So you just need a Raspberry Pi? apt-cache search tells me there are a couple of emulators so that won't be a problem. And then probably just get the usb adapter for the controller. Plus HDMI cable. Am I missing something?

You'll want a case and power supply for the pi board, but you can sometimes get those as sets. But generally if you buy the board itself, it doesn't include a power supply.

If you go the Pi route, there is an image available by searching "retropie" in our favorite nordic search engine. It completely fills a 64gb card.

I have my retro pi setup using my original SNES controllers.

Man, thanks for that.

I was actually going to buy a NES Classic Mini but the price is totally inflated at the moment with the thing costing up to 200 Euros. And now I learn from Mordecai Walfish that the experience is actually inferior to when you make something like that yourself so I guess I'll make one myself.

How? I got a USB to SNES controller adapter a while back, are you doing something like that?

I use this thing:

Works flawlessly. Retropie immediately detects my 2 controllers, no lag, no issues.

I just wanted to apologize for being a bit pedantic with my first statement. The emulation is good for a majority of people, just not on par with most PC emulators. I realize alot of people got these as gifts over the holidays and its not my place to devalue them, as they are very enjoyable gaming machines.

I plan on buying one just because it blows my mind you can buy a console at a store with Bubble Bobble on it, in the year 2016/7. One of my all time favorites.

Go diy with it. The emulation on the nes classic sucks.

I've had zero problems with mine. It even gets the framerate slowdowns in games like Mega Man 2 right. Plus, the CRT filter nails the look of early 90s gaming perfectly.

the emulator itself is missing different graphical and audio layers from the NES, resulting in poorer emulation than pretty much any NES emulator available. That said, if you're happy with it, that is what matters first and foremost. The issues with the missing elements will be a much larger problem for people adding other roms that heavily use those portions of the NES. Only a couple games that are packed in with the nes classic have issues with it.

I have a weird issue where audio cuts out on mine. Like every 4th note...really annoying. I think it's my soundbar (if I use the weak speakers on the TV, there's no issue), yet I can take the same rom and run it from my pc (to the same soundbar) and have zero drops in audio.

Haha, that's brilliant! I've been hesitant to buy one since I don't really like a handful of those 30 games they included on there. It's either that or make a DIY with a raspberry pi.
