On Friday I went to Gamestop and picked up my SNES classic for $80. I was pleasantly surprised to see Nintendo came out with a pretty good amount of the systems compared to the Nintendo classic system released in 2016 which was hard to find and selling for 3x on the black market.
At a glance
"Nintendo had been criticized for the lack of availability of the NES Classic Edition, of which they sold 2.3 million units between November 2016 and April 2017, having not been prepared for the console's popularity.
With the Super NES Classic Edition, Nintendo originally said that although they were prepared to produce significantly more Super NES Classics than NES Classics, they would be halting production at the end of 2017. Due to overwhelming demand, Nintendo changed their plans, with Nintendo CEO Reggie Fils-Aimé not only confirming the continued production of the system throughout 2018, but also confirming the return of the NES Classic, which many people were unable to get after people bought masses of them and resold them for much more than their MSRP."
The 21 titles in the SNES Classic in my opinion represent some of the best games of the generation, but arguably it is missing key titles like NBA Jam, Earthworm Jim, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 & TMNT 4 - Turtles in Time.
Anything with Mario in it automatically gets my vote. Definitely go out and get a Super Nintendo classic IF you can get your hands on one, Super Mario World alone is worth the $80. At the very least the NES Classic and the SNES Classic will hold us over until holiday season next year when the rumored N64 classic edition is released. Enjoy yourselves.
I am a young, go getter and I am very curious, a goal of mine is to learn something new every day.
