    UPDATE: With new information this thread has been updated. The original post is in this spoiler:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    So to summarize: There is a fake NES Classic with composite video (yellow, red, white plugs) and Sega controller ports. But that's not important right now.


    What is important: There is what looks to be a near-perfect replica of the NES Classic clone, which has been dubbed the "NES Crassic" (whether because it's crap or just to mock the stereotypical Asian accent remains to be seen). It has HDMI out and Wii accessory connectors, just like the real thing. Discussion starts page 2.

    Oh yeah, I saw an ad for those on Facebook, check out the site, they come with "500" games, most of which are bootleg garbage :lol: You can see how bad the picture quality is in those screenshots.

    Pro: Lots of games built in.

    Con: Some of them seem to be duplicates.

    Looks pretty decent actually, since it's not HDMI I'm assuming that this is just an ordinary famiclone, not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but those are everywhere so this is not exactly something new, although they usually try to pass them off as something else entirely so the design is either original or just ripped off another console.

    Eh at least it's well made and not garbage like I was expecting. Does need HDMI though.

    My opinion is if it doesn't have hdmi it doesn't count.

    Most clone consoles don't, only one I remember having one was the Retron 5 and even then that's emulation.

    Nintendo has lost the chance to cash in on their NES Classic. I never understood the appeal of the system myself.

    That looks incredibly cheaply made and horrible.

    Good luck getting those to not look like shite on a modern TV. Then spend money on a CRT, then on the games, yeah, that'll save money.

    True. Fine. Rather use Wii U NES emulation.

    Yeah.

    I went there.

    No, Nestopia is better than the Wii U NES emulation by far, why would you even think I'd be stupid enough to use that? 144p NES on HDTV is a lost cause. Don't accuse me of preferring NES VC over Nestopia UE.

    If the emulation quality is the same as the real one we have a winner here. But no HDMI kinda ruins it.

    I could build a better NES clone with a Raspberry Pi Zero, Bluetooth controllers, and a 3D printer.

    No, I was speaking to you about using NES on a modern TV being a lost cause, which lead you to say

    "True. Fine. Rather use Wii U NES emulation.

    Yeah.

    I went there."

    To which I replied that I'm not stupid enough to use Nintendo's crappy VC emulator, but Nestopia instead.
