Hopefully, for those of you looking for one, you've been lucky enough to pick up a NES Mini.

I've just seen this hack allowing you to return to the home screen without using the reset button...

Rather than having to manually press the reset button to get back to the NES Classic home menu, which is the standard way to get back to change games or to access NES Classic save points, instead gamers can use an app called Hakchi2. This hack will then allow players use to a customizable gamepad shortcut as a home menu option, with the default set to down and select on the controller.

The Hakchi2 app itself is also a multi-purpose tool, which backs up the NES Classic’s internal storage and replacing it with a modded version. This has plenty of potential for further use from gamers, and no doubt creative system owners and thinking up other ways in which NES Classic can be hacked. Below is a video showcasing the hack in action, found courtesy of Polygon.

It will be running snes emu soon I reckon got the hardware for it...

I do love the concept of the mini NES. But christ its far to expensive for what it is.

If you can manage some basic coding then get a Raspberry Pi. I was temped on getting a mini NES...But the Pi can can do a lot more.

Just adding up how much it will cost to build this & where to buy components.
