I know some of you said you weren't getting the new NES classic, but all your fears have been put to rest because here is an official video showing it off! If i've learned one thing it's that people can't resist advertising so let me know if this turned you around to picking one of these up on November 11th.

Commercial's work. Right?

"From your first Goomba stomp to your thousandth victory in FINAL FANTASY®, the Nintendo Entertainment System™ may just be the most nostalgic gaming console ever. And now, a new, miniaturized version is here, pre-loaded with 30 of the all-time greatest games, including The Legend of Zelda™, Super Mario Bros.™ 3, and MEGA MAN® 2. Just plug it in…and play."

Commercial heckling aside, this looks great and i'll be picking one of these up around the holiday season.

Maybe I've fallen for the trick, but just seeing it in action makes it feel that much more tempting. I'm not sure if I'll get it, but I haven't ruled it out completely. It would be awesome if it wasn't strictly limited to those 30 games. It would be sweet if it included the entire NES library (although probably more expensive).

They'd have to clear more game licenses which would bump the price a bit. Nintendo owns quite a bit of those games, but not all of them.

Kinda bummed Duck Tales isn't on that list though.

I'm not sure what other games I'd love to see on it, but I agree that DuckTales should be one of them. (BTW I wrote "Duck Tales" in a previous post and the Internet shows it's name as "DuckTales," so that's why I've written it that way here.)

Warrio's Woods would've been great also (but the SNES version looked better :) ) ... Still $60 for 30 games on a little console with a re-usable controller... that's awesome for me. I'll get one and a second controller launch day and play with the kids :)
