There was much less fuss made over the SNES Classic Edition last year than there was over the original NES Classic when it was released in 2016. We’d like to think that’s because people are finally realizing that there are much better options out there. A perfect example is the Hyperkin RetroN 2 Gaming Console, which costs just $45 right now on Amazon. While the SNES Classic only plays a handful of preinstalled games, the Hyperkin console can play every single one of your old SNES cartridges. What’s more, it can also play every single one of your old NES carts, too! Definitely get one of these over the SNES Classic if you’re into retro gaming.

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:

  • Plays NES and SNES games
  • Comes with one wired NES and SNES Controller
  • Compatible with NES and SNES controllers.
