I wouldn't know—I've never set foot in Retro Gamer Towers.

Finding a cheap console is just the start of the problem. Unless you get a Wildcard you're going to burn through a lot of cash to build up a decent collection. Although I have noticed Super Famicom games are generaly much cheaper.
Perhaps I should rephrase that, I have 2 SNES, one boxed and a wildcard, can't remember which one though!

Go the modded original xbox route I did and love it, all those games to play but so little time, the only downside is using an Xbox pad but you do get used to it, besides the US Snes is pig ugly to many straigh lines and corners plus the purple colour. The Pal/Jap snes/famicom are far better looking lumps of gaming goodness.
Granted you can't beat having the original console/carts but once your playing the game who cares what it's played on, my vote is firmly in the flashed original Xbox corner plus it will open a whole lot of other doors for other retro systems 8)
I had a US Snes back in the day with a 16meg Wild Card and know what i would prefer having now, it's that big ugly Xbox sat ontop of my Subwoofer with about thirty thousand games on the harddrive, it's simply a retro gamers paradise imo :wink:

Been playing on the Xbox today and it's just not the same. You put no effort into the games due to having so many to play, the filters aren't very nice and the pad is censored to use.

I was planning this route, but after playing on Nakamura's SNES the other night, I'm going back to the original deal.

How do you guys store loose SNES carts? There are dust covers on ebay, but they appear to fit NTSC carts only.

I've heard of people using VHS video and audio cassette storage boxes and shelf units. Not sure which is the closest fit, but they should be pretty cheap in charity shops and car boot sales. I know I'll be looking that way when I start to collect more loose carts.

You can only properly play SNES games using a SNES pad
