    i remember getting my PS1 and the first game i got was
    Battle Arena Toshinden, only to feel a tad let down by the long load times that it came with.
    made me wish sony had used cartridges.

    also, the way some friends treated my games, cartridges would last longer.
    and the less moving parts in a cartridge based console made me happy.

    any out there still like the cartridges despite their being outdated?

    NO.

    Overpriced, underspecced. Fine for the time but quite rightfully they died and I'm not sorry at all.

    wasn't there a discussion about this a few months ago...

    i can see them trying out memory cards but discs are still way cheaper to produce.

    carts/cards work better for portables and discs are better for consoles. i really can't see that changing for a long time

    ..


    It was also nice having memory cards. I lost Chrono Trigger in College, and I had to start all over, with a memory card I could back up my saves. I still have my original FF7 save, and now it's on my PS3.
