SNES Mini

Recommended Posts

I really hope scalpers get fucked over by this release. Would be fantastic if Nintendo exceeded all expectations and these were actually in continued plentiful supply. We can but dream I suppose.

I'm beyond gutted to miss this one. The NES one was so easy to buy on pre-order!

 

Hopefully I'm online during one of these 5 minute windows to get one. I've a feeling these are going to disappear off the face of the Earth in short order.

You gave game £50, and they gave you nothing except a promise.

 

Very true! Trying to use up my Store credit and I just get sucked in deeper!

How comes Nintendo stopped production of the NES mini? It was still heavily in demand, do they not like money? 

 

Am I the only one who liked the aesthetics of the US SNES? When it comes to US console design abominations it hardly compares to the Turbo Grafx.

And I thought people who preferred the grey Switch over the neon were bad.

CEO Reggie Fils-Aime later stated that "We just didn't anticipate how incredible the response would be", but they had to discontinue the unit as "we've got a lot going on right now and we don’t have unlimited resources."

Quote

According to Eurogamer, the discontinuation of the NES Classic was in part to transition the production line to a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) Classic system designed similarly to the NES Classic but featuring games from the SNES, to be launched later 2017; at this point in time, in April 2017, Nintendo had not confirmed this information

I think you need to book out blocks of time in Foxconn or whoevers schedule in advance so they can produce what you need. I suppose they had booked out a limited time for what they thought would be a niche product. Hopefully those hellholes in china are pumping out this new snes like they are iPhones.

I don't see why they're talking about only making this one until the end of the year though. The NES was probably a victim of bad forecasting, but for the SNES they can probably just keep going until they need to start cranking out the N64 one next year

Surely though Nintendo would be able to start production of more NES Minis if they wanted to. They are a huge company. Especially with this Mini Snes I'm sure interest would be even higher. Makes little sense to me.

I'm certain the NES Mini will return, possibly with a slightly changed set of games or two pads or something to differentiate it from last years model. Nintendo know there's shitloads of money on the table.

 

So it won't happen who am I kidding lol

It'll just be a cardboard surround for your TV and a special DVD/Bluray,

with a Super Mario Land speed run on repeat.

Nintendo can be so village.  They could sort shit like this out by working with the right people.

If Nintendo were clever you would get a code in the box to unlock the games on the now (when snes mini is out) launched VC store in Switch - great sell up opportunity and if course never gonna happen :(

 

US snes defi has a place in my heart, it's obv not as pretty as the EU/JP unit but I still love it and was the last Snes I owned - the concave buttons are better even if the colors were not.

 

Im going to have to pick up a Snes again - easily my fave console and never going to be surpassed as it was the one I grew up with and had so many hours playing with mates on :wub:

Managed to get a pre-order at GAME and Amazon within a few minutes of seeing Nintendo's facebook announcement...didnt even wait to see what the price was or what games were on it.

 

Was going to keep one sealed and play the other one but my best mate was too slow, so he's having it off me. Only charging him an extra £50. He's well chuffed, but that's what mates are for I suppose.

 

I paid £99 on eBay for the NES Classic as soon as I saw the discontinuance notice, it was £200 within an hour from the same seller.

 

You gotta be fast guys!

The nes and famicom mini was hackable to add games so it's possible this will be the same.

I'm on board with a gameboy remake as well as an n64 one with wifi so we can play multiplayer online and the ability to use 4 player local. We can dream.

Same here. I presume it'll change at some point. Although some people have pointed out it's a separate listing and speculated that Amazon might use that to get around the price match? I doubt it tho, let's see what happens.

Says the guy who got his Mini NES 6 months late for twice the price.

 

These sold out in like 5 minutes half way through a work day and, frankly, whilst I'm still hopeful of finding one at all you posting how you're so benevolent as to sell your mate a second for only an extra £50, with sage advice to "be fast guys"... I don't know man, seems pretty shitty.
