FC Twin: Play NES and SNES on One Console

Saw this on Digg.com today. It's a system that plays both NES and SNES games, which I think would come in as a handy replacement to the stacks of NES consoles that so stubbornly refuse to let most games load. Currently they're being sold here, or you can bid for one on eBay.

From Wikipedia:
The FC Twin Video Game System is a Famiclone that can play NES and SNES games. It was released after the patents on both systems expired, making the console legal. It has had very good reception.

From the Assembler Forums:
"It's a 2 in 1 NES/SNES clone that's about the size of a mini-SNES called the FC Twin. The best part? American cart slot, meaning NO MORE CONVERTER! It also takes original SNES controllers and special accessories, such as the Baseball bat for Super Batter Up (it actually works pretty well). Worst part? I'm pretty sure the NES is a NOAC and it doesn't take standard NES controllers, meaning no Duck Hunt or any other Zapper games."
