    Well .. it looks like this thing is smaller and doesn't use up as much battery power. Both of which would be bonuses.

    Seems to me it only has three buttons... so much for games that used the 6-button controller

    :/

    And it supposedly doesn't work too well with games that use saves, not for RPG nuts like myself.

    Why don't NES collectors buy World Class Track Meet, and forget about Stadium Events?
    By the way, how much does a Ben Heck NES portable cost?

    FEAR NOT!

    I will show you the way for I have knowledge in this arena.

    His website clearly states that should he mass produce a portable Atari 2600 he would request $350.00 plus an existing 4 switch 2600.

    I just don't see the point of paying so much for an item someone handmade when you can get an official one for less than that.

    ....I'm also not into buying homebrews either....

    I just prefer to spend my money on something that officially came out, seems like part of my collection more than a homemade piece.

    Oragami Mario Figure some girl made in her 7th grade art class or an official Nintendo PVC Mario Figurine? Give me the official Nintendo Mario Figurine any day! :P
