It is called "Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System". If sales are fine guess what's next:

Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo
Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo 64

It's a shame about the heavy filtering on Wii U NES games as the SNES games are great. $60... I'll definitely buy this as long as they change their minds on how NES games should look in HD.

Off the shelf emulation boxes that actually work well are a rarity, if they exist at all. I've used emulators for 20 years but I'd still find an official plug and play package like this very appealing. I just hope they do it right.

It'd be my first NES (except that it's not a NES). I was never actually a Nintendo Kid. :whoopsie:

If enough people buy this they will release a Classic Mini NES 2 with 30 slightly different ROMs.

Buy a Pi and a USB NES pad. Better results guaranteed.

Those would be my thoughts too if I was to dismiss the zero setup time, the legal roms, the first party controller and cute little casing - the things about it that I like.

It's priced below the 'meh, just build your own' threshold imo.

Literally about 10 mins work to throw together a RetroPie system for NES stuff and have it running scanlined etc, and with the added bonus of being able to play other systems and other NES games as well.

Price is okay considering the cost of Pi+case+cables+SDcard+controller but the BYO is so vastly superior about the only thing going for it is the cute case factor IMO.

Every single other licensed emulator box has sucked in the past.
