You may all have read that it can now dual boot the NES Classic as well so you can choose between SuperNES or NES and play both systems. I happened to pick one up on launch day. I was coincidentally walking in a mall before opening and I saw two people standing outside of a GameStop, not thinking anything of it I walked by. A couple minutes later it occurred to me that it was launch day and they were probably in line for the system. I went back and got in line and there was a sign posted outside saying they had 10 in stock for walk-in purchase. I was #4 in line so I figured I would pick one up. I think the system is great, the controllers are right on and a good value for the cost. The games run so well, and the rewind and save point feature adds a lot of enjoyment to play through games that you've probably played before in the past and now just want the enjoyment of playing as much as the challenge.

It looks really nice and the controllers are good.
But did Ghouls & Ghosts slow down that badly?

I have added Atari 2600/Megadrive/PC Engine and Gameboy Advance - all seem to work fine.
But...........since I hacked it I'm feeling more annoyed that I paid £70 for it.
I could've got a raspberry pi setup with a wireless controller for less.

Yeah, Ghouls & Ghosts and many SuperNES games did have slow down. The games play so similarily I have not yet noticed the difference. I haven't compared my carts running side by side to the SuperNES Classic yet, though no detail has jumped out at me as being different yet.

Amazing how quickly this stuff gets hacked.

I'm sure some folks were lined up to get one JUST for that very reason!

I think its a great hack, Ive only added additional snes games but the fact it uses the Nintendo interface and emulation is all good.

Nice to connect to the Elgato and stream the games.

It's well worth doing. I've decided no to go overboard and just stuck around an extra 20 games on, real classics like Addams Family.

That's cool.  I guess doing the hack is like what I had done with the Intellivision Flashback.  It was changed to the Ultimate Intellivision Flashback and it is full of games.  :)
