While not the official game development hardware from Nintendo, Acclaim used to use the Bung Doctor V64 to do development with due the the higher prices nintendo charged for the official kits. $20,000 for Nintendo kit versus $300 for the Bung kit.


Datel/Interact developed a device to allow reading and writing of data to both the N64 and PS1 memory cards. This allowed people to share game saves with friends over the internet and also to have backups of your saves in case the memory card was to die.
