On this episode of Cheerful Ghost radio, we discuss a bunch of topics that we couldn't get into the previous episode, including the news that Nintendo is shipping more SNES Classic and NES Classic units than previously planned, JJ Abrams returning to direct Star Wars: Episode IX, Age of Empires IV, and Humble Bundle hitting $100 million in charity donations!

Also be sure to check out our friends at Game Dev's Quest, a podcast about the game development process: http://airpodcast.com/category/gamedevsquest/

The stopping of sales of nes classic makes more sense now that we know the snes classic pretty much uses the same hardware. It would have been nice to see both being made, but they probably wouldn't have met demand with either. I feel like that is the reason they went all in on the snes.

I think you are right. Which is a good thing, like you say, but made little sense to me then. They must be ramping up NES production now or soon to hit next year too. Though I wonder when the NES Classic will come out next year and if they are going to add anything new to it?

I hope they add the refinements to their output that the SNES Classic has, if nothing else.

Honestly... I don't really notice all that stuff myself but I can't tell the difference in HD audio VS 320k mp3s.

If they release anything new, I hope there is a way to update existing classics.

Yeah, right. That might be why they don't do that.
