Not exactly legal, but interesting, to be honest, it's the same as a PSX emulator on the PC, you can just put a PSX disc in your PC and run it off the disc.

I have. I saw one that was on display at my local Replays store. It looked pretty cool for playing NES, SNES, and Genesis games on it. Before the internet and emulators on the PC took over, this would have been a surefire hit with gamers.

These are unauthorized consoles that are of questionable quality. They get sued occasionally, then they change their company headquarters and start up again under a new name.

That would explain why I thought they had a different name.

what does the F stand for so i can look it up!

Most likely Famicom or something since it runs both those, but it also does Genisis games.

Famicom (??????,  listen (help·info), or FC for short). In South Korea, it was known as the Hyundai Comboy (?? ???) and was distributed by Hyundai Electronics. In Russia, an unlicensed clone was manufactured called Dendy (??????). In South Asia, it was known as the Tata Famicom.[citation needed] It was succeeded by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

thats what i found

Smells like patent infringement with the SNES games.

Though supposedly the NES's patents have expired, so theoretically a clone NES could be legal, provided none of the chips in it contain Nintendo-written code.

I wouldn't waste my money on one, though. These clone systems aren't exactly known for their quality, and likely won't run some games.

I heard that was a myth. Or that patent expiration doesn't allow cloning of the NES or something.

If I want to play old console games I just get an emulator for my PC, and download games that aren't ESA protected. If I can't get legal copies of SNES games then its not wrong to get them for free is it?

Believe it or not, you don't need some ultra high tech machine to play super old games. I have 2 emulators, one for N64 the other for Gameboy. N64 has a few problems with select games, and Gameboy emulator works perfectly (Not that the games are any good but still).

Thats a grey area. Technically illegal, but no ones going to send the police round over that. Stick to 2D systems, they work flawlessly.

They would have a hard time trying. One of the many pleasures of living off shore.

PS: I just found out I could get Starfox 2. :) Can't get Dinosaur Planet though :( (Krystal's original game)

Starfox 2 was canceled if you're wondering.
