The NES Classic Edition is genius.

This.  Is.  Brilliant.  The NES Classic Edition is just this little, palm-sized box that you jack into your hot new flatscreen TV, that comes pre-loaded with thirty - count 'em, thirty - classic Ninty gems.  Now, not every NES classic is on here - notably absent are more than one of the Mega Mans and Metal Gear - but what is on offer is pretty much every classic Nintendo game you loved.  Behold!

  • Balloon Fight
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Double Dragon II: The Revenge
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • Final Fantasy
  • Galaga
  • Ghosts N' Goblins
  • Gradius
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • Mega Man 2
  • Metroid
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Pac-Man
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • Super C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Now it has zero online functionality, and no additional games will ever come to it - it's just a box that runs the above thirty games, but a little box that runs the above thirty games for just sixty bucks US?  Oh my lanta.  That's obviously gotta' happen.  Launches November 11th.
