      I wonder how this will affect the retro collector’s market.

      I’ve own some GBC and GBA Zelda games and want to play them on an Analogue Pocket when it arrives.

        About as much as people downloading ROMs did while the hardware was still being sold.

          That was actually a major problem in the GBA era. The flashcarts got cheap while it was still very much viable.

            I know, but that doesn't seem to affect today's collector market. :)

        That reminds me that I have an old metal gear solid game for GBC that I think is worth some money.

        I doubt it will. These games are available with a super simple search already.

          Plus you've got the scammers trying to hawk certification and all the other nonsense, trying to sell retro games as a fucking investment.

          So glad I mostly got the stuff I wanted years ago.

      I'd like to add that Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 has all of the e-Reader levels and some of them are hard as hell.

      Excited to play Wario Land 4 on this. I have an Analogue Pocket with my original cartridge, but man, that SWOLED screen is the best way I've played these games. They look so fucking good and the filters are actually great

      The expansion pack is quite expensive considering the amount of games given on the classic emulators. Will have to wait for more updates in the future. For now I'll gladly use the VisualBoyAdvance (https://visualboyadvance.org/) and Project64 (https://www.pj64-emu.com/) emulator for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 titles respectively.
