NES Classic getting reissued around next summer.



I half expect it to have a somewhat different games library, because Nintendo. :lol



Wouldnt surprise me. NES Classic Vol. 2. But one aspect alot are speculating will be different is making it more difficult or impossible to hack to add more games.

Re: Nintendo to rerelease the NES


It's difficult to even understand how these things fit in with Nintendo's existing Virtual Console business. There's no reason the NES and SNES classics couldn't contain every game ever released for those systems. Even with licensing issues, they could at least include very first and second party game to which Nintendo owns the publishing rights. My NES PowerPak has every NES, Famicom and FDS game on a 4GB CF card, and the 4GB is overkill.

They only reason they don't is that would cannibalize the Virtual Console. That's the same reason I suspect the things are being made in limited quantity for limited times. It's a tease to make some quick extra cash over the holidays, then push everybody back to the Virtual Console when it's over. Where NES games go for $5 and SNES for $10.
