thoughts?

I'm a huge collector of classic video games and have over 250 NES games. It is definitely tempting, but I want to see the price come down first and see if there are any bugs. Apparently it is using legit hardware and not emulation

It is a lot of money. I always try to get the best video quality and have had systems modded for s-video etc but I'll wait for a price drop. It's really for people who are hardcore purist and want the best quality they can get without imperfect emulation/

Or you can buy a dirt cheap Wal-Mart special laptop (even a POS netbook w/HDMI out), download NES emulator, download free ROMs... connect to HDTV.. profit.

Personally I just use my modded wii with hdmi output to play roms. However that or laptop/hdmi at this point is the most logical way to go. Not all games emulate perfect, some have sound issues..but on a whole I think you would need to have cash to burn until it is more reasonably priced

I've never personally had problems with any of the games I've played via emulator, but I guess with the huge library of NES & SNES games out there, the likelyhood of one or 2 having a glitch here or there is pretty much a given. Still, for ~$150 (not counting the TV of course) vs $500 for a console with hardware from like 1984 (aside from the HDMI port).. hmm... A laptop that can surf the web, and play my NES games pretty much anywhere or a console that is limited to sitting under my TV and costs over 3x as much... Choices.. lol.

Heck, even easier.. Buy an OUYA, install custom firmware, install Emulator.. boom: Now you've got a nice console that can play Android games, outputs via HDMI, and only costs like $100. It even comes with a controller.

or you can just download and emulator and every single game in existence for a total of the amount of kilowatt hours it would cost you to do that downloading.

would love to own an old nes system but id rather just buy a refurbished one on ebay or something. Or even better yet those ones that they have that can play multiple old systems like nes/snes

I've seriously considered those everdrive flash carts. Any issues with them? Also, any issue with your virtual boy and graphical glitches due to the ribbon inside coming lose?

If you're looking for a good CRT I HIGHLY recommend the Sony Trinitron line. They're considered the best for old school gaming. I've got a 32" with 3 red/white/yellow inputs, 1 component and 1 svideo

Here's a pic of my old school game room. Also have on my HD tv wii, wii u, dreamcast, OG Xbox, PS3 and PS4

only way i would even consider spending 500 dollars on this would be if the system storage had every nes game made on it. no game cartridges needed.
