Score: 0 


Do a search on eBay's game category for "FC Twin". A new NES clone is out this one with added SNES support. And it uses SNES controllers.

I expect the NES to be NOAC level compatibility. Wonder how the SNES function works? Could see it having trouble with special chip games.

Assuming the SNES functions well enough, I might look into one despite the $60 tag. I do have an NES and a SNES would run cheap but this would save space.

From what I've read of it, SNES support is excellent. It will even run Mario RPG, which normally does a lockout chip check. And it should support Japanese games. Wonder if it will support PAL games? If it can bypass lockout checking by not having the chip then maybe PAL/NTSC checking is also bypassed.

Someone noticed some edge fuzzing, but the dude was playing on a 60" Sony widescreen HDTV. On my 20" Sylvania flat screen it likely won't matter.

Went ahead and ordered one, cheapest seller listing on eBay.

Avoid eBay seller bryansvideotrader. Guy isn't delivering on the FC Twin I bought from him. Told him to send me a full refund or else. Had to buy from someone else.
