    This will be the first time Star Fox 2 has been released. Even though it was completed for the SNES it was cancelled.

    The NES Classic release was a disaster. Doubt I'll be able to get this

    Even though I have an SNES and a handful of those games, I am in for this.

    I did some quick research on it. The basically felt that it was to close to the release of the N64 and didn't want people to think that's what 3D was like.

    I doubt I'll ever play it. Chances are I won't even see one of these in stores.

    From what I've read it's not to hard to find the game if you know where to look.
  9. Dang. This is tempting!

    Already have all those games on a Raspberry Pi. No need for this! Not like I would ever be able to find one in stores anyways, thanks to Nintendo's love for intentional shortage.

    I don't think I would buy this. The graphics look like absolute piss compared to my xbox one.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Zombies Ate My Neighbors isn't on it.....rendering it useless.
  14. I am getting this for sure

    Mr. Emeritus Prestigious

    i got the NES Classic, but I don't play it that much. I see that they are going for about 3x what I paid for it, and this one has some of my all-time favorite games. So I think i may do a switcheroo.

    We never had an SNES when I was a kid (we had a sega instead), but that was because i was the younger brother and my older bro wanted Sega (because of their marketing, which if you're interested, is chronicled in the amazing book "Console Wars".)

    ANYWAY, this i am truly excited for!

    Said the would be shipping "significantly" more unit than the NES Classic. Lets hope. Honest customers get screwed otherwise when resellers will be out in mass for this.

    The game selection is incredible BTW. I'm so glad and a little shocked that Mega Man X is on this!!

    It's the best Mega Man game ever so yeah

    Mega Man X is one of my favorite games of all time.

    i'll believe this actually exists when it's actually in stock ANYFUCKINGWHERE.

    still super bitter that Nintendo randomly cancelled the NES classic and the entire pathetic roll out of that one last year. i'd love to get this (as well as the NES classic) but i'm not paying more than $70 for them.

    Give what you can.

    This is probably a dumb question, but does anyone know if there's a cord or anything that can make my current Super Nintendo not look like total dogshit on my non-1994 TV?
