sans cartridge port and scoreboards, and i doubt nintendo will release meaningful firmware updates, so it's not entierly comparable.

Raspberry Pi Zero says hi.
Cheaper than AVS.
The AVS provides a much more authentic experience though, since it's not an emulator.

Still cheaper than an NES Classic Mini or whatever it's called, and runs way more games from way more consoles.

Why would they have anything other than the charging component in the usb cable? Is it because it was used to upload the emulator and original games onto it? Could you even upload something else onto it? I heard the specs for this thing are far more powerful than they need to be.

That's basically why I was confused; I'd fallen for Nintendo's assertion that the USB port was power-only.

Maybe they just claimed the console was not upgradable to naively thinking that hackerspeople won't care and even try to do whatever stuff to it then.

The functionality of the USB port was there for maybe purposes like when some games break, such as freezing or crashing due to faulty game ROMs or buggy emulation (mainly because of not testing enough on the developers' part) they would just issue upgrades to the firmware to stop the consumers complaining. In other words, they lied. Geez, being able to have the firmware changed so easily means you can do anything with that console. It would be fun if someone makes it run a SMS emulator. :roll:

Though it's not official, maybe it was also supposed to support some simple USB peripherals, such as USB speakers and mice. Anyone tried that?
