Enter the Analogue NT, a $500 console that does one thing: Play Nintendo cartridges. It appears to be the size of a USB hub and cartridges are top loaded into the console. This will make you wonder why the original NES was the size of a small toaster oven. Technology has come a long way and the Analogue NT is proof of that.
What makes this 3rd party console better than the rest? There is no clear answer to that question. The base $500 model does not include HDMI output (you have to pay $50 more for that). The only thing that makes it stand out is the minimalistic design. If you have an original NES with a TV that supports composite inputs, you may be better off sticking with that. If not, this console may be just what you are looking for to play those old school console cartridges that you picked up at the yard sale or Goodwill.
