The $500 Aluminum Nintendo NES Console
Somewhat akin to the resurgence of vinyl records amongst trendy audiophiles over the past few years, the Nintendo NES has seen a bit of a purist uprising recently. For those that miss afternoon-long gold ring expeditions and fantastic mushroom hunts, the good people at Analogue Interactive have reinvented the classic console for modern times, creating a system that plays both NES and Famicom cartridges. Constructed from one solid block of 6061 aluminum, the Analogue NT is built with the original Ricoh 20A3 and Ricoh 2C02 hardware, packed with stereophonic sound capability, and can be adapted for HDTVs. Four player ports means that you and your friends can reenact those long basement treasure hunts, though hopefully somewhere that isn’t mom’s basement. Priced at $499, relive the past with the Analogue NT – available for pre-order here.
