    Mini SNES

    https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...-the-mini-snes

    Mildly excited to see this, as I recently bade farewell to my broken SNES. For me this was probably the earliest console with a significant number of games I might still enjoy today, so as long as it's reasonably priced over here (which iirc the mini NES was), it could be a cheaper and more reliable alternative to buying second-hand again.

    Now watch as they once again only make 50 of them and they all get snatched up and sold on Ebay at a 300% markup.

    Yeah not likely us mortals will get a chance to buy these. Also considering how.many good games on the snes there are i'm kind of underwhelmed how many you get here.

    I would be tempted but yeah i guess I'll just stick with emulation or see if we still got one in the loft.

    Already have 2 on the way. Looking forward to hacking it and sticking Chrono Trigger on there along with all the other games.

    Looking forward to the mini WiiU.
    I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way

    In case of forum degradation pull cord.

    Yep. I would definitely pre-order one of these and buy it from Nintendo at the designated price.

    But Nintendo are total shits and the chances of them allowing me to do this are clearly 0%.

    They would much rather watch people get gouged. I literally have no explanation for this behaviour. I've tried to look at it from any number of angles, but there is literally no rational, economic or IP-based reasoning that leads to Nintendo's position. Thus it must be that Nintendo are either shits, or, more likely institutionally incompetent.

    Given they've been out of stock since before anyone was allowed to buy them, that's impressive.

    Yeah I had Nintendo set up to email me when you could start buying them, clicked in immediately after getting the email, they were already out of stock.

    Which is what I'm talking about re: Nintendo being incompetent/shits.

    The Pre-orders will go up again when they have a better understanding of the launch numbers.

    I still got an original working one somewhere (the SNES was the one that had Turok right?), maybe at a younger brothers house, or my mum's. It was a great machine for the day :)

    If they continue the trend, then at some points we're getting the Virtual Boy Classic, and then Nintendo will swear off of VR forever. Again.

    My mum wouldn't let me have one since I already had the Amiga, but now she's gone and I (hopefully) have 2 on the way. I WIN!

    Kind of wish they would put out a version of the super gun for this classic version, that bazooka thing was stupid, I loved it.

    Do you think that they might go for a re-release of the N64 at some point?

    Oh the N64 classic has to be on the cards for next year. Only problem being the early full 3d games have aged far worse than their pixel based cousins of the 16bit era.

    That's true - it's the console I have the best/most memories of though.

    If nintendo just posted a few hundred of them on ebay themselves, they'd clean up.

    I was confused about why it had Final Fantasy 3 on it instead of something newer like FF6. Then I remembered FF6 is FF3 in the US, right?

    It's a pretty cool list of games... even if a a bit small.
