That was a really helpful reply. Everybody knows you have a pi. We get it. The op wants to hear from someone who bought a mini.
Now we know who wrote this article.   ::)

Also, side note, the Virtual Console needs to be a separate "app" on the Switch
Agreed.  Would be nice to keep all the retro stuff off separate to the new stuff.

Yeah, somehow Sony's figured out how to maintain active libraries across 3 consoles but it's an impossible task for Nintendo.
Nintendo continually claim it will confuse their customer base.  If anything, that says a lot to me about how little Nintendo think of their customers.

It's software, corporatebros.  We're kind of used to it now.

The whole point is that its a "retro" console that plays on a "non-retro" TV! Where will your Pi on a "retro" TV be when there are no more CRT's sold, or are expensive/in short supply? Alas, that won't be long.

Great, your Pi plays retro games. So does mine. So does my PC. So does my SNES console. It doesn't mean there isn't a market for the SNES classic mini. It is sold out EVERYWHERE after all, and I suspect the Pi isn't.

I know from that the Pi is a PITA to set up and keep working well and by the same token I know the SNES classic mini won't be. There is still a market for the SNES, whether you sleep with your Pi every night or not. My Pi is not a better device than the NES Classic Mini and I'm sure it isn't better than the SNES classic mini either.

Oh, and the SNES classic mini is legal - a Pi isn't with the SNES roms on it and nor is the multicart.

Want a SNES classic mini on a retro TV? Get a HDMI to Scart adapter. Simples.

That was a really helpful reply. Everybody knows you have a pi. We get it. The op wants to hear from someone who bought a mini.

OP asked "Anyone buy the Snes Classic?". My answer was no and I explained why. It's pretty huge that a "retro" console won't connect to a "retro" tv. RPI 35 + power supply 10 + power switch 10 + sd card 10 + case 10 + PS3 wireless controller 20 = 95$, but you have a better device than the classic console. I don't get it because I can actually buy an original nes or snes console and a multicart for less money and have a console that will take original carts, work with any tv, just won't do shaders on new lcds.

I don't get it because I can actually buy an original nes or snes console and a multicart for less money and have a console that will take original carts, work with any tv, just won't do shaders on new lcds.

It would estimate the cost for Nintendo to add composite out to make the device compatible with virtually every tv in the world less than a dollar. It is a retro console, that doesn't work with a retro tv. Not all, but many people still have a crt at home.

On topic - what is the OP even asking? And they posted in the wrong sub forum.

I was just asking this BYOAC community if anyone had or was thinking of picking up an SNES mini and if so what your thoughts are on the device.

I guess I could have posted in a different spot in the forums. I was more or less just interested in the opinions of the people in this community.

No, you're fine. Some people don't like that not everyone worships at the Church of Pi.

I think main is fine, its not like you  can swap carts in the mini and its emulation. Judging by the posts, it needs to be in the pi section.
I guess it's fine to discuss Raspberry Pi's then in this "main-topic" :)

Still don't get why people would buy a $100 retro-console, while you can emulate multiple with a device (as I said a PC or... RPi) cheaper or just as expensive. For collecting/hoarding? Sure, if that's your thing, go for it. But that's not for me... Feels like throwing money away. Especially if you already have a machine capable of emulating consoles (as almost everybody has on this forum).

I hear ya. For me like many others here I built a standup arcade with emulators and I love it but I also love the plug and play aspect of this Snes classic. $100 for something that is already developed and has a casing and ready to go isn't bad for me considering how much I spent on my basic standup setup. That's like the cost of one of my aimtraks lol.

However I wouldn't have bought the Snes classic it if it wasn't hackable. I'm not spending $100 for 21 games. That being said it's nice to hear everyone else's opinion like yourself because you and others raise good points.

It's $80 , plug and play with no set up / config, no SDCards, comes with 2 very authentic controllers, its pretty much idiot proof, and you support the parent company and dont have to steal any roms.

Stealing software and utilizing ---smurfy--- hardware is great, if it wasnt Pandora's boxes wouldnt be a thing.But if there's no companies left to make new stuff ; what are you going to steal in the future?

Still donít get why these Pi-sters think itís cheaper. With the cost of controllers, a suitably large enough SD card, and time (= money) for setting up and endlessly tweaking not only emulator settings, control configurations, and input lag settings...the price exceeds something like this.

Besides, piís are for the filthy casuals.  >:D

I work in IT all day so screwing around with emulators and front-ends is by far my least favorite part of this hobby.  I haven't bought an SNES Classic yet but likely will should one come available for MSRP.  Plug and play via HDMI sounds real good.

Emulation Station does take a long time to boot. Haven't tried lakka...but again, the amount of time it takes to reconfigure yet another set-up just turns me off. I'd rather spend that time playing games than sifting through a handful of text files and hitting switches.

I'll seriously out cash on the barrel head for a Pi image that doesn't suck.  I downloaded a few "complete sets" and attract mode sucks balls on it.  Did love the Game Gear theme where the game image was two inches and blocked by glare.   :P

Iíll agree with that. I tried retropie, didnít even finish setting it up to the point of playing a game - and was already looking for something else. I have no complaints with lakka. Using rgui to display 240p. Attract mode on it would be cool as I develop theme and modules for attract mode, but Iím ok with it as is because it works extremely well. Iím using a rpi2 and the thing is quick.

Wow guys, it's not about that whole RPi (though it's fun to bring it up in every post). Most of the people here own a device (PC or whatever) that can emulate NES and SNES, so why bother to buy another (expensive) device? And of course I do get why people do so.  But that's just not my thing. I rather spend that money on something else. Another RPi for instance ;) Or beer. Or both.

Never knew that PC and RPi in the Arcade scene were like iOS and Android. Everybody has his own opinion (and expresses that once in a while), but respect that. Otherwise you are a really pathetic person in my opinion. Belittling people because of an opinion or preference, is just sad.

I don't plan on buying it... (yes I have a Rasberry Pi). I just hate how every company is cashing in on the nostalgic thing... Plus I can't stand Nintendo, for all of the bs they put you fan boys through... Release NES classic... run out right away, release more... run out right away, stop production (due to costs?). Release Nintendo Switch... run out of consoles, Release SNES classic... run out right away. Etc.

Nintendo has to be the worst company right now. Can't keep up with demand, keeps releasing more hardware, creates this black market of $200+ nes classics. It's freaking crazy!

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Just to be clear I am not a Nintendo Fanboy, I was always more of a Genesis/Sega Cd/Dreamcast kid. I actually never owned a Nintendo product aside from the Virtual boy ahahahaha That being said I purchased this as a plug and play device that I did not have to create! Man the hours and hours I spent with Hyperspin lol But ya I HATE the black market.

Since this thread is off the rails anyway, I might as well chime in...

I can fully boot into emulation station game-ready in less than 20 seconds on my Pi. By the time I find the controller and sit back down on the couch, it's ready to play. Matter of fact, I think my only complaint is that it takes longer to shut down than start up.  :-\

I REALLY wanted a NESC and SNESC, be ended up not buying either. The way Nintendo handled the launch of these systems was colossally bad. I was just off-put by the whole thing. It baffled me how hard they made it to get one. And having a job/life should not preclude getting one.

I may reconsider next year when all the nerd-hype has vanished, scalpers have moved on, and they wind up on end caps at Target.
If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

Otherwise you are a really pathetic person in my opinion. Belittling people because of an opinion or preference, is just sad.[/size]
So, you're a really pathetic person since your are belittling people because of an opinion or preference?

Never knew that PC and RPi in the Arcade scene were like iOS and Android.
Stick around longer.

I would probably have a much higher opinion of the Raspberry Pi if not for the Raspberry Pi community.

Beyond all the banter.

I'll add in that I bought one of these on pre-order with intentions of giving it to one of the grandkids for christmas.
It arrived Tuesday.  The quality is good, the menu is good.  Should be easy and super mario kart plays well.

BUT to be honest, it feels about the same as the NES classic attract mode setup for Pi3 that someone did recently.
It wouldn't transplant itself with my own pi setups, but Nintendo did a nice job on the licensed product.
It would have been better at 40 bucks rather than 80 for what it is.

This SNES variant looks like it would do the trick if you can't get ahold of a SNES at a reasonable price and want to try the Pi world.
