someone is going to be making some

money as these are doing £100+ on eBay

would be a good valentine's present or Easter present.

called into one of their shops in NI and made some enquiries earlier in the week. deliveries to a lot of stores have been delayed by a week to 10 days as the stores had to complete their post-Xmas stock takes. Find out the delivery day for your local store next week and you might get lucky as they do expect some to be delivered (in the same way as Lego Batman Tumbler showed up in Smyths last year when it was discontinued and out of stock everywhere else)

The excitement has died off now . Will be overtaken by the Switch in a few weeks.

I currently have 590 games on mine.

I'm a bit confused as hacking it is essentially the same as using an emulator on a laptop/tablet with 'unlimited' storage?...

All have cover art and all have the 4 save states.
The nes mini has 512mb of storage and the entire nes library clocks in at a smidge under 220mb.

If today's rumours are true then the price is about to get jacked up even higher.

"The NES Mini has certainly been a hit with fans and retro gaming enthusiasts but it has certainly been hard to get hold of. NeoGAF member Roarer works for a large Scandinavian retailer and has heard from Nintendo and their distributor Bergsala that the system is no longer being produced and will be phased out by the Kyoto based company. Roarer says that whilst production has ended they will still be getting a few more shipments. The last shipment should arrive in April or May and then that’s it. Good luck getting hold of one if you haven’t managed to do so yet."

Managed to reserve a couple of these in Doncaster Argos Wheatley Hall Road a couple of days ago. Picked them up tonight and they had a couple more in stock!
