Flesh is power boy. When you're playing Nintendo, you're playing flesh. THAT IS POWER!

So got a second controller (hard as hell to find), and then my wife promptly kicked my ass over Dr Mario. I need a Tree of Woe.

Look at it this way, Sairus - you have a wife who plays classic Nintendo. Other men would give one of their less favorite limbs for such a thing.

I'm waiting until I can actually get a tv before blowing money on this. Why we haven't gotten to the point where you can hook these things up to your computer via USB is beyond me.

My friends found one - it's cute!  But it also kinda reminded me why I got bored with NES games.

 

"Pixel Perfect" mode looks fantastic though, and the Wii Classic Controller works with it!  Home button and everything!

post #111 of 288

I still have a working NES. Maybe I'll just play that instead. Problem is the save batteries in those old games (like Zelda) are long dead.

post #112 of 288
Yeah, that is a pain. You can replace them, but it involves soldering. (And you'll need to dig up a particular security bit just to get the damn cartridge open.)

Does your monitor not have multiple hdmi inputs?  If not, just get a 15 dollar hdmi switch from Amazon and hit a button when you want to change the monitor feed from pc to nintendo.

Contemplate your wife's video game hegemony over your household on the aforementioned Tree of Woe.

You tell me.  It's your specialty.

GameStop manager was telling me for any particular launch day they would order, say, 20-30 consoles. When placing initial orders for the NES Classic, Nintendo effectively told them, "You'll get nothing and like it!" Refused to tell them how many they were sending. They got 6 consoles last Friday.

 

And now they won't even tell them when they will get more (Even being coy about Black Friday).

Nintendo are kinda dicks.

post #126 of 288
They know that this will increase demand, those marketing geniuses.
post #127 of 288

Oh, Nintendo will see to it retailers have plenty for everyone before Christmas. It's just their methods (and attitude) that is so shitty.

"Now, let's make those fuckers cry by making sure they can't get a Nintendo."

For some dumb reason, this is being discontinued after next shipment.  I don't think I'll ever get to see one in person:

I'm not convinced that Nintendo shipped more than 100 of these and they just keep getting passed from scalper to scalper and that no one who actually wants one to play has ever gotten one.

post #130 of 288

I almost think Nintendo put it out there as a novelty item and didn't really think it was going to explode in such high demand. Their handling of it hasn't been awesome, but I don't think they intended on it being what it became.

 

No reason why they shouldn't just make more and sell them, though. They know they're leaving money on the table.

*sad trombone*

post #132 of 288
They're just mad that more people were interested in it than the WiiU.
post #133 of 288

Has to be the most stubbornly tone deaf hardware manufacturer in existence.  

post #134 of 288
I honestly don't think Nintendo really cared about selling this as a product, and was just using it as a way to market their brand - which had been out of the public eye somewhat thanks to the failure of the Wii U - in the leas up to the launch of the Switch.
post #135 of 288
They kind of bungled this one and I wouldn't be surprised if people turn more towards emulation out of frustration rather than expense.
post #136 of 288

Did anyone ever really expect it to stick around though?  A cute retro set, thirty classic NES games, and a controller, for $60 is probably going to beat whatever pricing Ninty will put on the Switch VC.

post #137 of 288

Keeping it scarce may not be the worst idea, they can just release a limited edition batch every christmas and people will lap it up.

 

I have no attachment, nostalgic or otherwise, to the NES. I'm not convinced the games are actually that good. A SNES version on the other hand I'd be highly tempted by, depending on what games get packaged with it...

Yes, I expect wildly popular profitable products to stick around.

Yep.  I've had no interest in getting one of these, but as soon as I saw the story that they were going away my knee-jerk reaction was "I HAVE TO FIND ONE OF THESE!".  Granted, that reaction lasted all of 10 seconds, but not everyone is as strong willed as I am.

For a company that's been in such sharp financial trouble recently, Nintendo apparently sure hates making easy money.

 

Time for the shareholders to fire this particular board of directors, methinketh.

post #142 of 288
The Switch has been sold out for 6 weeks straight, and they still have a bunch of cash from the Wii/DS era that they invested very wisely. When they had some quarterly losses last year, I read that they would be solvent until 2079 if they took comparable losses every quarter - without taking into consideration the massive value of their IP.

Reggie Fils-Aime has needed ousting for years.

From what I understand, Nintendo of America execs have almost no input on company decisions...including supply allocations for America. Which isn't really a defense of Reggie, I just don't know if they ousted him if anything would change.
post #145 of 288

Russian life was very sad, such was life in Leningrad

 

So their answer to making a popular product is...to not sell that product any more? Those assholes who're scalping this thing for $800 a pop on eBay should either give all that money to charity, or use it to choke themselves to death with.

 

post #146 of 288

I'm sure the Switch won't be discontinued for at least two years.

I gave in and ordered a raspberry pi preloaded with Retropie.  

 

I wanted one of the actual Nintendo products, but I am officially giving up.
