I doubt many people buy this one to play games.
It is mostly a collector item.
Ya, I am quite sure all these NES and SNES mini games, together with their emulator systems (which offer save-anywhere, visual filters etc), will become part of the Switch's network subscription monthly free games. So people don't need to actually play them on these miniature novelties (there are already many emulators and ROMs around anyway, if people really want to play the games).

I think you are referring to Famicom Mini (Jap) as the controllers are really super small cos they are docked on system which is already miniaturized.

On the other hand, NES Classic mini controllers are regular sized.

Looking at reviews and streamings, the NES one is quite unplayable. Firstly the controller cable is super super short, you have to buy third party extension. This SNES one has longer cable but still very short.

The NES mini has super super tiny controller (imagine big adult hands holding a matchbox), which is very hard to use, especially the d-pad. If you have to press in any diagonal direction, gg liao. The SNES controllers at least has rounded shape, which helped in the life size console but the NES controller's sharp corners wasn't much of a problem in the mini size version. I expect the same issues with this, again especially the d-pad, due to the tiny size.

Which means if you buy the uglier NA versions you get better controllers?

IMO, the Europe version is like a hybrid:

S.Famicom chassis (looks better,the colourful buttons!) with SNES English games.

If I'm getting this, it'll be European for me.

I wana get the super famicon as I used to have the original version.
However, saw that gamewerks is holding PO and they mentioned that no refund of deposit if price is below $160.

I wonder how much would it be in the end...
I bought the classic mini around $90.

I preordered from PlayE for $110 last year. Used their anniversary $100 cashback, in the end Paid $10 + $21.90 (extra controller)

Just curious, $90 from overseas?

Bought it thru lazada. Didn't PO.
Iirc it was during some sales.

Just checked my order.. sold and fulfilled by maxsoft.
Price listed was $99. But as I bought it during sales in nov last year, paid a total of $87.14 (inclusive of local shipping).

That's quite affordable man. Good deal. My friends were trying to get it after launch last year. After it became out of stock, game stores jacked up price as high as $230 (+ extra controller) for restock.

Anyways, to avoid disappointment later, I just preordered SNES Classic (Europe) from Gamewerks.

What's the difference b/w Europe, US and local set? Did they specify? I would rather not have those 2-pin plugs. Very troublesome.

From what I know so far:

US - English lang games, grey chassis, sharp edges, purple buttons design

Japanese - Japanese lang games, grey chassis, round edges, colorful buttons design

Europe - English lang games, same design as Japanese version

Note: English games list and Japanese games list almost similar, but with a few differences.
