Not sure if you guys remember when @jeff & @danryckert where showing off the Nintendo Classic, Jeff kept saying something was off about the sound. Well turns out he was right, which is pretty amazing that he could actually remember how those old games sounded like. DigitalFoundry just did a review of it and in that video they touch on this particular issue.
So turns out Jeff was right
Jeff definitely has a lot of knowledge about games and is excellent at being able to pick up small differences very well. That being said, I wouldn't assume that he remembered how those old games sounded from the old days. After all he is constantly holding and/or playing retro stuff so for all we know he was playing a real NES just a few hours before he messed around with the Mini.
Sometimes I think that Jeff doesn't experience time like the rest of us, that's how he is always just a few days away from holding any given video game item, no matter how old or obscure.
@adequatelyprepared: Absolutely. When it comes to scrutiny of video games via proper scientific method, Digital Foundry is second only to Ranking Of Fighters.
Clearly, Nintendo allowed for a bit of wiggle room in emulation precision while they prioritised what really mattered: accurate recreation of useless Famicom/Super Famicom controller cable length.
