It has. They wanted $165 for a used 2nd Gen NES as GameTrader. A beat-up copy of the original PacMan on NES goes for over $20. Both gold and grey versions of the original Legend Of Zelda go for no less than $40 each... with box and booklet, they want $60.

It's fucking expensive because retro 80s shit is now fashionable again.

HAHA! Whatever. I got the 2nd Gen NES thing. I need a first gen that works though cuz I gave mine away to someone in need. I wouldn't mind a 2nd Gen SNES and a 1st gen SNES in good condition (mine has crayola on it).

I'm Back?

The 2nd incarnation of the NES was designed to be even cheaper to manufacture then the original NES. It is top loading, in order to relieve the blinking blue screen, but it lacks the RCA connection (RF only) and some claim that even then the video output (thus pic quality) is inferior to the original. It was released in short supply and didn’t last for long in the mist of the 16-bit era, thus it’s a rare and expensive find today.

Hummm, it seems now might be a good time to sell my Nes collection.You know Before the 80's once again become uncool.

also sgt avoid these carts at all costs .

the NES and SNES have the rfu ports and im pretty sure they are compatible (those grey things that plug into the cable line). The SNES and N64 have the av out port as well as the game cube but the game cube has a new hi def video out.

So it would seem that the SNES is backwards compatible with the NES. The N64 is backwards compatible with the SNES. And the GC is backwards compatible with the N64 all in terms of video connectivity.

The NES has a built-in RF modulator. All you need to connect it to your television is an RF switch. The SNES, N64, and GameCube all have AV ports (and in the Cube's case, a digital output as well). The RF modulator that you're talking about is compatible with all of these except the original NES, since that one has it built in. In order to hook any of these systems up to the coaxial input on your television, you're going to need the RF switch. If you have RCA inputs on your television or VCR, then you can just use the multicable that comes with all three of the latter systems.

Is that that panasonic system? (link won't open), I nearly imported one of those to the UK until I realised what freaking price it was gonna be, and that it also wasn't multi regioned.

Neat idea though, liscensing the technology for other products.

You can buy it fully modded, from what the site says, but it'll cost you your eternal soul, your first born child, and your virgin asshole. Seriously, it's almost 500 dollars to get it that way, they might as well do those things while they're at it.

If it had been cheaper and I didn't already have a cube I'd have bought one, but no point now, other than to show off with, besides there aint no more room under my tv for more gadget boxes at the minute.

I'm waiting for the day that someone builds a HDTV with a built in Playstation or something, I'm amazed Sony hasn't already been down that road yet.

/waits for someone to prove him wrong...

Oh, I've seen stuff like that, I nearly bought a portable tv with a dvd player built in, I guess the game console technology would be out of date quicker than regular DVD playback, you'd be changing your £1000 tv every 3 years or so..

Yeah, I've seen the Q. Really cool, but like Jones said, you'll be giving up essential body organs to get it. I don't need one, though. I've got three GameCubes, a DVD player, two VCRs, hifi stereo system with CD players and cassette decks, etc. I hardly use the VCRs or the CD player, and never use the cassette decks, but I've got them if I need them. As for all the functions of the Q... I've got all those bases covered with my Cubes, DVD player, and CD players.

Now are 3 game cubes really necessary? I sure hope that two of those game cubes were free. I shouldn't be talking since right now I have two xboxs but that will change soon.

We were conversing about the megaman series semi-recently, so here is a decent flash animation concerning mega man 2 which I viewed recently. Thoughts familure of the nes series may get a kick out of it.

It'd probably be easier to just buy a universal power adapter kit to plug the US charger into. I'm not sure how much those run for, though.

Nob, if you can't find one on your return, I can let you have the site of a very reputable GBA dealer who will sell you one for 5.99 or you can be really l337 like me and get a USB charger lead for 3.99

Or you could always buy a step up (or is it down) convertor for it.

Stopped by GameTrader in the mall earlier today... FINALLY found a copy of this game that I've been looking for for ages. The game is called Qix. It was the only copy they had, and it was $18. Not cheap, but it's a rare find around here.

I've got a NES too!

My game's list is not too big. I guess I'd need to dig up some of the classics as well. I still own a working Game Genie and the original Zapper and controllers (with a few bite marks on them) btw.

There's this serie of games I'd defenitly want because of the good memories, it's called "Adventure Island x" where "x" is 1 to 3 as far as I can remember. I used to rent those on boring sundays but I was stupid enough to never actually buy them. Which I regret now.
