IGN Gets Hands-On With The SNES Classic Hardware

IGN was able to go hands-on with the SNES Classic hardware at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. While they didn’t get to actually play any games or try the system, they were able to hold it and compare it to other items like a launch SNES, a SNES cartridge, and the ever-elusive NES Classic.

Everything we’ve been seeing and hearing about the SNES Classic has been wonderful, now we just have to wait to see if we can actually secure a pre-order…

The SNES Classic will launch on September 29, 2017 for $79.99 and comes with 21 pre-installed games, including the never before released Star Fox 2.





    1. Oh yeah, like it was my fault when Nintendo put the SS amiibos online when I was fucking working, it was all my fault that I couldn’t secure a preorder. Not Nintendo limiting their stock like they always do, nope.

        Or me if I’m sleeping or doing something else like actually playing video games, watching movies or television shows, eating, watching my kid, & all the other stuff that’s more important then spending 24/7 refreshing a page on an online store or waiting outside a Wal-Mart or Gamestop for them to open.

        No but it is their fault for under-stocking stuff they know for a fact is going to freaking sell.


      1. Hence the “kidding”.

        However collective ownership is a characteristic of Socialism, and I believe it is possible to link it to the idea of everyone receiving an equal share of production.


      2. ||Collective contribution is a more logical term, but like everything human, it’s corrupted since the rich do not contribute no matter what system you have…||

    2. It might sound strange, but some of us actually have lifes. We work, we have families to take care of, and still have to find time to game (because its a hobby, not a priority.) Now when something like SNES mini comes out, and the preorder window is only a few minutes long, then it becomes impossible for us to get it. Weve been Ninty fans for years, but because of responsibilities, we get shafted. (I can personally say that im working 14 hours a day, and still have to find time for my family, gf, gaming and sleeping.)

        I’m on disability but I do have other things that I want and/or have to do that’s far more important than an amiibo. Besides, it’s not MY responsibility to have good stock for a product they should be trying to freaking sell so they can actually make money. People want to talk about how video games aren’t a priority but a luxury we get. Well that defense for companies goes both fucking ways. It’s a fucking luxury that I even buy the company’s product as I don’t really have to buy it because it’s a luxury. If you don’t have what I want or don’t give me what I want, I’ll take my money elsewhere. Simple as that.

      2. All of this right here. I can understand that trying to find the correct amount of stock may be difficult at times, but what I can’t understand is that Nintendo will literally stop production on something when it’s still selling out within minutes instead of a few hours. After the NES mini fiasco, I don’t think I’ll even be able to preorder this thing before Nintendo decides to pull the plug. Anything they produce besides the actual games for the systems is a rarity when it shouldn’t even be one.

      3. Indeed, but you presume that I do not?
        I am not here to dictate your lives in this regard, it is all up to yourselves, but my point is this: if it is when you are sleeping; put an alarm on. If it when you are working (and you have any of the most common jobs), take a toilet break at the right time.
        This is what I believe to be dedication, and if one does not feel the need for this in their life, by all means.
        But if one at the same knows the landscape of low stock and high demand, then I suggest that those people cut down their wining…

        (To be perfectly clear, this is not necessarily aimed at you DemiGOD, but anyone that this applies too.)

    1. It’s coming to the point where I’ll have to camp outside of the mall and then not get trampled over college students just to get an Nintendo product. It’s ridiculous.


      1. I had to wait in line for 3 HOURS to get the NES Classic Mini. And even that was overwhelming for me (and awkward, having to hear the people in front of me talking about their entire stupid lives). I can’t imagine having to camp outside a store.
