Of course Nintendo's UK store. Why did I have to be born in a country with microsoft as the most popular thing since sliced bread!? You can't complain about Nintendo not making a good American store when there are millions of haters who would make it impossible. >.<
Nice. Pre-ordered the one with the 8-bit Mario Plush.
This is further proof that the UK Official Store is the best place to buy Nintendo stuff, period.
Already order .
The Nes bag tempts me. I presume it's meant to be used to transport the Nes?
Nope. I've no urge to play crap games.
@RainbowGazelle I don't think they will miss your purchase (or mine for that matter). It's going to sell silly amounts.
@RainbowGazelle Best games ever!
I don't have a nes in my collection so I'll buy one but I'm not on any rush TBH. It's really not something I'd play much. I already have most of the classics on the vc!
Not really tempeted by the freebies to be honest. I might just keep the Amazon pre order in the hope I may get it cheaper
I'm on the edge of getting this, does anybody have a recommendation?
Damn you Nintendo of America! Where are the goods?
I got my preorder in earlier today for the set with the Mario plush and an extra controller.
It's REALLY stupid and annoying, as well as being a sneaky hidden extra cost, that the UK version of this doesn't come with a power adaptor.
@buildz it sure is. I really wished intendo of America what do these fun things, they probably will but it will only be if you go in person to New York, I'm sorry I live in Texas and I plan on never setting foot in New York my entire life LOL
I definitely wouldn't preorder a device like this without knowing what the input lag and overall emulation is like. Those multi game Mega Drive units were terrible, and a lot of VC games have noticeably laggy controls. As pretty much all games included are side scrollers, this is kind of a big deal....
I've already pre-ordered with Amazon and Game, I really hope that neither screws up.I would like two: one to use and one to keep sealed. I pre-ordered a controller from Nintendo UK store,. I have pre-ordered 3 controllers from 3 different websites.
As I said in another post, I think Nintendo will probably release an official plug for this. If they don't game could and often do sell third party equipment.
@samuelvictor Nintendo charge at dispatch (usually three days before the release date).
I imagine the emulation will be good on this, it is a Nintendo product after all. even though its a cheap machine I cant imagine they'll release something below par.
@rjc-32 I was always under the impression that the lag on retro Vc/re-release games was kept the same as the original? ie - so players of the original would have the exact same experience!?!
Anybody know when NOA pre-orders will go live?? I've been looking but haven't seen anything yet.
@Pj1 I have pre-ordered two of these as well as I think that it may be a highly sought-after item eventually.
When this is released, my sealed version of this item is going in the storage area with my sealed Fire Emblem Fates: Special Edition.
@samuelvictor I hope you have managed to get the bundle with the 8-Bit Mario Plush as that has already sold out.
When preorders come to NOA, they better not be limited to NY
@tux_peng Knowing the lovely Nintendo of America and amiibo, they probably will be exclusive to Nintendo NY.
OMG woow I am so excited wooo!! can't wait! I'm following updates @ http://www.liovinci.com/i/nintendo-entertainment-system
