I hovered over the number in stock in the stocktrack website and it showed the price in January. It may have been released before but it has dropped like a stone in 4 months.

The games look fine to me. My issue is that they didn’t include dual shock controllers. That’s half the fun of the OG os1

You'll find an adapter is sold that lets you use pretty much any modern bluetooth controller. Granted it costs extra, but between accessories and homebrew, this thing has monster potential.

When Walmart drop the price to $19.96-$19.97 in all theirs stores, this will sell out everywhere imo..

I'd rather spend $20 on toilet paper, it's more worthy to wipe my ass with.

The Wii is 2005/2006 technology, tough to say which is better, but I suspect a homebrew'd Wii is on par... better in some areas, weaker in others. Does it even have an HDMI though?

The PSC is 2018 hardware, even though it's basically a Raspberry Pi. 12 years can make a big difference.

I prefer the portability and compatibility of the PSC.

Thanks! I have a Wii kicking around so I'm just trying to measure the value for myself. I haven't tried homebrew emulators for the Wii since the retro games I have played have been on the virtual console.

Is it possible to go to a different GVRD Wal-mart and get this for $19? I'm nowhere close to the Metrotown location.

Also the Wii cannot handle PS1 Emulation.

I personally prefer to use a Laptop with a Dualshock 3 controller for my emulation needs. Plus this way I can actually use Retroarch and use shaders and filters to make old games look good
