    My nigga. Yeah I've seen them on amazon and the sort for around $100 so I might pull the trigger on one of those soon. I know they're gonna make the NES classic again but we all know that shit is gonna sell out super fast again. I'll look around this weekend and if I don't see a SNES, I'll just pay the extra $20 and get it online. I've also been contemplating just getting an actual SNES on ebay or wherever, but the nostalgia for old school games is still incredibly high. Might wait a bit for it to die down, as fads always do.
    If I was going the cartridge route I'd have to seriously look at the Analogue Super-Nt. You get a hardware SNES and Super Famicom with HDMI support and no worries about a yellowed console chipping apart.

    They also made a hardware NES/Famicom with HDMI a few years ago, but that was $500 and a lot of the best Japanese games of the era came on floppies for the Famicom Disk System; eg Japanese Super Mario 2, Doki Doki Panic (Japanese game that was reskinned into American Super Mario 2), Zelda (better sound than US Zelda), Metroid (better sound than US Metroid), etc.

    I wouldn't buy an NES Classic unless there is a new revision with longer controller cables. The cables are a little short in the SNES Classic but they're really short in the NES Classic.

    If you buy an SNES Classic check the youtube channel ETA Prime for how to add more SNES and Super Famicom roms and how to dual boot the NES Classic games on it. The only downside of doing this is one of the cool menu features that demos games while inactive only works on the original 23 or so games and sometimes when powering down you'll have to turn the system power back to on then off to shut down. These are the two mods I did to my SNES Classic, and playing some of these missed games like Turtles in Time, Final Fantasy IV, and some Japanese Super Famicom games on the official Nintendo emulator is great.





    I haven't bothered with trying to put Famicom Disk System games on though since I'm doubtful the official Nintendo emulators that come with these systems would play them.

    Fuck yeah this sounds like the way to go. I don't wanna have to rebuy all those cartridges I used to have at inflated prices. I'll have to remember to mod my shit when I get it. But for now, I think I might get the 3ds first so I can have some shit to play during slow times at work. Phones just die too quickly playing games on there and I know nintendo handhelds are pretty good with battery life

    For SNES and NES games the SNES Classic is far better, at least comparing the SNES Classic to the Pi 3 with an XBox 360 controller. Maybe one of those iBuffalo wired pads would bring the input latency on par with the SNES Classic's, but SNES Classic with those wired SNES controllers is excellent for NES and SNES games. The wireless 360 pad just kicks the shit out of the PS3 DualShock3 though, wired or wireless on the DS3.

    I dont think I seen any lag on a pi w 360 controllers. But then again I am no nintendo expert

    But for the fact you can emulate countless more consoles IMO the pi is way better choice. Also pretty sure you can conect nintendo type controllers to the pi

    Im pi biased thou. I just setup 2 pis w/8TB drives each as NAS and mirroring each other

    An 8TB NAS that costs less than $10 a year on power

    There is definite lag with a 360 controller. In Level 1-2 of Super Mario Bros you know the part where you go down the pipe into the area with coins right after the 1-up mushroom? If I run full speed on my Pi + 360 controller setup and let go right before he hits the pipe he still goes into it. On the SNES Classic Mario won't go into that pipe if you're not still holding right when he gets to it, which is exactly how I remember it behaving on the real NES. That's a 100% reproducible spot showing either the default NES emulator is worse than the official NES Classic emulator or the controller has more lag. Super Mario Bros is still very playable on the Pi with a 360 controller as long as you set it up to use the left thumbstick instead of the horrible D-pad, but if you get used to playing it on the NES/SNES Classic and go back you realize how much looser the control is on the Pi + 360 controller setup.

    This is the pipe I mean:

    I have repurposed my Pi from being mostly an NES/SNES emulator to being mostly a PS1 emulator. Most of the PS1 games I'm interested in don't require the kind of pinpoint accuracy SNES/NES games often do, so RetroPie with a 360 controller is excellent there. Though it does require a hell of a lot of tweaking since some PS1 games require the OG PS1 digital gamepad while others support the DualShock. And then some games supporting the DualShock still use the D-pad as the main control, which sucks on a 360 controller until you go into the config and force the left thumbstick to emulate the D-pad.

    Ended up getting the Switch over the weekend. I do value the portable aspect and I don't play so many games that I need more than what they're going to offer.
    Got Zelda, Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart.

    I've never played a Zelda game in my life despite having an NES, Super, 64, and Wii. So wasn't sure if I'd even like it but it's excellent.
    Mario Odyssey is as well.
