Anyone have an SNES classic?  Are they worth having instead of just PC emulation?

 

It seems way better than a used SNES because I don't have to spend a fortune on games to go with it (or carry them all when I move). 

 

I wanted to get one earlier, but waited out the crazy shitstorm when they released.  After reading up on it again I just now learned that they decided to never make any more (fucking total dick move).  So now I have to buy one off fucking ebay?

 

I'm not really comfortable with risking money to ebay shenanigans for games I technically already can play, so I'm turning to you guys for your opionion.  SNES classic, worth it or not?

 

Thanks In Advance,

Leo

I think it's worth it. You can mod it too to add more games.

Just get a rapsberry pi4. You can run games with less input lag than the original consoles, and it's powerful enough to handle up to dreamcast, and you can put a 128gb flash card in there and have every single game on every 16 bit system and handheld.

I still use a Pi3, is upgrading to 4 worth it at all? I still feel some lag in a few games, but it's mostly not a detriment.

I'd prefer getting an Everdrive so you can still play on your regular Super NES/Famicom and get the (mostly) authentic experience.

Use 800 gigabytes of samples, I give approximately 0 gigafucks.

It's because pooping is the shared human experience. It's a universal language, like Jazz.

I'm the biggest fan of NES / SNES Classics, just read through some of the old thread linked.

I'd like to do this soon, but I don't have permanent space for my CRT at the moment. PLUS, those are pretty pricey on their own, especially if you have multiple systems.

You can use a SNES + flashcart on a HDTV, it just requires extra parts/money (i.e. either an HD Retrovision component cable or a SCART cable + upscaler like the OSSC).

Right. That's a bit too rich for me at the moment as well. It also doesn't help that our HD TV is mounted to the wall, making the component jacks in the back impossible to access, otherwise, that's probably how I'd play my PS2 right now. Additionally, it makes the other HDMI port impossible to access :\

I use Hakchi to mod my SNES Classic. Extremely easy. I have it shelved after all the time I took adding games and changing the Mini's interface, creating my own genre icons, testing fan made themes, so on.

Thanks for the info shizz comrades.  It's nice to see that people who have one are satisfied, it can be modded easily to go above and beyond, and that there are other options some of you prefer.

I think that would depend on how much effort Leo wants to go getting it set up. If the library of games on the SNES Classic is fine with him, then why not? You could also probably gut the SNES Classic to put a Raspberry Pi in it so that you can a quality and snazzy case.

I'm completely ok with long setup time and modding, for the record.

My Rasp3 retro pie was pretty easy to set up. So far it's been almost perfect for everything up to and including a very small number of N64 games. I might upgrade to a 4 at some point if certain systems seem promising (I haven't looked into it recently), but then I'd have to get a different case and I really like my li'l snes thingy. I've played a lot of psx games successfully, and at the a recent WCS (er, PNW shizzies) gathering we had fun time going through random MAME titles with varying degrees of lame, decent, and absurd.
