Bootleg NES Classics

Apparently there are now bootleg NES classics out there. I also see NES Claasic housings for Raspberry Pi units even on Amazon. All points to unmet demand for these games in HD.

Sweet. I hope the counterfeit makers continue to take money from Nintendo. Take all the monies from Nintendo.

I saw a video on this the other day. If the price is reasonable, I wouldnt mind having one.

I wouldn't either. But the question I have to ask is, are these bootleg NES minis actually any good?

I bought one on Ebay, NES classic with 700 games. I also ordered a wireless controller. I LOVE IT!!! I was skeptical but so far it is amazing. Plus, you have 4 save slots for each game. It is incredible the amount of games on this tiny machine. I am not the biggest Nintendo fan. I just don't get it. But I am hoping that going back to their roots might change my mind. I am currently playing Legend of Zelda for the first time and it is very cool.

BY the way I did not buy a bootleg NES classic. I bought an actual NES classic that has been modded. I cannot attest to the quality of the bootleg versions.
