    Blocking any news is a bit too harsh, but yeah, I see what you mean. It's brain-dead simple to play any SNES game on practically any device, and most people don't give a heck about the legality of it all. To me, the SNES classic is either for those too scared to emulate or people concerned with the authenticity of the experience. And even then, you're better off get a SNES off eBay or something if you're that concerned about "the authentic experience."

    Truth be told, though, it does seem like a niche little console that'll become rare and expensive later on, but if only because of thes limited units Nintendo is putting out. Maybe that's who they're targeting?

    That's actually pretty cool. It's just a shame TecToy butchered the YM2612 chip.

    The sound on all games played on this version of the Mega Drive is just off. I'm referring to the MD's sound chip. They seem to be manufacturing them wrong.

    It's a shame, too; I really like the Genesis's sound chip (granted it's used correctly and doesn't just use the ass presets found in GEMS, but that's a story for another time).

    im obviously not a business man but if i were nintendo, i'd make about 100 million of each and take the risk of having to slash prices later in the life span.

    its the quality that keeps the price at MSRP not the quantity. look how long mario/zelda games stay at full MSRP! i think they slashed the prices on the Wii U titles to help increase sales but it devalued Mario 3d world and windwaker hd to almost nothing.

    i would announce and back waves of like 25 million units per wave and promise dates of release. this way every one can get one and i make billions of profit since the NES Classic prob costs about $3 to manufacture lol.

    Exactly. Topic finished. So, lets talk about how likely the N64 mini is and how bad we want one until Mario Oddysee comes out, because then we want to talk about nothing else in Nintendo related posts on Facebook ;)

    I agree! I can never be bothered to go on Facebook. Last time I was there? Maybe 5 or 6 months ago...


    Back on topic...
    Wait, you mean Nintendo actually learned from a mistake?!? Uh, wow! That's news to me.
