I repeat my question (I know I am ignorant so that's why I ask):
What ELSE can you do with more work space?
What are the advantages?
What stuff can you do with System RAM that would improve or make better the Megadrive, or what sort of stuff is only possible with system RAM? As I said, I only saw it as space used for storing data, of whatever type, which is what the cartridges are doing.
