When you already have all but two of the games on the Wii U and Wii Virtual Console (well, Yoshi's Island is the GBA version).

StarFox 1 & 2 aren't worth buying the Classic Mini console for.

Because it's an official mini SNES.

if you don't own any games at all already. but many of us should already have several games that are also on the SNES Mini. I already have all of them on Virtual Console except for StarFox 1 and 2, and I have the GBA version of Yoshi's Island.

The controllers are the only reason I'm even considering it. But they're not worth $80.

Star Fox 2 kinda sweetens the deal, but still. It's too much.

Speak for yourself. Not everyone buys overpriced, 20+ year old digital games. And amusingly, even if you already own HALF the games that are included with the SNES Classic Edition, it STILL wouldn't be cheaper to buy the remaining games from the VC than it would be to just buy the SNES Classic Edition (not to mention you get two controllers with the SNES Classic Edition)

Too bad about the shortages then. Any you will find will be priced much higher than the retail price is.

This. I'd love to waste money on a convenient package of games that hits me in the nostalgia. It's a shame Nintendo doesn't want to sell it to people and I'm certainly not paying scalper scum.

1.) Novelty

2.) It has at least one game (Starfox 2) that was never released on the VC

3.) The SNES replica controllers.

4.) There are plenty of people that would spend $80 on this vs. $200 on a used Wii-U + the individual costs of games.
