Hello peeps - James/Stylus from RGCD here.
We're working with Psytronik on this one - and we'll be selling the cart (with them handling digital/tape/disk versions). I can understand that people will be interested in the convenience of the cart version for real C64's, but this does have a downside over the tape and disk...
...this is a brand new 64KB cart (the pcb was only recently designed and built!) and it *will* be more expensive than the disk and tape versions. We haven't established a unit cost yet, but I'm guessing the cart will sell between £25-30 including world wide shipping.
At cost price without any mark-up at all for the developers
, we're looking at over £20 already - the cartridge hardware isn't cheap, neither is getting all these extras made up OR royal mail shipping! - and worst of all, about £1.40 per game goes straight to paypal :/
Ideally, I'd want at least that amount (per copy sold) to also go to Smila, Georg and Mikkel for their work (and not forgetting me!).
More news will follow (from Smila probably)
