There is many High Tech gaming consoles in the market today but this stunning unofficial Nintendo Entertainment System is just brilliant. Analogue Interactive is opening up pre-orders for the $499 Analogue Nt, which recasts the classic 1980s console as a gorgeous aluminum machine.
Carved out of a single block of the aircraft alloy, the console does come with a few modern luxuries like updated video and audio circuitry, which help provide a clean RGB picture and shielded stereo sound. But otherwise, it’s all about preserving the retro purity of the console. It takes original NES and Famicom cartridges, uses original NES and Famicom controllers, and supports peripherals as exotic as the Famicom 3D System and Famicom Disk System if you have them lying around.
It should run like an original NES, too, because it uses the exact same Ricoh 20A3 and 2C02 silicon chips — harvested from old unwanted Famicom systems whose plastic cases have become yellow and brittle over the years. “There is no downloading, updating or installing,” says the company. “No patches or DLC. No bullshit to deal with. It’s made to play games. That’s it. Sit down, plug in a game, press start, and play.”
You can play all your favorite games from the bygone days and can have fun with simple games with basic graphics. This can be a lot of fun and a must gadget to have.
