I'm all alone, dealing with my broken heart. Why I have feelings if they feel so bad. All seems so dark, will I ever see light?

You could have gotten an NTSC monitor and system on ebay, that would have been cheaper. Heck, I saw a tiny (1.8") pocket TV for $30 once (about $40AUD)

Also, for those too lazy to do a conversion, $165AUD is about $120 USD.

First off im in australia and buying a NTSC monitor and system just wont work. I need to play PAL games and buying adapters or making an adapter is a real mess for most systems.

Not all sms games are compatiable same with atari.

snes you need an adapter or disable the lockout chip but its still a hassle.

and come on 1.8" LCD???? thats not big enough and by the time i pay for shipping and customs if it doesnt get through its not worth it plus i can't buy from USA

i just can't use usa stuff here.

Yeah, I forgot about the games... they have bigger screens around here, I was just showing how cheap they get. As for customs, all you gotta do is label it as a "gift," after all, it is (or was) your birthday :wink:
