Well 2 days ago I decided to use the old consoles I have (SNES and N64 only) and hook em up to a spare TV, the SNES works 100% but the N64 doesnt even want to turn on, I plug in everything I clean out the game and when I turn it on, the red light doesnt light up and it just does nothing, is it because the N64 is too old or to I have to clean it inside? And btw what is the cheapest and best SNES flashcart?

For the N64 you should have a look at the power adapter contacts... otherwise unplug the power adaptor for the N64 leave it for like 1-2 days then try again.

For the Best Snes Flashcart, have a look at the super everdrive, prices depend of if you want a cool casing, DSP-1 (special chip alowing to play pilotwings/mario kart mainly).

There are no "Best Snes flashcarts" every flashcart have their pro and cons, (especially since every of those flashcarts can only play regular games + sometimes DSP-1 games, if you wanted one that plays every fucking games (Super FX, SA-1 et so on), come back in several years).

EDIT: For the Snes flashcart (and other ones from krikzz): Everdrive
For the Snes PowerPak: Snes Powerpak

How do you open it? The screws are weird.

Is there another way to do it without buying a screwdriver?

Not that I know of, maybe using some tweezers and a lot of effort.

Buying a screwdriver will definitely pay off though, since a lot of tech/game consoles can only be opened that way.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
