Now that the SNES Classic Edition is up for pre-order, people are far less interested in the discontinued NES Classic Edition than they were even a few short weeks ago. What does that mean for you? Well, if you never managed to find an NES Classic when they were on sale, then you know that prices for available units skyrocketed on Amazon as soon as the retro console was discontinued. A ton of people out there still want one, so you should know that prices on Amazon have dropped significantly over the course of the past week as attention shifts to the SNES model. Be sure to check the “other sellers” section for the best prices, but obviously look at a seller’s feedback before you order and stay away from stores marked “just launched.”

Here are some key details 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

Of course if you ask us, the RetroN 1 is a much better buy, and it plays every NES game ever made.
