I saw one at the pawnshop today for the very first time and he was selling it for $75 dollars brand new.

I just wonder how much money the guy at the pawnshop paid for this game system because $75 seems a bit high.

It depends on whether you want something to play games on, or you're looking for authentic Nintendo hardware. You can get all manner of Famiclones for less, including the rather high-end (in terms of features) Generation NEX for $60 which plays both US and Japanese carts, and the simple but high-quality NeoFami, in both Famicom and NES flavors, for $30.

thanks for the info

I might pick up one because my nes died on me 7 years ago and I have 55 games for it.

The Generation NEX seems to be a NES-on-a-Chip design, so it has a lot of compatability issues.

I remember seeing the reports and a long thread at a NES dev community... Paradous or something.
