...Ok, but the SNES mini isn't hard to find and Nintendo already said they were going to keep making the NES mini available, so is there really that big of a need to rush and import from another country?

SNES mini still sells out at all online retailers and wasn't easy to find for months after release, you may as well lock an order in and just cancel later. The controllers especially were almost impossible to find officially, I only ever got a single Nintendo branded NES pad over the entire release cycle

I'm just trying to help people snag a order so they don't have to worry about not getting one

Yeah, I get that - But at this point I don't understand the rush and fervor.  I can walk into any Target, Wal-Mart, or Best Buy in my city and see at least 4 SNES Mini at any time on a shelf, and from what I understand the NES will continue to be in production to correct the (massive) supply issues from the original release.  Given that, importing it from Europe comes across as really excessive.

 

To each their own, though, I guess.

Really?  Both of the TRU stores in my city have had them on the shelves since the NES Mini was discontinued.  They still had them last weekend when I went to check the clearance status.  If you want I'll check if they still have the official ones this weekend.

Congrats on living in a city that no one else lives in and/or goes to...

*official* NES Mini controllers? even Wario couldn't find official controllers except for the initial small batch Amazon put up.

Because until this week, the SNES has been impossible to find. I *still* don't see it on real, physical store shelves

Preordered a controller--thanks OP.

If you're importing, see if your CC charges foreign transaction fees. If not, then order in euro rather than dollars; you'll get a better exchange rate than what Amazon will give you.

I mean I've honestly been seeing it every time I walk into a Target or Best Buy for at least two months.  Columbus, OH isn't the biggest city, but we're not exactly a dead spot in the middle of nowhere with one traffic light, either.

Pretty sure, yeah.  Like I said, I'll check again this weekend.  I may be wrong, but worth a look I suppose.

if you guys wait a little, Nintendo is bringing both the NES & SNES Classics back June 29th.

Yeah we know, nobody has much faith that the NES is going to be readily available at launch

 

I'm kinda curious if the NES that comes out is going to run on the SNES classic's hardware or if they're going to use the same original hw

The nes controllers work on the snes mini.  I may pick one up if and when they are available on amazon or best buy websites.  I really don't see any need for a nes mini.

What will you do when you need X and Y and the 2 shoulder buttons?

I got lucky with the SNES Classic and got it day one without any inconveniences. I might line up for the NES Classic if I miss out on a preorder deal, even though I'm far less interested in the system.

I meant that I want to buy an nes controller to use on my hacked snes mini.

Do the non-US versions have different games?

If anyone is interested, the CAG SNES Classic Discord server is now the NES Classic Discord server. If you left or muted it after you got your SNES you might want to check it out.

The NES Classic and the SNES Classic both use the same hardware.
