8BitMods has just announced a GameCube version of their MemCard Pro – An FPGA-based memory card that can act as multiple virtual memory cards when used with original discs and also automatically assign one VMC per game (including per region!) when used with Swiss! There’s also a WiFi interface and a way to back up your existing memory cards. Please check out the video above for more info.
When the original MemCard Pro was announced a few years ago, I asked to check one out and assumed I’d write a post about it. After spending some time with it, I was so impressed that I did a full-length review! At first mention, stuff like this seems pretty trivial and it’s easy to say “I can just get a stack of 3rd party ones on eBay for a fraction of the price”. While that’s techincally correct, I think any GameCube (or PS1!) enthusiast will realize these are absolutely worth the money for anyone past “casual user”.
