    What are the chances of getting a mint condition SNES in today's times?

    I never owned one back in the day when they were new and I am really after a break from blockbuster PS3 games and fancy a bit of retro.

    I have seen some on eBay and they all looked very well used and suffer from yellowing and damaged cartridges.

    It was released in 1990 so I understand age is against me but there must be someone who was OCD and kept theirs in perfect condition :icecream1

    Can anyone help me locate one?

    That's gonna be tough to find my friend. Better to download a SNES emulator online and just download the games.

    Just get a NES Top Loader, they don't have the issues with having to constantly clean dust off the cartridges.

    I love the idea of actually having the consoles but.....I'm with aStroke on this one. I was soooooo happy when I finally got media center to handle my emulators and games properly.
