Consolized MiSTer

This came up on my Youtube feed and it looks like a really slick option for MiSTer. If I understand the video correctly, for around $200 you can get a board that has all the common MiSTer addons. I believe that you have to also purchase a DE-10 nano on top of that. I also believe the case will be open source and you will have to get it 3D printed on your own. They hope this will go on sale in October or sooner.

Their board includes:

-Power switch
-2 navigation switches
-4 front USB ports
-2 back USB ports
-Internal USB headers
-SNAC port (for native accessory addons such as controllers)
-3.5mm audio input (for loading cassette tape games)
-1 microSD slot
-expansion port for other addons
-128M RAM (removable for possible future RAM expansion)
-HDMI out
-VGA out
-SCART out
-SPDIF out
-3.5mm audio out
-Sync-on-green switch
-ethernet port

I'm excited about projects like this. Not for everyone, of course, but I'm always up for a bit more industrial design efforts.

That video came up in my feed as well. When I was watching it, I was worried that the price tag was going to be too much. But somehow they were able to make the cost reasonable. Since it replaces the need for all the add ons you would typically need for the DE-10, it ends up being in the same ballpark. Right?

I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this. I've been thinking about getting a MiSTer recently, and I was going to forego getting any kind of case or shell due to cost. But if this thing includes that sweet case and all of the typical add ons, for about the same money that all of the add ons would cost you, then it seems like the best bang for your buck.

I also like that there shouldn't be any issues keeping the kit in stock.

That is my understanding as well but it has been a while since I priced everything out.

It was unclear if they are going to sell the cases. I hope they do but at the very least, you can download the schematics and print it yourself or pay someone else to do it. I very much doubt I will jump on this right away due to life getting in the way but I am watching it with interest. Maybe sometime next year if they are still being sold.
