Wow, neat stuff, great games in the bundle. The nostalgic aesthetic element alone will provide adequate wife convincing material.
Hmm, more like $30. Too bad it doesn't have a light gun of some sort for duck hunt / wild gunman, etc
They would have to make a brand new NES Zapper gun controller for this system. The original only worked with old school tube tv's.
This is true, but people who want a quick, working out-of-the-box experience with this device will get it.
For those of the know, the Raspberry Pi 3 is obviously the better choice, but not everyone wants to sit down and build/setup/configure the thing just to do this.
It is nice that we now have both options.
Waiting for someone to come in to this thread and say this is obsolete and shouldn't be offered.
I had bought Final Fantasy I - VI, Dragon Quest (Dragon Warrior), Secret of Mana, and ChronoTrigger on iOS. I saw they just released Adventures of Mana (Final Fantasy Adventures) too. I had to buy a plug-in controller for my iOS device. I'm not a fan of the onscreen controls.
I'll be interested to see what will power this box and how the games run.
People can rip their own ROMs from their game cartridges, which to my knowledge, is not illegal.Not to mention that rom downloading is illegal...
Last time i checked raspberry pi 3's are not free. $30 bucks for RP3 and at least another $20 for controllers. Puts you around 50 and your recommendation is then to pirate the games to save money $10 bucks?
Nintendo has confirmed the console will not connect to the internet and will not be able to play games beyond the 30 NES classics that come pre-loaded on the device.

Now if they redistributed it, that's a bit in the gray area, and if they sold them for profit, that is definitely illegal.
