It's pretty much on par with the S/NES Classics in that there's some nitpicks with the emulation, but considering this is by M2, it's the closest you'll get to the original thing. Sound delay is about 10ish frames according to Digital Foundry when testing it with Mega Man.
They can, or you can buy the Retro-bit replica controllers.
Amazon japan has one
I'm also wondering if it's compatible. Amazon.ca jacked up the price of the retro-bit controllers, and it's pissing me off :/Has anyone confirmed whether this controller will work?
Huh, interesting. But are you sure these aren’t at games ones or another clone?I just got back from Wal-Mart and they had about 10 already out on the shelf. I didn't have enough money with me or I would have gotten one. If you don't have one preordered somewhere and have a Wal-Mart nearby, go check and see if it's out. It looked like they had already sold a few.
It was the Genesis Mini. It wasn't one of the clones. I've got a dentist appointment tomorrow at noon. I may go by and pick one up. I probably should have gotten one today and just put it on my credit card.
They mentioned it was some logistical issue, so maybe it's just a problem with the deliveryI still can't believe that the European one is delayed, but the exact same one will still be coming out here in Australia on the 19th. Pretty sure that means AU (and NZ I would assume) will be getting the white-banded one a few weeks ahead of everyone else. Weird.
I only ever had a Model 2 + 32x growing up, wife has a Model 1+Model 2 CD+32x so weird mix here, no real nostalgia for this set just like the package. Now I'm just disappointed the Nintendo minis didn't have faux carts.
The Genesis mini-carts are only available in the press kit that includes the Tower Mini.
