A lot of time and energy has been spent writing about the worrying pace at which technology moves forward. It’s been characterized as unnatural, something without precedent – and as a result – something we should be worried about. Yet even the specter of the exponentially increasing pace of tech improvement is no match to our own reflexive nostalgia. To a whole lot of praise and excitement, Nintendo is re-relseasing their NES.
This small system will come out of the box with 30 classic titles in all. You can simply plug this small box into your TV or monitor and revisit those worlds you were so fond of as a kid using the same old classic controllers. Super Mario Brothers 1, 2, and 3 will be on here, along with the Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Tecmo Bowl and 23 others. The system is slated for release on November 11th and will retail for $60. [Purchase]
