    Just in case that you don't know, I think the design is an important part for most people with this special hardware, the design of the European minis looks completly different from the NA models.

    Yes, Lance Barr was responsible for the NA redesign when he worked for NOA back in the early 90's. His logic, according an interview, is he alleged it looked too "toy like". I call BS, I like the EU/JP design better.

    Do games have to be translated these days? Last I saw the manuals/boxes had to be dual language but that was about it.

    Yeah I went in store and it took 30 minutes to pre order one. Also I had to sell my soul to the devil and buy a bundle but it's worth the hassle and ultimately having to pass buying one due to scalpers

    I'm assuming gamestop do similar shit as the likes of game with limited run items, i.e selling 5 separate and then putting 50 with stupidly overprices "starter kits" which is crappy junk you find in a pound shop such as stylus's and screen protectors for an added £20 on top (although I cant quite see what crap they could bundle with these, maybe controller extension cables or something

    Yup, the exact same thing. Mine came with a prima book (I think it's the book that's getting launched the same day) and an extra blue controller (I was fine with that since I was going to have to get cable extensions anyways if I didn't get an extra controller with a longer cord). Still better paying a bit extra than paying $300 on eBay. I've looked at some of the listings and they're already in that range.

    If you call not restocking or producing enough NES classics a good marketing decision, sure.

    Yeah, I couldn't get one on the site because they can't maintain a site worth garbage. So I still have mine on Amazon, and I plan on possibly getting a second one for someone's Christmas present, heh.

    Lol, it was down for around 5 hours. Dirty scalper! Just kidding. Trying to get a second one for my uncle. Probably will go in store on release day and try if I can't get a pre order.

    Oh, cool! Just learned the extra controller I'm getting is wireless and I'm also getting the official prima book for the SNES classic. Worth the $40 extra IMO.

    A younger, quicker Hanafuda once beat Contra on his NES without using the Konami code. (But first I did it about a half-dozen times using the Konami code.) This was in approx 1990, when you were lucky to own more than 10 games so you just got really good at what you had. I probably couldn't beat the first stage now without some practice.

    This sucks...
    New info for Québec, Nintendo is deliberately not selling the console here!

    Are you for real Nintendo?! This is the dumbest corporate decision you have ever done!

    Funny thing about Amazon, there were two entries, one had Nintendo, one had something called Nintendo Digital Download/GamesTrust or something weird; the second one was taken down. Coincidence? I think not!
