...have a feeling that newer and upcoming cartridges for this console won't sell that well and that cartridge releases will grind to a halt in the not too distance future. They'll need to a release a dedicated home console that supports the cartridges to keep the interest going.
the screen is terrible...the PSP and PS VIta screens are far sharper and better.
Would never buy from funstock, for one thing they filter the reviews and block any negative ones.
Heat from me too. Cracking wee console and it's a good saving for the whole lot. Would've been nice to chuck the two new cartridges in too though.
Its a £40 saving on buying everything individually I think. Heat from me.
You dont get a lot of games without buying the £149.99 bundle :-(
What's excuse for such high price? How is this abomination any better than emulator??
Be wary what you buy from funstock. They block negative reviews on their site! Check reviews elsewhere before buying.
It's immediate payment, unfortunately. I know Funstock have being sending promotional e-mails out about this on an almost hourly basis but, it being such a niche product, I'll be massively suprised if most of the stock isn't still in place at the March release date.
I dunno man this does not seem like good value to me. In my opinion too so warning its an opinion, only retro gaming that has aged well it from the NES and beyond. Atari games are so primitive. Also all the games here only about 10 are worth playing and can be emulated on amything for free

Its the NES version on it, NOT the arcade one, not worth it
Just go round head butting everyone (y)
The screenshot looks like the NES version?
Exactly! This one has excellent price, but I bought 2 in China, that do actually have 10 buttons each (only cared about 3, but it doesn't hurt to have more for MAME emulator) and it was 20$ each. Aaand all the charm gone ...

Code GYL took a further three quid off my order (of three)
I know, but if you're serious enough to own a large collection of original carts, then you're probably serious enough to go all in and experience them in the best way possible. Otherwise, you might ad well just go down the emulation route. I myself, own over 100 boxed with manual SNES games, and want the Super NT. But you're right, the cost of the unit is excessive.
considerably more (lol) . $ 449 less shipping
Much better, but considerably more expensive: https://www.analogue.co/nt-mini/ Info: http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2017/06/11/whether-you-have-60-or-600-theres-an-hdmi-nes-for-you-you-have-60-or-600-theres-an-hdmi-nes-for-you
that's a generous mark-up

Hehehehehe, that's cool, lol. Do, it interfaces via USB-C then?. :-) (Or are there other tricks up it's sleeve as to how it does it instead, or whatever?), thanx.
Weird, now back in stock again. Thanks for the heads up!
It should also be said this can work with GBA emulators as well as it has L and R buttons but you can't dump your GBA cartridges as the cartridge slot is only Gameboy and Gameboy Colour compatible.
So just to clarify: it's basically any phone with a USB C port. Which is slightly misleading as the picture clearly shows a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in the advert which uses Micro USB and so ironically is not compatible? :/
Basically any phone that has a USB c connection?

Retro Freak Premium Edition UK Console just £99.99 delivered from Funstock.co.uk£94.99
It's included in the Premium pack, but not the standard version. The one I bought was that one, came with the adapter to play GG and SG 1000 games, plus another adapter to plug in original pads ( you don't have the connections on the actual unit, just USB on there ) and the main console / USB controller. The emulation is pretty good, several different types of scalers / filters for each, the included pad is pretty rubbish, but you can plug in other USB controllers, but you'd be missing some the additional buttons to get to menu's etc.
Where do you get an adaptor from pal?
I don't advocate buying the cheapest. I've got lots of Retro gear and this interested me but since I don't own any carts this can play I wondered what else this could do. Clearly appears that raspberry pi does everything and probably more, since I have a few of those , it doesn't seem worth me buying it.
Lol bloody phone changing my words lol
If it's gone mouldy, you might want to clean it, pronto!!
