    I was wondering, I have access to at least 10 of these right away. Should I buy them and resale?

    Lol, discontinued, like anyone can tell a difference :lol: My Wii U has better emulation than the NES Classic, it can't even get the sound right in a lot of the games.

    Where did it ever say that though? I'd take your side if it was on the packaging or Nintendo themselves said it.

    The Famicom Mini? That one is way cooler than the NES Mini.

    Say, does it still include the art cards it did at launch?

    i still don't know why people buy it, if someone already have a NES or can emulate it
    i can't understand why waste money with that :/

    They should make a n64 classic. Like seriously. 15+ years and still no good emulator. Hell, make a n64 classic with online multiplayer capabilities and you immediately have me sold.

    Only if you're going to sell them at cost. Otherwise leave them for other people

    Unfortunately the Zimbabwe dollar conversion rates of my bank accounts are a bit too high. I don't want to get ripped off, you know.

    They'd have to write a competent emulator, which they seemed to screw up badly with the Wii U; debatable, Mupen64 with ParaLLE and LLE emulation it seems to hit all the hard to emulate games fine. Not sure what emulator you've been using *shrug*. CFBD, Indiana Jones, Rogue Squadron, Battle for Naboo and RE2 all run fine on Mupen64.

    If you're talking official emulation, the NES Classic has the Wii U NES VC titles beat by a landslide.

    I got an original NES and plenty of systems to emulate NES on.
    But I like the design of it and it's a neat thing to have.

    Reason enough?

    Indeed, but unofficial emulators like Nestopia are cycle-accurate to the real deal, NERD (the team who developed the NES Classic) is close, but some games sound way off.

    Mupen64 plus, but I didn't think to use other RSP plugins. I need to look at my options more carefully. Going to check it out immediately when I get home.

    Technically yes, but folks have (easily?) allowed it to provide much more without paying a penny more, something that Nintendo would not do themselves because piracy and whatnot.

    RetroArch with Mupen uses some new LLE techniques and ParaLLE or something that makes those games emulate just fine. Use GlideN64 plugin as it's the best if you need to. Other plugins like Rice Video are garbage, but wherever you heard that N64 is as bad as you said it is, is dead wrong.

    Indeed, even PSX emulation, but it is a nightmare to set up.
