51 available and I got two of them after waiting in line from 9pm to 8am...

GFYRITPFNMEOTAMPWILFH...

Even though I finally got two of them, kcolg30 does not approve of your supply and demand tactics...

No wonder why people emu on the pie. They anit got no time fo dat.

My only advice to you NINTENDO people is don't F.UP again the supply and demand when you introduce the next version.


I hope your Switch fails just like the U.

11 hours...? C'mon man. You don't have to have it RFN. You could have waited a couple of weeks and walked in anytime you wanted and pulled'em off the shelf.

No kidding. But who am I to judge how someone wastes their time?

Nintendo didn't fuck up. This was intentional.

How were they supposed to know this many people would be interested in their shitty PIE EMU. Seriously Nintendo has always be some what conservative on first batches. Even Xbox and ps4s were had to get on day 1.

That said I got one day 1 after seeing people waiting in line at target, ran to GameStop bought one and sold it on eBay for $206. Neck beard style

Not likely, it's the same thing with every console launch and takes about 6 months before they are regularly seen on store shelves.

Nintendo NES mini
Mini NES preloaded with 30 games. No duck hunter no way to add games. $65.

My other thought was it was intentional to drum up their name for the switch release. Still think they didn't know most remakes like this have been complete fails ie: the Sega one

I have to imagine someone will figure out how to hack it and put every NES game on one.

Let me guess, you waited all night so you could resell them on Amazon for $300.

You know, there are these things called jobs that could make you a lot more money than that.

My understanding is that they are only making it for a limited time. It is not like they are going to make them for years like the original NES. This is a niche product. They are focused on the SWITCH. If
i did not get it now, it most likly will not be avalaible next year.

Shit... Like $400 for 11 hours work ain't bad at all. Better than a lot of "real" jobs.
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 9:19:00 AM EST
People have already taken them apart and said it wasn't possible. Plus its just better all around to build your own pitendo. To each his own though. I'm glad Nintendo made a hit console,
they've been struggling.

I have a real job. However I am on vacation until the 3rd...

I had some free time to spare. And no I am not going to sell them. Both are now connected via HDMI upstairs and down stairs...

They didn't mess up supply. How else would there be any demand to pay for a game emulator you can legally download for free from multiple sources? 

I bet 2/3rds of the people who buy them will play for 5 minutes and suddenly remember how crappie most NES games were...

30 games?  If it were 300 games, I might be interested.

On a serious note, which controller are you guys using on this new system. I am interested in either a Wi-Fi controller or some other comparable type controller that has a longer cable. Also if I have to go the extension route which extensions seem to work best.

they'll be readily available after Christmas
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 7:42:10 PM EST
I just don't understand why you people are getting so upset.  Go to Amazon, buy this, and you'll have every NES, SNES, Genesis, etc game ever made.

There's nothing to "build."

The only assembly is to flash retropie onto an micro sd card, put the card in the pi board, and lay the board into the case. Boom. Assembled.

The nostalgia wore off for me after 1 FUCKING HOUR. I have not touched mine since the day I got it.
