Flip and find out the details of the Nintendo NES Classic Edition…
Before the Nintendo NES Classic Edition is gone and only EBay carries it, we have a tip where to get one.
The Nintendo just released the throwback version on Thursday for $60, and it’s already sold out on Amazon. If you want one, head down to Best Buy, Gamestop and Target They’re only selling the NES Classic in stores.
If you don’t get one there is always EBay. Sellers on eBay are apparently offering the consoles for about $1,000 each. Yeah they’re cashing in on the consoles.
The Nintendo’s mini-sized classic console is worth the hype, its one of the hottest tech gifts of 2016 may be a throwback to 1985.
Earlier this year, the company announced plans to launch a tiny-sized NES Classic Edition — a system so petite it can fit in the palm of your hand. The news pulled at the heartstrings of everyone who grew up in the ’80s, evoking memories of sitting on the carpet of your childhood home and defeating King Bowser in the final level of Mario Bros.
More than three decades later, Nintendo has stuffed 30 of its classic games — from all the Mario Bros. franchises to Legends of Zelda, Pac-Man and Castlevania — into one mini console (5 inches x 4 inches x 1.6 inches). The system, due out November 11, serves them up in Netflix-style menu that makes it easy for scrolling. You won’t find a single physical game cartridge included.
Considering those games have been available for download on Nintendo’s Wii system for years, it was unclear if packing them into a retro-style console was a gimmick or something worth the $60 price tag.
But the magic of classic Nintendo is unquestionably preserved in this mini system. Call it nastagic, but back then games were fun, exciting and made kids laugh. It wasn’t about killing people, zombies or fighting. It was basically an innocent time in video gaming that is no longer.
NOTE: The throwback system also doesn’t connect to the internet. This means it’s not upgradable. You’ll be satisfied with 30 games, but it limits Nintendo from ever pushing out other titles, features or updates.
