    Default This has to be a joke!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=3665

    First off... this is not even close to being rare. Number 2, the say they can't mention the name or specifically what it does, then proceed to tell you what it does that's against eBays rules. F'n dumb ass seller! I'm tempted to turn this auction in, just because.

    It should be painful being that stupid.

    from the auction:
    due to eBay rules I can not list the name or specifically what it does, but using this cartridge will allow you to play non-USA released Sega Saturn games x_x

    Someone picked up the BIN option on this for $19.95. Probably thinking something like, "I'd like this, but the seller's a moron. I'd better grab it before it gets yanked."

    Wait a sec...didn't you just say EXACTLY what this thing does after telling us you can't say it? I wasn't aware Saturn 4 in 1 carts were against eBay's rules.

    Indeed it does:

    "Do not list devices that enable the play of backup or import versions video games (including mod chips, game enhancers, and boot discs) on eBay."

    I thought that was just a memory cart? Some games require a 4meg, some a 1meg...

    Its a memory card and a mod-chip built in one. I've never seen this particular one before thought the "Satellite Key" is pretty much the same thing and fairly common.

    I don't understand why EBay has such a hissy fit over listing devices so you can play import games. I have friends who play nothing BUT imports and it's a heck of a lot cheaper to get a $20 mod chip as opposed to $200 for a Japanese console.

    Its not necessarily the fact that those devices play import games, its that they allow people to play illegal copies as well.

    Otherwise they probably wouldn't allow people to sell import games either.

    As far as I know, there is no cart that lets you do that with the Saturn. You need a mod chip to play bootlegs.
