But your link does.
Edit: Nevermind I was confused with the link in the Nintendo discussion thread.

If you're referring to the list of games, there are some third-party ones there.

Final Fantasy is there. That surprised me!

I've read that it includes an HDMI cable. But will it be at least capable of supporting an AV cable as well?

I guess I should consider myself lucky that I actually got one of these. I had spent about a month leading up to Christmas searching desperately for one. I eventually started using "brickseek"(http://brickseek.com/target-inventor...ku=207-29-0180) to find it. And then I realized that the only way to actually find one on there is to look in the middle of night to see which Target store would actually have it in stock that day. Then comes going and waiting in line in front of Target for hours. I finally got mine a couple of days before Christmas. There's about 5-10 games that I really wish would've been included with the system that aren't, but it's still definitely worth the $60 retail price.

The NES Classic goes back on sale on June 29th.

https://www.cnet.com/news/nintendo-n...NET+Asia+Blogs

Someone from my job once wanted to get it for her dad. I should check with her to see if she's still interested, and I'd try to score one for her. She's the same person I found an SNES Classic for.

But why does it have to be $80 now?

Wow, what a waste. A system easily playable for 20 years via emulation for $0 vs. ponying up 1/3 the cost of a brand new Nintendo Switch.

I realized later that it's most likely an error. I should have corrected it.

Well, some people are more comfortable with legality.

Still, the 2nd run really should come with longer cables. I never owned one but I hear that was the most common complaint about it.

I'm curious to see how Nintendo handles the garishly large controller size for the anticipated N64 Classic. The original controller dimensions would undoubtedly make it about twice the size of the "console" itself.

It really should have longer cables. I'm glad they at least took that into consideration with the SNES Classic. I don't see myself getting an NES Classic for myself, but I did get a 9-foot USB cable for my SNES Classic. That might make up for the shorter controller cables if I had an NES Classic.

I guess you've seen the articles of what would suggest an N64 Classic on the horizon. As for the regular controllers, they might have had the shortest cables.
