FYI Not for Mega or 168 Arduinos November 3, 2010
Reviewer: John Cabrer from Fullerton, CA United States  
I'm an early adopter of the Video Game Shield.  Unfortunately, there was no specific mention of compatability (there may be now) with Arduino Mega, and earlier DueMillanove 168 boards when I bought it, otherwise I would give it a 5 instead of a 3.

With the mega, it's the pin wiring, and SPI(?) differences that make it not work.  Unfortunately for me, I only have the 168 and Mega Arduinos :^(

On the bright side, It goes together very easily. and should give no problems provided you have the right platform.
