It was a
good idea, but the NES Satellite really wasn't very practical. First off,
there were only a handful of 4-player games it supported: Gauntlet, A
Nightmare On Elm St., and Super Spike V'Ball to name a few. The whole
"infrared" thing sounded nice, but just like with many other wireless
gadgets, it ate up your batteries quickly. The last thing you wanna do is fight
Freddy Krueger only to have your controller die out on you due to low
batteries. I don't think he'd wait for you to change them. At least the
thing came with turbo fire... then again so did almost every controller
accessory at the time.
You have chosen... wisely.
better decision was the NES Four Score. Sure, it wasn't wireless, but that
only meant you wouldn't have to constantly replace batteries for it. Plus,
I've heard the wireless stuff often had connection/accuracy problems,
which obviously wasn't a problem with the Four Score. Furthermore, it didn't
cost as much and still had the turbo feature as well. I guarantee that
you and your pals could make Freddy Krueger your bitch with this thing.
