    I say bring it on. No publishing fees, no platform limitations, can sell these suckers forever and ever, can be used as stocking fillers for anyone without having to worry about what system they're running, etc, etc.

    Especially useful *because* they're true plug-and-play nostalgia devices, and there are ex-gamers out there who gave up on modern games, and they can use these without pre-requisite hardware.

    I love these things. Bring on the march of the minis!

    Love the design of the japanese version. Combination of colors, mould design, the way gamepads look, the logo.

    Awesome, this is on my list for sure.

    Not sure if I am a fan of the mini's, I have a disturbing hature of frame skips.

    Is hature even a word??
