    if we can use the mini snes like we did with the nes, to hack it and put all roms on it.. i may concideer to get one...
    nintendo doesn't have anything to loose, they doublewin if they don't attempt to fix the exploit and release the console "we hate piracy, please don't pirate but, but here's the stuff, i will close my eyes, what happens, happens.."

    If they make an N64 mini, they'll have my money.

    Sega releasing a mini version of their Saturn console would make even more sense. The NES, SNES and Genesis are all capable of perfect emulation on a device with halfway decent processing power. The Saturn...not even close. I feel like the lack of high caliber Saturn emulation has made playing Saturn games even more appealing for hardcore gamers.

    I'd get the USA version. I have 2 boxy USA SNES and they're so damn beautiful.

    Nintendo is a for profit company that exists to make money. Artificial scarcity increases demand. I don't blame them; if they don't make money, then they stop making games.

    Watch, it will launch. Scalpers preorder everything. People who want one, will not get it. Be forced to pay scalpers price. Repeat.

    Personally, I'd make sure to either preorder one or keep an eye on some kind of tracker (I got one at RRP thanks to Hotukdeals).

    That said, I wonder if there will be an SNES mini, at least if Switch sales are strong and they launch the VC by then (although I think Nintendo are missing out on potential profit by doing so).

    You can already play SNES games on the NES classic with hakchi.

    I lack an SNES, which sucks because I'm a Super Nintendo ROM Hacker (go 65c816 woohoo)

    the best thing ever.

    Hopefully they actually do preorders this time around. Also if you buy 10 of them you'll probably own every SNES classic in the world.

    Well be sure to pre-order it within 30 seconds or you will miss out.

    30 seconds? That's being more than generous. I give it 10 seconds, at most, before scalpers and fans descend like wild animals on the preorder button.

    Amazon and other sellers usually restrict their products to certain countries whereas I will be willing to ship to any country as requested by the buyer. Might cost a bit more than its retail price but you'll get it. :P

    SNES Mini does exist though. Or called SNES Jr. Don't know how they will call it.
