Maybe they'll fix it in the next run of units?
Well, you know what the Ferengi say: "Anything worth selling is worth selling twice."

Ah yes, Nintendo, "They're greedy, misogynistic, untrustworthy little trolls, and I wouldn't turn my back on one of them for a second... But once you accept that, you'll find they can be a lot of fun."

I have a PC that can do it, a PSP & a Vita that can and a Wii that can. A phone that can too (but with awful touch screen controls).
I don't need this, but more power to those that do.

Yeah, this thing is pure novelty.
Cigarettes, ice-cream, figurines of the Virgin Mary...

I looked on Amazon over the last few days and it seems the average resell price has dropped $60 or so. Now you can get one for merely $125 rather than $185  :laugh:

I might still pick one up once I can find it for the actual msrp of $59.99, but I refuse to reward the price gougers.

Nintendo, you conditioned us to like small cute things as children

Now you are selling the weird redesign of the device you used to do it in a small, cute form.

...I really think I'd rather learn how to play Hanafuda, or whatever game Hanafuda cards are used to play? Didn't Nintendo used to make Hanafuda cards?

...This is like, advanced level Pavlovian salesmanship of some Guinness World Record.
Yamero~~!

Well, it had to happen:
http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/01/hackers_apparently_add_additional_games_to_nes_mini

I did that with mine. Added in a bunch of games that were far more worthy, including a few choice hacks. Loads of fun!

It's no surprise at this point, but somebody forced the NES Classic to run Retroarch, giving it the ability to run other system's games, ranging from SNES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy, and even N64:

I'm already sastisfied with just NES games on the system (even ones you unofficialy add), making it run Retroarch it's overdoing it, and kinda ruins the charm of it.

Weren't there times when Tetris and Doom and Pacman were being ported to every darn thing that accepts electricity or something? Port-overdosed software yeah...

RetroArch is one of those. When will they stop porting it? They may as well make the welcome message in the next version "I am Locutus of Borg. Your life as you have known it is over. From this moment forward, you will service us."

^_^ Gosh I'm such a dork.

Might try this, just for giggles. Seems like it could be fun!

Totally understandable. Kind of agree with you as well.
