    Really cool idea but I hate the form factor of the GB and wish they had made different form factor models.

    Same here, this whole FPGA thing makes things so much easier. If this gets a SNES core it’ll be awesome, if it gets a PC Engine core then that would be the icing.

    This is overblown. As long as your original hardware still works, there's no issue keeping your original SNES, Genesis etc tucked neatly in a drawer with its respective cables, ready to connect to the OSSC or what have you.

    These new FPGA' systems are great to have available as an alternative to real hardware, but let's not pretend it means everyone should throw their old consoles out and replace them with new ones because they're too much trouble.

    One thing that's bugging me about this is that the buttons look like they are really close together. If they are about the size of the buttons on a Switch joycon or 3DS the tip of your thumb could cover all four buttons and would make something like holding run while jumping in Mario quite difficult. On a handheld ergonomics are everything, if it's annoying to use you simply won't use it.

    Spoken like a man who hasnt tried the hassle free, ultra clean, fpga life.

    Once you own/try one of these systems, you quickly realize there is no going back.

    I'm more concerned about the adapters that were promised for the Mega SG which have yet to materialize. That said, it's hard to put much faith in Analogue releasing all the adapters for this portable in a timely fashion...

    This isn't being a hater (I have both the Super NT and Mega SG), this is being realistic.

    Probably not, I don't think their other systems worked with the Everdrives. However jailbreak software was released in short order to allow loading roms from SD, so it doesn't matter.

    *edit*

    Correction, they flash carts work just fine!

    The other systems most definitely work with Everdrives and MegaSD.

    D'oh, I stand corrected. I'm not sure why I was thinking they didn't, even though I use my AVS with a flashcart all the time.

    Still waiting for this. Meanwhile, even Pandora's Box has a handheld now for 80 bucks. Yes I bought it :-)

    This might be ok for something like Bio Motor Unitron or Card Fighters, but I can't imagine playing KoF R2 or Match of the Millenium with that d-pad.

    I just hope it doesn't take forever for all the cart adapters to be released.

    Analogue sold their adapters for the Mega SG finally, and the Game Gear one is defective and can potentially harm your console. Replacements will be sent out in 30 days:

    https://support.analogue.co/hc/en-us...-0-PLEASE-READ

    Hopefully this wonít be an issue with the Pocket.

    They sold out before I could buy 'em. Maybe just as well...

    My main concern is if the dock is included.

    I want this so i can put all my handhelds away. Iím trying to minimize all my consoles as much as possible without emulating, and honestly a nearly all in one ďitís a handheld? Put the cart into that thingĒ is perfect.

    I'm guessing that the dock will be extra.

    I'm debating on the dock. I have a GameCube Gameboy player, so this would just be extra stuff. I know I'll get at least the base system and NGPC adapter at a minimum, but the dock depends on how much extra
