You can get the games to appear alongside - just disable the file/folder function in Hackchi2. Yes the saves still work

Ordered one for £69.99 on Amazon Prime Now (and it's coming within two hours)

Thought they'd made a mistake on the price, thought it was supposed to be £80 (where it seems to be everywhere else)

There's no official RRP for it and Amazon started selling it at 79.99 the same as everyone else. But then Nintendo direct started selling it (briefly!) for 69.99 and Amazon matched them and stuck with it.

Maybe I'll ebay it, the kids won't even know it existed. You'd think they'd sort the stock issues

Am I missing something? Whenever I click the amazon prime links it's taking me to ones that are £130 or more?

Clearly these are third-party sellers. Am I just really unlucky in my timing?

One seller called 'the price is right' is selling for £158.89. **** off!!

It is (or was) a Prime Now promotion. So only like the two places in the country you get that I assume!

Got it hacked now. Easy to do. Got 50 games on it (inc the ones supplied).

Anyone have a link to an idiot proof way of hacking, the SNES; i assume you cannot break the whole thing?

It's Prime Now not just Prime. So I'm guessing you need to be in range of the Speke (near Liverpool) warehouse where they ship them from. Still available if anyone is desperate for one.

Yep. Though if it's not DOA - it's unlikely to break. It's a simple bit of kit.

so what else can it emulate. I tried a couple of NeoGeo games but they weren't working. I've put hackchi and retroarch on so a lot is working but i don't know what the complete list is.

It will play NeoGeo games but maybe you need the BIOS first, ETA Prime posted a how to vid last night and showed added NES, Megadrive, PCEnigne and even N64 but they won’t run well.

Megadrive and PCEngine is running fine. I prefer games from those to the SNES at the moment. Gunhed, Gunstar Heroes, Soldier Blade, Final Fight and Streets of Rage. You just don't get games like these anymore and they're fantastic

I wish they had put a headphone socket on it though. Is there any way you can put named folders on it? It would be nice to have folders for the different consoles rather than 1 subfolder with everything dumped in it.
