    You could always get the PiTendo, or Pi Zero in a NES controller. Cool projects.

    Problem is, neither of these would be viable if I wanted to speedrun a game, since I wouldn't be able to submit the results into any leaderboards, or for a GDQ event. :(

    Would be nice but I doubt. This holiday Winter 2017 is obviously since NES CLASSIC EDITION/MINI released last year on Nov 2016.

    Not to mention that its gonna be pretty costly as time goes by, much like a collector's item.

    Why? Nobody would be able to actually find and buy one through normal means anyway.

    I'm beginning to wonder if the Big N is allergic to absurd amounts of money.

    Strange, I could've sworn that 'Wii U' thing sold more units. Huh, must just be my imagination.

    it's just a glorified android emulator with 30 rom and 3d printed NES box.

    There are now two possibilities:
    SNES Classic is on the horizon
    Nintendo decided to cut their losses after no doubt losing thousands of future VC sales to the hakchi machine.

    This is the likely reason its being discontinued. No other company would willingly give up on a sure thing thats selling well.

    I assume it's for the gamepad. Not only to reduce data stream and minimise wireless lag but to not appear too saturated as on Wii mode, but instead of a toggle between "normal saturation" or "corrected-to-gamepad saturation", they simply throw the less desirable option.
    Although the color palette is not good, if you have a TV that is calibrated correctly, you should be fine, or you will join the group of people complaining that the game is too dark.

    Is this thing worth $80 bucks?? I could get one now here in Japan for this price, its the current reselling price.

    Im afraid that after this announcement (japanese version also discountinued), the price will go up
