They're different things, I don't even think the're competitors.

You can certainly do what you suggest, I did. Let's not pretend however that everyone in the real world can get hold of the roms, that knows how to edit a config file in nano when the sound doesn't go down hdmi properly or that is comfortable with copying via samba and flashing SD cards.

The Mini NES is for those people but also is just such a gorgeous device in itself and one people just "get" that it's for different people. I own one because of how lovely it is in general but I won't pretend the Pi doesn't get more use.

Of course, and I suspect this was largely your point, those people are also not the people who are reflashing the NES.

Comment Ps Pro only games (Score 1) 71

They say they don't want Ps Pro only games but ultimately if the Pro takes off they don't have a choice.

I'm sure a dev could have their game "run" on a PS4 Vanilla. In 480P. With wireframe graphics. At 15fps.

It won't go quite that far simply because there isn't that kind of difference between the two machines but running on a Ps4 and "Running in a way that you'd actually want to play the damn thing" are two very different concepts.

Comment Re:Was it EA..... (Score 1) 386

Yep, I saw the original story saying that, I stopped reading about the game. I mess about with their iOS Simpsons game and I get connection failures way too often to deal with a game that will only let me play when I can see their failservers.

Worse of course, this is EA, they retire online services for games as soon as a year after it comes out. In this case, that means "retiring" the entire game.
