Need to get that special geek friend of yours a gift for the holidays? What if you could get all of your friend every classic game made into one portable console? This isn’t through the Nintendo DS shop; in fact it’s much cheaper. Thinkgeek.com has a portable emulator on sale for $79.99. It can play any game made for an 8-bit or 16-bit console. It contains 4GB of storage with an SD card slot for added space. Truthfully, 4GB can get you at least thirty classic video games. It’s also very easy to download these games for free. I already use an emulator to play games like Super Mario World, and finding these games is very easy. All you have to do is search for NES ROMS or SNES ROMS. You could always play Mega Man as well or any other SEGA related game. The best part about ROMS is they are FREE.
I know these games are surfacing on the app market for the Android and iOS, but having a legitimate D Pad feels much nicer and doesn’t block your view. Hurry and purchase it now though, it won’t be $20 bucks off for too much longer.
Since the holidays are coming soon, I’ll be posting a new geeky toy every Tuesday to help you decide on what to get your friends.
