GDEmu cloned, now $65
« on: September 25, 2018, 09:21:19 PM »
Lots of drama with the original creator and the clone keeps dropping. It was $100 3 months ago, then $80, now $65. I wonder if it'll get to $50 or below.

For those who don't know, here's the official site:

It lets you load Dreamcast games, including the full uncompressed GDI images, from an SD card.

The guy charges $115 for them and the availability has been garbage for 5 years and scalpers have been selling them huge markups.

Here's some Reddit threads to read up on:

i bought a clone, its awesome. rather than convert a dreamcast i already own i bought a specific console just for the gdemu. its seems to be random with noise level when it comes to the dreamcast, this new system had the loudest fan ever! i bought the noctua fan and mod kit and now this dreamcast completely silent. to be honest with how loud the discs drives and fans are playing dreamcast completely silent feels weird now! im so used to having this thing make noise like its ALIVE!1111 also while the gdemu is incredible i will probably buy a few more games on disc just to complete my collection.

theres a new clone version 5.20 https://youtu.be/pv4lJIt4q3g

if you already own a 5.15 there isnt much different, just fixes a few games with issues but the 5.20 is advertised as being updatable. i dont think its an easy update from sd card but something more complicated. i love the gdemu clone but im not sure i will buy a new clone just for a few fixes.
