    I actually dig the SNES lineup more. Probably have to pass on this until they make the jump to Super.

    I like both libraries. I mean, Super NES obviously was a bigger leap. Saving was far more common. So, difficulty was adjusted. However, I still love me some Nintendo.

    Has a solid library.

    This comes with a really good roster of games, many of which I would love to revisit. I could see picking this up considering the price is right. However, I'd rather they just made them available as downloads on the system I do have (an XB1)

    I haven't owned a Nintendo system since the SNES. Aren't most of their classic games already available as downloads on their current system?

    That is pretty nice, but I'm going to pass on it. If you could somehow play the original cartridges too then there'd be no question, I'd buy 2 of them.

    I'll probably get it myself. I mean sure, you could go the emulator route, but I prefer to go official with games.

    Plus the NES was sort of before my time. It was the first game system I played on, but not the first I owned (Genesis followed closely by SNES).

    Same here. My parents bought my brother an NES for Christmas one year, but at the time I didn't care about gaming so I never really used it other than random Mario/Duck Hunt games. When the Genesis came out I was blown away by the Blast Processing!!!!

    I think I've decided to hold out on this one. Just to see if Nintendo either makes these classic games available as downloads for the Xbox, or if they come out with another model of the Classic NES that is designed to have a growing library.

    Did anyone ever get one? They (all the usual places) ran out of them before I could get one.

    I never saw one in the stores, but I did see a lot of the Sega Genesis one.

    Well, maybe I lucked out today. For some reason, today, I logged onto Amazon and saw they were selling the NES Classic Edition via a 3rd party for like $140 each. I was one of those several months back trying to get one on Amazon at like 2PM Pacific Time that ended up crashing the Amazon site because so many people were trying to order one at the same time. Back then I never did end up getting one and I was not going to pay some crazy amount for one.

    So, I thought what the heck and went to Gamestop Online and there they were available for sale with a Feb. 1st shipping date. There were several different bundles but I could purchase one for $79.99 which included a wireless controller that typically sells for $19.99 so I was paying $59.99 for the NES Classic Edition itself.

    So, I jumped on the bandwagon and ordered it along with an extra Nintendo NES Classic Edition controller plus extension cables and a carrying case. The order went through fine and I received a confirmation from Gamestop. I do have to pay shipping whereas Amazon is Free but what the heck.

    Anyway, I just went back to Gamestop Online again because I received a shipping confirmation on the carrying case and poof, every bundle that was there this morning is gone now. I guess they sold out again and I just lucked out logging onto the Gamestop site when I did.

    Update:
    I happened to do a search on the internet and found out that Gamestop sold out of the bundle I purchased within 30 mins. of posting it. I did not know Gamestop was getting these in again.

    These have been hacked pretty easy. Sounds like the programmers were expecting it based on some of the dev notes in the code. You can fit about 60 games on it if you flash it.

    I saw that last week. That actually makes me more likely to buy one. While I already have a Raspberry Pi and the GPD XD, I'm always a sucker for buying something else.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    I've got that iBuffalo Super Famicom controller and nice monitors at work and home, so no reason for a dedicated box. But it is nice looking.
