I would personally prefer more games to a bigger screen. Six games is comparable to Arcade1Up's countercades but historically Evercade has done better than them.

In theory, can't you just stick in two carts and double the capacity?

 

I've been tempted to get one of the Super Pockets if I find one on discount, if only to officially have access to Evercade carts.  The only real problem I still have is that while I sort of like the CONCEPT of older games being made available in compilations, I don't really like the price per game of Evercade releases, and I've seen little to no evidence they'd ever go on sale...

The built-in games literally don't matter beyond choosing which edition you want. It can play over 500 games and counting via the cartridge ports and free games of the month.

I have to disagree here. While I'm not saying you have to be insane like me and buy every single cartridge release ever, paying roughly $20 - $25 per cartridge with 2 to 20 games per (not counting unlockables when using two cartridges)), seems pretty darn reasonable to me, and is what makes it possible to purchase every single release. I keep an up-to-date list of games here to give some perspective: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ctMo55yqSEHAIQYLdvQsK8iUXBtR5ck6ph6kzBxj_ak/

They are definitely going to make and sell them,though the price is unknown. 

I'd probably need at least 2 and maybe 3 for them to look right in my mini arcade. 

And I'd have to expand it also...

That's awesome!

 

Did you find a way to make it smell like old carpet and cigarette smoke to fully capture the authenticity?

$20 for 15-20 games is my preferred price, and yes, some of the compilations do have that many... except those are, most often, the compilations of titles that have already been released in packages elsewhere for much better prices.  If I'm only trying to buy "new" (to me) old stuff, the more esoteric titles aren't always so favorably bundled... The Lynx bundles might have been nice, but they are out of print.

 

I might grab some eventually, but it will be more so that I can "officially" own a legal copy of something as opposed to playing it on a device.  (Unless I snag a cheap one of those Super Pockets some time...)

I was cleaning and found a MyArcade Data East Mini Player in my closet -- it was meant to be a Christmas gift, but never ended up being given away...

 

Were these the things that could be easily modified into fun little mini retro players, or is that wrong?  It looks like it has 34 arcade titles...

Well and enough of them are 1-3 games for $20 too if I remember right.

 

The only thing I think that could get me into an evercade again with the choices is that Capcom handheld with the core titles, from there I could see grabbing a few select carts like the Renovation one i never could source due to their crappy supply issues.  I did like the Namco carts, but because of childish licensing shenanigans they won't work, and the Technos aren't too enticing.  The Lynx I had them but after the initial ownership the fun ran dry real fast since they were somewhat B-tier pickings due to licensing which makes sense there.  I think some of the direct arcade vs console packs might be alright, but I long stopped paying close attention around the Renovation cart issue.
