    Default Such a thing as a mod to play Genny games in the Saturn Memory card slot?

    This flea market guy said he had a Saturn that had the memory card slot modded to play genesis games. some people told me this is impossible. What do the pro's say?
    "Oh my lord it's nutty, yup!"

    This is why you never listen to Fleamarket guys.
    If there was such a mod you'd have heard about it on every gaming board by now.

    I've actually heard about this mod here and there over the years, but I never wanted to risk a saturn in attempting it. My cousin sent me his Saturn with a broken disc drive the other week though, so I went ahead and gave it a shot.

    It seems to work pretty well IMO.

    How much do you charge for this mod?

    I'd say about 25 dollars in parts, but the labor is pretty intensive. Let's say $200 shipped? I can mount the mod in the case very securely, if its going out for shipment:

    don't do it, he is using substandard mounting adhesive, for a couple hundred more, I could use a much better (and stylish) method.


    here is the dispenser of the product that I use:

    you can tell it is superior due to the mahogany and silver highlights.

    You guys are all wrong. This is the best stuff for securing mods of this nature...

    All jokes aside, this would be a really cool mod. Maybe someone can trim up a Genesis 3 board to fit inside. Problem is, how would you get the controllers to work with it? You'd have to mod it to work with the Saturn controllers. Next you'd have to install a system select switch. Another issue is the power supply, how would you get both to work on one power supply? And finally, combining the video output into one output on the back of the console would be a lot of fun. Now that I think about it, all this may just not be feasable.

    I hope this guy didn't say you can play Master System Mycards on the Turbografx? Or that Sega CD games work on the Saturn.

    My mod is a proven success, I've even discovered ways to play Turbo Grafx, SNES, and CPS2 games in the Saturn's cartridge slot with my exhaustive technical research. If everyone hadnt insulted my adhesive methods, I would have shown the super secret mod to make PS3 discs play in the Saturn flawlessly.

    Yup, and if you install 2 32x's to the saturn, and some gameshark code, you can play Dreamcast cd's on that sucker too.

    Don't feel bad, the guy who sold a friend of mine a saturn was also totally convinced that that slot was for Genesis games. I tried to tell him it wasn't, then convinced him to sell her the saturn for $10. I'll call it a win anyway.

    If you daisy chain 2 32x's together does that make it a 64XX?

    If you hook up 2 Dreamcasts to a PS2 fat's drive bay, you can make a Xbox supercomputer that can possibly blow up a small nation. And if you hook 12 Game Genies into the Game Boy slot on a Game Boy Player and then hook it up with an USB adaptor to a Wii, you can magically play Laserdiscs on it somehow.

    EDIT: The Southerner approved Saturn mod adhesive:

    Nothing's better than Scotch tape and Bud Light.

    Meh... I've been playing AES/MVS carts and 360 disk games on my Saturn for years... You guys are lame rookies.

    Might as well go for the unholy trinity 96XXX mod. That's 69 with 27 fingers in your partially tore butthole...

    Pfff, that's nothing. I stuck eight GameCubes together, and made the first fourth dimensional game system, the GameTesseract(TM)!

    I would have taken a picture of it, but just looking at it is enough to cause insanity. It's totally worth it though, even if I do need to wait until 2035 for the first 4D TVs to come out.
