On November 11th, Nintendo will be releasing the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. In a recent video from IGN, we get a better look at the system and its features.

The plug-and-play system will come with one controller which can be plugged into a Nintendo Wii Remote to play Nintendo Wii or Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console games. In addition, it will also come with a total of 30 games and multiple suspend points for each title, letting you save progress to continue later.

The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition will release later this year on November 11th.

Are any of these 30 games third party or are they all from Nintendo?

Sorry I'm not completely in the loop.

Thanks.

I think they could make a ton of money offering the every game in the library for 3 dollars a pop.

Then 5 dollars for each game for the SNES.

I'm guessing Christmas 2017 we may see a release version 2 with 20-30 more different games. I'm betting the cost to open up the system for expansion would drive the price up another couple of bucks, and they wanted to come in at the $59.99 price point, or thereabouts. But it would be awesome if they did. Include a WiFi module, build an app store that has all the NES games for sale for a few bucks each. I'd pay more than $60 for that! Even more so if it was a SNES version!

The NES Classic extension cable works with the NES Classic controller, as well as the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, and Hyperkin’s NES to NES Classic adapter. It is a six foot long extension cord designed to compliment extend the range of the NES Classic controller’s 30 inch long cable. It is $7.99.

The NES Classic Is Good At Home And On The Go. November 9, 2016 . 12:00pm

The NES Classic is a sturdy system, which is great, because this feels like something you’re going to want to take out of the house with you and enjoy with friends and family.

5 comments Read >

Quote:

It’s easy to see the appeal of these plug-and-play systems that appear around the holidays. Finding working consoles and cartridges is a chore, as is finding a way to properly store them. Nintendo’s NES Classic seems, at first glance, like the sort of system that you’d grab on a lark. You’d hook them up to a TV every once in a while or give it as a gift to someone who had the NES years ago or was too young to witness it in its heyday. But, it’s more than that. This is a system that will work well when you’re in your home or visiting with friends.

The NES Classic is teeny. This is a statement I repeated multiple times to not only people upon actually seeing and holding it, but also to the system itself. (Because clearly, the NES Classic had to know it is teeny.) However, its size is misleading. You might look at something so small and feel as though it might be handled delicately or gingerly. While you certainly won’t want to go around dropping it from great heights, it isn’t something that will easily fall apart. The controllers clamp in securely, with buttons that must be pressed to release them from the system, it’s well constructed, and the buttons don’t feel loose or flimsy.



Frankly, it’s a system where there’s not much that can go wrong with it. You have the NES Classic unit, which feels as sturdy to me as my Nintendo 3DS does. You have the controller, which is a dead ringer for the original NES controller. The only moving parts are the power and reset buttons, which are securely affixed. I worry more about my RetroN 5, my current means of playing actual NES cartridges, than I would about the NES Classic. Especially when it comes to pulling the cartridges out of it!

It certainly feels better made than the other plug-and-play systems I’ve owned. The NES Classic’s plastic is solid. It genuinely feels like a smaller version of an actual NES, while the controller is pretty much identical to the one offered with the NES. It’s worlds better than the AtGames Genesis I have, though I do appreciate its ability to play cartridges. It’s worlds better than the Intellivision Flashback system I own. While I did appreciate the cartridge overlays, it doesn’t feel like something I could play every day for a week or month or take around with me.



Which is why the NES Classic feels to me like a more portable plug-and-play. It’s great in homes, sure. I’ve been plugging it into my TV’s HDMI slot, sitting on the floor in front of my TV, and using it almost every day since I’ve gotten it. The only issue I’ve had is it not working with my HDMI splitter the same way my Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation TV, and PlayStation 3 do. I have to actually plug its cable into my TV for it to work. But, it seems more like something you take with you when visiting friends or family.

I’ve been using the NES Classic box for getting it from place to place. It did a good enough job keeping it secure in transit to my home, and this is one of those rare items where you can perfectly get everything to fit back in the box the way it did originally. When I get where I’m going, we clear a space off on either the TV stand or floor in front of it, plug in the applicable cords, and sit in front of the TV to enjoy some classic games. It’s been out with me three times now and survived every voyage easily.


Even the game list encourages scenarios where you’d take the NES Classic out of the house for gaming sessions with other people. Of the 30 games in the collection, 16 offer multiplayer options. Of those, eight are sequential games. It’s something you want to share with other people.

You’re going to have to sit right in front of the NES Classic to play it, yes. You may even need to get a longer HDMI cable to have it reach from the TV to a place of honor where it can rest. But, it feels like something that isn’t going to be permanently interred in one station. This feels like a plug-and-play system that will be constantly plugged and unplugged to take it with you so everyone can enjoy the games on it. And, thanks to it being such a solid, well made little box, it’ll take those trips in stride.

The NES Classic will come to North America and Europe on November 11, 2016.

Nintendo forked themselves by not having an adequate supply. This is going to be a huge holiday seller for them. They probably underestimated the demand. The impact of their legacy and nostalgia factor hasn't been lost on consumers. They played it a little too cautious. I work at Target and we only had 15 units on hand. A good line of people, about 40-50, were waiting outside a few hours before we opened. Naturally, the unfortunate ones got turned away.

I heard Best Buy had 50. Wish I knew this before.

I also heard Nintendo will sell more during Black Friday and December 1st. So hopefully I'll have all the kinks worked out for my buying strategy.

Not at all. This is the same strategy they employed with the Wii. They are creating artificial demand in hopes that people who weren't going to buy one, eventually will when they see it because they'll think it's a hot, rare item.

They are most definitely going to have more shipments like these in the coming weeks until a couple of months where you'll see a bunch in stores.

Nintendo Eases Worry About NES Classic Edition Availability Following High Consumer Demand. November 13, 2016 . 1:30pm

Over on their official Twitter, Nintendo of America has attempted to put consumers at ease, assuring that they are “working hard to keep up with consumer demand.”

OK Just a couple of days ago, the NES Classic Edition launched in North America and Europe, and the tiny console was instantly met with high consumer demand, rendering lots of people unable to get their hands on a system.


However, Nintendo has announced that they are working to alleviate this problem. Over on their official Twitter, Nintendo of America has attempted to put consumers at ease, assuring that they are “working hard to keep up with consumer demand.” Additionally, they went on to say that consumers can look forward to “a steady flow of additional systems through the holiday shopping season and into the new year.”

Below are Nintendo’s official tweets regarding the matter:

Default Re: NES mini version including 30 games

this is how it's doing domestically.

Nintendo sold 262,961 NES Classic Edition consoles in Japan last week


Posted on November 15, 2016




It’s no secret that Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition is currently quite difficult to find on store shelves. Naturally, the unfulfilled demand has sent people scrambling to eBay, where buyers are paying exorbitant amounts of money to obtain the nostalgia-fueled microconsole.


Nintendo has promised to replenish the retail stock as soon as they can, but in the meantime, a new report from Famitsu has given us an idea of just how many NES Classic Edition consoles are out there. According to the gaming magazine, Nintendo sold 262,961 consoles in Japan during its launch period of November 10th through the 13th. The microconsole is known as the Famicom Classic Edition in Japan, and features slightly different styling from its American and European counterparts.


While this report doesn’t provide worldwide sales numbers for the NES Classic Edition, we can use a little educated guesswork to get a rough estimate. Assuming a roughly equal shipment between all three territories, it’s likely that Nintendo has already sold more than 750,000 NES Classic Edition consoles. And if Nintendo shipped more consoles to North America and Europe, its possible that total worldwide sales for the NES Classic Edition have already topped one million consoles.Read more

Walmart is putting some on sale everyday this week at 2pm PST on their website. I managed to get an order to go through yesterday, but it's really tough.
