Analogue & Retrousb FPGA Consoles OT


#602

Dang man. I know the feeling. Hope all works out! Securing a buyer for an NT Mini is a sure thing at the very least.


#603

Of all the things I would sell off to make money to pay down debt. The least likely thing I could replace wouldnt be my go to. If they never make one again in that form, I’m not so sure if I’d want to risk that.

@Socksfelloff wanted one too if you decide to go that route.


#604

I’ll have to have a think…it’s all just a possibility.

And yeah, I’d never be able to get another. Hm.


#605

Hey, @Rich! I’m definitely interested as @New002 mentioned. I’ll shoot you a PM.


#606

. >:c

Oh well.


#607

I get what you’re saying, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. At the end of the day there are things more important than a fancy NES so to speak (or whatever game thing).


#608

I know but @rich could sell a few console’s that are easily replaceable. When I sell things that I’m uncertain about, it makes it easier to know I could replace it fairly easy. Not to mention the utility of the NT mini. It’s basically a SMS, GB, GBC, Game Gear, colecovision, Atari 2600-7800 and more. That alone is why I bought mine. That would cost me a lot more to replace the ability to play those on a HD TV in that clarity. I’d be selling off that fancy new neo Geo and a Saturn, and even a modern console first. That’s my 2 cents.

Edit: Also when you sell a few consoles. Re-buying them 1 at a time doesn’t have the same sting as a $500+ for that machine. But in fairness to @Rich , Analogue is probably working on a NES/Famicom on the same FPGA as the Super NT that will be HDMI only and in a plastic shell. I think the Metal NT is done.


#609

Yeah, it’s hard to justify the Metal Nt when it seems like Analogue will produce another NES version that’s cheaper.


#610

The new nt probably won’t have the jail break. I’m betting the next product will surely be Sega, but what do I know. Analogue is sure making a future with out a CRT that much easier. I rarely play SNES on my crt these days because of my Super NT.


#611

All my SNES/SFC gaming is on the Super Nt now unless I play on the SNES Classic. The two are in different rooms to facilitate that. It’s just easier to sit down where I normally game on the big screen and play there.

I HOPE the next one is SEGA. Genesis is still my favorite 16-bit system. That said, I won’t be disappointed if they make another NES box that’s affordable.


#612

I would like the Genesis too. My favorite system is still the SNES but if Analogue could do an all in 1 Sega System and incorporate the 32x and CD into the system itself I would day 1 that for sure. (it needs to stay High Definition Graphics for shits and giggles too). Also, I would love if the the new NES analogue would include a DD.

Looking at what the polymega people are doing… I wish Analogue would consider doing an all in one machine too. I think that would limit their options for future projects.


#613

My Super NT collects dust :frowning: I still just play on my regular one lol.

I’ll probably end up selling it if the additional cores never materialize.


#614

Same here. It’s an amazing piece of hardware. I was stoked to get it and now it just kind of sits there while I play og snes on a crt.

Next analogue product needs a crt degaussing boot sound/splash screen.


#615

I had a Super NT on order and just recently cancelled it because I came to the conclusion it would sit in a cabinet and never be used. Seemed hard to justify when I have a decent SNES set up already in place. (And even that is an under-used thing.) I do have some second-guesses, though, when I think about the long-term future of my CRTs.

(Also didn’t like the fact that they charged my CC months before the item is slated to ship.)


#616

I’m thinking about buying an AVS as the NT mini doesn’t seem to be coming back anytime soon. Any suggestions?


#617

I don’t think the NT Mini IS coming back? At least not in its previous form. Maybe something more akin to the SuperNT but in the NES style.


#618

Exactly my line of thinking but I wonder how long it will be before redesigned nt mini is released.


#619

And it wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t include the other cores in a plastic Nt mini in the Super Nt style.


#620

Oh 100% it wouldn’t have any additional cores (unless a third party went out of their way to figure them out ofc).


#621

Hunh… I really like playing on the Super Nt. I think it’s simply the convenience of having it in the living room where the SNES is stationed in the Retro area of my upstairs. I just tend to play more in the living room these days.
