  1. Here’s the thing with the Mini Nes. It’s not meant for gamers. It’s is clearly marketed towards the group of people who have long ago gave up on gaming because of how overly complicated things have become. If you add things like wireless controllers and internet connectivity you increase your price point and price yourself right out of the market you are going for.

    Most of the people who care about that type of stuff have the games already in one version or another, but general fans will see a mini Nes on the self next to the checkout line at Target for $60 and buy it on impulse.

    I’m holding off on getting one because I fear they get mass produced too quickly and have a ton of problems that can be fixed.

    • no wireless I can see but internet connectivity to purchase new games for it would breat, but that means it’d need a storage system. A mini NES with everything powers said for $100 would be well worth the price to most classic-retro gamers.

      • An SD Card wouldn’t hurt it. They could fit small SSD drives in it if they wanted to. Should just made a $45 pack that came with the NES controller for the Wii-U and the 30 games for download to it instead. Or put these into the next console and had new NES.SNES.GameCube controllers and sold packs of these games on it.

    • This is what has me worried. What could be a cool idea nothing but a glorified novelty toy that is half as cool as it would have been if proper thought went into it.

  2. Honestly ths perfectly expresses my opinions on Flash moving forward

  3. get yer marvel outta my DC! bwa hahahahahahaha
