When I was young I had a Nintendo Entertainment System that “Santa” brought me on Christmas morning. I had a blast playing it with my friends and parents. Ever since the NES Classic came out I have wanted one. I was really disappointed when they only produced so many of them and scalpers shot the prices up to a place where people could not afford or did not want to pay. Then the SNES Classic came out with some more of my favorite games with an affordable price and the same thing happened, but not to the degree that it did with the NES Classic. I then began looking at alternatives. Please feel free to click on the links and if you feel like purchasing that would be awesome because it supports my blog. If not that is ok too. At the bare minimum I just want to keep people informed that there are other alternatives out there that can be just as fun.
The Retro-Bit Super RetroTRIO combines the NES/SNES/Genesis into a 3 in 1 system where if you purchase the cartridges or already have them can play your favorite games and relive your fondest childhood memories. I did read some of the comments on the reviews. Some people did not have the proper TV to play with the Zapper and one person had one of their old cartridges fail. You actually need one of the old style CRT TV’s in order for the Zapper to work. Be careful using the old cartridges because they can be up to 30 years old. I also have links to newer cartridges with a ton of games on them. The connection is an S-Video connection so it will not be compatible with HDMI without an adapter. If you want to take a look at this option here is a link:
