    It is so cute!

    Even though I already have all those game on original carts I need this for my big screen. Still a bit puzzled over the inclusion of Super C instead of Contra but overall a good selection of games.

    This ^^^

    Also I wonder if the Final Fantasy version on this thing will have all the bugs fixed. Probably not.

    But will the games be 1080p and 60fps? If not, they might as well surrender to the power of the PS4.

    Oh wait, this isn't one of those debates. Wohoo, retro game nostalgia where graphics don't matter!

    Nifty.

    No Castlevania III though, it's the best one!

    I wonder if there will be a way to add games to it? If not I'm not interested but if so I might be tempted.

    I'm surprised they haven't done something like this sooner. Now if they would only release a mini version of R.O.B.

    UGHHH!!! $60 that's such a good value. The only problem is I have all those on emulator and I have a controller to play them on my laptop. That's how you do your pricing though. That's a great value for $60.

    Can I mod it to play romhacks?

    Kids are going to get destroyed, these games don't have 'super easy' difficulty levels.

    Tecmo Super Bowl >>>> Tecmo Bowl

    That gripe aside, that's a pretty solid deal and definitely worth considering.

    I'm assuming it doesn't take cartridges though. They should have made it even smaller if thats the case.

    Even better would have been just selling it as a new handheld. Maybe they toyed with that idea but it would have been too expensive.

    Looks great, though with FF there I'm surprised it doesn't have a Dragon's Quest game.

    I have a modded PS1 and have pretty much all of the good NES games with It Must Be Nes.

    I'm a bit intrigued, but also disappointed that it doesn't appear to be expandable (i.e. no way to load/add a game). It would've been really nice if they'd added the ability to use existing NES cartridges (top-loaded, to reduce the problems with the VCR format). I realize that that would likely mean a whole separate subsystem and a higher price, but I'd be fine with that. I'd pay $99 for such a system and then they could still sell the basic version for $60.

    As is, I'm not sure that I would buy this. You could likely make something very similar to this for a similar price using a Raspberry Pi, an SD card, a USB NES controller and an emulator. If people figure out how to hack this and add games, then I'll definitely be very interested. I'm also interested in seeing if any knockoffs are produced. There are already many companies that make boxes that play original NES cartridges, so a next evolution of those would be ones that take cartridges and can play them from local memory. I would absolutely fork over money for that.

    Considering the mechanics and time that it was created, people are much better off playing the remakes (available on GB, mobile, etc). Dragon Quest I-IV NES is really only an undertaking to be had by people who aren't turned off by archaic design.

    Also, is this really a good idea considering how easy it is to emulate NES? I'd much rather spend the money on platforms that are hard as **** to emulate (Saturn, N64 - a bit inconsistent, etc).

    Not sure if my parents paid $60 for DD II back then.

    But, other than HDMI and the cuteness factor, not sure why I want this, when I can emulate NES on like everything at this point, and I have an Everdrive+retro duo or Wii that can already do this.

    (it would have to be an awesome emulator with the best progressive scan and zero FPS drops for me to buy this, because seriously NES emus have been done...but it is cute)
