Greetings,
Today I went to a Chinese store, and bought this console for 10EUR.

It came with a cart with some games (about 9), and they are all nes games.
Super Mario, Track and Field, Duck Hunt. The sound is also accurate with the original Nes sound chip.
So, this is a NES clone right? My question: Would it run a NES or Famicom game? It has so little circuits and components on it...
Does anyone have any info on this type of consoles?
Cheers

Yeah, these NES-on-a-chip clones are getting pretty common and cheap. They vary in quality, but most of them should run most games okay. From the cart design I'd say that's actually a Famicom clone, but I'm not 100% sure; is it a 60-pin or 72-pin connector?

Hi there.
I just opened a cart. This is what is inside:

This cart has 4 games:
- Mahjong, Chinese Checkers, 1943 and Super Mario

It has 30 connectors on each side.
I don't have (and don't know anyone here) with a Famicom, but they look like the same type of cart.

Yep, 60 pins is a Famicom cart, so you'll need a NES->Famicom adapter to run NES carts on it. On the bright side, that opens up some fun possibilities like Akumajou Densetsu (the nice version of Castlevania III) and other Famicom games that were either not released or cut down for foreign release. Nice find!
