Introducing The Nintendo Classic Mini

Hey 90s kids, put down your Pokemon Go for a second and check out this mini-Classic NES that Nintendo just announced. It's looks just like the original, except that it's all small and stuff. It comes pre-loaded with 30 NES classics like Zelda II (LOL), a retro controller that works with the Wii U and a nice modern HDMI output. All for about $60.

It's a terrible deal. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and all but my entire RetroPi build cost $30 and it plays hundreds of Nintento, Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis games. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about playing retro games on retro systems, there's no emulator that perfectly captures that experience BUT this new NES is just that, an emulator. If you're going to get an emulator just buy a raspberry PI and really get your moneys worth.

Or don't. I mean if the fact that this thing is super cute is enough for you go ahead and buy one. I probably haven't used my RetroPi in about a year, sure playing old games is fun for a couple hours but the nostalgia dries up pretty fast. At least with one of these Classic Mini's you're not going to spend half a day setting it up.
