8Bitdo has announced a new accessory for the red-hot gaming console that nobody can seem to get their hands on this holiday: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. The company is marketing its NES30 Classic Edition Set, which adds wireless controller support to the retro console via Bluetooth. The set comes with a Bluetooth adapter that plugs directly into the console, and includes the NES30, which is a wireless replica of the original NES controller. The NES30 is capable of providing you 30 hours of wireless gaming, which should be more than enough to handle your hardcore Super Mario Bros. gaming sessions. One added bonus with this particular controller is that pressing the Down and Select buttons... Read more...
The holiday shopping season isn't even in full swing yet though it looks like we already know what one of the hottest selling items will be: Nintendo's pint sized NES Classic Edition. Demand is red hot for the miniature version of the most popular game consoles of all time, and that's led to inflated price tags on eBay and through third-party sellers. Don't give in. Walmart is making available a limited number of NES Classic Edition consoles each day through the end of the work week. Like the handful of other vendors hawking the classic console, Walmart quickly sold out of its inventory at $60 a pop. Some of the sites selling the NES Classic Edition even buckled under the tremendous demand for... Read more...
If you couldn't get your hands on the NES Classic Edition when it first went on sale yesterday, you weren't alone. Initial supplies of the retro gaming console were extremely limited, with some brick and mortar locations receiving just six units per store (really, Nintendo?). As we noted yesterday, trying to purchase the NES Classic Edition from an online retailer wasn’t much better, as most quickly went out of stock (or never had any stock to begin with). Many gamers penned their hopes on getting the console from Amazon, which advertised that the NES Classic Edition would be available to purchase online at 5PM EST. Well, as you might expect, the site actually crashed: Not even joking. NES Classic... Read more...
If you were dead set on having a bit of officially-sanctioned Nintendo gaming nostalgia in your hands, your chances of scoring the NES Classic Edition at retail price are quickly dwindling. The retro gaming console went on sale today (retailers did not offer pre-orders) and is quickly selling out online. Taking a quick peek online, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Gamestop and B&H Photo are all sold out of the NES Classic Edition. Brick and mortar stores that had stock were quickly depleted. Perhaps the last hope for people that would like to score the console at retail price any time soon is Amazon. The online retail giant will open orders for the console today at 5PM EST. If you’re...

It’s an almost certainty that the upcoming Nintendo NES Classic Edition console will be one of the runaway hits of the holiday shopping season. Nintendo first announced the pint-sized gaming console back in July, and it brings with it all the retro-gaming goodness that those of us who grew up as 80s kids loved. However, if there’s one thing that is somewhat of an annoyance for potential customers, it has to be the NES Classic Edition’s wired controllers. While wired controllers are in keeping with the original NES, in which gamers usually sat on the floor directly in front of the TV, they don’t exactly fit in well with our current wireless gaming lifestyle. That’s where Nyko comes in. The accessory... Read more...
For those gamers that honed their button-mashing skills on the original NES during the 80s and early 90s, Nintendo went right for the jugular in July when it announced the NES Classic Edition. Looking like an NES that got hit with a shrink ray, the NES Classic Edition comes bundled with 30 games and a single controller (which is also patterned after the original). Earlier this summer, we learned that the NES Classic Edition, which connects to your HDTV using an HDMI cable, will offer a number of display modes that will help you better relive your earliest gaming memories. As we reported, Pixel Perfect mode displays each individual pixel in a square format (to take best advantage of your HDTV),... Read more...
Nintendo's pulling out all the stops with its NES Classic Edition console, especially in regards to how the more than two dozen baked in retro titles will look on your big screen TV. Utilizing your HDMI input, you'll have a standard HD-resolution gaming experience if that's what you're after, but the console will also support some old school viewing modes. Julie Gagnon, the communications manager at Nintendo of Canada, explained the different display options available on the NES Classic Edition during an interview with a French-language radio show. According to Gagnon, nostalgic gamers will have the option of selecting a display mode that simulates the old CRT televisions that most people probably... Read more...
Nintendo shocked us all last week when it revealed the tiny NES Classic Edition console, which fits in the palm of your hand. The announcement of the console came hot on the heels of Pokémon Go’s release in the United States, which has made Nintendo the hottest name in gaming for the past two weeks (while at the same time causing the company’s market value to double in the process). Nearly every gamer who came of age in the 80s performed their best Philip J. Fry impression, instantly proclaiming “Shut up and take my money!” Now Nintendo has gone and put some cherries on top of its delicious gaming treat with a new trailer that showcases the NES Classic Edition: If you’re familiar with advertising...

We have the feeling that millions of gamers are about to add a new item to their Christmas wish lists. Nintendo has just announced its NES Classic Edition console, which is a miniature version of the blockbuster Nintendo Entertainment Center console that debuted in the early 80s. The original NES was the very first introduction to home video gaming for many Americans and holds a tremendous amount of nostalgia. Nintendo is playing up on that nostalgia, as the newly announced NES Classic Edition comes bundled with a single controller (you can purchase an additional controller for two-player gaming) and both are dead ringers for the originals. Nintendo also had the forethought to make the controller... Read more...
