USB-GDROM - how did I miss this?

Too bad about the price. $205 shipped to the US... I'll keep on burning, thanks! I'd probably do $60-70.

EDIT: Another one for $122 shipped. Not bad.

im without a doubt going to buy one. it might take some time since i just bought the mega everdrive which was a fairly expensive retro gaming purchase, but these dreamcast usb loaders will be a must for someone like me going into the future. dreamcast games are insanely expensive on ebay now, and i am not into playing cd-r back ups for many reasons. skies of arcadia is like 80-100 bucks on ebay now, i got it for 25 bucks in 2011. these games are only going to go up in price, so i gotta buy one of these usb loaders to basically save money!1111 LULZ!111

Older game consoles rarely fail except for the disc laser. You'd basically have an immortal DC with one in it!

yeah man, you would have a dreamcast that would last forever, load games faster (im assuming) and cut system noise in half by not having a spinning/seeking disc. when i buy one ill make a kewl thread.
