Super Nintendo Entertainment System Console, Discounted

Super System

First brought to Europe in 1992, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System blew gamers away with visuals and gameplay that dragged videogames into a spectacular new era. The Super Nintendo features true stereo sound, multiple scrolling backgrounds, and twice the built-in memory of the older NES - and giant-sized Game Paks allow the system to recreate sprawling worlds that take weeks to explore.

Graphics Power

The Super Nintendo's built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) performs complicated calculations on in-game images in the blink of an eye. This is responsible for 'Mode 7', the ability to take hefty 2D shapes and twist and spin them through three dimensions - allowing games like Super Mario Kart to create pseudo-3D tracks. In the face-flappingly fast F-Zero, this is done at speeds that made even the bravest gamer tremble.

Game Library

Some of Nintendo's biggest arcade and NES characters return in blistering style on Super Nintendo. Super Mario World; The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past; Donkey Kong Country; Super Metroid; Super Mario Kart ... all are regarded as the some of the finest games in their genres to this day. Third parties have helped raise the Super Nintendo's total catalogue of games to over 500.

Controller

Building on the seminal design of the NES controller, Nintendo set the standard for future videogame controllers with the faultless Super Nintendo Controller. The comfortable directional pad returns, but two extra buttons and the appearance of twin shoulder buttons - a videogame first - effectively double the gamer's control.

Super FX

Game Paks containing the Super FX chip - including dazzling debut title Star Wing - brought proper polygons blasting to TV screens in jaw-dropping style. Later games like Yoshi's Island used the next-generation Super FX 2 chip to warp and bend shapes in the most eye-pleasing of manners.

My favourite ever games console
Great console and many fond memories.

But I would pass on buying a discounted one from CEX, bet it will look a state.
Spend the extra 30-40 and get a really nice good condition and mostly boxed one from ebay.

That'll live with you until the day you die. You need to find that guy on FB, go to his house and take it back. He's probably playing it as we speak.

The plastic even looks a bit yellowed in the display picture Though, I know, I know, it's nearly 30 years old (gulp)

Didn't know that. Anyone want to do my roots while they're at it? My older consoles are long gone but I still have a Gamecube. Somewhere.
Had the imported Super Famicom about a week after Japan Release date, Final Fight was the only game i had at the time

I seem to recall the pal console was much slower

Yeah JAP ran at 60hz but I beleive the PAL ones were 50hz, so games were slower.
Still got mine, couldn't guarantee it works though (same with the games). Great console though, would rather buy a tested used proper one than one of those mini versions with games installed.
Can anybody help me move house please,? It's a right faff .
This is my favourite console of all time but you can buy the classic with 20 games and HDMI connection for the same price and then emulate.

Random!
Can it take HDMI input?
I need the psu for an ensoniq fizmo
What's the best way to emulate these and others on say Nvidia Android TV does anyone know? I dipped my toe into it a couple of years ago but didn't fully get into it. At the time I think it was "Retroarch" and "Retro-X."

Also, anyone know a way to play ancient PC games like "Age of Empires", can you download a VM image witha load of games on, then boot it in VMWare say?
Google it!

Only downside are the controllers are often worn out. My SNES mini classic controllers feel great.

Weren't PAL consoles also letterboxed i.e. not full screen or am I misremembering? Either way, I'd look to buy an import personally. Or just emulate.
Bit overpriced for just the SNES. Just go to a car boot or even on ebay and you'll get a better deal than CEX. And you'll probably get games with it too!

Ah sheeeet. I understand, I remember borrowing a copy of Mario Bros 2 back in the day and losing it. I still remember the feeling of coming clean to my mum, dad and the lad I borrowed it from. Utter doom. Turns out it must have fallen out my school bag in French as it turned up a couple of weeks later somehow, before my parents had sorted the cash for a replacement. The relief is still one of the best human emotions I've experienced lol.

Did the ratbag ever get any comeuppance?? Have you looked him up online to see if the cycle of crime continued?

Yes Retroarch is still probably the best way.
Takes probably 20 mins to setup with controller / emulators and then just add roms.
YouTube will have easy to follow setup guides for which emulators are best for each console (snes9x is the one I use).
Also search YouTube for front end emulator and see what takes your fancy.

Reminds me of a time years ago when I was college and I just got the dead rising steelbook on the 360 and it was expensive at the time. A backstabbing friend asked if he could borrow it and I stupidly said sure just give me it back when your done with it. Sometime passed I asked him about it and everytime i asked about the game I would get a different excuse. He said he would bring it tomorrow then forget etc.then i bumped into him in town one day and said remember you still got my game. His response, oh that I sold that ages ago. I have never let anybody borrow my games since. Lesson learned
Didn't realise they were worth this much. Might chuck mine on eBay!!

Actually you can leave it in the sun and it works better. That peroxide stuff does make the console plastics go brittle
CupN00dle21/08/2020 01:43

Not really dumb as there are HDMI converters available now


Yup. Mine is hooked up to an OSSC (along with my Amiga, Dreamcast, N64 and Wii)

I still have mine, the gun and about 45 games. I have very fond memories of the SNES and it comes to mind when I see the question "best console?"

IMO the reason why the SNES was so good was not down to Nintendo games (although there were some very good ones) but the excellent 3rd party support and games.
Loved playing street fighter at my mates. Best conversion at the time. Much better than my mega drive
I have one of these - Super Wild Card. Handy for 'backing up' your carts. I've updated mine to have a USB reader in rather than the 3.25 floppy.
