obviously can't please everyone with the game list, but weird not to see Tetris on there.
A friend mentioned to me that it includes Dr Mario which is pretty close to Tetris. Maybe that's why.
MY CHILDHOOD... in a box. A tiny box....
It doesn't take cartridges & is not compatible with the original NES controllers. Sounds like it's just a NES shaped box that runs an emulator.... but you are limited to the 30 preloaded games.
One of these makes way more sense. https://retropie.org.uk/ You could even adapt an actual NES console to run one http://lifehacker.com/rebuild-a-broken-nes-with-a-raspberry-pi-489799308
Sure, if you're a Raspberry Pi user/hacker. (Not to mention, in most cases playing ROMS is illegal & doesn't support developers...)
But this makes for an excellent user-friendly gift, and the money goes to the game makers. Bummer about not being able to add games to it though.
If Nintendo releases a SNES take on this, I'm biting.
Yeah I'd be more keen with a SNES.
It's inevitable if this does well.
Yeah inclusion of support for the old controllers would have bought major street cred.
Please make N64 :O
The lack of Super Tecmo Bowl (the 2nd one) is a deal breaker. Also it would have been awesome to have additional games via a cartridge or something.
Have the specs been released yet? I wonder if theres a way to purchase more gams in the future and somehow uploaded to it's internal storage.
That would be awesome, but FTA: " there doesn't seem to be any means of getting new games onto it".
Too bad no Mario Kart :(
There was no Mario Kart on NES :) The first version was released for SNES, in 1992.
If we are going pure :P I just wanted Mario Kart haha. Technically there is a Mario Kart for NES emulators ;)
If I had to pick a NES game: Smash TV...that was the boss...
I love Nintendo, I'm so glad things are picking up for them now. This is an instant buy for me.
