As great as Nintendo’s little retro NES Classic Edition console was, we definitely recommend a box like the Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD Gaming Console instead. Aside from the fact that it’s much less expensive, it doesn’t limit you to a handful of preinstalled games. Instead it can play every NES cartridge ever made. If you absolutely have to have Nintendo’s console though, you’ll be happy to know that you didn’t miss the boat. If you’re willing to pay a premium for the discontinued device, it’s still available from tons of sellers on Amazon. Just make sure you pick a reputable seller when you buy it.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition has the original look and feel, only smaller, sleeker, and pre-loaded with 30 games
    The pre-installed games include: Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, PAC-MAN, Dr. Mario, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, and dozens more
    Includes a standard HDMI cable
    Comes with one old-school, grey-colored NES Classic Controller and an AC adapter
    Also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. Additional NES Classic Controllers will be sold separately
