Do you have anything plugged in through your XB1S?

And is there a reason you have both a Roku and an Android media box? Personally, I use by XB1S for nearly all streaming apps.

Target and Toys R Us did. I think that's the beginning and end of the list, though.

I have nothing plugged into the XBox One S other than portable hard drive.

I've had the Roku for a number of years now. Use it for Amazon, Hulu and Netflix mostly. Although I know a few of the other devices I own have them as well. A lot of redundancy with these devices.

I picked up the Android Media Box on my recent trip to Asia a few weeks ago. Got it fairly inexpensively. I won't really get into it, but I'm looking to use it to stream a few International channels that aren't available here. And yes, I'm well aware it has quite a few "shady" streaming capabilities.

I think the list of games is really strong and the addition of a finalized Star Fox 2 is a big plus! I know there are Secret of Mana fans out there, but I would of opted for Chrono Trigger instead.

Yeah, Secret of Mana is great, but Chrono Trigger is definitely better.

Five feet.

...

Didn't they have preorders for the NES classic, it just sold out within minutes.
They were extremely limited. More importantly, Nintendo came out and said early on that "The NES Classic is not a limited item". Before the fiasco unfolded, people had no warning that they would have to work hard to find one.

Yep, screw Nintendo. Not that I have any interest in this. Went from NES to Sega Genesis. Still have that.

If you ever wanted to get the NES Classic (or its non-union Mexican equivalent) here is a your chance:

While I agree, Secret of Mana was multiplayer! I really loved that.

That's a pirated knock-off. The "500 games" library is a bit of a clue.

Edit: Also, the controller ports are different. the real NES Classic has Wii Controller ports. This one doesn't even have the original NES controller ports, but something that looks like the Atari Joystick Port:

Jay, did the phrase "Mexican non-union equivalent" not tip you off?

Is that an allowable excuse for posting links to pirated content now?

You are allowed to list an item within 30 days of release, this clearly is before that and I think it's only taken down once reported.

Technically, you can list an auction before 30 days, but you have to ship the item within 30 days of purchase (auction end).
http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/pre-sale.html
Alice sells video games. She will receive a shipment of a new, very desirable video game from the publisher within 39 days. She starts a 10-day auction on eBay. Her listing clearly states that these games are offered as presale items, and that she will ship them to buyers within 30 days from the date the listing ends. Alice's handling time states 20 business days, since that is the time from the end of the listing to when the item is shipped. Alice's listing complies with this policy.
I actually don't see any listings on eBay at the moment, so they might've gone through and deleted all the auctions.

Oh, and this thing will be hacked in minutes. Goodbye 21 games!
