This is a total tangent to our normal content but I had to write something about this nugget of gaming history becoming miniature, portable and modernised.
We've all been supping a pint with friends when reminiscing about old games and the perils of only have 16bit graphics and two buttons to press. Nintendo have now announced a revamp of the old NES system. Its pint-sized, fitting into the palm of your hand and comes pre-loaded with 30 classic games including all 3 Super Marios, both Zeldas, Bubble Bobble, a couple of Castlevanias and more.
Connected to modern tvs with an HDMI cable it also comes with a classic controller which can be used with this but also with NES Virtual Console games on your Wii.
Plug it in, pick up the grey controller and relive your youth! Visit the site >
