Woah, that thing looks unbelievably cool!

I'd want to wait until I hear some reviews before getting too excited, but it could prove useful to someone like me who never owned an SNES but has a Classic and *would* like a couple SNES and Super Famicom carts in my collection. Or as an easy way to play ROMs without having to do a bunch of fiddling with the hardware.

I’m impressed! Looks like a foolproof hacking method.

I saw the news about that the other day. It's like you buy the module, and you turn your SNES Classic Edition potentially into both a SuperNT+SD2SNES (or Super Everdrive?) at the same time. Hell of a package if you think about it.

Install video shows it installs Haxchi on SNES Classic, so it is just an USB OTG adapter and a cart slot. Nothing magical, but a SNES cart dumper at $60 is pretty awesome.

In other news, Reicast was recently ported to the SNES Classic:

Wow Reicast, hadn't heard of that one in awhile, the kind of working Dreamcast emulator I remember from way back.

And hey if it works through a $60 device allowing it to work like flash kit and a cart dumper all in one tapping into the HDMI aspects of that Nintendo box while leaving it virgin territory without installed hacks, that's a big win.
