available.

- Arcadia - http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/189779-arcadia-2001-multicart-2011-version-any-interest/
- Astrocade - http://www.ballyalley.com/documentation/multicarts/multicart_(GaMBITS)/UltiMulti_Version_1_5_1.pdf
- Atari 2600 - http://harmony.atariage.com/
- Atari 5200 - http://atarimax.com/5200sd/documentation/index.html
- Atari XEGS - http://atarimax.com/flashcart/documentation/
- Channel F - http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/149932-fs-fairchild-system-channel-f-multi-cart-pre-order-now/
- Colecovision - http://atarimax.com/colecosd/documentation/index.html
- Odyssey 2 - http://www.classicgamecreations.com/multi.html
- Vectrex - http://vectrex.biz

Yes that is a good point.  Personally I would like a Saturn one (not even sure how that would ever work though), but I think the NeoGeo or the Jaguar would be the most likely and/or straightforward to develop a new everdrive for.  But who knows?  It is fun to speculate though ;)

Right now, I think the voting is mostly GB/GBC, followed by Jaguar. While I would rather see a Jaguar ED first (JED... heheheh), KRIKzz will work on whatever strikes his fancy next. Maybe he'll surprise us all with a Microvision ED. ;) :D

I have one of those...

An Amstrad gx4000 ED would be fantastic as getting hold of the cartridges are really hard and expensive.

The NES is finished??  I have been waiting for that...where did you hear it?  I still can't order an NES from retrogate, just famicom.

Supposedly, they're the same thing. I haven't really looked into it, as I'm mainly interested in the ED64, and a GBA/GBC Flash Cart, should that second one be made.

I'd definitely buy a GBA Flash Cart. The only reason I feel one needs to be made by Krikzz is the fact that the highest capacity card that you can (rarely) get right now is a 2GB, I'm looking for something to store a full ROM set on, which would require, at a minimum, 16GB capacity.

I've seen them before, such as the EZ-Flash IV. However, most only support up to 2GB SD cards.

I had never heard of supercard before. However, when I looked it up, there was still a  2GB limitation.

There are tons of GBA flash carts still out. The Supercard, the EZFlash, and all the NeoFlash carts. That's actually what the Myth series is - an adapter that allows you to use a GBA flash cart on another console. While you could theoretically use any GBA flash cart, the menus only support the NeoFlash GBA carts (for obvious reasons ;) ).

People aren't looking for a GBA cart, but a GB/GBC cart, which is not the same thing.

so...i have been reading through the posts and out the 3 main consoles left (jaguar, neo geo, gb/gbc) its looking more likely gonna be the jaguar everdrive  ;D
 
krikzz said

"i will never work over NeoGeo"

"i made a prototype for gb/gbc, but total power consumption was twice more than with original cart, so i decide not touch gameboy and switch to nes"

"May be i will make a toy for jag"
