Nintendo releases the NES Classic for everyone hankering for a simpler time.
Today, Nintendo will drop the dearly desired NES Classic, and we'd like to say with certainty such an occasion would never have happened without the beautiful cesspool of nostalgia we call the internet. It's a pretty amazing product, with more than 30 iconic NES games pre-loaded into its system. Some of those games include "The Legend of Zelda," "Super Mario Brothers," and "Donkey Kong." And it's only $60!
Slated to be sold in select stores (only in-store), and apparently there are already shortages. Here's the statement from Nintendo:
"The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system is a hot item, and we are working hard to keep up with consumer demand. There will be a steady flow of additional systems through the holiday shopping season and into the new year. Please contact your local retailers to check product availability. A selection of participating retailers can be found at www.Nintendo.com/nes-classic."
If you can get your hands on this baby, it's definitely worth it.
