These are nice to have to play old NES/SNES/Genesis/TurboGrafx-16 games on (after modding).

I was able to get one of these a few weeks ago on amazon.  Yeah, most of the games on it are meh.  But you can mod it and add whatever you want across multiple systems.  Making it it very worth it.

Considering it doesn’t go past the SNES I’m not so sure on that one, it is rather nifty though

I keep debating about buying it but I have my modded Xbox which has SNES games so I don't need to buy the classic

Well, he did say since the Wii, and in regards to that systems emulation capabilities, it is a very true statement. I modded my son's NES mini before he sold it to get a switch, and I thought it was killer. It wasn't so great at retail pricing, but once you made it all it could be, it became well worth the asking price and then some. There are better alternatives, especially in regards to what a person can do, but the program created for the mini's, is really easy and user friendly to use. Some of the better options can require a bit of a learning curve, so those aren't for everyone.

I had a buddy who "gifted" his to his sister for her son's birthday. Made her bid on it and it sold for like 200. Great brother.

I only use eBay to get rid of stuff I don't want. This is a laaaate Xmas gift, actually. I'm a lazy ass.

Earthbound alone goes for over $80. This is a great deal if your actually going to play the games.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Don't get the "well it's worth it to mod" mentality... If you have a phone, or a tablet, or an old laptop (a lap top from the early 2000's can EASILY run SNES games) or PC you can use roms for FREE.  Shoot, depending on your setup you may even be able to stream said games or flat out hook them up to your TV.  Well the controller you say?  Ok in most setups you can use your XBox or PS4 controller or find a cheap SNES inspired one that works great.

 

You're basically paying $80 for a case when you buy this to mod.

You can buy a convertor cable for under $10: https://www.walmart....edSellerId=2216

 

I have one and it works great, although some games can get cut off a bit depending on how your TV is set up.

I just saw my first one at retail about a week or two ago, and the following week the same store went from 1, to about 7-8. I've also been seeing them offered several times a week here at CAG. 

 

But this should be good to see, as the NES should be ramping back up, so leaving a good stock at retail before stopping the SNES will be good for the holidays.

Wild SNES Classic appeared! ...but yeah, this is good to hear. Already have one so it's all the same to me now but this is great for anyone else who still couldn't get one. Now if only Nintendo makes good on their promise of doing more NES Classic runs so the eBay prices go down and all those sellers with pyramids of NES Classics in their photos feel stupid.

Those pyramid guys should have dumped those off ages ago, if their still sitting on tons, they deserve to get stuck at this point. "N" said directly that the NES was coming back the summer of 2018, so to not have sold remaining inventory this late, is just begging to ask for trouble. Now of course, summer to NoA could mean late September or some other off the wall estimate, but I'm sure the new version will include dual controllers as well. So that renders the old ones pretty useless, unless "N" changes the games offered, which would help the OG to remain collectible.

They need to make nes classic controllers, the stand alone ones need to come back. Those are so rare. I just want one so I'll finally have 2 official Nintendo controllers and not knock offs.

I really hope they release the controllers individually again.  I got a NES Classic, but never managed to find an extra controller, and really don't like the third party options.
