More demanding emulators, such as N64, don't run that well on the SNES Mini. With a Pi you can play pretty much anything up to Dreamcast and PSP games smoothly, with a greater choice of controllers. Not to mention the millions of other things a Pi could do, gaming related and otherwise.

I love my Pi. Yeah, it's mainly been used for Retro Pi using a 128gig image I found but I also used it as a great media centre for a long time and a pretty shoddy Google Assistant using my PS3 camera for a Mic and Googles SDK

Ps, don't buy an unknown brand of amp like Onkyo, stick with known brands like Sony and Bush

Ẁell it's a 128gig image but a lot of that is fluff. Videos, box art etc. In saying that, it does have one hell of a huge library:

Hi there. Can you recommend sources for images? I like the idea of everything done for me! Have a pi and had a play but never seem to have time to properly investigate its potential...

Also, any recommendations for wireless controllers?

Onkyo unknown brand??? And compared with Bush? This may be a joke. Is like comparing a Jaguar with Renault.

Thank you
No problem. What I will say about that image before someone else does is that Rey himself doesn't recommend using it but that's only because he wont be updating it with the latest cores etc
As a standalone image though with Attract Mode it's fantastic, and for the average user it's more than adequate. Plenty of other options on Arcadepunks though, fill your boots

It's a HUKD meme.
Pi - £30
32GB micro SD - £10
Case £5
Power supply £5

total £50 or thereabouts. The rest looks like fluff that you don't need, have already got, or could buy at Poundland.

So nice getting-started package, but doesn't seem like a particularly good price for what you get.
Is it just me or have they jammed the MicroSD card in the wrong end? lol

Yeah I paid around £45 for mine a few days ago with a much better case and psu.
On the subject of images I find mad little pix images to be the best. Especially his Unified 128gb one. I'm going to write it to an external hdd then expand and build on it.

Amazon, paid £30.88 for the Pi then got this case too. I guess if you don't have a spare hd mi, microsd card/reader then you are better off getting this deal. But personally I think the case/psu i got is better.

It was 2am and I was falling asleep but I get the tone it was intended in now that I've re-read your comment.

But at the time I just thought I'd add some info for anyone that was interested in buying a Pi. I've got about 6 now, all doing different things, from alarm clock to wildlife cam, but the 3 is setup for Kodi and RetroPie.

Thanks - downloading it now. Now to get a card it will fit on - any recommendations - I have been doing some reading today and it seems not every 128GB card will take it?

Yeah, I had to put it my 200gb and extend the available space. Madlittlepixel has also released a couple of trimmed images which should fit on all 128gb cards. Otherwise look through his YouTube channel ... there's a tutorial somewhere on trimming dead space from image files so they will fit.

Any decent 64gb images on there? Got a couple of 64gb cards lying about and an old Pi 3 gathering dust which was replaced by a Shield a while back.

Made quite a few Mame machines in my time so know what I'm doing. Just wanted to know if there's any decent 64gb images. Too old and lazy these days to compile my own like I used to. Are these well compiled clean images or are there many duplicate ROMs listed??

Look under pi images @ arcadepunks. There's plenty there. Click on the more info for whatever takes your fancy for a video demo and user comments. However I am currently currently making a 1tb image using madlittlepixels 200gb image (it's actually around 140gb) as a base to expand upon. This possible by writing the image file to a external hdd.

Thanks. Yeah I had a good look. Still researching which image I should go for on YouTube. There's a number of YouTubers with reviews on these images and Madlittlepixels seems to get the best reviews. I only have 64GB cards so need to find one that fits. It's between PDARK and Madlittlepixels right now.
What joystick or controller should I use. I want the best all-rounder which works with the most games.
