So I tried it yesterday. It's actually easy to pair the controller to the device. The games were fun but like some reviews I found the buttons aren't always responsive. Still fun for ~$6 :)
Is it a standard Bluetooth device? Perhaps usable with a PC? But then, I doubt the buttons would necessarily work very well there either.

I suppose there's also no luxuries like saving high scores?

(Also, who the heck would willingly play Tower of Druaga..?)

This is an environmental tragedy. Why not sell one where you can load different games? more stuff for the landfills..

Thank God I'm not the only one that wonders the same thing!
This looks neat, maybe I'll pick one up if it is the arcade version of the game.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

I was actually wondering if it would be hackable. Would be nice to load a bunch of game on it.

Are these arcade versions or the classic home console versions. If the arcade versions this is definitely worth it IMO as the home versions really sucked.
The Pac Man set is NES version. No arcade versions at all. I don't know about the other sets, please read online before buying.
Go on Youtube and read the reviews. Basically that company scammed everyone by sending arcade versions to reviewers but released NES versions on the market.
For $6, it's worth a shot as a gift to someone who won't care, but not at normal price

Yeah, I picked one up because the artwork on the box showed the arcade versions. I was disappointed but the gameplay is still OK. It will still make a good gift.

No love for QC?
The boxes DO HAVE French on them! However, this store does not exist in Quebec.

Nearest store to Montreal is Ottawa!

I would never pay $30 for one of these, but for $6 it's worth it for some cheap retro gaming thrills. Thanks OP.

The Midway 3-in-1 pictured in one of the posts must be arcade ports? Only 3 games, and I would assume they're not Atari versions from the screenshots on the box. Possibly that WWF game also.

There's a chance it could be as it's by MSI Entertainment, a different company
