        This will sell out like the NES Classic and the 'street' price will climb. So RRP is a bargain.

      Can you insert a game cartridge for the games that are missing?

        Nope..games are pre-loaded

          so the cartridge slot is fake? Actually, come to think of it - the whole thing is really tiny, isn't it. Wouldn't fit a real cartridge. duh!

          @xyron: Done!

          OR just spend the same amount of money for a RetroPi system, don't need to hack it then, just load games and play

        They'd better release Goldeneye with that or I'm gonna flip

      All I hope is it has a bit more storage on board.

      Get past the 300mb limit.

      Hopefully a bit better CPU to run some n64.

      Although it's possibly just the same as the old NES system in terms of hardware in a different box.

      It really is possibly the best game on SNES, my brother and I play through it just about every year.
      Real shame that it's missing.

        I used to listen to the soundtrack when I was studying for exams. Dave Wise has written some amazing music for the DK series.

        •  

          Omg I thought I was the only one!

          DKC2 was an awesome game with some of the best videogame music I've heard in my life.

          I used to be a fan of Rareware simply because of the quality of their games and music.

          Edit: DKC2 Mining Melancholy is catchy as hell

        • +6 votes

          It's a Super Nintendo with Super Nintendo games pre-installed, as opposed to a NES with NES games preinstalled. They're two completely different consoles from two different generations of gaming.

      I'd say better. You're getting arguable / demonstrably better games (e.g DKC, EarthBound, FF3(6), ALttP, Mario Kart, Mario RPG) - but you're also getting a game that was never released (Star Fox 2) so you're getting something unique.

    • +3 votes

      I would bet it is the exact same internals with a new shell. The NES mini can already play SNES games.

      This hasn't stopped me preordering :-P

    •  

      Subjective, some would say the NES was more consistent in some ways. SNES has alot of nostalgia attached to it which over time has made it somewhat overrated though still very good.

    • +3 votes

      NES classic is 8 bit. Super Nintendo is 16 bit.

      So you could say its 8bit better

    Bit dodgy the AC adapter is required to play but has to be purchased separately. Preordered anyway though; can't resist some classic SNES action ;)

    • +1 vote

      This would be excluded to reduce packaging size (thus reduce delivery cost for Nintendo) and plenty of people will have spare USB adaptors anyway.

      •  

        That's fine if you can use any USB adapter but it's yet to be confirmed what the output is on the official adapter. I doubt it will be as easy as plugging it into any USB adapter you have lying around the house. In theory a 12W iPad adapter might be ok, but I very much doubt a 5W iPhone adapter would work with it.

        • +1 vote

          A standard 1amp iPhone charger works fine with the Classic NES. I'd be surprised if it were different for the SNES.

        • +2 votes

          The NES Classic only required a 5W AC adapter. Worked fine with any type (12W, 45W, etc.). I'd imagine it's the same for this SNES Classic.

        •  

          @Hasquarl: Oh cool, well that's great if that's the case. I still think any item required for a product to function should be included in the packaging as standard though.

        •  

          @Hasquarl:

          Yeah, I plug my NES Classic into the TV..

    • +7 votes

      This has been Nintendo's policy for a while (since later generations of the DS), and I totally agree with it. They reduce the cost of the console and make the adapter available for purchase. A lot of people already have lots of spare adapters lying around, and this is because every damn thing comes with a new one. The DS is a good example, because a lot of new DS purchasers already had one. It creates a lot of unneccesary e-waste, and more companies should do it. It obviously only works if, say the cost of the adapter is $20, that they reduce the price of the console by $20.

      •  

        With the DS it made sense because adapters from the previous generation were still compatible for those upgrading. Not all USB adapters are made the same which means even if you have one lying around the house it may not work with the SNES classic.

      • +1 vote

        It's stupid. And the 2ds xl includes an adaptor so they are going back against their theory with that console.

      •  

        I agree with the e-waste argument but there is no way in the world the adapter costs anywhere near $20 to Ninentdo. I read once that the cost of manufacture to consumer can often be sevenfold, so an additional adapter is probably worth a buck of two to Nintendo.

        •  

          Yeah I agree, I was just using $20 as an example, but the amount doesn't really matter as long as the same amount comes off the retail price of the console.

        • +2 votes

          @Zenyatta: Except it doesnt. It still costs the full price. You just dont get an adapter.

        •  

          @Orpheus: Probably, but the cost of the Snes is pretty damn reasonable

    • +5 votes

      A lot of new TVs have USB ports, so I imagine like the Chromecast, the SNES classic edition should work off those USB ports for power. Saves using another plug if you have a compatible TV.

      •  

        That will depend on the power output of those usb ports and the requirements of the snes though. I have an older tv that can only power usbs for watching tv shows/ movies but can't handle a HDD for instance.

    I have been checking all morning,waiting for EB games to list it.

    Got in quick,since the Nes mini was very popular and people missed out.

  •  

    So how does the payment work, $30 deposit now and when do you pay the balance? (sorry pre-order newbie)

    •  

      They take the $30 now
      when you pick up (or they ship) they charge the balance to your card

      •  

        I'm switching credit cards so I would have to pay the balance on a different card. I assume that wouldn't be a problem?

          Says u can pay in cash on pickup

        •  

          @woahxd:
          I just spoke to the store and they said it would be fine to pay the balance in cash prior to launch day, if it was a delivery order then that would be more difficult to finalise.

      Balance is due the week of release. This applies to all EB Games pre-orders.

      • +1 vote

        Emulating the N64 takes a lot more work and a lot more grunt. Even the RPi3 can't handle 99% of games at Nintendo's level of quality. I highly doubt there'll be a N64 Mini, esp at this price.

        • +2 votes

          it will happen, jsut maybe not for a whhile, and you're right, likely will be a bit more expensive. Honestly though, if it came with the best 20 games of N64 I'd happily pay $200, $250 if it came with 4 controllers.

        •  

          Does anyone else see the irony of needing a lot of computing power to emulate essentially an ancient computer?
          (I get the complexities of emulation, but I mean take a step back and think how silly that is from a resource/efficiency and technology cost pov)

          I don't think you do.

        •  

          @PainToad: I don't think you get the point then.

          In the end it has nothing to do with how hard emulation is, but the fact it's happening at all. Put it another way, where does the n64 sit in the terms of computing power by today's standards?
          It's like striving to improve phone cameras only for people to Instagram filter the hell out all the detail anyway.

        •  

          @dufflover:

          The difficulty with emulation isn't down to processing power. N64 emulation on a powerful x86 architecture system still isn't as fluid as what you would expect.

          Detail explanations are long and boring so I'll let Stackoverflow shed some light: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/471973/what-makes-buildi...

          @dufflover:

          where does the n64 sit in the terms of computing power by today's standards?

          Completely irrelevant.

          Raw power differences are only one factor. The other is how different the architecture is between systems.

  •  

    I know you can't predict future…

    but will this become a classic like the NES Mini?
    They're selling them at crazy prices now, like $250
