        I ordered two of the controllers to play NES Virtual Console on Wii U with that old school feeling. [cool]

          I like the look and idea of a NES box, being from Nintendo it will have to be better than those mediocre Atari 2600 boxes.

          Its tempting, but not as much as an N64 box would be, I’d run out and preorder that in an instant.

                ebgames online. They must not be getting them instore as store pickup wasn’t even an option like most preorders. I noticed though this morning that the ebgames preorders are now for the second shipment with a tba for release date, so i pre-ordered just in time last night haha

                  Oz Gameshop was selling them for $85 but it looks like they have sold out now. Maybe worth checking back to see if they get stock again

                    Seems it’s sold out every where :( I hope they do more runs.

                        Some new details:

                        – Each game keeps its original presentation quirks (Ex: blank line on the left of screen in Mario Bros. 3)
                        – Press the reset button to visit the Home Menu
                        – Option to reduce screen burn-in
                        – Auto-shudown setting
                        – 8 languages
                        – English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Netherlands, Portuguese, and Russian
                        – Demo screensaver mode that shows a tug of war between Mario and Luigi if you leave it idle
                        – You’ll also see big pixel-art versions of characters
                        – Games run both brighter and sharper than on the Wii U Virtual Console
                        – No option to stretch games to fill a widescreen
                        – Option dims the screen after a certain amount of idle time
                        – Legal notices included
                        – Legal notices mentions an open-source license
                        – Nintendo didn’t say what’s in the machine, what emulator it’s running
                        – A little “lock” icon is on the four save slots
                        – This lets you lock the saved game in place so someone else can’t save their game on top of it

                                Damn

                                I’m guessing I can get shafted on eBay if I really want it

                                  You’d pay a hefty price, I’d say. I reckon they’ll release more heading into 2017.

                                    I’ll cross my fingers

                                    I’m going to assume they will too considering the success of this release

                                      Russian Hacker Madmonkey also releases tool to put custom ROMs on the NES Classic from nesclassicmods

                                      Don’t need a Raspberry Pi after all! Unless you want an emulator other than NES, of course. :P

                                          Oh wow I didn’t realise you could just plug it into the computer via USB! I thought the USB power input would have just been power only. These just went up in value!
