    The NES classic is already dead. I made a retro pi instead of getting one of these, but I considered it and sad to see it already gone. It was a neat idea.

    Did any of you manage to get one of these?

    My dad said he saw it available at best buy online, said he tried to add to cart but there was a error, then he said he could add it to cart, but then after that he said it wouldn't let him check out

    Ah... Nothing like the good ol' classics. I salute you, NES! Back when video games brought genuine happiness and didn't make you rip out your hair.

    Nintendo always makes the weird decisions.
    always.

    I kinda considered buying one just for the novelty of it, but they couldn't be found anywhere around here when they came out. About 2-3 weeks later the price went up to something like $100 or something absurd like that. I'm fairly convinced that Nintendo does this kind of shit just to fuck with people.

    I still have an SNES with Super Metroid somewhere in the pile of other old crap in my basement. I never saw the NES Classic in stores, but I probably wouldn't have even considered it. I realize it's retro, and probably a novelty buy; but c'mon. The SNES was just better

    I have an NES, SNES, and N64. My dad has them in the house. My favorite is the SNES, some really good games on there.

    Nintendo are fucking masters at manipulating supply and demand (I.E.: Amiibo releases). This didn't really surprise me.
