    There's a world of difference between a Switch mini and this. No not a world, a complete blinking universe.

    Sad that there is no western release, but look at that price. Currently £200 to US equals $261.

    200 pounds that is like 231 euros , seriously are they insane? using an opensource emulator and put 16 games there and charge 230 euros?

    oh and that is the worst looking thing i ever saw, i mean sure they are capcom but did they have to put the controllers with their huge logo? that is just messed up, also since they arent detachable even if your doing single player you must have a huge table to put 2 player controls down every time lol.

    I think I will get a Mame box instead.

    Really Capcom? A controller with a huge Capcom logo on it?

    I feel like Capcom didn't really think this through. On one hand, this seems like a product for the arcade enthusiast and hardcore fans, with the Sanwa parts being used for the device. Which is also reflected in the price.
    But then on the other hand, its exactly these people who are smart enough to know this isn't worth it, and that its just going to be a cheap emulation device on the inside.

    So who's actually going to buy this?

    Not a bad idea. A plug and play console with full sized arcade controls. With some sideloading it could be really fun. I don't know the conversion rate but that's probably around $180 US dollars which is way too much for an emulation box. I would spend $50 on this happily

    EDIT: I went the wrong way in conversion. It actually equates to $261. Hard pass

    Gambia, The
    exactly!

    i was thinking how i would maybe get one if i can expand the library, because those 16 games arent all that appealing. however 200 bucks is a turn off...
