Reminds me of an old joke.

What is black and white, and re(a)d all over?

A penguin in a blender? A nun falling down the stairs? A rolled-up newspaper after beating an orphan?

A newspaper.


I did not say it was a good joke.

Cinemassacre was saying their store-owning friend ordered 90 units and received 2.

Got a message from my retailer about not getting one, and maybe getting one next year.

I love how extremely tiny it is compared to the TV.... Back in my day NESes were huge, and so were TV's :wheelchair:

Like so :

Also, since the cord is only 3 ft long and you have a 65" TV, aren't you blinded by the pixels yet?

The new mini NES is just over the width of the controller. :lol:

I sincerely hope they sell "expansion packs" with more games on, say, a USB drive. This could be a HUGE profit center family of products that I don't see diluting their brand, or cannibalizing sales of their flagship products at all...it would be a shame if it were just a one-off.

They had BETTER have a SNES version at least, though...and it better have F-Zero (but don't hold your breath for Star Fox).

That controller cord issue is infuriating, though. At first I thought, "Oh, you can just use a long HDMI cable so you can reach the reset button (which isn't just a reset button) from where you play...but then it also still needs external power source.

Sadly all the teardowns show no easy way to add games via download or USB.

I hope that Atari and Sega come out with the same exact concept next year for the 2600 and Genesis with HDMI ports.

Nintendo's implementation is perfect. I wonder why they couldnt make it smaller seeming smartwatches today are more powerful than the NES.

Looking forward to Nintendo coming out with the SNES Mini next year.

The power is USB of some sort, isn't it? Are they not built to take data from that port? Oh...it wouldn't be getting power then...shit.
