Ah,you already thought about production more than 90% of all kickstarters:)
Well I'm terrified of disappointing anyone, so I wouldn't want to get their hopes up without knowing exactly what's what.
The price is no great secret - the bill of materials and board for Rev 0 are on the site if anybody wanted to modify the PCB for some reason. You could upload them into pcbway or another site and get their price quote. The most expensive parts are the PIC, the Flash and SD card socket. I haven't looked into the price of other PICs, Flashes or sockets, but I guess a microsd slot would be cheaper simply because of it being smaller, and there might be a different kind of PIC that's cheaper that has the same ability. I think the Flash is cheapest for the size (since I moved it to another component for price reasons just before ordering), but it's possible that a larger
Flash would be cheaper by virtue of being more common! 8 megabytes is a bit tiny for a Flash chip, whereas you can imagine 256/512 megabytes being included in all kinds of things like GPSes even if they don't need it just because they're cheap.
The Chinese 'all games on one cart' carts are cheaper since they don't need to be self-programmable and they almost certainly don't include the correct voltage translators:http://web.archive.org/web/201905251159 ... -consoles/
