As far as music distribution methods go, "chiptune" musician Alex Mauer's latest approach may not be the most practical, but it's certainly guaranteed to warm the hearts of his target audience (and no doubt many an Engadget reader as well). Staying true to the 8-bit nature of the tunes, Mauer's gone all out and actually stuffed his new "Vegavox" album onto an NES cartridge, which can be yours for €22 (or just under $30). Just pair it with an nPod
or other portable NES
and you can pretend for a minute that cartridges actually became as widely popular as you once imagined they would be -- or was that just us?
