A new and smaller version of the classic Super Nintendo Entertainment System is coming in September of this year. The gaming system will feature around 20 or so games and the price tag will be around $80 bucks!

Will you buy one of these new sytems?

Does anyone still have their original SNES?

I can't help but think (and this is not to put a damper on the party) that this is going to be like the NES classic. Grossly understocked, with few people actually able to get their hands on the thing. Most of them getting bought by scalpers who flip them for 3-4 times the MSRP. Apparently pre-orders already sold out and I bet most of them aren't purchases by fans, but rather from people who will immediately resell at a nice profit. Already there are stories about exactly that. Nintendo...seriously. Adequately stock your hardware.

We still have working SNES consoles, and my 3DS can run SNES virtual console games.

Sorry about the broken link originally in my first post up above. :lol: The link has been fixed now and a few more links added as well.

I also hope they make enough of these new gaming consoles so that everyone that wants one can find one easily and without having to pay an outrageous price for it, etc. We also still have our original SNES and last I checked it worked perfectly, so I probably won't be buying one of these new ones. Still, I am happy they are having it for the people who don't already have a SNES.

Sure taht a lot of those machines will be find some time after at high prices (and the price will be higher and higher if Nintendo decides to stop the production one day !).

Just a thought but if anyone wanted an original SNES, they might be able to find one of those on ebay. I haven't looked, but ebay usually has anything anyone could ever want! Might be something to think about if you can't find one of these mini classic SNES's. Of course, there is no telling what price you may have to pay on that site for one of these original gaming systems either, if you can even find one, that is. And, if you did find one of the gaming systems there, it probably would not include any of the games to play on it. Something to think about, I guess.

I still have a super Nintendo here but I don't know if it functions anymore ! I think the answer is yes ! :)

But I prefer to play on an emulator : as I can save whenever I want ! :rofl:

SNES is also pretty common stock at retro game stores, if you're lucky enough to have one in your area. Usually they're not that expensive, at least in my experience - maybe around $50, depending on what accessories/controllers it's bundled with. A lot of the games will run you more than the console itself.

It's in fact not very hard to find super nes material consoles and gamepads ! And it's often more or less cheap :)
