People started realizing there was money to be made in emptying an old closest or attic with this stuff.

Honestly I'm too the point I'm just making a good emulating setup. Good machine, emulator, controller, and proper tweaks make it pretty damn hard to tell the difference.

Its a lot less headache unless you find hunting for old stuff still functioning and taking that gamble fun. Some do, I don't.

Beyond that everdrives if you have the console. And a few bitch to emulate ones are worth hunting down if you really care for them. Me there is a few I emulate I probably shouldn't, but I'm too lazy to plug in the N64 for the few games on it I like when I have a really nice emulation set up.

Guess what?
You're not the only one that can fix shit and wants to play an SNES.
You're also not the only one that can fix shit and wants to sell said fixed shit once it's fixed.
Get over yourself and welcome to the real world where demand of something makes the price go up.


That said, I wish the "retro fad" would die so I can come to /vr/ without having to listen to whiny bitches like you who want everything for cheap.

I honestly just gave up trying to find a not expensive and working SNES and got a Retro Duo. The controllers aren't amazing, but so far I haven't had any issues playing games on the thing, I can't complain.

The sound on the SNES side is terrible. Hard to notice until you pop in the right game (Maui Mallard in my case) and the song plays on just the (wrong) channel and ugh. Terrible.

Videos perfect thou.

Same guy as ^^^ had one before, real SNES controllers are SUPPOSED to work but I find that the ports are super cheap and sometimes controllers only half work.

Pop them into a real SNES and they work fine.
