Lucky you when I add to basket it’s out of stock lol
Please, please, please consider a Raspberry Pi 3 instead this, what is essentially a Pi 3 minus all of the missing great games which defined the SNES, Turtles in Time and Chrono Trigger to name but 2 massive ones. I'm a Nintendo 'fan boy' yes, but I'm all for PLAYING the damn games and not just hording them like some Gollum.

Why? This is hackable and you can add all the games you want the same as was possible on the mini NES.

“As a nice surprise, it looks like Nintendo fully anticipated this, and left a note for tinkerers within the NAND! Hidden within the /etc directory is a file simply named "nineties", which contains:Enjoy this Mini,

Disconnect from the present, and

Go back to the nineties.”

edit: Not to mention - it looks fantastic!

And a damn sight less footery than messing with a Pi (for the layperson)! (disclaimer - I have a first gen Pi and a Pi 3 that I use for other purposes)

Plus the fact being a Nintendo fan boy, you shouldn't be suggesting like... Oh people don't buy original hardware, just get it illegally - Nintendo would be frowning at you

Also it's nothing like a raspberry pi
Well mine has already been delivered from Amazon for a reasonable £62.99. They'll be stock for £69.99 around for a while from Nintendo yet. As always they sell in drips and drabs when something new is released.
Yeah, COLd. I cleared ASDA and Smyths out you can buy mine on eBay later for £90

I don't say it's anything like a Raspberry Pi, rather a Raspberry Pi does what the SNES Classic does plus more, much, much more. Also, I couldn't in good conscience recommend buying the original hardware for the fact the price, cost of each game separately, and that hooking the thing up and getting a good picture out of a modern TV is a bit of a hassle.

You'll no doubt be able to hack it in the near future, but with limited storage you won't be able to access the full library of SNES games which a Pi allows.

Just to put things right. I don't advocate possessing roms illegally, the original hardware is always that much better and satisfying, however, should you not be able to get hold on a SNES Classic and are a fan of Nintendo, other than paying scalpers you should be better buying a Pi and getting the same exact experience and then some.

Just hope its not more rubbish lol, I keep buying things and never use them. Think I've used my PS4 Pro 6 times since I got it
Had two in Beeston (Nottingham) Grainger this morning. £80 tho.
My local Grainger Grames (Altrincham) are selling it for £180.00!
Don't pay for extortionate high price like this and avoid ebay prices.
