It looks like the classic NES is sold out at Amazon and bestbuy.com

I got this as a birthday gift yesterday and I think my 17 year daughter likes it more than I do I haven't played most of these games in years. I'm very rusty.

This is pretty hilarious (didn't see a SNES classic thread at a glance).

Assume it is a cart dumper /Hachki all in one gadget.

Saw a ton of these at the local Target the other day (no SNES-minis though).

Well, it says it can also load ROMs from the USB, so not sure they'd release a separate device.

Another option would be to use a pin adapter for the cartridge slot, since it's just dumping data. Something like the adapters for the Retrode.

If you're going to to be loading your own ROMs from USB anyways, the cart feature is useless.

The packaging for the European NES controllers looks like it came from the 80's compared to the US version.

That lower design is the style they used when they relaunched the NES in that mini top-loading design in the 90s or so.

I saw a bunch of these and the SNES minis in one of my local GameStop’s the other day.

I wonder why the controller is harder to find compared to the console?

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

I went ahead and bought another NES Classic. When they first came out, I had a friend with three kids and all they wanted for Christmas that year was an NES Classic. He said he went everywhere, looked online and could never find one.

So I sold him mine at face value so his children would get the one thing they wanted most. I have been meaning to pick up another one but have never gotten around to it. I saw that one this morning and got the last one they had.

The Gamestop I bought this one from had plenty of extra controllers for sale. I guess it varies from store to store.

There likely was a higher-than-normal demand for the controllers at re-release, since there were a lot of existing owners from the first release that wanted controllers. Now that they've got the controllers they were waiting for, the demand has probably leveled out.
