Most my childhood tech was thrown out by my parents many years ago.. fortunately i still have my SNES + MKII + DKC + Super Punch Out and 2 controllers. With modern connectivity requirements i dare say i'm still better off with the new SNES Mini. Missed out on the NES mini, definitely not missing out on this!

A 1 per household policy from the vendors would be nice. Although cheeky dickheads will just ship one to their parents/siblings house.

they are live now - bagged one.

tempted to buy a second one. $119

they do have a 1 per customer limit, as if ppl won't be just ordering multiples though - more profitable than bitcoins!

I have half of my favourite SNES games still working on my GBA or my DS.

If they re-release the N64 in a couple of years, wow, that's a different story. Wireless controllers, Turok 2 + Perfect Dark.

That thing went from 8000 to 20000 yen for months on Amazon, its back to around 9000 now, but the controllers are so small they kill your hands.

What's with this note underneath the image?

*Please note: an AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging.
So you also have to buy this adapter separately.
