9 Things The Know About The NES Classic Edition

If you planned on picking up one of these bad boys I have only two words for you GOOD LUCK! Nintendo released their first batch of the classic NES consoles and they are completely sold out everywhere. That is unless you want to buy an overpriced one on eBay. Here’s what we know as of right now:

1. It has 30 original games pre-installed on it.

This alone has made anyone who loves video games wanting one.

2. You cannot use your old games on this console.

Unfortunately, this console will only be able to play the games that it came preloaded with. That shouldn’t be much of a problem since it has the best games ever made in history on it.

3. It has original looking controllers.

Although you cannot plug in your old controllers they came out with the same design as the original. Only issue we have heard of is that the cord is a bit on the short side.

4. Some really cool games on this console.

-“Balloon Fight”
-“Bubble Bobble”
-“Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest”
-“Donkey Kong”
-“Donkey Kong Jr.”
-“Double Dragon II: The Revenge”
-“Dr. Mario”
-“Final Fantasy”
-“Ghosts ‘n Goblins”
-“Ice Climber”
-“Kid Icarus”

5. And some even better games…

-“Kirby’s Adventure”
-“Mario Bros.”
-“Mega Man 2”
-“Ninja Gaiden”
-“Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream”
-“Super C”
-“Super Mario Bros.”
-“Super Mario Bros. 2”
-“Super Mario Bros. 3”
-“Tecmo Bowl”
-“The Legend of Zelda”
-“Zelda II: The Adventure of Link”

6. With everyone excited about the release people line up yesterday in hopes of getting one.

That’s right! They had lines of people outside the shops hoping to get one.

7. It seems like it’s Black Friday already!

People lined up like it was the newest console or Black Friday! I think it had a lot to do with the HDMI connection that enables gamers to play their beloved childhood games on their HDTV.

8. Some bought it just to resell it for a lot more money.

They may be onto something here! If Nintendo doesn’t get more of these in the stores ASAP people will be in bidding wars over these for Christmas.

9. Some shops were sold out before they even opened.

Unfortunately, with the preorders, a lot of stores ran out of the console before even opening for the day.
