Typical nintendo false scarcity hijinks will likely ensue.

I'm getting sick of their ****.
I already have a few of these games as ROM's on my PC. I get a bit of use out of that emulator. So, if it gets stupid, I'll just be using my computer to get my Nostalgia kick. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind getting one of these.

Screw that, if I'm getting one, it's for me and my happiness.

But yes, I'm sure most parents will be the way you describe.

Listen, I don't think you can talk to me like that.

Sega Genesis/Super Nintendo was the last time anyone needed multiple 'current' gen consoles.

I was a Sega guy so I never owned the Super Nintendo.
I eventually had both. Genesis only had like 3-5 must own games.

I got in late with Phantasy Star, with the fourth game, but it was great.

Shining Force
Shining Force II

And I guess Sonic.

I think they had a Dune game that was pretty cool too. They were like the originators of having strategy based games, before PC dominated that.

I don't think this will make as big a splash as the NES Classic. I got a modded NES Classic included with all the SNES games I wanted. Since you can already preload all the SNES and Sega games you want on an NES Classic, many will continue to mod out their own consoles or pay extra for a modded console, rather than settle for 21 games.

Whatever you choose to do is definitely worth it though. It had been so long since I played Super Metroid that rediscovering the gameplay took me back to being a kid again.

I don't know. One of my co-workers has been F5'ing like 10 websites every day all day long. Europe already started with pre-orders, but the US hasn't. I think he actually already ordered one from France and will see if it works. I think it's USB powered, so it may.
