    I guess this is on us for begging them to re-release their old games...

    At least we're getting Sunshine on Switch tho!

    do you really think that it will be difficult to get hold of one in the store on release day?

    They've had enough trouble keeping Switches in stock. If this device is marketed & manufactured more along the lines of the NES Mini, yes it could be difficult.

    hacking this stuff seems interesting, would open possibilities for GB & GBC emulation...

    It has three games. That's ten bucks by game plus twenty for the device itself. Granted you can't add more games but is also a collectable item.

    it's really too expensive but scalpers will probably buy it up anyways.

    you wish.
    it's probably mixed too, like, leftover ds/3ds screens or something.

    So a glorified nes emulator with a game everyone has played and the G&W ball game with the laziest of spritehack?
    Nintendo really be banging on them people clouded by nostalgia

    It will indeed be interesting to see how long it takes before the thing is hacked wide open and people start insisting on installing all the old games they've had sitting around for the last twenty years and still won't bother playing.

    Bring on Mario's Bombs Away!


    The NES mini that was recently cheaply available refurbished from Nintendo's store?

    The very same. The question was about buying it on release day.

    I'll get it for sure. I'm too young and I've never experienced any G&W before, I wasn't even born, but I do love the idea and if it's hackable that's an instant buy from me. That's also what sold me the SNES mini. Being able to play NES games on a G&W looks just too good even tho I maybe will just play 5 minutes from time to time and will even forget it when I'll have a Retroid Pocket 2 but eh, still cool af

    The NES Classic and SNES Classic were made to be hacked, literally. The code included a message from the devs. It was like a gift from Nintendo, and put a gold standard on SoC retro emulation.

    FWIW the button quality is going to be great on this. That's where Nintendo shines. Also, I'd be really surprised if they didn't make it an open system to be hacked.
