Hello, I'd like to share with you an awfully neglected and unknown piece of video gaming history. First and foremost, I ought to delineate its sheer scarcity and rarity. It's the Chips do Brasil's Super Prosystem 16, a 16 bits SNES clone released in 1994 solely in Brazil. Regarding its quality, I can confidently argue it has the same image and audio fidelity as an original SNES, given that I'm able to compare it side by side with a one chip SNES. Since I play them both with composite video, I'm frankly not capable of perceiving any difference whatsoever between the clone and the original hardware. Its composite video quality is much better than my Mega drive's (as with any SNES). Its colors are vibrant and vivid and the picture is sharp and defined. Its has a rather peculiar design. The official Nintendo licensed company, Playtronic, sold the USA version of the SNES in Brazil, so Chips do Brasil adopted the Japanense/European design, with some minor differences. As it can be noted, the cartridge slot is actually square instead of being oval around the edges like the original design, so it can actually fit cartridges from any region without any physical restrictions. The European SNES would require a mod to do so. Another interesting aspect of its design is its standard video input which does not require the SNES proprietary cable. It also has a mono or stereo switch on the back. Here's a picture of the Super Prosystem 16 with a third-party Dynacom TPC-5 controller. Its resemblance to the mega drive is quite striking. As a matter of fact, I ordered a Chips do Brasil Snes controller which looks like a 6 button genesis controller. I don't have the original Prosystem controller that came packed with the console, but it has an entirely different design and it supports turbo for every individual button. Here's pictures of its internal components. I'm not really tech savvy so there's not much I can say about it other than my personal and unreliable opinion. To me, the PCB looks quite sturdy and well built. It is designed to lock the cartridge when turned on. In this picture, the Super Prosystem is playing Lamborghini American Challenge in composite video. I'm not sure if it can be perceived by the photo, but the picture looks great and to me it's on par with my one chip SNES. AS TO ITS HISTORY AND RARITY, there are many things to say. It was released in 1994 to compete with the original hardware and, as a matter of fact, it would be quite a fierce challenge for Nintendo and its licensed company. It had a considerably lower price and it came packed with two turbo controllers, besides natively supporting PAL-M and accepting cartridges from any region. Nonetheless, in the very same year of its release, Tectoy and Playtronic promoted a successful legal breakdown against piracy which forced the Super Prosystem 16 to be prematurely pulled out of stores and possibly destroyed by the authorities. This is the key factor for its rarity. I've seen the serial number of 3 different Super Prosystem 16 and the highest S/N was around 2750. Mine is in the following picture: I deem it a very interesting piece of video gaming history, a tragic one at that, as I've never seen another real Hardware SNES clone from its time. I consider it to be unique in the entire world. A mystery to me is where it was manufactured. I actually think it is unlikely to have been produced in China because otherwise there would be many other SNES clones. Nonetheless, there are counterfeit SNES, but other than the Super Prosystem 16, I've never seen any other independent SNES clone.
