I have an 8x memory card for Dreamcast that looks just like yours except it's called "Massive Memory Card Plus". Found it on Amazon last year for $40 I think.

$100 for 3rd party memory cards?

Are accessories really getting that expensive these days for Dreamcast, in particular 3rd party brands? o.O

The memory cards with 4 meg and higher are the interest!

How do you save when the 200 blocks of the original VMU are used up quickly? One memory card with 4 meg is cheaper than 4 original VMU and I don't have to change too often.

The memory card with 8 Meg cost me just $ 18!

Easy, VMU tool to open an additional 42 blocks. As a matter of fact, I even use VMU tool on my official 4X memory cards to add 42 blocks on all 4 memory banks.

Maybe I'm just outta the loop since I can't even recall the last time I paid for any kind of DC memory card. I've just accumulated so many by now, but they were hardly expensive and fairly abundant and easy to find.

I just could never bring my self to use a memory card with out the screen makes me sick thinking about that so many games use the vmu nice icons and it adds to what they do or are.. visual memory unit after all.. Really a big part of what make the dreamcast what it is to me..
