Well my XGS AVR system arrived today. Can't tell you much because I'm still far to new to all this. What I can say is that it looks like the board is well made, didn't find any poor solder joints. It's a lot smaller than I had thought it would be, compare to the size if the disk in the photo. It does come with a real Atmel programmer which is always a good sign. Looking forward to what it might be able to teach me about working with AVRs and C code.

Specs and stuff here:

If you decide to buy one, do me a favor and put this reference code in your order, might get me something somewhere along the line, though there is no official recommendation program for this product like there is with one of the other products. ORD200812272

Seems so strange that an AVR would be chosen for a game console(even a hobby one). The Harvard Architecture seems so inhibitive, is it not? I mean, I could only see it working in a cartridge style, where the processor is located in the cartridge.

I don't know. I'll look through the disk sometime this weekend and see what kind of demos they gave us.
