    The original one is 9 volts ac meaning any adapter will work either DC or AC assuming it can supply enough power.

    I should have clarified

    "The original one is 9 volts ac meaning any adapter will work either 9vDC or 9vAC assuming it can supply enough milliamps."

    The biggest difference is the controller.
    Second is that you don't have to blow on your virtual console games to get them working ......

    In my opinion, on the original system is way more fun. The controller is awesome, and it just feels more... retro.

    Shouldn't be hard to find. If you buy one I suggest getting a rewritable cartridge to save the roms on.

    If you like joysticks try and get a "NES Advantage"

    Yes go forth and get one of Ebay (make sure it has loads of games)

    Then smell the retro goodness

    Battery backup games work fine with it.

    Edit: Wow I just found adapters that let you use Playstation controllers on the NES SNES and Genesis!

    Zaijin: How about a Game Axe or PokeFami instead?
