So excited for this… the only weird thing is I don't understand why it hasn't been available on pre-order yet. It's not even available for pre-order on Best Buy.

I'll plug it in to the basement TV. It doesn't have anything else plugged into it right now except a DVD player and the DirecTV, and maybe @NatalieB will get a kick out of it with her friends.

I've been waiting on this myself!! I still have my old NES but it's got issues. I ordered some parts to fix it, but they did not help

RC Pro Am, forgot about that one! Great game. :-)

So looking forward to this. I'll probably play with this more than the Karma GoPro drone.

RC Pro AM was awesome!

On a side note,I am actually thinking of getting one of the racing drones like on the DRL with the goggles and what not. I talked with a friend about them yesterday. He owns an RC shop. They race them about 5 minutes from my house every weekend.

That's pretty cool and not too bad at $59.95.

I still have my old one and it still works.  Pull it out every once in a while and play all three Mario's.  It was a great system back in the day.

Cool how this one has all the Mario's, Donkey Kong , Contra, Punch Out and Galaga.

Wow, Christmas 1987 all over again!

IMO the best gaming console of all time... I have 2 of the original NES systems and 2 dozen or so games, which unfortunately only work intermittently... I am VERY excited for this, which is 1. smaller, 2. more reliable, and 3., has an HDMI hookup.

I'm planning to order it tomorrow and I might even gift one to my brother.

The best one was the SuperNes.

Depending on how the NES remake sells they probably will do the same for Super NES. I know SEGA is making one for their console. Luckily for me I still have my Super NES, I break it out every once in awhile. Still need to pick up a couple more games for it.

Nostalgia anyone?

I think it would wear off though after 10 minutes.. the games we have are just so much better it's not even close.

still cool though.

Play a lot less of them now, but I agree most of the new stuff is much better. There are some exceptions, like the ones I listed.

Those old games are built on the arcade format where you get 3 "lives" and 3 "continues". They were easy to learn, hard to play, and designed to suck up quarters. The resemblance to modern games is purely superficial. It's like comparing miniature golf and real golf.
