    If you don't even have enough for 3DS games, you don't have enough for a SNES or NES flash cart.

    Well, a NES Powerpak is $130 iirc and a SNES Pwerpak is $10 more. So you'll have to shovel it out if you want one.

    I bought a SNES flashcart, Super Everdrive, cost about $80. Fantastic little device.

    If you had $100 you could buy one of those and then have $20 for an eShop card. You could buy Pushmo and a VC title or two.

    Cheapest is PC.
    Any PC can emulate SNES/NES...
    I had a crap piece, now 10 year old, PC with like 128mb of ram or something. I could emulate SNES with no lag.
    So, yeah. PC.

    I hear a hacked PSP can emulate SNES/NES, too. They're cheap as hell too. Probably the best handheld solution if true.

    I second the Computer option.
    infiniteneslives sells USB NES and SNES controllers.
    You could buy one off their site and use it with FCEUX and Snes9x.

    As a bonus, they also have NES and SNES controllers that contain a certain amount of internal memory.
    So you can put your emulator and your roms in the controller's internal memory.

    Also, you could make it so the computer runs the emulator as soon as you plug the controller into the USB port.

    i personalty just wait out finding the originals for a dollar or so at yard sales, flea markets,Christian missions and the like.
    if you like getting your hands dirty you can always learn to solder and invest in some eprom chips, a programer, and some crappy games for donor carts making your own pirate/repro carts.

    Go to DealExtreme and purchase a cheap portable game console with TV out. Last time I looked one was $45 with shipping. Stuff your SNES ROM backups and enjoy on the big screen or the road.
