Martijn I just don't get this one. People really interested in retro gaming can just set-up a RetroPi or something and have thousands of games to chose from, instead of a limited few pre-selected by Nintendo with no real way to ever change what games are available.

John Olinda I'd normally say the same, except for me there's definite sentimental value in the "real thing" even though this isn't exactly the same device. I think there's also a simplicity factor for people who might not care to set up a Pi or other emulators but still want to play. And who knows, maybe there will be a way to get more games on there?

Nkrs Not everyone has the skill and the want to set up such a thing himself. This is a finished product with professionally designed and made case, made by the original manufacturer, and it's made to be just unboxed and plugged into the TV, no extra setup. RetroPie is an interesting project, but it requires building the machine yourself and messing around with OS images, and it might not even turn out alright. I haven't heard of RetroPie before, but now that I did, it sounds like a cheaper variant that I might try; I could even reuse the Terminator case.

Nkrs With that release date, I know what I'm going to (try to) get for my birthday. I still have one of those ripoff Terminator consoles that came with cartridges that had million copies of four same games, and I really want to play some of the old games, but it doesn't work with the new TVs. This is as close as possible to having the real thing.

John Olinda Yeah, I am really glad it has HDMI. Just plug and play. I wonder if the games have been updated to display in 16:9 though?
