My retropie uses the same hardware for both of them too.

My PC uses the same hardware to play SNES games as it does to play Dark Souls 3.

There is one glaring omission.. a network connection. Nintendo is missing a golden opportunity by not including the ability to purchase additional roms.

FUCK.THE.SWITCH. If this is some stupid Japanese business tactic to buy the switch instead, it's backfired massively for this consumer.

People wanting to buy the minis have Zero interest in the switch. They want a fairly cheap way to relive childhood and show thier kids what it was like. Anyone can emulate, but only Nintendo can provide the reproduced packaging to simulate the childhood opening of a special package

Snes9x gives you the possibility to play with others online and it's free. Need I say more?

Found the journalist who just learned about the basics of modern computer hardware.

Not sure about that one. N64 emulation is kind of a mess.

Nintendo has the luxury of owning the hardware schematics of the N64. They can write their own emulator, and have actually.

Doesn't surprise me. I can make the same damn thing using a Raspberry Pi 2 for about $20. I have a RPi3 running NES and SNES emulators quite well with wireless controller support and all. Plus it can run PS games.

Don't change a working system, as they say.
