Nintendo says that they're going to make more SNES Classic consoles for the west, but I wouldn't get my hopes up, because they're still going to be impossible to find.

Since the consoles are going to sell at only around $50-$60 as a starting price, people are just going to buy more than one unit when they launch in the west.

It's honestly easier just to visit a retro game shop and buy an original SNES console for $50 or so.

Plus, some of the most popular Super Nintendo games can be found for cheap prices.

You're also not limited to just the games that come with the SNES Classic console, as there are a multitude of great SNES games outside of that package.

The only good SNES game that you'll miss out on is Earthbound, but that's available through Nintendo's Virtual Console, and you also have the option of buying a cheap repro (that's if you just want to play the game and don't care about collecting for the SNES).

The lesson about SNES collecting is that it's all really good fun as long as you know when to stop.

Well it's hard to look for an SNES Classic before it's out I guess.

You're still not going to find one on release day.

I hear you can also back-end a Raspberry Pi with an emulator, but with my skills I'd probably make it catch fire...

It's a game that was supposed to be released over 20 years ago to the public and didn't make it.

Who's going to be interested in playing it in 2017?

I'd rather play games like Super Turrican, Illusion of Gaia, and Battletoads & Battlemaniacs, but can you find those games on the SNES Classic?

Get both, the SNES Classic if it has good stock will be a steal compared to if you buy them all seperate. The original SNES alone is just as expensive if not more than the Mini. Or you can get a Clone System, which might not have the best compatibility.
I'm an organized mess.
