Multi Cartridges, Media Replacers & Multi Region

As I have been maintaining a list of media replacers or multi cartridges, I thought of sharing it here.
The list contains the following:

  • Media replacers; to replace a GD-ROM or tape drive with something that simulates/emulates such drive,
  • Region selector/free; units that allow games to be played from a different region; such as a new BIOS,
  • Cartridges; units that slot into existing machines without the need to modify the host,
  • In development; units that are currently in development and will be available in the near future.

It spans micro computers (C64, MSX, etc), consoles (Playstation, Lynx, GBA, etc) and arcade units (CPS2, ST-V, MVS, etc)

Let me know if something new appeared, I have missed anything or made a mistake: waiwainl (at) gmail.com
