One-upping the NES Classic Edition with the Raspberry Pi 3 and RetroPie

NES Classic is no more, but thankfully cost-effective hobbyist boards are great for small projects.

Last Nov., Nintendo pleasantly surprised everyone by returning to its root base and releasing the NES Classic. The charming emulator/nostalgia-fest triggered uncontrolled demand, including near-instant supply issues and 200-percent-plus markups in secondary markets. So in December of 2016, we decided to build our own version as an alternative. Since Nintendo bizarrely announced that it won’t be making any more of the hard-to-find mini consoles this week, we’re re-running this piece to help those of you with a DIY streak again build your own. Hardware recommendations have been updated to reflect current availability and pricing for April 2017.

JB Hi-Fi Just Received The Mother Lode Of Nintendo Classic Minis

Christmas 2016 will forever be recalled as the year people went legit bananas for a old style NES console. The thing was a piece of plastic that basically played 30 games from the 8-bit era – but nostalgia is a powerful thing. So powerful that demand utterly eclipsed supply, leading to crashed websites, exhausted stock and a huge number of empty-handed people.

For the people still on a Zelda-like quest to get this legendary gadget, we’ve got some great news: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition is currently for sale in JB Hi-FI stores, Australia wide. Hurrah!
