    Excellent lineup of games and it includes Star Fox 2 which has never been released. Also comes with two controllers.

    I won't either.

    However, if I get my hands on it, I'm looking forward to Donkey Kong Country, Street Fighter® II Turbo and Super Mario World from that list.

    Surprisingly only played 13 of those games (beating 11 of them). If I can snag one of these babies I will...

    I'll pre-order MANY of them.

    I'm not a reseller, but...in case it affects the price of certain games (I have a HUGE collection of retro games) I can MORE than make up for the change by...reselling.

    Oh the horror of resellers!

    Lastly, I don't think the price of those actual games will decrease, apart from Starfox 2...maybe.

    Emulating NES games = eeeeasy.

    Emulating SNES games = not so much.

    Relatively speaking.

    You can get it on Amazon. So long as you're willing to pay around US$ 220.

    Well as they are no longer being made without paying premium you likely won't.

    Small update, Nintendo said the cords on the controllers will be 5ft long and they're planning on increasing the number of units produced from the NES Classic.

    I don't like that it will cost more than the NES classic and come with fewer games.

    I love my NES classic, but I'm less sold on this, largely because I never had a SNES so this doesn't really have any nostalgia factor for me.

    With emulators, I don't know how these are such hot items. I mean, you can get the controllers and everything. I have 4 N64 usb controllers, they work great.

    Not sure when's the last time you emulated anything, but literally every SNES game has been emulated and to perfection. Really have no idea what you're talking about.

    Do you realize how many people don't even know about emulators, and even some of the people that do, have no desire to set anything up for themselves.

    Convenience sells.
