How about a poll where you get to take ONE game included off the system and add ONE of your choice? 

 

For me, I'd get rid of Kirby's Dream Course and add Illusion of Gaia.

Get rid of Super Mario Kart and add Chrono Trigger. 

 

Really going against the grain here, I know. 

 

Also, I made the mistake of looking at the full game list, and got super excited and then sad because I live in fear that the UK orders will be cancelled  :whee:

Remove Kirby, add Chrono Trigger.  Seriously, why isn't Chrono Trigger on here?

First game I'll play: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

 

Game I'll remove: StarFox 2

Game I would replace with: Seiken Densetsu 3

(spending the bonus "unreleased points" to apply to my more desired yet unreleased game.)

 

Next Classic to be launched: Portable GameBoy Classic, with HDMI port for docking to TV. 40 games

"Factor 2: This system is cheaper then the Switch by 66%"

 

Everyone is so sleep deprived, no one caught this?

hmm? did I do the math wrong?

The switch retails at $299.99 correct? that's ~$300

And then 1/3 of the price is $100

so the discount vs the price of the switch is a rounded 66% lower price.

 

The SNES Classic is 26.6%, the price of the Nintendo Switch. So round that down to about a 75% cheaper.

I'm so confused.

Depends on what kind of math you want to use.

I'm so confused.

The context was a list of reasons why this thread beat out the NSwitch thread, since someone commented on this being odd. My 2nd point was that this, The SNES Classic, in theory will be cheaper to purchase then the NSwitch. This would allow more people to potentially meet the price requirement to purchase the system. essentially the SNES classic only costs 1/4 of the NSwitch (in NA). This would allow more people to get hyped and flood this thread based solely on the cheaper price.

Well I just hope they are releasing more than you guys think. Someone from Ninty said that there were releasing more of these in the uk than for the entire world with the NES classic. Hopefully thats true for the U.S. too

I know, I just don't know how you're using both 33/66% and 26.6%. One's ~1/3 and one's ~1/4.

I know, I just don't know how you're using both 33/66% and 26.6%. One's ~1/3 and one's ~1/4.

This seems like a correct use of Steiner math to me.

I don't understand why you all more upset with the fact there is 21 vs 30 games. They could easily added 9 more games and kept the bonus Star Fox 2.

People are out of their mind if they would replace Secret of Mana before Kirby's Dream Course.

Playing Contra 3 first, then Secret of Mana after I murder gentlyporking.

Then add in actraiser and I can rest easy knowing the world has been restored.

That's just what happens when you are this sleep deprived from refreshing the intenet for four days straight to get one of these blasted things.

Obviously more games would be preferable, but a significant number of NES Classic games were pretty lousy. Balloon Fight? Dr. Mario? Ice Climber? Castlevania II?

 

Pretty much every title on the SNES is a slam dunk.

Agree. Kirbys dream course is without a doubt the worst game on the list. i would replace it with Chrono with my second replacement being TMNT turtles in time.
Adding a few more games to make it closer to 30 i would add Lufia 2, Zombies ate my neighbors, Actraiser, DK2. But all this won't matter if it sells out before i get one since it WILL go on sale while I'm nut paying attention just like the UK preorders.
