Can’t Find a ‘NES Classic Edition’? Here are some Great Alternatives

No doubt one of the hottest Christmas gift items this year is the NES Classic Edition. It’s a mini Nintendo Entertainment System that comes pre-loaded with 30 games and, at a $60, it’s hard to find as a lot of people want one, myself included. They were sold out the day they went on sale so, in lieu of getting one of those, here are some other options.



The NES Classic Edition comes with 30 games. This system from Retro-Bit comes with over 90 and includes games for NES, SNES and more. It even includes some games that never came out in the United States. Definitely worth looking into.



Sega Genesis Plug ‘n Play



This one has a very nifty feature not found in many plug ‘n play-type consoles. Sure, it comes pre-equipped with 80 games but also has a cartridge slot that will allow you play your Sega Genesis carts, too! Again, it features 80 games, but not all of them were originally for the Sega Genesis. Still, a great value with the best Genesis games already built in.


Atari Flashback


I grew up with the Atari 2600 so this is near and dear to my heart. Atari comes out with a new version about every year or so. The last one I have is the Atari Flashback 2. This has far more games at 101 classics and new hit titles (as says on the box) and the games are just as fun.


My Arcade Retro Machine


This one just looks cool. It has 200 games built in to a little arcade unit. The 200 games aren’t games that were originally in the arcade, but many of them will play very familiarly to the ones you grew up with. I haven’t played one of these, yet, but it’s on my wish list.


ColecoVision Flashback


The Colecovision came out between Atari and Nintendo. I had one but didn’t get one until much later. It had its charm so it’s cool to see they made an all-in-one system for Colecovision as well featuring 60 games built-in. For the guy who has everything but this, this is what to get him or her.
