In North America why aren't all these consoles "XXL" editions. NES the size of a VCR with a heated compartment where the cartridge slot was to keep cheeseburgers warm for you and your friends mid game snack.

Ugh ok sorry Nintendo Fan boys but will this next mini be better supplied or yet another grab while you can to make others pay.

    My best guess is it will be a "show up 3 hours before the store opens on launch day or you're not getting one" situation. Nintendo has always said their consoles will be better supplied next time then they still end up being impossible to find at retail.

    Over here, most stores take preorders but this time they STRICTLY limit it to one per customer. It is almost like you risk a bullet to your head if you dare try to buy more than one Mini SNES.

    I agree with Jin, on this one. I'll be going to the lowest population density store in my area where I was able to snag a Switch. And throw a few elbows if I need to. ;P

My theory is that Apple extends their OS upgrades to devices one release longer than they should, in order to make the device so atrociously slow that people are 'encouraged' to upgrade.

    The world population grows every day without the planet getting any larger. We'll have to accept to live in smaller spaces, which is why these mini consoles are one step in the right direction. Now go burn all those old cartridges that take up valuable space.

Although it is nice to have a fan right behind my neck at the office, it is not entirely smart to place the printer just in front of the fan. Papers everywhere!

Remember how like for a few years we had to put "HD" in the name of everything that was HD?

    I remember it well! Then again I was in broadcasting (Master Control). I can remember when DISH only had 1 HD Pay Per View!

    HD radio is one of the biggest offenders. It stands for Hybrid Digital but still cashes in on the craze.

I just downloaded Galaga for the Playstation 4. It's just Galaga, albeit in a stylish wrapper. The game was 786 megs. The arcade original was 22K. What the hell, Namco? No wonder the download took forever.
