Can someone please post the name and links to some sites where I can get a new system that plays old nintendo and/or super nintendo carts? I know there is a system like that, but I can't remember what it is called.

I mean something that plays the carts that you plug into it. I think the revolution only plays downloaded old games. Is that correct? Maybe, I'm wrong? ...

I know of two systems , which can play the NES and SNES carts respectively:

Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) &
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)

Of course im sure you figured all this out already. There is no backward compatable system released by nintendo. Sony is the only one that has done that with much success, sega to a degree, (im not positive about the 360, but im going to say not)

I think you must be talking about the neo fami. They are not made by nintendo but play nes games (or famicon games if you get the japanease version). I consider getting one everytime my nes acts up, which is relatively often.

There's also a good number of Hong-kong knock-offs available through ebay. My roomate picked one up in the back hall of E3 last year and it works wonderfully. You can get one called the 'Yobo' with 2 controllers for ~30 bucks through ebay.

There's also the 'Messiah' unit which is similar but features wireless controllers and appears to possibly have higher build quality (which again, is not to say that we've experienced any problems with the Yobo.) Its a bit more expensive, but it might be worth it for the features.

There are a couple of one-chip NESes (such as the NEX) that have varying levels of compatibility with old NES games.

SNES, I dunno. The chipset was entirely custom so it's probably hard to rip off.
