    Uncertain of any flash cartridges that support Super FX games, but for certain there's going to be a buttload of reproduction hackjobs on eBay once the rom's extracted.

    Ah, softmodded Xbox or Wii or whatever will suffice then. The prototype translation / fix runs pretty decent on an old softmodded Xbox.

    Either way, the extraction of that ROM is what I'm looking forward to. If I could easily grab the system at retail I would but we know that's not how it's going to be and it'll have a short production life.

    Well, I chewed on it for a very good while last month, and made a decision. Hunting down a SNES CE was going to take an amount of effort and resources that would be better spent on either adding to my Backlog of Glory or (a random example) getting the sourcebooks and gear to make my 40k collection current again or something. If I was going to bother at all, I need to just do it right the first time.

    So I snapped up a regular SNES so I could play what the hell I wanted, instead of being restricted by what was living on the CE's firmware or whatever. Yes, the lack of Chrono Trigger on the CE was a factor, but there were other ones. Robotrek, Lufia, the Super Star Wars trilogy, Secret of Evermore, Breath of Fire 1 and 2, Illusion of Gaia, maybe even Axelay or UN Squadron. Maybe even Addams Family Values (pretty much Zelda or IoG, but you play as a Sith Lord) or Joe and Mac. If I'm going to be a lunatic, I want to at least do it on my own terms, y'know?

    As I'm sure most know by now, Nintendo announced that the NES Classic Mini will RETURN to production, for a Summer 2018 release! In addition, SNES Classic Mini's will continue to be produced and sold through 2018 as well!

    A press statement just released by Nintendo of America has confirmed that the Super Nintendo Classic Mini system will continue production into 2018, after originally planning to cut off at the end of this year. NoA is also promising to ship more units on launch day (September 29) than were shipped for the NES Classic Mini in all of 2016 and to keep the unit in high supply while shipments are available.

    The NES Classic Mini will also have a new printing next summer. More specific timing on the re-release will be announced later.

    Worthless without hard manufacturing numbers. All this does is give all the scalpers cause to high five one another, their golden goose is getting ready to lay another batch of eggs for them.

    So, I subscribe to this magazine from the UK called RetroGamer. When I received this month's issue, included in the bag was an issue of SuperPlay!

    It basically covers all the games that will be included in the SNES mini system. It's about 50 pages. Pretty cool!

    I just hope Nintendo manages to come through, and the scalpers are the ones left laying eggs. Of course, given Nintendo's recent track record with getting decent quantities of their hardware releases into stores, one can never be sure..........

    I actually talked this over with some IRL friends, and we decided we'll be cautiously excited until further notice. I hope that they don't botch it with a another short production run; artificial, induced scarcity like that is infuriating.

    I managed to collect one of these Super Nintendo Classic Editions thanks to one of my family. Anyone else here manage to get one?

    I heard that places that only got a few NES CE's last year got a lot more SNES CE's this time around. For example, the GameStop near me got 3 NES's in 2016, but it got 6 SNES's this year. The Toys 'r' Us where my SNES CE was purchased was allotted a total of 36 SNES CE's.

    I went to the local (NE Minneapolis) Target at about 9 am yesterday. They had 60 units, with 53 people waiting in line at opening, so by 9 they were all long gone. They did limit to one per person. The staff were really friendly and said 60 was way more than what they got for NES Classic, so hopefully there will continue to be more, though I won't hold my breath. There was one guy asking about it at the same time as me, and as I was shopping for other stuff I saw at least a half dozen more (guys) that I suspected were there for one. Another two in the parking lot.

    I feel like walking into a store at 9am on release day for something that's really a pretty simple bit of electronics, one should be able to get it. I don't even blame scalpers anymore, they're just a symptom of the problem.

    The overall feedback I'm seeing on a few other gaming boards and FB groups is that most people were able to get one, though many did wait in line.
