:lol:

To first sue emulator companies but then use an open source one to build a product you then charge for. Pathetic.

People might want to steer clear of this. Reviews are not great with complaints about the emulation and the weird decision to have PAL versions of some games that are running at 50hz. Here's Eurogamer's review.

And a few more for good measure...

Seems this thing is a total shambles and a great missed opportunity for no doubt a multitude of reasons. The mix of PAL and NTSC versions is particularly baffling.

Absolutely no regrets in cancelling my pre-order.

Yep, sounds like a shameless cash-in banking on the enthusiasm for Nintendo's better effort.

I see the price of these has been slashed across the board. You can now pick one up for £50 at numerous online retailers.

Still not interested.

I think consumers today have come a long way, just in even 5 years. They know what they want, which is always good.

If pick one up at £30 for the cuteness of it. Same for any of the Nintendo ones too.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

it went from £100 to £30 in 2 months. That is a depreciation of 35% every month :lol:
