Re: NES Classic Edition (30 games; 60 bucks; 11/11/2016)

Dumb. I'd love to see NES wrestling, track and field, etc and would gladly pay double for this system if it was all inclusive.
I agree. Rights, smights....Nintendo is missing the boat to understanding what they really have. Will people buy this? ABSOLUTELY. Probably in droves, because of the Nintendo name. But they could set themselves up for a while if they just went beyond the tiny little box. Think about it...add the Virtual Console service, include wifi, open it up to DEVELOPERS. I get that its Nintendo, this is nothing new, but think about the implications. But people will buy their little console and play it for 3-6 months just like the Wii and then it will collect dust. Guaranteed.
