  • Excerpt: "...the time. I don't think Nintendo will ever outshine itself with this one, I mean yeah they made the Wii but it got way boring after time and they are butchering good games with it.

  • Excerpt: "...in this case. The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which was also known as the SNES, was originally released in Japan in 1990 and was an instant hit, the initial shipment selling out within hours. In Japan it went by the name of Super Famicom, Famicom being short for "Family Computer". It was not long before the US got their hands on it, in 1991. The UK and rest of Europe finally had to wait no longer when in 1992, they were treated to a little ...

  • Excerpt: "Ah the Nintendo SNES, back in it's day it was up against the SEGA Mega Drive. Games were being released like the Super Mario titles for Nintendo and the Sonic The Hedgehog titles for SEGA. But times have changed and now Nintendo or SEGA are no more the superpowers of gaming the new superpowers are The Sony Playstation 2 and The Microsoft XBOX. The SNES was around and started up in 1995 along with the SEGA Mega Drive. In those days you didn't use discs ...

  • Excerpt: "...nestling underneath my stomach, the Nintendo SNES was one of the first true video games machines around for the home. Like many others I guess I got a SNES machine back in the early 90's. Me and Mrs D got it second hand from one of her cousins and conned ourselves (as you do) that it was actually for Lewis dave27 (then 5, Yeah right!). It went up in the top of the wardrobe for Xmas and we got a couple of games (for him, you understand) to play ...

  • Excerpt: "As a collector of retro consoles, I recently bought a super nintendo. Now compared to graphic nowadays, SNES graphic are not really up to much. But as with all retro consoles you have to see past the graphics and see the great gameplay available. Although I don't feel the SNES have many great games the few it does have are great and are classics. My favourites are Super Mario, super Mario 3, Super mario world, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, ...
  • Pros: Fun games

I have recently bought a brand new snes games console (although it was second hand) and I recommend anyone else to buy one if they see one for sale.
