• Nintendo NES Classic

    From Necromaster@80:774/1 to All on Mon Dec 12 13:06:14 2016
    What you you guys/gals think of the NES Classic? I think it's a nice device but overly exaggerated. I personally play all my NES games on my PC via emulation and it just works :) I also do the same for other various systems like, Amiga, Super NES, Nintendo 64, All Sega consoles and handhelds, ect...

    Hi Necromaster!

    What you you guys/gals think of the NES Classic?

    Anything that does not have SD/USB changeable ROMs, but only relies on built in
    ROM is a complete NOGO for me.

    Couldn't find one in stores on release. Built a RetroPie instead. Very happy with that decision and the lack of NES Classics turned out to be a blessing
    in disguise :-)

    That my thoughts exactly :) when I first heard of it, I thought one would be able to use cartridges on it .

    I think from the teardowns they've done it's actually a Linux machine running Nintendo's own emulator software, which is likely superior to the FOSS stuff since Nintendo has all the specs and other information to make an accurate emulator.

    I still kind of want one for my family since it comes with most of our favorite games and is way more approachable to them than a retropi. But I've not ruled out putting together a retropi for them either.

    The open source emulators are extremely versatile.
    I do not believe that there is a difference between them and the Nintendo one. The amount of testing and development is far bigger for the OSS emulators.

    I was reading some news the other day and someone has put together a package to basically turn your Pi into the NES Classic .. I'll see if I can go back
    in my history and find the article.. it sounds like something I wanna try on the spare

    I found a raspberry pi 3 with retropie loaded and a custom 3d printed nes
    case all for under $50 dollars works wonders for me ;) I even have a usb
    snes controller.

    I did it, you just need to install RetroPi on your Pi and then drop the roms
    in the game directory on the SD card. I use a SNES USB controller with mine, works way better than the nes classic since I can play NES,SNES,GENESIS,ETC.

    I'm certainly not saying the open source emulators are bad. They're really amazing, especially considering they're entirely reverse engineered. But there are some places where they're not quite accurate or there are still little problems, and Nintendo's own emulators don't have as many issues since they didn't have to reverse engineer anything.

    I still kind of want one for my family since it comes with most of our favorite games and is way more approachable to them than a retropi.

    True, but the rest of my family aren't computer geeks. :) So the easier the better for them! I still may build a retropi at some point, though.

    I use a wired USB XBox 360 controller.. so far I haven't had issues with it
    not being supported.. but again, I only play SNES/Sega stuff
