Nintendo axed the beloved NES Classic Edition, though you can still grab one on Amazon right now if you’re willing to pay a premium. On the other hand, you can also spend even less than what the NES Classic originally retailed for and get a retro system that’s about a hundred times better. The Hyperkin RetroN 1 Gaming Console for NES doesn’t have old NES games stored locally like the NES Classic Edition does. Instead, it works with the original NES game cartridges. That means instead of being restricted to a handful of games, it’ll work with every NES game ever released!

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • High compatibility for NTSC AND PAL cartridges (via bottom case switch)
  • Premium classic-style “Cadet” controller (10 ft. cable)
  • 3 ft. HD cable, 6 ft. Micro USB charge cable with USB AC Adapter
  • Also includes AV ports with AV cable
