    Only $60 for nostalgia overload. Go ahead and take my money, please.

    This will be a hot seller at Christmas, I bet, as its a fun, nostalgic gift for 30 somethings.

    I've been pulling together a collection of retro games myself, and I'm setting up a little retro game station on an old CRT TV in my game room with an Atari, NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, Playstation, and Dreamcast.

    I wish it had expandable memory to purchase more games, but that probably would've drive up the cost. I'm going to buy this when it comes out but gives me a fun weekend project to setup my Remix Mini Android Box with emulators/ROMs on it.

    You can download an emulator right now and play all of those games for free.

    I find it somewhat odd that they included the most hated Zelda game there is. But I would totally still play it when this comes out.

    Sometime's people rather pay for a quickie at massage parlor than do it themselves at home.

    For me it's a big deal to do it on the old school controllers. I don't want to try and figure out how to play Super Mario Bros on my dang keyboard.

    I'd love to play Duck Hunt on my LED, though. If they get that going they can have my 60 bucks.

    While true, this is definitely geared towards the less tech savvy crowd plus it looks cool and is pretty well priced IMO.

    For Contra and Super C, will definitely need the turbo on.

    Might have to break out the NES Advantage

    Need to double check Angry Video Game Nerd for "reviews" of some of these games.

    Except this time, you're giving your money to a Japanese man instead of a 6/10 girl :^)

    I'm sure someone will figure out a way to use cartridges, like they did for the Atari flashbacks.


    For some reason, the metal bottom of that thing used to shock my legs.
