Added 300 games to mine and got bored within a few days.
The original NES Mini was novelty that Nintendo phased out in a way that surprised many as they were scrambling for stock. You can guarantee that they have given so many advance notice of end of production of the SNES mini and they have shipped so many more units than the NES already that anyone at all that wanted one has one now.

The novelty of the Mini gaming units have died down considerably now Nintendo have launched two versions a lot with god knows how copy cats versions are out there now also that it could be decades not years befoe you get a return like you are expecting.

Speculating on console mass produced in the millions rather than keeping in bank is far from as shrewd as you seem to make out but the sheer certainty you believe in your assertions is admirable if not perhaps misplaced

Worth buying 10?

Worth buying 10?


Short term no, long term yes.
Demand isn’t as high as the NES mini but ultimately these are still relatively limited run machines, so when Nintendo stop making them, the future collectors will want mint untouched ones for their collection.
This time next year, prices will go up, maybe sooner, for now though if you’re looking to “flip” them for a quick buck, that ship has sailed.

The flaw in your theory is so many people will have the same idea, then the market will be saturated with mint sealed consoles.

Not really, because they aren’t being produced in the same number as say the PS4 or Nintendo Switch for example.
Yes, many people are “hoarding” them and will want to sell in years to come, but there will always be new waves of collectors to which this will appeal.
I personally did both options when they were first released.
Sold 4 or 5 for nice profit, then kept the rear safely in the cupboard for years to come.
There was a huge spike on the resale/collectors market when Nintendo pulled the plus on the NES mini, the same I believe will happen with this.
But still, for the future collector, if you can afford to buy 10, £650 investment will likely double in a couple of years.
Better than putting it into a bank and if you decide to play one or five as a gift in the meantime, they’re pretty cool little things all the same and don’t take up bundles of room in the cupboard.
If you have a Wii, or even a broken Wii where the disc drive no longer works, stick home brew on it then you can get all these games. You'll probably get bored quite quickly, super Mario kart looks dreadful though, not sure if it's any smoother on this though?

I was heavily invested in collectors editions and press kits for around 5 years - gaming collecting has fads - long ones and short.

Thing like this in 12 months time wont be worth double the value.
Thanks op. Just managed to get a price match from Amazon.
Nobody said 12 months...
I said “will likely double in a couple of years” which if production ceases mid 2018 as stated by Nintendo, then it’s likely that this will come into fruition, maybe a little longer.
I don’t think £65 is a large outlay for something that’s going out of production soon.
Certainly will hold value for now and then in the coming years is only going to increase if left untouched.

Good luck.


Fortunately I won’t need luck, but appreciated all the same.
The crates of retro will also help in the coming years

Apparently you can play games on them ....
Good price.But it's not that good.2 hours of play and it was
sitting in the box for 2 months.The only saving grace was i put the whole back catalogue of SNES games on it with the whole mega drive collection and 2000 mame arcade classics via a flash drive and adapter,with a great bit of software,it's now being played on most days with the kids also loving it.As a stand alone console with just 21 games I feel it's not worth it.
Some pretty good speed runners in here if they got through the 21 preloaded games in 2 hours..
