I wonder if they'll alter the hardware to prevent all the fun people had with the original wave of NES Classics.

Doubt it, I mean what do they care what someone does with it after they buy it.

Considering how much they like to milk their virtual games, letting someone be able to easily mod it to play everything for free seems like something they'd be concerned with.

Yeah but emulation for Snes/NES is already so easy to do that its not like the nes classic was something new. Anyone who was gonna mod the nes classic could run it on their pc or other devices as well.

Nintendo launched a whole campaign offering a cash reward to hackers if they could show Nintendo how the 3ds was getting hacked and how to stop it. So they care.

Yeah but there is a big difference between people hacking brand new games that are being sold and trying to stop the hacking versus trying to stop hacking of 30 year old games that are ALREADY mass emulated.

I mean if they wanted to stop emulation they are WAAAAYYY to late and its a moot point.

Right when I gave up hope of ever getting a SNES Mini, my coworker sent me that article. I'm really hoping I can get one to accompany my NES Mini, but I'm not going to hold my breathe.

Nintendo isn't doing this for us, its for them. More stock is more easy cash on their end.

how was the quality of the emulation on the nes classic? I've heard mixed things about the timing of games like punch out, on this site and others

This was the first thing I thought of. They'll likely step up their security on this release.

Watch them release system on chip with no ability to reflash. Save game data goes in a tiny section too small to reflash with anything else.

It may depend on what emulation you're used to. Compared to PC emulation the sound is noticeably delayed and you have the usual input delay present on most HDMI stuff, makes twitch games like Punch-out more difficult to play. Compared to a Pi, it's slightly less delay on input but still noticeable audio delay. The reason people slam Mike Tyson specifically is that the cues in that game are both video AND audio-based, so the audio lagging even further behind than the input, timing becomes acutely off. Lots of people don't really say they notice any audio issues but they swear up and down over Mike Tyson. Audio's the reason.

Laughably the fake NES Classic I got, the sound and video are actually VERY responsive, not CRT fast but very close to it, but that thing drops frames like they're hot and the video quality's bad and the audio's missing entire instruments and effects. Compared to everything else I've tried other than PC emulation, NES Classic's the best plug and play experience you can get. Video's super smooth and doesn't drop a beat, interface is excellent, and the soft-mod ability of the NES Classic makes it that much more of a value package if you want to dip into it.

For $60 it's a no-brainer, but for market value... it's a very heavy stretch. But it's loads better than any emulation they've had on Wii or Wii U.

That's what outsourcing is for. Sit on your lazy ass while some foreign entity fudges up your crap for you.
