being collecting toku,pr,ss,kr etc I also like to collect old gaming systems

now of course you know the Super famicom is the Japanese SNES this person was offering me a good bundle of 19 games for $100+shipping,most of the games in this bundle ever saw a u.s Release so I was wondering if it a good price? or I can just go to ask middleman proxy,etc to get the system with games for a lot cheaper?

now I could get an SNES and buy a converter for it but I just like the way the system looks then it American counterpart. and you guys in Europe are pretty lucky to get that design as the super famicom

so is it worth for $100 with that bundle?

Depends on how much the games are worth and stuff, but from what I've heard a SuFami is really cheap, but shipping is a bit. You could go to Famicomworld.com and ask there and probably get a better price than you will elsewhere.

Also, you don't need an adapter to play SFC games on an American system, just clip the tabs in the cartridge slot.

I guess your right am going to ask him for the games only and see how much he wants it.

Clipping the tabs is problematic at best. There are really nice converters.

Are you looking to get Sentai and Rider games for it? They're pretty rare nowadays and will probably set you back quite a large amount of dollar each cartridge.

If he plans on getting the Carranger game, he'd also have to invest in the Sufami Turbo cartridge. I've seen them pop up sometimes, but I've never seen the Carranger game before.

The Super Famicom is a bloody kick arse console!! I have one, AND a PAL SNES and I'm proud of it, but personally I wouldn't pay $100 for it. I'm sure there are cheaper deals loads of places, EBay, etc...

For a cheaper alternative though I'd go to your nearest pawn shop / thrift store and find yourself an American standard SNES. Sure they might not look pretty but in terms of convinience they're awesome. They can be able to play Japanese SFC games perfectly, once those 2 plastic tabs have been cut off. You're just a GameBit and a Dremel away from Super Famicom goodness.

Plus if you had the artistic talent you could customize your SNES to make it look bad ass, if you don't like the standard look.

Of all the clones, I've heard better things about that one than most. It has a bit better compatibility with games, at least on the NES side.

It's just another option that a person can take. It's fairly common knowledge that the compatibility isn't 100% but the convenience of having a machine that can play NES and SNES games is appealing to some folks.

That said, incorrect audio is a dealbreaker for me.
