Nintend0 is releasing their NES Classic Edition console this week. It’s really exciting to see the Japanese gaming giant excited about their old games again, but the $6o mini console only offers 30 games and is in short supply due to limited quantities and high demand. We suggest an alternative—one that is half the price and half the size—but can hold thousands of games from over three decades of consoles.
This article drafts off of inspiration from the original article on Howchoo.
