A SNES version of this would be much more tempting for me. At the time the 16bit games were such a huge jump forward that I never went back to the older games. I also found NES games rather hard to beat and play through. Perhaps I’m just a few years too young for this?
There are a few unofficial ones floating around like the Dingoo A320, and this hardware supports dozens of systems.
Maybe the best feature of the emulators is save states, so you can take a checkpoint at any instant. It makes the old NES games a lot less punishing. A few years ago I used it to see the ends of a dozen or so NES games I couldn’t beat the first time around.
My guess: wait 5 years.
*Note that an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.
I don’t understand why they made this decision. It seems rather odd that a vital piece of the system (power) would be missing. Any ideas?
To increase profit, because most people have USB power adapters, and they can sell the exact same package internationally. I could be wrong on this last one.
Most TVs sold today have USB ports. You just plug it into HDMI and USB. No wart needed.
Any idea why they chose Armistice Day?
Probably just coincidence. It’s two weeks before “black friday” in the U.S. - enough time to sell some and get people excited about them.
