The SNES and Sega Mega Drive USB port

Retrode Cartridge Adapter

Some time ago, there was talk in the old school gaming industries of a USB cartridge that could serve as plug-in tool for the Sega Mega Drive and the SNES. The rumor mill actually bore fruit this time around, and the Retrode2 came up for pre-order (a September 2011 release is expected) in mid June.

The device is touted as: “offering the ability to directly access any plugged in cartridge as a ROM sat upon a disk drive on your computer. The Retrode2 offers the perfect legal solution to the emulator fanatics. Those more interested in the obscure side of gaming will find the Retrode2 to be the perfect device for dumping and archiving unreleased game code from prototype retro games”.

Moreover, it is slated to come with two SNES controller ports on its sides, effectively allowing the use of authentic SNES pads during game play for authentic emulation.

More information and everything you need to know about obtaining one of these devices can be found here.
