So Nintendo did something very strange today, they announced a re-release of the classic NES in stores now. This new system is said to be much smaller than the original, it’s to come with over 30 pre-installed games, it’s to plug directly into the TV and the controller is said to even be compatible with the Wii allowing it to be used with virtual console games.
Needless to say this is a bit of a weird choice, I don’t know many people who were clambering for a re-release of the NES but maybe I’m just not appreciative enough of the fact that we can finally play NES games again on a Nintendo licensed product. It reminds me a lot of those old bundle game consoles that you could just plug directly into the TV and play, the packaging and rebranding of the console even seems to mimic this style! Seems a bit expensive to me but you never know, people could be lining up in droves to get one of these. We will just have to wait and see what the reception of it is I suppose. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
