What is it with Nintendo and refusing to supply required power adapters?

I always read this title as "The Nintendo Classic Mimi"

Local Cex are now selling these (secondhand) for £125. Chancers.

It seems that Nintendo have stopped production on this to concentrate all their efforts on the Switch.

But then I've seen a rumour this morning that the SNES mini is on the way. This should come as no surprise as I've been seeing the rumours ever since the NES mini was announced. Anyway, if it does go ahead I would heartily recommend ordering one. The NES mini is fetching silly second hand prices so if you want one.. order one.

Have you modified your NES mini to put extra games on it or are you keeping it as is?

I'm keeping it as is. I have a modded Wii connected to my telly that can play any NES game and can also use the NES mini controller so there's no point really.

I'd like to keep the NES Mini in original condition. One day, it'll be worth a fortune and when I'm long gone... my kids will be able to throw it in a skip for me.

Either way, it's going in the skip... right?

There's no way that this is worth £180 but CEX seem to disagree.

Someone is selling knock-offs of these in Boscombe market for £40. Very tempted as they come with two controllers and 600 games…

That's genius. I assume it's an older model Pi inside, as £40 is pushing the margin of profit a bit

I've seen several YouTube videos of these and I would approach with caution. If they're the same models, the 600 games are full of knock offs and duplicated games. Still, for £40 I'm sure you could have some fun with one.

Yeah, the emulation can be incredibly variable. You’ve got a big old PC at home I’m sure you could do better with that than waste £40.

Have you got a link handy? The only one I can find looks like a white fan heater or something.

This is probably why I didn't pull the trigger in the end.

Picked up a SNES Mini recently, but not had time to play it as I'm addicted to Horizon Zero Dawn. Really looking forward to getting some time on it though.

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would buy the legit version so buying a knock off seems like madness.

How so? It's a lovely little machine with some great games on it. Well worth the £50 in my opinion.

Bamba doesn't like games except those released in the last 18 months, the superficial graphics whore that he is

Seems odd to me to buy a knock off when you probably already own a bunch of devices that can run the same games.

It's a box that does what loads of other hardware you already own already does, except worse because you can't freely add whatever games to it that you want. It's for weird nostalgia fetishists.

Nah, I reckon it's ace. It's a nice little package that's full of Nintendo loveliness.

This forum is a mix of retro fans and those who look on retro with an odd expression of bemusement. I suspect Bamba joins me in the latter category.

It's basically a form of re-enactment.
