This one is WAY more tempting than the other NES one IMHO

Weakest link is Super Ghouls and Ghosts and that is still a great game though with some shitty gotcha moments.

When FFIII is the "worst" game on there...

The only thing is that I have almost all of these on VC.

The clincher for me is:
"Can I use my super Nintendo cartridges in it?"

I'd just like to be able to walk into a store and buy a goddamn Switch.

I swear to god, Nintendo better not fuck me on this and only make a dozen again.

I'm glad it looks like they're just throwing the second controller in there, but I still kind of think they're underselling themselves. I'd want more games, but I could easily see this selling well for $100+ given what some kickstarters go for. I imagine this won't be expandable like the NES classic.

I'm going to be in some serious trouble when the n64 one eventually comes out with Rigue Squadron. The most killer app of killer apps for me

We aren’t providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.

The NES Classic was not expandable.

Can't say I'm nuts about this. Most people are going to buy one, play for a couple of hours, realise that games in the SNES era were nuts hard and never turn it on again. Not to mention that above and beyond the difficulty, it's a general truth that modern games > older games and we all already have too many modern games.

And if you really feel the need to retrogame you can just play them all on an emulator anyway.

Actually, it kind of was. It turned out it had enough memory to support well over 600 ROMs, most of the US releases, and given that the NES Classic was just an emulator anyway, it plays most of them fairly well. There's instructions out there on how to do it, but I've not done it to mine. Still not sure I'm keeping it. It's worth far too much for me to hold on to while I still have a working top loader.

My guess is the Nintendo put significantly less memory on this one. The number of NES Classics on eBay that are modded out to have the 600+ games on it is crazy. I'm sure that helped to drive up the scalper market.

PS - Modern gaming and, more importantly, modern gamers, can fuck off.

I'm ok with Ben Affleck playing Batman. At least there will be a better director on set.

I wouldn't expect such a rude statement from you. I don't think Matt was saying all old games suck. He was merely pointing out that games have come a long way, and there are many quality of life improvements common today that were either not possible back then or just weren't done.
