    If this "classic edition" was real, it would be a day-1 buy for me. That is all.

    PS: Sorry if this seems like a useless thread. I didn't see any others I thought it would fit into appropriately, and thought it was a cool thing to share.

    That is indeed a mighty fine fake. Though still a possibility if you consider they did a Famicom GBA Micro and an NES Gba SP.

    Maybe. But then again, those were both handhelds, whereas I can't recall Nintendo making any official "NES-editions" for their consoles. Maybe if we're lucky, we'll get a NES-edition 3DS.

    **EDIT**
    Apparently, a skin for the 3DS already exists. I would totally get this if I had a black 3DS (my aqua blue would look terrible with this!)

    That would be awesome, and a definite buy for me if it did come out.

    Ah, wouldn't it be great if they made a NES WiiU, and you flip open the hatch to insert discs?

    I'm sure someone will at least make a unofficial NES faceplate for the controller.

    ERROR!
    I wonder how long it will take until we see skins for this thing, I'm probably getting a black one sometime after launch, but given that black makes fingerprints really stand out I'm considering getting a skin for it, one that looks like this would be really awesome, though I'm probably just going to end up with a transparent one.

    Same problem here!

    I really hope Nintendo will start giving out skins for both Console and controllers(both Pro and game pad)

    The filename suggests Tumblr.

    Someone posted it on Facebook, and then I did a google image search. as another user mentioned, the file name suggests Tumblr.

    Same here,
    Laptops in Brazil, and eletronics in general are expensive as hell.
    A top Macbook costs a little bit more than $6000.

    Where's the slot for NES cartridges?

    I was thinking about getting the black version, but if this is true, I may change my mind.

    This is just a mock up. It's not real (hence the thread title). That said, I wouldn't be surprised if 3rd party skins like this started showing up after release.

    I would like to see some one mod the systems like this if Nintendo does not make them.... Skins would be kinda cool but the buttons being red and all.

    Maybe some company will sell a kit, skin for the controller buttons and a case for the machine itself?
