    The 'SupaBoy S' embraces the pursuit of the impossible: turning a portable console into a childhood dream. A modern dream. Maintaining a retro yet timeless look, the SupaBoy S gives the SupaBoy the revamp it deserves, with upgrades catering to the most discerning of gamers!

    The hardware is nothing short of amazing with it's 10 hours of battery life, amazing crystal clear 4.3" screen that is fully backlit, and a PAL and NTSC switch to enable flawless region free gameplay! This portable console is a dream come true for anyone who grew up with the Super Nintendo and is a must own this holiday season!

    General Manager of FunstockRetro.co.uk, Andy Pearson quoted:
    "The Super Nintendo will always be one of the best 16 bit consoles to have ever been made. Many of my favourite titles are on the system, and I love the idea of taking my old cartridges and taking them with me wherever I go. The portability and improved design is a must have for anyone who wants to enjoy classic Super Nintendo memories on the go!"

    - Is this an ad?
    - What's the LCD's resolution?
    - Is the LCD TN or IPS?
    - Does it have HDMI out?
    - Does it run Android?
    - Which processor does it have? How much RAM?
    - It's too expensive

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I rather Super Famicom/Super NES (Europe version) over America version. It is so... Purple! LOL!

    EDIT: They should include bluetooth for controllers.

    This, or a N3DS for $99 on black Friday. Hmmmmmmm..... Interesting these companies are still making stuff like this, but I can't really see the point in it all anymore with the plethora of other ways to play these games on your TV now.

    A 3DS is more worth it in my opinion.

    It's a shame the TV out on this is only composite. If it had HDMI output this would be the perfect device to butcher and put inside my modded SNES case which currently houses a RPi and a Retrode.

    It will run the native 30FPS for all games. Beyond that, what do you care?
    Agreed.

    Is that a serious question? If people buy hardware, especially with this pricetag, obviously they want to know the specs. Also it doesn't say anywhere how much fps it will run games at, so it could run key games like crap.

    Though I now emulate and am in love with my Pi's, I still have to admire little products like these. I probably won't buy one my self, but it is cool, especially for cart collectors!

    no buy.

    also, personally, I don't like these copy paste press-release jobs. i mean, you might as well just post the picture and link to the website.

    Does it even play SFX chip games? Eh, what do I care, I have more devices than I can count that can play SNES. (now... if it were N64....)

    Flashcarts exist, you know...
    This is a hardware clone of the SNES and the original SNES never had compatibility with the NES, you dip.

    Oh, I thought this would just be a SNES emulator in a box.

    I just read on another site that this reads cartridges, holy shit. I thought that this thing just runs an emulator.

    It might. It could read the data from the cartridge to be fed to the emulator.
