When I was a kid, the first console I ever owned was a Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was an ugly grey and purple box with rectangular cartridges, Super Mario World, Mario Paint and Starfox. It is also my favorite gaming console of all time. Although finding a device to PLAY SNES games is quite easy, finding one that is PORTABLE is not. For years, gamers have been modding and building new ways to play SNES games, but now there is finally an affordable, realistic option.
Meet the Hyperkin “Supaboy”- a portable, pocket sized SNES console that allows you not only to play your old favorite SNES games, but to plug in two more controls so your friends can join in on the fun! Among other cool things, the console features an intricate cartridge “locking” feature that makes playing games and keeping them in the console a hell of a lot easier (don’t you hate when people try and pull your games out?). It also features a headphone jack, for those long car trips and airplane sit-downs. Oh, and it’s compatible with all the original SNES hardware! Controllers such as the Mario Paint mouse and the SNES Super Scope work without any conceivable hassle. The Supaboy can be yours today at Amazon for only $79.99- a small expense for a load of fun.
