I have been seeing a lot of brand new NEO Famicom systems for sale on Ebay lately. They are top loading and come with a converter to play U.S. release NES games and two controllers and AV cables. They look pretty cool and are very compact about the size of 5 CD cases stacked together, I been thinking about picking one up.
Depends, I have seen them sell on ebay for between $30 and $60 including shipping. I haven't gotten one yet but I did email a few people that won them on Ebay and they say they work great.
