    Default I need answers (SNES/Genesis cartridge slots)

    -Why did Genesis not have an "eject" button?

    -I've heard that "pulling an SNES game out" withOUT using the eject button causes harm to the game. IF TRUE, why doesn't this apply to Genesis games (which obviously require to be taken out manually?)

    -How has your SNES eject button hold up over the years? What happens when the button "no longer functions properly?" I guess this goes back to my question of "does yanking an SNES game out without using the eject button do any harm to the game or system"

    I tend to leave my SNES games in for as long as I can -- I want to avoid as much wear and tear as possible -- or am I just being a bit paranoid? I like to play a game and stick with it (partly to fully enjoy the game, partly to perserve the eject button -- I've seen SNES models where the eject button died out)

    I guess that's all I have on my mind right now. I always meant to ask these questions but never got to it. Any insight is appreciated! Thanks.

    My model 2 SNES has no "eject" button. I smell a conspiracy. :P

    Isnt the Mega Drive/Genesis games easier to pull out than the SNES games?

    Well.. everytime you insert and pull a game out it will take wear, but its minimal. I'd bet it take over 100 years to destroy a SNES game by taking it in and out with normal use. So if your worried about the games getting destroyed by taking them in and out i'd say you worry for nothing.

    I think that it's meant to tell you that you might yank the catridge out at an angle, as opposed to straight out, which is what that eject button does.

    Technically, the eject button does the same thing that you'd do if you pulled the cart straight out.
    RIP bargora, you will be greatly missed.That is how we do things on Giedion Prime.
