Product Description

Color: Black

The FC Twin can play both NES and SNES cartridges. The top-loading design corrects many of the issues experienced with the original consoles, including the 'blinking red light'. The A/V output, while not as perfect as the original NES model 001, provides great picture and sound quality.

The FC Twin is even more than what it promises. Yes, it's a system that plays old Nintendo and Super Nintendo cartridges (PERFECTLY!), and the controllers are exact replicas of the SNES controllers, but this system is an improvement over both old systems, too.

For starters, the FC Twin is far more compact than either system. It's only slightly wider than an SNES cartridge and about 2/3rds as deep as an SNES. it will easily fit on an already crowded shelf next to your DVD player and other entertainment systems.

Secondly, the system connects to your television with modern RCA cables instead of the old coaxle connector. This means you can put the sound through your stereo system and also be confident that this will connect to any modern television set (including flat panel screens).

Finally, the NES component is a top loading cartridge system utilizing a card slot reader, so it plays classic Nintendo cartridges with far fewer problems than the original system. This means less time spent blowing on your old cartridges, hoping they'll work this time around.

The FC Twin has been ideal for my needs in terms of cost efficiency (cheaper than buying either original system), space efficiency (smaller than either system), and reliability (more reliable than an NES), but there are some minor imperfections that buyers should be warned about:

1. The FC Twin uses SNES controller sockets, which means that any SNES controller device can be used with the FC Twin, but classic NES controller devices (like the Zapper) cannot.

2. According to Wikipedia, the following Nintendo games will not work with this system: Bandit Kings of Ancient China, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Dragon Warrior II, L'Empereur, and Rad Racer II.

This game console plays both the 8-bit Nintendo games as well as the 16-bit SNES games. It is so convienent. I dont have to have two seperate gaming consoles with extra cords and extra space on my TV stand for storing both decks. I have used both the 8-bit and 16-bit slots in the decks. It played the games exactly like the original decks. The one big downer about it is that i cant pause any games. If i have a game paused for over 5 minutes, when i get back to it, it is frozen or the graphics are way off making game play impossible. I have had to start over many games because of this problem. I remembered this after a few times and didnt pause anymore. And the deck is very unstable. The slightest bump can cause the game to quit. Once i learned all the glitches i learned to avoid them. I still prefer this deck over having to have both nintendo decks. The price was right for this game to. I payed less for this deck than i would have for just one of the nintendo decks. If you have the money and the room i would recommend buying the original nintendo decks. But if your like me and dont have much money this deck is a much cheaper alternative.

This machine is perfect. First of all, it's great having a console that plays both NES and SNES games. Next, the AV cable is a dream come true for those of us with new televisions and 8-bit cravings.
All of my games have worked fine so far. My only complaint, and I knew what I was getting into, is the controllers being crappy and awkwardly light. It's no problem to get on Ebay or use Amazon to find some original SNES controllers, which work fine with the FC Twin.

My only real beef with this system is the terrible audio quality for the NES side.It's pretty bad when I'm actually wincing as I hear the music for Dragon Warrior 4!

One of the main reasons I still love to play classic games like Megaman,Dragon Warrior and Ninja Gaiden is to hear all the great music that is featured.When you take that away.... well,it's just not as fun playing with your ipod on;but hey,at least you can still play.

On a side note,it's been said that you can NOT play Dragon Warrior 2. Well,I could play my copy just fine.Maybe it has something to do with the save feature?? So far though,everything played out perfectly.

As for the SNES side it's almost completely flawless.The sound quality is perfect as is the gameplay.The only thing I don't like is that you cannot play Super Mario RPG;which I think really s-cks.That was one of my favorite 16-bit games.You can't play it for the same reason you can't play Castlevania 3:Dracula's Curse on the nes side.It has to do with a newer chip that was used in the game's creation.It makes the information process faster.The good news is that there are only a few games that use that chip both on the nes and snes side.

As other reviewers have said,the cords with the controllers are short;I recomend buying an extension cable for the snes at your local used gaming store.Also the controllers that come with it aren't very good (at least in my case) The buttons had very slow response rate and some didn't even work.However the contollers can be replaced with traditonal snes ones and work perfect for both 8-bit and 16-bit.

You might also find yourself in a struggle with the death grip that the FC twin puts on your nes games;supposedly this lessens over time.
