That's awesome. I already have an all-in-one emulator box with the Nvidia Shield but I would love something like this just for nostalgia. Decent price too.

So awesome.

I'm more of an SNES dude, so not for me, but still great. Controller works with Wii U VC too.

Yeah, honestly, NES does not appeal to me (born in '88).

I wonder if a SNES will ever follow.

I hope the emulation is good. The Sega Genesis one a few years ago was apparently crap because games were off a bit like the speeds were a little different and the music was off-key.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Really wish this one would play more gams than just the NEC, would be a great emulator for people that didn't want to buy Wii / Wii U just to play old games.

Would be really awesome if this is their version of the PS TV too.

if it's the same technology as their Virtual console then it's about as perfect as it gets. I don't think I've ever dealt with shotty NES emulation but their SNES and N64 VC stuff is far smoother than any emulator

Sweet. Gonna buy one.
Great list of games.. but it's missing the original Contra and Mega Man 3.

$60 (or $70 CAD?) for the hardware and 30 games is actually pretty good when you consider the VC versions of these games are $4.99 eac. It would cost around $150 to purchase all of these games individually on Wii U or 3DS. It would probably make sense for them to lower the VC prices but Nintendo isn't in the business of making sense so whatever

I hope they sell the controller by itself. That's all I want.

Yes, they are selling the controller separately for $9.99 USD.
