did any of this snes model get made?
(found on snes wiki page)
Well, it says 'Early Concept Design' on Wikipedia, so I'd assume no.
The top one looks like it has Genesis control ports & the other one looks like N64 control ports >.>;;
The ports in the top one just look like standard NES ports
Upon a closer inspection, I suppose it does. At a first glance it just made me think of these beauties
Onle one of those is actually a genesis port, apparently the other is some clone.. but still
Genesis just used the same connectors as the C64.
Yeah I know. It also worked on other oldies back then like the Atari 2600, the 9-pin port was pretty common. I just couldn't see that the port did resemble a NES one upon a first glance at the picture, I haven't handled a NES controller in such a long time so the port doesn't exactly stand out to me
It would be very interesting if Nintendo did make those kind of prototypes. But I don't see where the cartridge would go.
For me they'll always be Amiga Joystick and Mouse Ports
maby the idea was to have no cartridge maby a use cds or use downloads?
Serial ports… I think all the computers with GUIs from that era used them for Input devices…
They carry different signals than a serial port, so while they're both DB9 connectors, you can't really compare them.
Which explains why Genesis controllers can't be used with a USB serial adaptor…
Exactly IIRC, there's a way to build a cheap adapter using a parallel port, if your PC still has one.
My PCs all have parallel ports… But they are all too old to run most emulators decently… I know USB adapters exist… I just don't really need one at this point…
