The US version, it plays US cartridges...

I haven't tried the gun with it, which I own, but the standard NES controller worked.

It was at a 2nd hand store for $19.99, "used" but everything was still wrapped up, the box wasn't shrink wrapped though...

I played Super Mario 3 and Tiger Heli on it, which was cool.

The thing weighed less than 1 lb.

"While the system works with most US games, individuals have reported problems with a few (primarily Castlevania III, Gauntlet, and Mindscape games) due to special in-cartridge hardware being incompatible with the NES-on-a-Chip ASIC.

There are also serious audio reproduction inaccuracies which cause music and sound effects in most games to play incorrectly or not at all. In Dragon Warrior III, some of the bass sounds are dulled, but the rest of the sounds are unaffected. The model of NES-on-a-Chip used in the system provides comparatively inferior audio compared to many other Famicom clone systems.

The system also suffers from particularly serious slowdown issues evident in stressful games. These audio and slowdown issues are particularly apparent in games like Kirby's Adventure which feature stressful CPU operations and complex audio."


I'd rather spend the extra money on a real NES or Famicom than waste $20 on that crap.

Sounds disgustingly about right. I'm pretty pissed off about the Yobo fucks and that system. While like 1% of the legit US library won't run right on it, the rest does and it has driven the goddamn costs of both NES and SNES games through the roof. Formerly games at my buddies old shop that were $5 for most titles (even in box if they were just average stuff) are now mostly $10 and higher going into the $50s and well over, and now even the fucking box and manual whack the price higher. SNES has gotten totally out of control due to the dual playing and snes playing yobo. Formerly good shit that still is overly plentiful such as Mystical Ninja which really is a $10 game now is like $35-40 range at used shops that follow pricing books. It really fucks me off Yobo even exists.
