i just decided to get one after hearing about a lot of dying snes consoles in the past few years of being here. it can still play those games with lockout chips, they just have to be the right ones. that, and it can play super famicom games!
the only games that you have to make sure to get are
kirby superstar: copy that says 'made in japan' on cartridge super mario rpg: copy that says 'made in mexico' on cartridge
because the other ones don't seem to work with it.
oh and that dreamcast portable has the crappiest design. why no cd cover?
Good to know. But if my new old SNES does fail I will probably replace it with a Retro Duo instead of a Supaboy. It's really cool but I think I still rather have the games on TV instead of portable.
the supaboy actually does come with an av cable, you just need a controller for its use when plugging it in the tv.
looking at those other portables, they're not manufactured, just hand crafted by people, as most of the video uploaders state. the portable dreamcast looks decent, but why is it such a problem to make a cover/tray for the discs? looks pretty unsafe
