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.

Also the fact that it has HDMI out unlike most of them. And the fact that the controllers are useful outside of that particular box given that the thing uses Classic Controller connectors. It's fair to assume that if Nintendo was to make a SNES box they'd use the CC connector again. Assuming the NX keeps the VC you can only assume that we'll still be able to use WiiMotes and Classic Controllers on that to. Not to mention the Classic Controllers that people who owned a Wii no doubt collected.

If the NX is fully backwards compatible, but lacks cartridge ports, this would be a good way to provide access to weirdly-shaped games (GBA, SNES, GCN).

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

I wish they'll sell it with the dogbone controllers instead. I know the original controller design is iconic, but the remodels were so much more comfortable. It's one of my all-time favorite controller designs to this day.

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.

I am getting it to have a cheap gaming option in another room

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

the ideal christmas present for my dad, who really liked the NES games but won't buy a WiiU to play them again.

bit sad that there is no cartridge slot to play all my old NES games again, like Tecmo Wrestling and Galaxy 5000 though. maybe with the mini 2.0?
And crossing my fingers very hard for a mini SNES with Secret of Mana/Evermore, Lufia, and all those other RPG classics!

I guess it doesn't have the desired cartridge slot because, as usual with VC, the emulator(s) are fine tuned for the included games, and using it for other games may cause less optimal results.

Maybe.

Or maybe they simply want you to buy the different versions with different names they'll definitely offer later.

Welp, it's $80 in Canada... but I'm not surprised. No different then a XBOX One or PS4 game. Still want it.

That is a good list.

No Dragon Warrior?!?! REALLY??? That is a total deal breaker! I won't buy it without Dragon Warrior.

@Meowpheel Because this NES is just a stocking filler. I don't see anything collectable about it

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I have seven versions of The Legend of Zelda. They are on the following formats:

  • Nintendo Entertainment System (original gold cartridge)
  • Gameboy (Classic NES Series)
  • Gamecube (The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition)
  • Gamecube (Animal Crossing: Population Growing! -unlocked using Action Replay)
  • Wii Virtual Console
  • Wii U Virtual Console
  • 3DS Virtual Console

You best believe I'll be getting this NES Classic Edition. Can't have enough copies of the original NES masterpiece. It is, after all, my favorite video game of all time!
