Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on the NES Classic Edition

by John_A

The NES Classic is an easy sell: It’s a $60 device that looks and feels like the original Nintendo Entertainment System, with a library of 30 popular games pre-loaded. It’s also easy to set up — all you need is a spare USB port on your TV. The problem? The device is such a great proposition that it’s either sold out everywhere, or only available through resellers for five times the price. We’re not sure we recommend spending $300 on this, especially given a few flaws like the too-short controller cables and the fact that you can’t download any additional games.
