Yay. I got one. Walmart in Hyde park in London Ontario had a couple today. Randomly saw a guy buying one and I asked if they had more. Yup 2 left.

For anyone who used the latest Hakchi2 mod, can it still be used if the system has been modded with the first version of the file? In other words, is the process the same where it just overrides the previous mod? I also heard Game Genie codes work on this? True, Untrue?

Thanks guys.

Yep, it just overwrites the first version, worked just fine

Now possible to add 700 games:

I have not tried it myself.

Also ...you can add retro-arch and play gameboy, genesis games and I believe even SNES games on the mini NES classic.

Wonder if its possible to modify the dashboard on this yet?....maybe even change the sound too.

I wonder what happened here.

It obviously wasn't artificial scarcity. Did they just really not expect that demand? (let's be honest though, 2 million is a large number)

There has to be an issue with a part as well that's not allowing them to make more, faster. Unless the Switch has taken over their manufacturing.

Anyone bought from Amazon in Europe (either Spain, Germany, France or UK)? They seem to have regular restocks, particularly Spain.

Yes but the frame rate will be different, so if you are purist you'll hate it (notice it). :)

Can you image if they made 2 million and no one cared?

They'd be buried in a landfill in Nevada somewhere ... I was actually surprised at the demand. I think Christmas really fueled the mania, and now it has carried over.

I can fault Nintendo for many things, but I genuinely believe this time they just mis-guessed the demand.

Not true.

Despite being branded differently between North America and the PAL region, both regions distributed identical hardware and software. All the games included were based on their North American localisations and run at 60 Hz in all regions. The console's user interface supports up to eight languages; this does not change the language in-game.

Really, they didn't change the FPS for the Europeon model? Then that's cool! Buy it and just use any good quality USB power adapter :)
