Yes they are, the exact same as the original ones.

What they should have done however is release it with the analogue controllers.

I've never collected a reservation of a "sold out" product from Argos before... should I assume that they will have it in stock on the dates they specify on the reservation, or do you get a notification via email when it's ready for pick up?

If you don't have a 6 digit reservation code it's not reserved and you won't be able to get it, their system is a bit crap that way. If you've got the code they'll be holding one for you

Sometimes you can click through to reserve and it'll say sold out, and send you a blank email. Then they don't have it. That was happening loads to me last week with these but sounds like you got through OK, they'll definitely have it and will hold it for the two days mentioned :-)

I bought one Friday and sold it in CeX on Saturday. I hacked it but all the faffing around getting a compatible USB annoyed me. Also there's no wifi or ethernet so to add games it's all very tedious in my opinion. Main thing that struck me was that they were actually charging €100 for this a few months ago. In my opinion it was very very basic and worth about €20.

I'll actually be chuffed to play MGS and Res Evil 1 on the default setup.

That alone will be worth asking price for me.

Will Autobleem it later though and prob just make it a Mame machine... need my Willow fix.

Imagine how I felt when kids were buying the NES Classic for their granddad


Just picked this up. The box is a hell of a lot bigger than the NES / SNES Classic boxes... just in case you were planning on toting it in your handbag / manbag
