New way to play old Nintendo games

Do you have too many game consoles lying around? Want to be able to get rid of a few? Me either. But, if you want to impress your friends with a console that can play both NES and SNES games, check out the FC Twin. It is essentially a Nintendo coupled with a Super Nintendo with no other special hardware or modification necessary.

The patents for both the NES and NES expired back in 2005, which allows for products such as these to be made legally. It includes two SNES controllers, but your classic gray ones will work just fine with it. This is the perfect gift for any gamer, it lets them play all of their classic games, while keeping their older consoles in the closet in pristine condition.
