    How about this: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017...pberry-pi-3-and-retropie/?comments=1&unread=1

    This rPI-based system you can build yourself and it costs around $100. It's unofficial (you need ROMs to make it work), but it will play many different systems, PSX on down. Also, mods are possible such as a wireless controller, if that's what you want. It's hard to work with and even setup - you need to know what you're doing. It's even better than NES mini as the save state function is a lot better than NES mini's native one.

    Guess I'll have to watch out for these to buy up a bunch of them and mark up the price

    And Nintendo wonders why unofficial emulators are commonplace :rolleyes:

    Just hope it uses the club ninty snes classic controllers it took me forever to collect enough stars for one and would love another without paying £50
    Sadly TTX Tech screwed up theirs by using left analog instead of dpad.

    i dont get why nintendo is making these mini systems to pander to peoples nostalgia when theyve had something to deliver classic games on their consoles for years; the virtual console

    If this is true then I'm so hyped for a SNES mini. I never grew up with a SNES but it would be so awesome to have a mini version with pre installed games!

    Of course they're launching a SNES Classic, easy money for Nintendo and people want them.

    They need to make more this time so scalpers are a non factor, and leave it open to adding the rest of the rom set.

    More eager for the 64 classic, I hope to see it within the year or 2 and again, be able to install the entire rom set with a hdmi image all for around £60

    i wiil only get one if they do a n64 mini, srs n64 is the worst looking console by far on hd tvs, any game that doesnt have a hi rez mode and most dont , look awful, even older consoles look better than the n64.

    After the popularity of the NES Classic, wasn't this pretty obvious?

    Not exactly stuck. But an XRGB mini Framemeister is $$$. You need more than one retro system before that expense can be justified IMHO. I finally broke down and bought one since my old Trinitron is on the fritz, and I don't know why I waited so long - it's awesome. But I've got a bunch of old consoles and most of my gaming on a TV is 1986-2006 vintage.

    Snes had some really good 2 player games. If it comes, here's hoping they give 2 controllers. If not, then a slew of jrpgs to make up for it.

    Why? So they can starve supply and discontinue it again?

    I'm officially tired of your shit, Nintendo.

    Same people that mentioned Pokemon Stars, yeah, no, I'm pure atheist when it comes to that. An SNES Classic came off as inevitable to me after the success of the NES one, these people reporting it is just a "Duh it's coming" moment.

    I feel the opposite, but I love the pal controllers better with the multi colored ABXY buttons.
