Everything sounds good but just wish it came with the 6 button controllers like other regions. Would come in handy with more titles when this gets hacked instead of needing to spend more to get them.
Officially licensed Retrobit 6 button controller:

I'm getting the 8 button clear blue (which is more like the original Sega Saturn controller):

The only thing that might hurt this system a bit is that they released collection sets a few times over the years on different systems. But I doubt it will ever drop to the extent the psone did. This actually has hype, actually has good reviews, etc. The psone originally had hype before the games were announced. Then they had only people wanting to cancel preorders and wondering what Sony was doing choosing such a lacking game lineup. Then it had bad reviews on top of it. Sony dropped the ball.
Sony really did blow it with the PSOne mini. What a disaster.

As long as they don't build too many of these - they should sell just fine. May see some discounts again Black Friday. Lowest price so far is $79.99.

Like another poster said, another issues is use. I have played my NES mini maybe 10 times. I'm buying the Sega but people who don't play their previous retro consoles may not shell out for these.

Guess they changed it - I have mine on pre-order from amazon since e3, and nothing yet :(
I also pre-order from Amazon and just got a notification saying it'll be delivered Sept 19

Exactly what I mean by needing to spend more to get them. $20 USD each x 2 is more than half the price of the mini. I guess we can hope they get discounted at some point...

Got my Amazon $80 order delivered an hour ago. They used a bubble envelope instead of a box.

you can still get these fairly easily unlike the nintendo systems, and probably will have no issues during xmas either. Excited for mine, it's also out for delivery!

Mine got delivered today from Walmart. I don't even remember ordering it but I guess I was under typical RFD effect when i ordered - Buy now thing later LOL

On a serious note, it is still BNIB and if someone wants it in Mississauga (Erin Mills/Thomas St), I am willing to give it out at CP ($79.99 + tax).
If not, this is going back to Walmart this weekend.

These things will be $29.99 in no time. Mini console fatigue is in full force
Not to mention "how many times can you play the same old games over and over?" - I have the PS2 collection, the PSP collection, the PS3 and XB360 collections, the PS4 collection... my God, enough is enough and I really hoped the mini-console would supply a few classics, but with the majority being new, unreleased titles (which there are a TON). I a not paying $100 just for World of Illusion, Landstalker, Light Crusader, Alisia Dragoon, and the Monster World games.
