    I think I'll buy it depending on the price. It'll be a good collectible

    the NES controller seem to be useable as Wii classic controller.

    Are there already official NES styled classic controller available, I'm not sure?

    2 questions b4 buying: is there cart compatibility? Or just eshop-like web game store with digital copies? And would it be hackable?:-)

    Looking at the image carefully, the flap doesn't seem to be liftable. Not sure though

    No. The picture above shows the system's scale.

    It wouldn't work with original cartridges because its a mini NES.
    Hope they release a mini SNES.

    And even if it would be liftable, I am pretty sure that no NES-Cartridge will ever fit.
    But I wonder - as it states "preinstalled" - if one could install more games, via e.g. SD-Card or Wifi.
    As it has save state compatibility ('players needn’t worry about losing any hard-earned progress either as each game has multiple suspend points, allowing them to start where they left off at a later time, no passwords needed.') there seems to be some kind of hypervisor operating-system-alike.

    Can't believe it took Nintendo all this time to jump on the who!e mini classic console market. But I wonder why they held off from doing this for so long. I thought they wanted people to buy from their eshop. Either way, I NEED A SNES ONE PLEASE.

    Didn't they concepted several official classic controller-alikes for Wii's Virtual Console for every supported system (even Genesis & co) while development but never released them and ended up with todays classic controller?
    I am unsure but I think there was a picture with such beta devices floating around on the web.

    Hell... would be better to buy the original...
    I think that it will really be un-cartridge-able, which leaves us with selected few options that nintendo will release for it... and also most probably it isnt snes so....

    Oh my god, this is like, the best thing ever! I do wonder if the games are emulated or run natively.

    If it wont be dirt cheap then you should better buy a wiiu(which has nes snes n64 gamecube and wii compatibility and also lotta other consoles) or wii (nes,snes,gamecube and its own wii library, and other homebrew emu's). They arent too pricy and the original wii is pretty small... or a (n)3ds which has nes/snes compatibility...
    The wiiu has hdmi afaik and wii can be used with really cheep adapter to hdmi so... to me it looks pointless

    Also u can use your phone with hdmi adapter and usb/bluetooth/wifi nes controller...

    Just in case you didn't know, the Everdrive N8 is a flashcart for the NES
