Update: so I found out that no more classic nes....heard rumors they will come out with snes for this holiday season so wait til then
Since its announcement about a year back, everyone has been eagerly awaiting the NES Classic Edition- a plug-and-play mini-console from Nintendo that features 30 classic games built-in. Millions of people were ready to relive their nostalgic memories of the days of gaming past...
Until Nintendo dropped the ball with absolutely laughable and ridiculously low manufacturing numbers, barely existent availability in stores, artificial scarcity to drive up demands, promises that "more will come"... all before announcing that they were halting production with only a small fraction of people actually having had their change to nab one so they could focus on a second model based around the Super Nintendo, thus guaranteeing that people are going to have to spend many times its original cost on second-party stores and sellers who are understandably driving up the cost.
Well, I caved and managed to find a used one that didn't cost an arm and a leg (there's no way I'm spending $500 on this thing), and I will say that I'm overall pleased with my purchase. But I can't justify a higher score because in order to get one now, you're going to have to shell out at least twice what its actually worth, and unless you're one of the most hardcore of fans, it's not gonna be completely worth it. If I got one for the suggested retail price, this would have been an easy 5 out of 5. Heck, I'd have been willing to pay $100 for the thing and probably still given it a perfect score, since that'd work out to less than $3.50 a game, and these games are worth it. But given that most people are going to have to pay $200+ for one if they really want it... nope, it's not getting that perfect 5 from me.
The NES Classic is quite nifty. The games are perfect ports and each one is an indisputable classic. The system itself is adorable and fits in the palm of your hand. And it even boasts some nice features, such as the ability to create up to four save-states per game (meaning you won't have to remember those ridiculous passwords in some games ever again!) and three options for how to display the games on-screen. (Including a standard HD representation, a "Pixel Perfect" option that makes each pixel a perfect square and slightly "condenses" the image into a cleaner and sharper one, and a really fun "CRT" option that simulates what the games looked like on old SD television sets with their horizontal lines and subtle blur.)
It comes down to this... If you're an enormous fan of the games, and you can find one for less than $150... it might be worth picking up. But don't go spending $300, $400, $500 or more. It's just not worth it at that point.
