    I bought 2 SNES->USB converter at http://retrousb.com/ , and 2 $5 (us) clone of a SNES controller at Games ‘n More. I have played all of FF3 (in US), and can play Street Fighter 2 with friends again! I can output to TV and make the experience that much better!

    Good times…

    In many cases, playing an emulated game can be even better than playing it on the original hardware. Some advantages…
    Higher-res / Interpolated graphics
    Fast Forward
    Save and Load State
    And of course, you can usually find a USB adapter for any kind of game controller. Fun fun!
