It probably comes as no surprise that within hours the hardware is already sold out at stores like GameStop and ThinkGeek.

Currently, these classic systems are the best way to enjoy Nintendo's legacy content, and it might be the only way for the foreseeable future. But Nintendo has kept the overall look and feel of the console; there's even a completely nonfunctional eject button. Recognizing there's an appetite? In addition to the classic SNES games, the system also includes a never-before released game: Star Fox 2. Oh yeah, there's an appetite.

Have we got a treat for you! . Yes, there are other features people want, but nothing compares to the VC. Meanwhile, according to Kotaku on yesterday's launch, "In June, when Nintendo announced the Super Nintendo Classic, the company promised that it would manufacture more consoles than it did for last year's NES Classic...." But the SNES Classic Edition, while still being heavily clamored for, now seems possible to buy. "Most stores I called sold out as soon as they opened, with long lines meaning that not even all the people who showed up early were able to get their hands on a unit". But Nintendo is onto something with the introduction of the new Star Fox title.

But the Super NES Classic does have a few new and nifty features. The company remade its 1980s entertainment system a year ago. Tapping into nostalgia like that is a brilliant move on Nintendo's part.

With that in mind, here's everything we know about the machine and the confirmed games that come pre-installed. However, that is believed to be different than the actual Virtual Console. I flashed a 27c160 EPROM with the rom extracted from a SNES Classic. They will not work on this system. It's a great problem to have.

Nintendo did promise that there would be a much better supply of SNES Classic consoles than there were of the previous retro console, but that doesn't mean they are going to be easy to find.

If you're sensing a trend, it's because the Japanese video game giant took a hit when their Wii U console didn't hit projected sales numbers.
