It's not been available on the website for ages. I just saw it when I went instore to check on their internal checking system today. If 'grimley**f is right though it sounds like a system error.

I preordered one of these in September for kids xmas present. Thought it was a good idea. They play it for about 5 minutes at a time. It's pretty crap. One of them things you think will be good but when you get it's not . Wouldn't bother wasting your money and get a few PS4 Xbox games etc. The controller wires are far too short you have to sit very close to the tv.

That's because there's no way of selecting games from the controller. You can get extension leads for next to nothing online though.

It's one of those things where if you like retro Nintendo games it will be a great buy. I'd suggest it wouldn't be something young kids would enjoy though - I'd say this is more aimed at people in their 30s and 40s who want to relive their younger days with a small and affordable bit of kit.

​Oh okay then, I'll take it off your hands...£10 okay?

Think I'd rather just get the Retro Trio 3 in 1 console that accepts Mega Drive, NES, SNES cartridges (as well as containing all the relevant ports for original controllers), but it comes with 2 controllers anyway. Can then try and get a few bargain cartridge buys on ebay and the like. This unit has great reviews, and wireless controllers, the NES has well known issues such as the short leads on controller, lack of adaptor and so on. amazon.co.uk/Ret…ole

The lead issue isn't much of an issue if you use a long HDMI cable or buy a cheap adaptor - and how is having to get up and change cartridges any more convenient?? The lack of adaptor...really?? That's an ISSUE? You can buy a mains adaptor for £1 from Poundland that's basically verified as save and perfectly usable by BigClive on YouTube. Failing that, surely most people have one knocking about?

I should have sold it on eBay for £150-200 just before xmas, crazy people paying that. I will admit I enjoyed double dragon. Thought the kids would have liked mario, I used to spend days on that.
