    Aside from it being illegal to do(emulator is legal, downloading game roms is not legal) , it's definitely the best way to play a bunch of retro games.

    Guess I should tell my son to use the Tor browser if he wants to download any more games.

    The new Super Nes version is supposed to be out for X-mas so I hope they make a lot
    more of these or the scalpers will hog them up again. The only reason I got lucky at Target
    was because they wouldn't sell the guy in front of me all 3 nes classics that they got in their shipment. I waited in line at Wallmart with a bunch of gamers when some guy dressed like manager ran thru the store at a back exit (this almost started a right but he ran away in
    his fancy suit and tie) before people realized that he faked out employees when he entered. he was able to buy 2 of the 3 nes classics that people lined up for at the main exit at 0700

    Although this is unlicensed, it's a pretty good alternative for those wanting some type of NES flashback. Has a good portion of the library too: https://sales.chubby3.com/products/c...o-game-console

    Edit: Not to impressed with the game list. Maybe the cartridge that's is included is better.

    There's a Chinese web site called DHGate that is suppose to have them for $84. I don't know how legit the systems are.

    Nintendo will make just enough of the Super NES to cause a buying-frenzy shortage. It's their MO.

    This looks like a pretty good clone of the NES classic mini. 500 games.

    If anyone had any ideas about getting a Super Nes Classic and didn't get one today, you might be out of luck. Nintendo might end up making enough, but I haven't had any luck with pre-orders today myself.

    Speaking to the Financial Times, Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime said that there would be "dramatically increased" production of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition console (to give the miniaturized 16-bit machine its full moniker).

    "I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites [...] You shouldn't pay more than $79.99," Fils-Aime said.

    I don't think they were willing to give specific numbers regarding production, but they did say they will produce more SNES Classics so as not to drive the scalper market like they did with NES Classic.

    Yeah, where did i hear that before? Oh, that's right from Nintendo last year when they pulled the exact same stunt.
