It does float! And doesn't get soggy in milk! :)

That just gave me an idea. Now this goes into the flash cart territory so anti-flash people, try to hold on. What if a flash cart is made and where the label goes is a little window? Anyone can buy the cart and game makers can sell their game as an uploadable image put on a normal CD-R along with a label-card that you just drop in behind the window. They could sell the game, label-card, manual and even a box if they want to. This way there is no wicked high cart prices (because everyone only needs one cart) and there isn't a need to press a bunch of CDs that only some of the Jaguar scene can play. Game makers can still price games they know will sell at. We get a feeling of buying a full product and all we have to do is put the disc in our PC, hook up the cart and load it!

It's an intriguing idea ...

Sooo now that we have a larger Jaguar fan base in the forums what do you developers think of my idea?
