This thread is old but the guys from Game Sack have just published a new head to head video comparing the systems, so I figured I'd add it there.

David Thiel started as a Pinball sound designer and audio engineer with Gottlieb/Mylstar and then proceeded to work on most of the major consoles and home computers of the mid to late 80ies. Atari, Coleco, Commodore, Amiga, conversions and original games, David has done them all and has tons of fun stories from the heydays of sound engineering with tons of audio examples in his talk.
This panel is from the Classic Gaming Expo 2012, August 11, 2012 at the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas.
RetroUSB released this game last year and I forgot to add it here. Typically, these are only available the year they are made for but this one is still available for purchase for anyone who may want it. You can also get the binary for free here.
There's nothing more emblematic of the Holiday seasons than the cozy feeling you get waking to a fire and conifer brimming under with presents. That feeling of togetherness and warmth and holiday spirit shared while singing songs of the season with friends and family. That feeling of wonder as you lay in bed and imagine what goodies Santa left under your tree. Oh what fun!
It's time for xmas break and if you hope to get any awesome gifts you better get working on letters to Santa! Study Hall 2: Xmas Break Edition is here to help.....sort of. This year we brought back NES hard*! This game will test your skills and patience, and as always we have included blinky lights. If you stare at them long enough they might help calm you down in between game overs.
*Not responsible for broken controllers.
Study Hall....2? Yep that's right! This years xmas game is a sequel to the original Study Hall homebrew
From the folks at RetroUSB, as has been tradition, here is the new Christmas title for the NES for the year 2020: 8-Bit X-mas 2020!

Got a case of the holiday blues? Dr. Covio has the cure! Line up pills horizontally or vertically to kill viruses. That might sound easy but don't take too long or the viruses will start to multiply! If you're feeling lonely invite some friends (or family is ok too), there's enough room for up to 4 doctors in this office!
I'm not sure if anyone has seen this, but I thought I'd share it. This is only available for Android devices currently (phones, tablets and Android TV). It is excellent and their goal is to bring all the cartridge based systems to it. It is available as a Beta currently but it can certainly be tested/used. The cool thing is that you can add your own binaries to play. Below are images of the platforms currently supported and the controllers supported.

So you think you like Super Mario Bros. 3, eh? Do you like it for $156,000, because this collector sure does. A super-rare Super Mario Bros. 3 variant copy of the Nintendo game just broke the world record for the most expensive title, selling for just over the aforementioned amount.

Make sure you don't keep the battery in your PSP. I recently was made aware that the batteries are expanding and mine turned out to be having the issue. So now I have two batteries with an external charger and always keep the battery out of the system.

That was interesting! I don't think I've seen this game before. It sure lends itself for porting to the systems of the era.
