Quote from: Twed on April 01, 2019, 05:42:49 PMI'm going to wager that it's mainly "can't be arsed to set things up" and wanting to plug something into the TV easily.
Quote from: St_Eddie on April 01, 2019, 05:47:41 PMSee, I get that but £100+ of "can't be arsed" is where the logic behind it fails me. The consumer base I 100% completely understand this appealing to are the people who have no concept of what emulation is or how to do it themselves. I can't fathom anyone with the technical knowhow wanting to waste their money on this, unless they're rich. Still people do and it's not really my place to judge. Each to their own, I guess.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on April 01, 2019, 06:39:27 PMI have the technical know-how, but a raspberry pi 3, plus sd card, plus two decent USB game controllers is going to be up around $100, plus the time to set it up, to get the roms, to make sure everything is running ok, ongoing maintenance, plus having a ugly bunch of wires around the TV...

Quote from: madhair60 on April 01, 2019, 08:11:54 PMErrrrrr I don't like the good one, I like the Sega fucking Pico mate, it's gripped, sorted, let's fucking off-road. Ooh, can't wait for the Supergrafx Mini. Go and post on a copy of Edge circa Steve Jarratt you fucking posers.
Quote from: PlanktonSideburns on April 01, 2019, 09:45:35 PMRaspberry pi? How butUSB game pad // laptop with megadrive emulator // hdmi lead // telly Surely that's the same amount of suff as this megadrive mini? Most people would only have to buy a lead? I'm not being a miserable cunt, just why people gotta buy a load of new crap? You're a five pound USB controller and a cable away from every 8 and sixteen bit console running flawlessly with most all of the games everyway and you gotta wait for Sega to hand out its thin gruel to you? Seems crazy to me
Quote from: Replies From View on April 01, 2019, 09:51:14 PMI bought second-hand SNES and Megadrive controllers on eBay very cheaply, and the short adapters that were needed to convert them to USB so they'd plug into my computer.Then a great emulator called OpenEmu which covers most classic consoles/handhelds, and lets you access the various games for each system using nice cover-art menus.Done.Every now and then I open it up, plod around on Kirby's Anus Adventure, remember I don't like computer games, and close it down again.Honestly, all of the fun you can get from computer games you can just get from watching a few minutes of a Let's Play on youtube. There's no need to spend any money at all.
