Does anyone have either the NES Classic or SNES Classic?
I ordered a SNES classic, supposed to be here tomorrow(Fri)
They were in stock at several places on Tues.

I know its a bit late to ask now, but is it worth the cost to get HDMI?
I was disappointed when I figured out my NES Zapper gun didnt work with my Plasma or LCD TVs!

I really wish SEGA would come out with a Master System similar to the NES/SNES classics!
With 30 to 50 original SEGA games would be on my must have list!

SNES Classic is HDMI....should have a cable included.

The zapper tech depended on the known constant of how CRT's rendered lines and the set refresh rate. Modern LCD refresh rates and how they render lines F's all the sweet timing to hell and gone.


But yeah, the NES and SNES classics are HDMI and come with a cable. Controller cables are a bit short though.

I just setup a Raspberry Pi and dual boot it with RetroPie, loaded up with ROMS, and OpenElec for watching movies off my NAS.

Look up the Sega Genesis Flashback HD, has a lot of games
