I really hope TO won't stop putting out solutions for arcade hardware because while there are already solutions for consoles (burn games to CD, mod the console to accept backups, flashcarts, etc...) there are simply no alternatives for arcade games other than buying the board or using MAME.
So you want Terraonion to continue making arcade hardware solutions...
Remember that the CAVE games are mostly vertical and people willing to rotate their monitors are a niche of a niche.
So unless the FPGA solution integrates a way to rotate the games so that you can play them on a horizontal monitor it's going to target a very small market.
...but only if it's horizontal games? Come on man. You can't turn your back on Vertical orientated games when it comes to Arcade. Arcade games were made up of mainly Vertical games up to about the 90's era when fighting games took the mainstream.
You want arcade hardware.Yet you want to cut out a major set of game and genres...
As you stated earlier:
As rare, limited in quantity and pricy some consoles and games might be, those will never reach the absurd state of arcade hardware.
Cave games are at an absurd state! It's a perfect example of an arcade system that is well out of reach for a lot of people.
As for the 360 ports, they're mainly trash. The system is trash too. You think your 360 is going to last you 10+ years? Compare that to an FPGA system/Multi...which do you think is going to continue to work 10 years from now?
Look, this thread is for suggestions to TO about what people are interested in for them to develop. I didn't know it was a "poop on other people's wants" thread. I for one could care less about a Sega CD solution personally, but you don't see me coming in here and coming up with some lame reasons to not develop it.
