I love the fact it has Bubble Bobble, Galaga & Ghosts n' Goblins on there, not Nintendo games but complete classics in every sense.

According to pricing I have read it is going to be $60 for the machine and you can buy extra controller for another $10. Unfortunately for those of us in the UK they have decided to say 60 for the machine and an extra 10 for the controller!!

Mind you at that price you still can't complain really, works out at 2 per game essentially with a free box and controller to connect to the TV!!

Talking of TV this new machine has HDMI and it has save states so I am assuming that it is Nintendo's own emulator that they use on the WiiU & 3DS which is always a handy thing for the tricky parts on Super Mario Bros and Metroid etc.

Wait a minute, Pac Man? Nintendo licensed an unlicensed game that was a MAJOR legal battle between Tengen/Atari and Nintendo? Wow, Nintendo has REALLY matured.

I also wonder if we will get "Punch Out" or "Mike Tyson's Punch Out." But hey at least you get Doki Doki Panic (Mario 2).

Alright, enough throwing around trivia. It looks cool, and if I so picky about "I need to have the original physical release" (as well as already having 1/3 of them already), I would probably get this. It looks like it's going to be as authentic an experience as possible without the playing the actual original.

Not having played the NES really all that much it could be something that would interest me. The list of games are pretty sweet too! Definately a lot there to show off the machine. Ideally I'd prefer to own the original machine but the games are super expensive! So this could be the next best thing to having the authentic experience. Hopefully the quality is good as other machine like this haven't always been the best.

I never experienced the NES until Corey sent me the 2DS a while back, getting one of these with a load of decent games is a must to experience the titles first hand with a wired controller etc

Decided I am getting one for Christmas this year
