Nintendo can claim that sticking with wired controllers makes its SNES Classic Edition a more authentic retro gaming experience, but in reality it's probably just a cost-saving measure. Wrangling controller cables isn't a part of your childhood worth reliving, however, so Nyko once again has mercifully bestowed gamers with an affordable wireless alternative.

When EB Games took pre-orders for the Nintendo Mini NES Classic earlier this week, the website crashed under the sheer volume of traffic from eager buyers. This happened two days in a row, leaving a mob of angry customers in its wake. With all the hype around the classic console, you'd think EB Games would have expected the level of traffic to its online store and worked to ensure its website was reliable. We take a look at where EB Games might have gone wrong and what businesses can learn from this debacle.


Look I'm not saying the Nintendo SNES is absolutely going to happen. I'm saying it should happen.

It should happen because it's greatest console of all time, and the market for something like this clearly exists.

It should happen because I think about the games Nintendo could put on a device like this and I literally get giddy inside.

So I decided to make a list.


If you want to see this glorious screen on your TV come Christmas, then you'll need a Nintendo Classic Mini NES. And if you want to get one of those without paying an exorbitant amount to a hawker on Ebay, you'll need to buy from a retailer.

EB Games tried to kick off their second round of pre-orders yesterday, only for their site to crash in a fireball of disappointment. So the retailer is reopening pre-orders today.


Most NES games have not aged very well. The Nintendo Entertainment System relied too much on antiquated principles from coin-operated arcades -- timers, limited lives, inflated difficulty -- that just don't make for good video games in 2016.
