Definitely interested in this. Would be nice if there was a way of adding more games (maybe based on VC?).

I also like the Wii U-compatible controllers. Maybe if they make an SNES version, North America can finally get SNES controllers like the one EVERY OTHER REGION got via Club Nintendo.

I wonder if they'd make a Game Boy version...

EDIT: My only complaint (assuming additional games won't be sold) is the "gaps" in the available games. Castlvania 1 & 2 but not 3, only Ninja Gaiden 1, etc.

@DarthNocturnal Well, it only comes with 30 games, so the more franchises are represented, the better. The quesrion is whether you can buy more games or not. If this is a stand-alone VC machine, it could be great. But it seems it's just limited to NES games anyway.

...Are the games built-in? These gamer newbs better get the full experience that we older guys had to deal with. lol

Hooking up via RF if you didn't have A/V cables? Power bricks? Bent cartride reading pins? No thanks.

Maybe there's a cartridge slot of sorts under the flap? Assuming it can be opened, of course.

EDIT: On further examination, that flap seems to just be a well-done mold job.

I might get one to plug into my bedroom tv, since I don't have a game system in there

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

There's no point to this. Everybody here with an interest in retro games would have these games already on the Virtual Console or still on cartridge. So its just $60 for a plastic box and nothing more.

It is convenient for those that don't care about getting a Wii U or 3DS for the VC, and for those that the only choice of getting something from the VC is eshop cards.
For me, those cards are damn expensive, so if the mini NES is cheaper, it might be my best shot at those games.
My point is, there is a different story for each person. For some there might be a point.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

That's incredibly myopic. I have almost all of the games on it either through cart, VC or both, and i am definitely buying one. Have you not heard of the Atari Flashback systems? The Coleco Flashback? Intellivision Flashback? The Genesis plug-and-play systems? They are all aimed at both the retro collector/enthusiast, as well as the casual gamer interested in checking out some gaming history.

On cartridge compatibility — i won't be surprised if somewhere down the line (assuming this sells well, which it almost certainly will), we'll see additional versions with more/additional games, and eventually a NES-cartridge slot ... remember, it wasn't until after many different versions of the Genesis plug-and-play were released (and were successful) that they added a cartridge slot.

I suspect the only reason this might see more success than any of the other countless micro retro consoles is its shape and official nintendo branding.
