All SNES games? Thats a bit of a stretch.

Comparing USED pricing now a days.. its more than a decent deal IMHO.

A NES, will run you $30+ on its own, min.
Some of the games.. the two zeldas will run you $20+ each usually.
The Mario, Kriby, etc.. the more popular ones.. $15+.
Your easily at $80 or more there, plus everything else thats on it.


If you dont like the price, then dont buy one.
But For someone who doesnt have the console or anything else to start with..

I'm betting all those games from that NES collection are available on virtual console. Even if I did like the price, I still wouldn't buy it unless they had all the NES games on there. That would have made it a great collectors item. This is not. I don't think it would cost too much space? 5-10 gigs for all NES games? It could even allow Nintendo to sell more pricey accessories, like the gun for duck hunt.

For those who decide to buy it, just so you're not caught off guard, I believe you also need to get a USB/wall plug adapter if you don't have one lying around as I believe it's powered via USB port.

Actually, I have the full NES rom set, and zipped it's 284 MB. Unzipped would be roughly 700 MB for over 2500 titles, some being different versions of the same game. But yeah, it would be quite small. My guess is striking a licensing deal with hundreds of companies for release is why it's impossible to have a full set.

That would be my guess. I think MOST of the ones that are on there, are DIRECT nintendo licensed from start to finish... vs many others are Nintendo + company X (capcom, say for megaman, etc)

Most of those games are available on virtual console (for the Wii U as least, not sure if all will work just on the WII virtual console).
They range from $5-10 each. But lets go at $5 each. $5 x 30 games, is $150.
Plus, REQUIRES that you then have a console (Wii or Wii U) to play them on.. which everyone doesn't necessarily own.

It does say that it comes with an AC adapter. (Even if it was USB powered.. now a days.. who doesnt have MANY AC USB plugs. I have about.. 12 spares at home between all the devices that have come with one over the years.)

And as an added bonus for anyone who MAY have a Wii or WiiU already.. the controlers can be used with the systems for virtual console games.



I dont think anyone is saying this is the be all end all thing... that OMG EVERYONE SHOULD GO OUT AND BUY IT!!!
If you dont like it, dont buy it.
But there are many people that this I think will be a great little device.

People who are not hardcore games, may not own newer systems, but want to relive some of those games, show their kids them, etc.
My wife was even like.. that would be a great little thing we can bring in the trailer for the TV there as it wont take up space really.

What's the deal with Nintendo and short supplying their new products? Is it a sales tactic? or is it incompetence?

People are scalping this NES classic for $250-$300 US! That's crazy! More importantly, who are buying these for that price?

Why not just buy a Wii U? You can buy most of the same games plus games from all other systems. Sorry this is just too old now for me. I shared for Nastolgia reasons on Facebook but won't be wasting my money on it.

I was at a Target in Orchard Park, NY yesterday and a woman was flipping out because they didn't have any in stock and how "Target was going to disappoint her son on Christmas morning"....LOL! Just looking at her age, and thinking how probably her son was born in the 1970's...

I also have a co-worker who bought one on eBay for US$400 on "Pre-order"...

I don't understand why anyone under 35 would want one of these, and those who grew up with one there are dozens of other ways to play these games.

Just wait until the Spring when Nintendo will over-produce these things and they will be $20.
