Bring back memories and make brand new ones with Nintendo's ultimate retro gaming experience, launching 11th November!

Relive the 80s when the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System launches in stores on 11th November. The classic NES is back in a familiar-yet-new form as a mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console. Plugging directly into a high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, the console comes complete with 30 NES games built-in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN and Kirby’s Adventure.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System comes packaged with an HDMI cable, a USB cable for powering the system*, and one Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller. And whether it’s rediscovering an old favourite or experiencing the joy of NES for the first time, the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system should have something for all players.

US Price has been revealed at $59.99 USD, + $10 for a second controller.

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?:-)

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....

Well, except for the HDMI out
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...
