This message is a reply to If the GBA had one.....why not the SNES......(cool idea).... posted from Andy posted at September 24, 2001 at 06:25:49
The reason why GBA flashcarts are small in the first place, is because the GBA was meant to be portable, so you can take it anywhere you want, that's why the carts were small.

The SNES is not portable, it just lies on your bench or on top of your TV all the time, so it doesn't need anything small. Hence the SWC or any other back up unit.

I don't know what you find more complex:

Plugging the SWC to the comp, and downloading games to it with two or three clicks.


Having one small cart and erasing and uploading a game each time you want to play a diffrent one.

I think the latter is more complex if you ask me, and a flash ROM cart will wear out after 100 thousand times of erasing and uploading... A normal DRAM will hold much longer.
