Comment: Neo Fami and other clones (Score 1) 35

If Neo Fami is any indicator on the quality of the Pocket Fami, expect bad sound (way off key) and palettes that are slightly off. I'm not sure if the two are made by the same company, but I would expect ANY nes-on-a-chip clone to not quite reproduce the real thing.

It looks a little bulky and expensive compared to the Game Theory Admiral. You could probably find one of those for $60, still. If the screen is excellent, then it'd be worth it (if you wanna play your original carts).

Plus, the box says it is "FC Compatible", and it's up to your imagination to figure out what that means.
