Mine has recently shorted out or something. I don't know what happened. It turns on but the controller acts weird (both of them) and the screen is all distorted. Planning on buying another one. Anyone selling one or know good sellers for such a product?

Kind of sad, I've had this one since the SNES was released :(

eBay's a good choice to get a Super NES. Depends on where you live where game stores still have an SNES and some SNES games.

Sad to hear 'bout your SNES, though.

I live in the boondocks so the only possibility for me is online. I'm just worried about getting another one and something that comes with it end up not working either, like the N64 controller I recieved with my N64 I bought not long ago.

I think the FC twin lets you use your original SNES controllers also plays NES games. I have not tried one myself but you can pick them up around 30 bucks I think off of Amazon and eBay.

I was thinking about it, but I heard they didn't play all the games. I'd rather have the real thing to. I may end up getting one of those though if I can't find a seller that looks legit. I've found a couple used SNES's on Amazon. Is 60 dollars high for a "very good" condition, with all the cords and 2 snes nintendo brand controllers?

Wow its hard to believe they are that expensive. I guess its no surprise Nintendo seems to hold its value on quite a bit of things. I am not sure if its too high or not. I have only purchased a few used consoles b4. From what I could see on Amazon and eBay searches I just did looks like most good condition and better are 40 bucks on up. Sorry I was not much help.

No problem! I'd be searching on eBay as well right now, but it's blocked at work :D If I had the money to blow right now I'd just buy one of the new ones for 150 lol. I'm thinking about starting a collection of old systems and games. The oldies are far better, in my opinion, than the new stuff.
