No way, it must of sold out in 5 minutes!

more scalpers

the ultimate goose chase this

I checked here 2 days ago.

I managed to get one at game in store before Christmas for my brothers son.

I want one myself but tbh Nintendo are taking the p**s with this. Might just buy an original on eBay, not sure I want to suport this console by Nintendo who are this incompetent.

Don't see this crap from Xbox or PlayStation and I'm pretty sure demand is way higher.

You could set up a full Retropie setup for pretty much the same cost if you wanted. I did it recently.

Hopefully they honour it last time they had stock just before xmas they cancelled everybodys with an apology.

Thanks for that, looks like fun and a nice project I could sit down and do with our teenage son, if he's not to busy on Pokemon that is.
Cheers

I did this with a Pi Zero as per the instructions here for about £30. I could have done it for less but some stuff I had to get in a rush to be ready for Christmas. Much better than a NES Mini in that I can have thousands of games if I want and use pretty much any controller. Currently we're using the old Wiimotes which work really well for NES games. I've also got a few SNES games on there but the Pi Zero doesn't handle anything more modern than that.

You should really look at upgrading, if you can. I picked up a 128gb micro SD from Amazon this week for £24 and put Rey's Attract Mode [Video] on it. It really is a beautiful setup for RetroPie (I think it's 127.7gb in total).

Currently using it with a Dualshock 3 controller. Love it

Honestly guys it's not worth the money, I sold mine to Cex a few days after getting it, 5 games worth playing on it, controls are very sensitive, buy a WII and remote and download from store.

​Or an android tv box for about £30 and emulate it with everything under the sun, and added bonus of Kodi.

Having read the comments I can agree that with a pi or pi3 you can have everything from Atari and Commodore to SNES, Megadrive, arcade machines, Neo Geo and PS1 games all emulated perfectly using retropie and emulationstation and attract mode front ends. If you are looking to game in a major way that's the most effective and rewarding way, however, with the mini nes I think you're buying into the heritage and acknowledging the cult status of the console and how it symbolises an era in gaming. It may not be the most economical purchase in comparison to a pi and thousands of games, but it definitely is a nice piece of memorobilia for a gamer and at £50 for 30 games, most of which are classics, you can't really go wrong. Plus all that and it's cheaper than Zelda on the Switch!!! When they bring out the SNES version I am buying two!!!

Or whack them on the Switch when it comes out.

There was also stock at Very, today but never got the email alert
