    This thing looks like the ass-end of Cape Canaveral, but I like its functionality.

    To me this is a useless buy. To me emulation and WiiVC is a better option.

    Interesting though.

    I know. They should have dropped the wireless controllers to keep the price under $50. Also they need to find another designer -- this could be the ugliest game related "thing" I've ever seen. [​IMG]

    Oh, I was actually talking about the links to the current flash cart solutions, but that's true too.

    Computer monitors don't have the same display as TVs.

    Yes yes "nostalgia you old fart", however a lot of games for older systems used sub-pixel color hinting to give the appearance of more colors than there were (taking advantage of the fact that colors may appear mixed on a TV when the pixels are right next to each other).

    I read a nice page on it, let me see if I can find it.

    Pretty cool for people that don't have a DS because all those consoles can run on a flashcart.

    Too bad it doesn't have N64.

    i would never buy a wii, its a gimmick of a system that bores me to death with graphics for 13yr olds and games to match. i have a bunch of carts for all 3 systems the retron3 supports. to me this is a great buy and not useless at all. it is 1 system to replace 3.
