The NES is coming back, albeit a mini NES
Nintendo is launching a minature NES this holiday
awesome! i was just about to start a thread about this...way to beat me to it semi. pretty cool idea. kinda odd after all these years of nintendo pushing their virtual console that they out of nowhere drop this news but who cares, its cool. with 30 really solid games included i may have to pick this up.
Super Mario Bros
The Legend of Zelda
Are all worth the $60
I need this!
I think you can get them for $5 each on the Nintendo store.
I have Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros, & Legend of Zelda on my 3DS. I'd rather have something you can play on a larger screen & not have to buy a wii
I have a Wii and a Wii U hooked up to a 65" screen. And no open HDMI inputs.
just the look of the hardware is probably worth the $60 to me. but the big question is will they use the same emulation tech with this that they use for NES games on the wii and wii u. on the 3ds they look fine with that small, low res screen, but on a home television the wii and wii u versions of nes games look very compressed. there are plenty of somewhat illegal, free emulators that look WAY better and i hope this mini NES uses something more like them.
It does look cool. I can't imagine how one emulator could make them look better than any other. They are low resolution games. They should look like crap, like they always have.

I already want one, plus I been getting back into my old retro video games. I found couple stores in Phoenix that sells nothing but old classic videos for the NES, SNES, N64, Atari and whatever console. I have some games listed above and quite a few I can't find. Now this should almost complete my NES collection.
I never has a Super NES or Game Cube.
I had a Nintendo 64 with Mario Cart & Super Mario World 64. Those games were fun
I wish, I still has had my old collection.
Everybody seems to want one of these. I hope they make enough of them to go around for the holiday season.
I'm so busy playing big, open world modern games, why would I waste time going back to that. I already beat most of those games when I was a kid.
I'm playing Fallout 4 on PS4 right now.
You could say the same thing about your dingus. Do you waste time going back to that?
the japanese original nes, the family computer aka the famicom is also getting a mini and it looks awesome!
the real difference is btw/the snes and the super famicom. pretty much everyone agrees that the super famicom was a much better look. only the americas got the grey and purple.
