Analogue Interactive is creating an aluminum NES console for the ultimate retro experience

With a library of close to 2000 titles the Nintendo Entertainment System is one of the most iconic video game consoles to date. Analogue Interactive is looking to bring this iconic video game console back like never before. Since the discontinuation of the original NES in March of 1994, the NES has been cloned and re-released by many third party manufacturers looking to cash in on the retro nostalgia.  But, Analogue Int. isn't looking to release another clone, but instead is looking to produce one of the finest NES experiences with the release of the Analogue Nt. 

The Analogue Nt is a NES console built "around the heart and brain of the original." The Nt features a casing that is machined from a solid piece of aircraft grade aluminum, two top loading slots that will support the NES and Famicon (Japanese NES) game cartridges, and 4 controller ports. Analogue Int. also claims that this will not be an emulation console. Although details are scarce at this point, Analogue Int. promises it will have more information to share that will "blow everyone away" at the end of March.

Like most of Analogue Int. products the Analogue Nt will be available to order direct from the company's website.

That had better mean a 100% hardware clone, and not just an emulator-on-a-chip like other retro console clones. They say as much but I'd really like to see more details about their solution. Would also be nice if it has RGB output like the NES w/VS Duckhunt PPU installed.

...unless this hunk is a hardware clone with RGB output, most TVs now can't do 240p properly, they just display it in 480i which has a horrible effect whenever something is blinking every other frame or when the image scrolls. Here's one example where the yellow beam is supposed to be blinking, instead it just looks like every other scanline is drawn in a 480i image: http://i52.tinypic.com/33otced.jpg (not on NES but still a 240p image being displayed in 480i on an LCD TV).

It's easy to get scart-to-component cables for other systems, but not the NES since it lacked RGB output unless you bought an expensive VS Duckhunt PPU and modded the console with it.

Not a emulation console? Mrmm, /me is very curious...

Curious of what? Sounds just like they're using NES boards they buy on ebay or flea markets. "The console features four-player support and is an RGB NES,"

What about the NES cartridges... are they going to sale it as well? I do not have any available and they don't sell it on GameStop.

According to Polygon, Analogue is looking to possibly put together packages with games.

That will be great.

Oh, that's pretty cool. I just moved and emptied my storage unit and found my Sega Genesis with the Master System converter thing and all my master system games. Was curious to hook it up!

You can get A/V to Composite/SCART adapters from ebay that work pretty well on a modern TV. Assuming you have a Genesis version with the A/V socket though.
