And it is in great nick, only slight discolouration.

Unfortunately, no game, but it can be had on ebay, which will be ordered tomorrow, as it is a bank holiday here, and they are closed.

Awesome! Have fun playing the classic Nintendo Entertainment System. Still one of my favorite gaming systems ever. Smile Cool

USA?

@MacGyver I plan to buy Pinbot for it, fantastic pinball game. We used to stay at my brothers and play it well into the night.

Shame to ROM of it floating around isn't very good, loads of graphical problems and glitches.

I take it youre in the UK? You might as well modify your system so you can import US releases. Majority of UK and European released games that were also released in the US are censored or they play at a higher speed. Although you do have some exclusives, like the Smurfs game, Beauty and the Beast, Ufouria, New Ghostbusters 2 (the game made by HAL labs- not to be confused with the crappy GB2 game released everywhere), and Noahs Ark. which are all incredibly fun games.

The Pinbot rom I have is fine. It is the US version. Any region rom will work with any emulator worldwide, so you dont need to stick to specific regions when it comes to emulation.

Sounds cool. I don't think I've ever played Pinbot, but I do remember the Pinball video game for the NES- that was fun. (Featuring an early appearance by Mario too.) Smile Cool

Pinbot is one cool game. You should check it out, if you like pinball games from the future Wink .

Tried the US rom from emuparadise and it is still glitchy and graphical problems. I'm trying it on the DS if that is any help?

Got it for the tablet too, which I'll give it a go later and see if it is just the emulator on the DS that's the fault.
