I want this - http://www.columbuscircle.co.jp/prod...8-356038&ca=22







Plays Famicom carts and comes with 112 preinstalled games (probably knockoffs but might be some genuine ones in there)

Just saw this fly past on Twitter. Such a casual way for Nintendo to announce it.

Good on them for bringing it back. Let's hope they've changed their mind as to it's short-term appearance, and keep it a long running product. Even if there are shortages, at least people will know they can expect stock at some point.

Edit:

Pretty interesting to see Nintendo acknowledging the eBay vultures directly. Not something they'd normally do. Maybe they've finally realised they're letting profits slip through their fingers.

they were leaving so much money on the table, end of the day they'd have to answer to their shareholders I'd say who are probably asking - why are we not selling these to our loyal customers?
