    A YouTuber named ARCADERU uploaded a video showing a NESMini Softmodded to play 60 games instead of the Default 30 that comes installed in it





    He also sold it on eBay

    EDIT

    Found the Source of this. Looks like the Original Author of this is someone called MadMonkey

    I was fortunate to grab a mini over the cyber monday sale.
    I have been waiting for this to happen! Until more details on how to softmod this with 100% success rate, I will wait.
    Do not want to brick the system during flashing the rom.

    Can you load every single NES game onto a NES MINI? Is there enough space (Megabytes, Gigabytes)

    No one knows at the moment. The op said he loaded 60 new games + the default 30.
    He also said the internal storage ram is around 1024kb?

    That's still not bad 90 games instead of just 30.

    NES games are around 1mb and the game saves should be a bit less. Maybe we can get 500 games on these things, IDK.

    Me, I'll load all the games I'm familiar with (though anything with the Zapper won't work) along with the most recommended games.

    The complete NES romset is 237 MB according to pwsincd, the biggest single game is Action 52 at 2 MB (unfortunately with its custom mapper, so not emulated by the New Nintendo Raspberry Pi), everything else should be a half MB or less

    At this point, if you're using ROMs, might as well just get a Raspberry Pi.

    Is this safe? Will this brick my mini?
    I own a retro pi3, This mini is purely for the chasis and menu theme which a lot of people adore.
    In addition, it's an official product by nintendo.
    Having a way to load more games now just makes the system even more desirable.

    Might have to pick up one now. Probably not reselling it after modding it.
