The NES Classic Edition is apparently one of the more reminiscent consoles to date, especially with the newest generation of hardware continuously surfacing. However, one slight roadblock seems to be getting in the way in the form of Retro Freak.

As the name implies, Retro Freak patronizes the older generation of gaming hardware, and while this may be a good thing, the NES Classic Edition is not to be set aside either. Both have their offerings, which at this point deserves a thorough comparison.

According to recent reports, the NES Classic Edition otherwise known as the Nintendo Entertainment System is something many fans leaped into as soon as they heard about it. The re-made version is somewhat smaller, filled with a heap of titles along with it-though this may also be a flaw point for the said console.

It can be recalled that the remake of the 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System comes with traditional games such as "Donkey Kong," a few "Mario" titles, "Final Fantasy" and "The Legend of Zelda" respectively. However, it is limited to the aforementioned only and cannot be expanded upon. Nonetheless, most of the feedback surrounding the NES Classic Edition were considerably positive-noting the crisper texture on a new television screen.

Other reports say that the Retro Freak dons quite the resume as well. Compared to the NES Classic Edition, the said hardware does not come with a boundary as to what they can add to the mix. It is said to be as simple as putting an old cartridge in and it is all set. Moreover, the Retro Freak offers compatibility to FamiCom, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, SNES and more.

Lastly, the Retro Freak holds the advantage in the sense that the cartridge games can be transferred to an SD Card for further storage. Favoring the NES Classic Edition, the ease in reaching the games made for the hardware is more than appealing. That being said, each of the consoles have their own share of goodness within them, though it still lands on how the fans would see and choose so.
