Are You Ready For Some Mini-SNES Action?

Hot off the heals of it's very successful (and nearly impossible to find) NES Classic, Nintendo has announced that this September they will start selling a mini-SNES. $80 gets you the system, two controllers and 21 SNES Classics including: Super Metroid, Super Mario World, F-Zero, Star Fox and a previously unreleased Star Fox 2.

I'm a bit torn on the whole thing. For $80 I could put together 3 Retro PIs and load up pretty much every SNES title every made for free. Of course as cool as the Retro PI is it never quite feels like the "real thing" and I'm assuming with Nintendo's stamp of approval this is going to feel pretty genuine. I don't know, this Christmas I either want to pick up a Xbox One or a Nintendo Switch, I'm probably better off saving my cash. However if you don't want to go through the hassle of putting together a Retro PI, I'd probably jump on this. Those classic SNES titles are heads and tails better than the NES classics. Excitebike is fun to play for like 10 minutes, but the other day I put in a good 3-4 hours with my son on Legend of Zelda a Link To The Past.

Ah, why even bother thinking about it? This thing will probably be impossible to find in stores and getting one on Ebay will cost like $200. If I ever run across one maybe I'll grab it and try to flip it on ebay myself.
