The hack's real, live and out of beta then. Can't wait to get some time to do this then... then it'll be the best console ever.*

* Maybe.

I kinda don't get the point of the hack, surely it's just like a less functional Retro Pi that way? I'd rather have the Retropie for that, and this just the way it was created.

I'll just leave this here. :D

Yeah but that wasn't my point. I get that Pi owners are one of the most annoying breeds of person around, however I know loads of people who would never be capable of setting one up, getting roms, configuring broken rom sets, launching and installing the system and generally running one isn't something that everyone has the digital literacy skill for.

However the SNES mini rom hack is as complex, hence why I don't know why people would bother.

I agree with that article, but isn't one of the points of getting the SNES Mini to NOT hack it?

I would be tempted to get a SNES mini just for the proper controllers.

• Download hack software
• Plug SNES Mini into PC using power cable of SNES Mini
• Click one button to hack the device
• Click another button to add ROMs
• Click another to sync them to the device

That's literally it. If it was properly complicated, I wouldn't have bothered. I guess sourcing ROMs is a pain and it's not *absolutely* foolproof, but this was a piece of cake in general terms.

Okay, which of you said his name three times in front of a mirror? Own up, come on.

I guess I might have said "Dok, Dok, Dok" in front of the mirror this morning but I was only trying to hack up some phlegm.

I'm just surprised the dok showed up again at the same time as I did.

But if you're gonna hack the snes mini, then yes, I'd think I'd just fire up an emulator instead as well.

...

Then there's the Atari Flashback Portable that simply comes with an SD card slot... that's just an invitation.

Can totally concur with this, since my arcade machine is basically one giant emulator. That said though, doing so would mean having to sit at my PC (or, indeed, standing at my arcade cabinet). I don't always want to do that. And god knows I don't want to unwire the damn thing just to plug it into my TV. The form factor is what makes this, for me anyway.

I guess that's a pretty fair reason.

I probably wouldn't hack it myself though... I like the fact that it's a legal way to obtain some great classics.
...and I would like to own one but I refuse to play the preorder game with such limited stock.

I do have some other retro consoles/joysticks, of which the most recent one is the aforementioned Atari FlashBack Portable. And yes, I did download roms for it, but that SD card slot was just a grand invitation.

I got one of these at last!

I have game paralysis. No idea what to play. I think it might have to be Super Metroid but my boy's very keen on trying out Kirby.
