So I am having a bit of a dilemma…
Nintendo released a miniature version of the Super Nintendo on the 29th of September 2017. The Super Nintendo is my favorite console of all time and of course I became interested in this tiny cute console. In America this console was on sale for $70 dollars (£70 in England) which wasn’t a bad price in my opinion. When I checked the price in other countries I found out that this tiny console was charged 3 times more. $200 dollars, $200 freaking dollars, yes that’s insane. You can actually buy the original Super Nintendo on eBay and other retro sites for less. I do actually own the original Super Nintendo as well. So in the back of my head I was thinking “Is it worth getting it for $200 dollars?” The answer was of course no but then a voice came in my head saying “but it’s limited edition”…I hesitated once again.
I did miss the opportunity of getting the NES Classic Mini and I do regret that. I hate having regrets, especially when it comes to video games.
Sigh, so did I end up getting it? Yes I did. Would I recommend getting this fellow console? Yes and no. If you’re young and living in a generation with the newer consoles then yes, I don’t see why not if you want to give it a go. Although, if you’re a 90’s kids like me (or older) then I would suggest you to get the actual original SNES. Why? Because the cartridges gives that retro feeling to it. So worth it.
Why did I get it? Because I am an idiot…and I love Limited Edition products. Although I must say, I would not have gotten it if I didn’t already own the console because then I’d rather just get buy the real deal.
Unboxing post will happen when I receive it.
