    I can recommend the 2DS XL, i think it's pretty much confirmed by everyone to be the best version of the DS on the market (i think that comes in SNES flavor)

That's highway robbery. Why does Nintendo let these thieves get away with this? I hate how people that didn't even want it went to buy it just to flip. I wanted one of these fuckin things and I'm still sour about it. I know it's my fault for not waking up at 7 or 8 am to go queue up in a line, but c'mon... it's 2017, we shouldn't need to fucking queue up in a line to buy an item. The item should be well stocked enough that anyone can go buy one at any given time of the day, not just the first 30 mins of the day. Urgh...

    EDIT: few hours have passed since I wrote that, and I need to vent... I don't have social media, so this is the only place I can write, i'm so angry right now. I called a 24 hrs shoppers drug mart (for those living in the states, think of like a Walgreens type of store) yesterday to see if they were going to have any copies for a midnight launch. Their computer said they had 3, but they never arrived and they anticipate them to arrive sometime on the 29th, the call was made on the 28th at 5pm ish.

    So, I wrote that option off... after work today, I was on my way home and I decided to call them, I was almost home and it was 9:45pm. I'm not sure what dawned on me to call, but I did... anyway, the lady said they got the 3 in and we're selling them at midnight. (why midnight on the 30th you ask? They printed their flyer out and the date was the 30th) anyway... long story short, when I called, she said they had 3 and there was only 1 person waiting and I better get there ASAP if I want one...

    I got there as fast as I could, and there was another couple in the line now. I hoped that they were only buying 1 but... nope, they were each buying one!!!!! Fuck this fuckin shit! I'm so angry. I wasted so much time on this. I hate nintendo so much. But you know what I hate more? Al these fucks that bought multiple copies. So many youtube comments on SNES classic videos saying that they bought multiple ones. One to play and one to keep sealed. Fuck these fuckers!!!! Sorry, i'm really pissed off right now.
    sorry but that's utterly fucking hilarious.
    Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for you, but just the way you described it made me laugh my ass off.

    The 2DS XL would be an absolute no-brainer if I liked the two colour options it comes in (black with neon cyan trim, or white with neon orange trim) but I don't in both cases the four ABXY buttons are solid colours matching the trim. There are a couple of limited edition versions either out or coming out (e.g. pokeball coloured/stickered) but they don't light my fire much either.

    My favourite of the current crop, style-wise, is the (non-XL) new 3DS, in a relatively restrained, SNES-like off white with coloured buttons look. but it has been discontinued.

    The dark metallic black 3DS XL is probably top of my list now. But there's the ltd ed SNES themed one coming out tomorrow. I think the inside looks lovely but the outside I'm not too bothered about, and it's a bit of a markup on the cost of a regular 3DS XL (and that's not even factoring in the availability of 2nd hand 3DS XLs now).

    The good news, though, is I've played about 30 minutes of Metroid on the SNESc now!

    i'm one of those retropie nerds, so i haven't needed either of the classic consoles, but since emulation with n64 is spotty, at BEST, i would certainly go all-in on an N64 console. it's the only "older" console i kept bc of storage issues at my apartment, and would love to have one!

    We used to have an N64 set up at my old renting place. I had a 360 and PS3, but the N64 was the go to for mario kart and goldeneye, it just worked!

    But it's looking less likely a 'classic' N64 would have many of it's best games thanks to licensing (a lot of it's bets games were made by Rare, Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing) So it would only be a select few of Nintendo's best, a lot of which have been ported and re-masted for the Wii virtual console and 3DS (Zelda, Mario 64, Pokemon Snap etc) which makes it kinda pointless now i think about it

    It's all good. I ended up getting one in the end anyway, so I can't help but look back and laugh at the whole ordeal leading up to it as well. Least it makes a good story. The fact that I had to fight tooth and nail for one, I think, makes it more special.

    As much as I thought I would want a bunch of my favorites on an N64 Classic, I realized...I still...have the games and my N64 from my childhood. ^^' So maybe it won't matter if a few games are absent from the included collection, and maybe they'll all be there and I'll have zero reason to buy one. All gonna depend on the catalogue, really.

    If nothing else, it'd just make me laugh to see the N64 controller being widely used again.

    A few days ago, I successfully hacked my SNES classic with Hakchi2 and added 60 games to it (for a grand total of 81). I was a little nervous to do so because I was paranoid about wrecking the thing, but it was really a pretty easy and straight-forward process. The "Cluster" guy that created that handy little program made it very user-friendly and intuitive. You just need to make sure you dump your original kernel and back it up somewhere so you can restore your SNES if anything goes wrong. Anyway, now I've got every game I ever owned, rented, or wanted (plus a few I never even played) on the thing, which is pretty cool. It was worth the $85.

    I'd love an N64 classic.. It would need four pads and only 4 games : Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros, GoldenEye and Mario Tennis. It would also come with a bag of weed and an attic as well as time off work for the full n64 experience.

    Nintendo: "Holy shit, how is the N64 classic selling so much faster than either of the others??"

    Marketing department: "Pfffffft, shit, man..."

    You gotta throw Ocarina of Time into that list above, make it 5 games?

    No controllers are included in the box, you'll have to buy those separately at $40 each. That's kind of gauging the consumer... at least include 1 controller!
    Least the controllers are wireless though. It is a nice package though, I'll admit.

    I'm gonna keep my eye on this.
