I've waited this long so I might as well hold off for the inevitable $5 bargain bin price by the summer. They completely missed the boat with this one, would almost have to be given for free with any purchase at this point.

The controllers are quite good. I prefer them over the Xbox 360 ones for games that don't require analog sticks. E.g. SNES games.

The hardware is supposedly around raspberry pi3+ level? And is more powerful than the SNES classic.

The built in emulator is garbage and the games run in low fps. Hacking it is a must. And it is fairly easy.

The psc can emulate things up to n64 well. Retroarch itself has a steep learning curve though because the ui is garbage.

If you do hack it, you will need a USB hub (powered preferred) if you need to have multiple controllers plugged in because one USB is occupied by the USB stick. The $20 insignia one at bestbuy does well.

I do regret buying it though because my laptop does everything better.

So- can i buy it at Best Buy today, and then go back on 18th to get price adjusted? (for insurance against OOS on 18th).

Or will Best Buy decline price adjustment on 18th?

Schadenfreude? Or the fact that a legit gaming product can be paid with your pocket change.
