The retro mini video game console trend happening right now is cute and all, but these “classic” consoles are the last thing you want to buy if you actually want to play classic games. Consoles like the NES Classic and SNES Classic ship with a handful of preinstalled games, and that’s all you get for $100. Meanwhile, you can pick up a Hyperkin RetroN 2 Gaming Console discounted on Amazon for $40 and play every single NES and SNES game cartridge ever made. The choice is pretty simple if you ask us.

Here’s what you should know from the product page:

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