Yeah I think no doubt a flashed cart. He keeps skirting a direct answer, maybe to make it seem more official. In theory a CD and 4MB cart is no different than had you played some of the Capcom fighters back 98.
At the very least, I'm guessing the cartridge will have a custom case and not just be a flashed stock Action Replay 4-in-1 or some equivalent model. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the firmware isn't Pseudo, but rather some proprietary solution based around the same idea (presumably through reverse engineering the options already doing the rounds). On the other hand, if this does turn out to be little more than what can already be purchased separately, it will bring greater attention to the fact Saturn's copy protection has finally been bypassed, plus it sets a precedent that may lead to more developers looking at the console - as a retro platform, there's a lot of untapped potential... This is very much a win-win situation, and I congratulate JoshProd for taking a chance on what remains my favourite platform. Here's to plenty more in the future!
The production cost of a cart is somewhat concerning, while I'm sure most would welcome a new Saturn title I think there's a limit to what people would be willing to spend on unlicensed home-brew. Especially considering how much people on a lot of Saturn Facebook groups bitch and moan about having to drop anywhere over £30 on anything.

To be fair, considering how cheap they were for the longest time, how old they are and how even crap titles are getting more expensive, I'd personally call the so called "bitching and moaning" kinda justified. It is what it is~
Wait, a new game for Saturn?, several tries before but sudly, nothing complete at all. I remember Police Officer Smith, Sonic Jump or Sonic Ztreme like good tries. Nothing will make me more happy than a new game for Saturn, (nothing except unreleased games). Edit: searching on the internet, the name of the female character Tia Langray appears in the game Breakers, from 1994 for the Arcade and Neo Geo...
