AMAZING deal on the new SNES 2's, but I heard they were crap compared to the originals. Is this true?

In denial eh? Just keep telling yourself that it's just as good no matter what anyone else says.

Didn't they lose the stereo and RGB capability with the switch to the SNES 2? Or was it just the RGB they lost? RGB doesn't matter to me since I can't use it anyway, but for anyone who would, best you could do is find a used SNES Original.

No Im not in denial, I am perfectly happy with my snes 2 that I am getting, I also have a old one anyway, plus I dont have any use for an expansion port liquid snake and I can really care less about RF cus I would never use it, I was just trying to be nice and tell people that you can buy them new of cart-mart that may be interested.
IMO the snes 2 is way cooler. =)

Not to mention the shitty plastic they are made of.

The cart doors are very prone to breaking.

Welfare SNES it is. Overall a much crappier, cheaper machine. I don't know why anyone in their right mind would buy one instead of an original SNES.

But you seem hell-bent on getting one, since you think they are so awesome. Nothin anyone says is going to stop you.

BTW, how much was yours? I seriously hope you did not buy one of those 100.00 packages.

umm I did pay 100$, it IS new, I have wanted one for a long time and the plastic is not shitty at all, I know alot of people who own them. I swear when 1 person says somthing is bad on this forumn everyone follows the pack. THis isnt a thread on my buying descision, its a thread telling people taht you can buy them at cart-mart.

The point is not your buying habits, but man, 100.00?

That's like when Kadesblades bought those 2 NEO CD pads for 157.90 from buyrite.

Its not that you paid for it, its that you paid so much for it.

well I whent on ebay for them and they were like 130-160 new, so I bought mine for cheaper off of cart-mart and I wanted a new one, so I guess I did bad, but whatever, I got what I wanted, I never heard they were shit until now and have played on them before, they seemed fine to me, well I guess I will see.

It's been a while but I think I didn't like my SNES2 because I couldn't use SVideo.

The SNES 2 is great. Its still as well built and I never had any problems with mine. The loss of RF and and the Exp. port is no big deal. I'd probably say the same about s-video too, when I tried out the s-video cable on my old SNES a long time ago I don't remember seeing seeing a noticeable difference..it's a 16 bit system using sprites, afterall.

I can live without RF and expansion but no S-Video? <img src="graemlins/ohno.gif" border="0" alt="[Oh No]" />

S-Video makes a huge difference in sprites where color bleeds and fuzzy graphics are more noticable than on 3D textures.

I have a SNES2 and it has never failed me, also the RGB is easy to fix, just three wires, and once you mod it, the RGB ouput is better than a SNES1 (too dark).

I don't care about the RF, I never use it, if it bothers you that much, you can pick up an RF unit for the N64, they are compatible on the SNES2.

The lack of S-video is bad though, to mod it you would probably need a little pcb, unless you are working with SMDs.

Plus it looks much better than the SNES1 IMO.

I didn't know the SNES had S-Video. I bought my SNES 2 for about $20 at Best Buy in summer of 1999 I think. I don't give a rat's ass anymore about that system. You had it for years and then you want another one that looks different. It plays the same. You are interested in the chase and not the product. You will be happy with it for a little while then kick yourself for getting it. The same goes for Neo collectors. They finally get all the games and when there is nothing left - they toss them.

Anyone else see the irony in this statement?

And 100$ for a SNES? Damn I got one I could sell!

I got my SNES2 new for $30 a few years ago, I don't know why you guys are being mean to it, it's just a redesigned system. It lacks an Eject button (man those were fun!). But I've never looked back on buying it.

Liquid Snake stated SNES 2 does not have an expansion port is important becasue that is where you plug the MVS in to play Mercs (or according to Liquid Snake "Shock Troopers")

EDIT

I don't see whats wrong with them being $100.. I mean I wouldn't pay that but it doesn't really seem all that high for a brand new system.

But why has no one mentioned the best part about cart-mart? Messaging the staff and fucking with them is what internet shopping is all about! <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[LOL]" />

I truly believe that S-Video makes a bigger difference on 2D games than it does 3D games. I bought a SNES ver. 2 when it came out and was pretty excited as it looked more like the S. Fami. than the American system did. But after I couldn't get the s-video to work I thought maybe it was just a defective unit. After the second one didn't work I called Nintendo and found out that it doesn't support it. Even though it's website said otherwise. Why they took it out is a mystery to me. Does it really save that much money to get rid of s-video support??
