    What, no Dragon Quest/Warrior games? For shame, Nintendo! At least offer a way to get more games in it in the near future!

    Sure. And to be honest, I have a hacked Wii, and I can just use RetroArch.

    The controller definitely interests me, although I'd prefer an SNES controller.

    I wish there were a way to play N64 with HDMI more than anything, though.

    Wii/WiiU have somewhat limited N64 compatibility. The most recent emulator by Extrems is a big step in the right direction, but Banjo Tooie and DK64 are still unplayable.

    Please tell me that the NX will be using the same game ports.

    Also please tell me that the front lid opens and accepts carts that feature other combo packs if not new titles.
    Last but not least, please tell me that the Nx has that cartridge slot also. :)


    EDIT: They also need to bring back the NES advantage.

    well considering i have 10 nes consoles including a top loade, r 3 ROBs, and over 430 carts i guess i dont need this. HDMI only is fail. For the best experience you need a crt. There are good hdmi to a/v converters tho.
    Is still a cool all in 1 man if it had a cart slot tho... There is good games included and they are worth way more then the $59 price. Arent those controller ports the same as on the wii mote?

    Have you ever tried playing NES games on an HD TV using composite? It looks disgustingly blurry.

    Sooo.... 30 games? What are the specs? It's got 2 USB ports, does that mean it can hold more games? How does it work? Emulation? ROMs? How do you add games? If that's even possible?

    Now do one of Super Nintendo and make sure Square-Enix is on that list too.

    Nope, no usb support, neither internet connection. Just the 30 games pre installed and that's all. For collection purposes it's a nice addition.

    No, it won't have any method of expansion. Just the 30 games, and that's it. And no, those aren't USB ports, those are Wiimote expansion ports (as in, you can plug those NES controllers into a Wiimote for use with a Wii/WiiU/Bluetooth device). It does have a microUSB port on the back, but its sole purpose is to provide AC power to the unit (USB-to-wallplug adapter not included in PAL regions). It will run on emulation, and will have a few Virtual Console features as a result (like multi suspend points).
    I think that covers everything

    This is meant to be a standalone novelty item, nothing more. As I mentioned before, I only consider the controller to be noteworthy, as there's not really anything about the console itself that'd be fascinating to the average Nintendo enthusiast.

    yep... considering the fact that good old NTSC analog crt TVs have 480 effective vertical lines (horizontal isn't a fixed value for analog tv in NTSC or PAL) and many non-HD sources like VHS, betamax, video game hardware, etc. operate at 320x240, it's a perfect match and doesn't look blurry.

    put that signal on a full-HD LCD panel, via HDMI/DVI-D, and you've got one ugly, scaled image, displaying on a pixel count that isn't perfectly divisible by the source pixels, which means not only scaled, but interpolated and blurry.

    i remember when HD projectors and screens started becoming more affordable. I was constantly having to explain to angry facility managers or other 'boss types' at locations I was on contract with, why their sources looked WORSE on an HD display. I always tried to explain this beforehand, but nobody listened! UPgrade your sources too, don't get an HD video switcher and Projector, or just an HD projector, and still run your SD material through it... this was before the advent of good scaling hardware that uses "smart" algorithms to upscale the images in a much more pleasing way.

    but i digress...

    Believe it or not there will be some people that haven't played some of these amazing games in the last 20 years who will get hours of fun out of this thing. They're called casuals and this product, I hope, will be a sensation and might even finds its way into the hands of some really young players who will give it a try and find they enjoy what a real game plays like vs. flappy bird.

    30 games for .50 cents each, vs 5 dollars for one VC game, just sayin, and most of us has Wii/Classic Controllers already. NES emulation on Wii U is pretty bad lol.
