The only drawback is that you need a stack of CDs, as opposed to having everything on an SD card, which is much more convenient.


There's a site that sells repros for systems like the Saturn and their pretty cheap. The SD card mod is too hard to find and expensive.

I'm hoping the SD mod becomes more available. Then I can dive into the Saturn library. I've never played it. :(

Just buy an Action Replay 3-to-1 cart flashed with Pseudo Saturn and you're good to go.

^ I’m surprised they can get away with that. Doesn’t seem legal.

Anyway, I have originals of all the Saturn games I want. I would only use Pseudo Saturn for fan translations, unreleased protos, & stuff like that.

The nice thing about an sd solution, though, is that I will still be able to play my collection when the Saturn motor/laser fails.

Repros are sold on Ebay too. Some even on Amazon. Plus, mods barely bother with dead boards. Sometimes it's justified with retro games as they often are very expensive online especially with the insane prices of many Saturn games.

I don't think there's a perfect Saturn emulator. They all have some problems. Getting an Action Replay cart flashed with Pseudo Saturn or installing the universal modchip is the best solution. You'll be able to play imports or backups of all of those insanely priced Saturn games with no problems.

SSF is a very good emulator with compatibility for most games. I don't know much about the Psuedo mod but it sounds like it could be a possibility for TC.

If you buy an Action Replay 3-to-1 cart that has been flashed with Psuedo Saturn (you can flash it yourself if you know how) then you need literally nothing else. It'll play 95% of the Saturn's library with no problems including backups without having to install the universal modchip or perform the dangerous disc swap trick.

Question: the answer is probably 'No' but do you know if when using this Psuedo Saturn it will allow for Sega CD backups to be played on the Saturn?
