$200 each with shipping being around $40

These are FPGA (emulate the hardware for SNES and Sega Genesis) consoles able to play original cartridges or be modded to play roms off of an SD Card.

I searched the forums and couldn't find an analogue thread so I apologize if there is a different place to post this information.

Be aware that you will not receive anything until the end of 2023 most likely as Analogue is extremely slow with manufacturing and shipping.

Also be aware that the Analogue pocket can now run SNES and Genesis games so that product plus the dock might be a better value if you don't intend to use original cartridges.

Eh I think these will hold their value better. Pocket + dock is almost 3/4 the price of buying both systems, and currently no way to use original SNES/Genesis controllers on the pocket dock. I have all 3 but got the consoles used on eBay for way under retail price.

Does the analogue pocket only handle game boy games? Or can it also play GBA games too?

GB, GBC, GBA out of the box. Adapters available for other handheld systems.

Those are noice ... but wow, $200 (plus shipping) for an snes or genesis clone seems steep.

Like the other person said, they'll be adapters for Cartridges, but you can also download cores for other consoles being made by fans if you dont want to use cartridges

How long will this be up?

Do you need an adapter to run SNES games? I'm confused because the product details says it just plays GB, GBC and GBA.

The Pocket only plays ROMs of SNES games.

Oh, I see... still, super tempting. I would love to be able to GB series games on a bigger screen.

Could get the Super Game Boy + Super Nt. I have that combo too.

I have the Mega SG and let me tell you it works great. Everdrive and homebrew and the games look damn good on a modern TV

Went through and grabbed a Super Nt, Mega Sg and the GG adapter. Can’t wait to use these!

They haven't indicated a specific date the preorders will close but they fulfill orders based on time so if you do want it then ordering earlier is better given the long delay from order to delivery (over a year). For instance, I am still waiting for my Analogue Pocket that I ordered in December 2021. Granted, they did indicate that I wouldn't get it until 2023 before I ordered so I knew what I was getting into by ordering it. On the positive side, they did recently announce that they were ahead of schedule on Pocket orders so I might get mine sooner.
