@MAB glad to see more 3D classics, but I prefer M2's work on the PS3 with Neo-Geo Station, Sega Vintage Classics, and Capcom Arcade Cabinet. They look incredible at 1080p 1:1 pixel mode with emulated scanlines. Throw in online co-op, movie recording, music jukebox, trophies and you have a great bargain at $4.99/each.

I really wish Sega/M2 would release more games on the PS3 and in 3D. Super Hang-On looks awesome in stereoscopic 3D on a 50" HDTV!

There is no way this will (or should anyway) cost "hundreds of dollars".
If this is similar to the system Bunnyboy AKA Brian from Retrozone is working on it will be built using an FPGA board, and according to them: "The current estimated price is $139.95"

Other options to this:

CLONE/System-on-a-chip:
Those Retron5, and other clones have issues with certain games, accuracy, sound issues, as well as jailbars in some cases.

EMULATION:
It's cheap, but it's inaccurate. As a classic game I would like to use my original game cartridges and know I am getting a 100% perfect version of every game.

RGB MOD THE NES:
This use to be a cheap deal, but since so many people have done this over the last 10 years it's driven up the price of PC-10 and Nintendo VS boards, which people use to sacrifice for the RGB PPU. I never did this myself because I don't believe in destroying any classic hardware.

BUY A NINTENDO FAMICOM TITLER
Good luck finding one of these monsters for a cheap price! :P
