great product, shitty sales

Try and buy this product online and you'll just get cancelled orders and frustration. Do yourself a favour and try somewhere else. Literally have been trying to buy this for months and even when i check out it sits for a week then cancels itself. God job Best buy.

  • from Orleans, ON

Very cheaply made

I wasn't expecting much and got less.

Brings back Memories of my Childhood

Has all the old Nintendo favorites brings me back to my Childhood. Very easy to set and takes up no space. Only draw back in the control cord is very short, but you can buy an extend very cheaply.

  • from Lethbridge, AB


Wow! Brings back childhood memories, it made me smile the first time I turned it on. Works great, no hitches. Very happy wth it

  • from Toronto, ON


The controller is terrible. Often it requires a "reset" by unplugging as it become totally unresponsive.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Controller not always responsive

Good machine but the controller it came with could be finicky with some games. The buttons were not consistently responsive and would select the wrong items in certain games. May have to send the controller to Nintendo for repair or exchange.

  • from Edmonton, AB

  • from Montréal, QC

be sure to make no mistake in your adress best buy will resale it to someone else they are useless to correct an adress....never ordering again with Best buy.....

  • from Vancouver, BC

Great system, less than ideal cable length

The system is great but unlike the SNES it only comes with one controller and the cord is only 1m so you'll need to buy an additional controller and definitely extension cables.

  • from Minnedosa, MB

Works great!!!

New stock updated as of June 29th, 2018!! Got mine today after missing out the first time. Now we can all relive our childhood and early adulthood memories!!

  • from Edmonton, AB

Un known

Do you have the Nes classic mini in store stock

  • from Mississauga, ON

LOL. Got one. Tears are delicious! :D

5 stars. Thank you Bestbuy.

  • from victoria, bc

keep an eye out as purchased one this morning

they are sold out already for june 29. I got one first thing. finally! now release more

  • from Calgary, AB

Back in stock!

I just wanted to say that I was able to successfully order one of these today on June 29, 2018. Looking forward to receiving my own NES classic as I missed out on it the first time around. I did manage to find the SNES classic last September so there was no chance I would miss today's re-release of the NES classic.

  • from Brampton, ON

wont be coming back into stock

nintendo discontinued this item and this item wont come back unless nintendo specifies it is bringing it back

  • from Cobourg, ON

NES Classic

Nice system but really hard to find. I wish it had more games like the ninja turtles

  • from Toronto, ON

NES is a classic gem!

Was one of the lucky few to have received this product prior to the discontinuation. Flawless design coupled with some the best titles that were released on the NES makes this system truly one of a kind. Currently I like this system more than the Switch do to the classic title line-up. You'll be the envy of all your friends (if you can manage to get your hands on one)

  • from Burnaby, BC

Best gm ever

This Nintendo product is the bomb diggity man. The Nostalgia factor is just surreal brings me back to the good old days every time I play this bad boy. I suggest everyone to definitely buy one.

  • from Oshawa, ON

Great gimmicky nostalgia, that becomes boring very quickly.

I purchased on launch, I guess I was one of the "lucky ones". It's a really cool gimmick, and at the end of the day that is all it is. I've since sold my NES Classic, as it simply became boring within minutes of turning it on. I took the stroll down memory lane, took in the scenery and I'm good now. That was enough nostalgia for another 10+ years. It's a very cool gimmick, but that's what it is. For the majority of those purchasing this will become a dust collector super fast. Those who choose to "unlock additional features" might have a better experience, but for most it's not worth the effort into trying to track one down. I purchased in November, played it for five minutes and it sat until March. The Switch will have a Virtual Console very soon and all will be well. Relax.

  • from Grimsby, ON

An actual Review

All of these people lowering the stars because they cant receive the product is plain dumb. Nintendo caused the shortage and have decided to only make a small batch or two. Not Best Buy's fault. The system is a perfect little replica of the NES. With a bit of Google research you can have much more on the system which is fantastic. Having the entire NES library in your hand. If you are looking to play these old games just research the net there are other ways to get what you are looking for but I love the look of the machine. Easy to use and having game saves is great! Too bad Nintendo doesn't make more as they fear its cutting into future virtual console sales likely.

  • from Chambly, QC

Time machine.

This thing is awesome. There is a bit of HDMI lag (sound) on cheap TV's though. Don't blame Bestbuy on the scarcity. Blame Nintendo (although pre-orders would have been nice :P ) I've managed to get a total of 3 (one for me and one each for two of my buddies... not scalping ). You just gotta have all of your info filled in before they go on sale. Do NOT use VISA or Paypal. Mash that F5 at least 5 minutes BEFORE the announced sale time. Good luck all!

  • from Roxboro, QC

Lucky persistence paid off!!!!

I'm beyond happy and excited to have purchased a Nintendo Classic!!!!! I refreshed the bestbuy page every day sometimes several times a day for three yes 3 months straight!!!! I even called my local bestbuy every shipping day in the afternoon for 2 months straight twice a week. By chance about two weeks ago bestbuy showcased the Nintendo online as available. When I saw that Green check mark it freaked me out!!!! I instantly made the order and 20minutes later I checked the status again and it was back to sold out. Wow wow wow !!!! After playing it now for two weeks, me n the kids are happier than ever!!!! Johnnieblades

  • from Brampton

Awesome little machine

Quadcore, 512ram, 300mb storage. Awesome michine. Nintendo make other controllers compatible for 6-8 buttons. Handles emulator perfectly. Nes, snes, n64, genesis, gameboy, arcade, etc. Handles Marvel vs capcom no problem. Only con is the wires are short. But i have a 10ft hdmi cable and 10ft micro usb cable. Console sits between us

  • from Montréal, QC

Amazing System

I was able to buy from one of Best Buy's flash sales of the NES Classic back in November and I'm fortunate enough to be a proud owner of one. This product is amazing. My family and I had such a blast over the Christmas holidays playing Dr. Mario and Zelda, it was like the late '80s and we were kids all over again. Also, since the product can be now easily soft modded with ClusterM's "Hakchi2" software, allowing us to add any NES game rom we want, it only increased the value and usefulness of the console. Hopefully they will become available again soon because I know lots of people who are still dying to get their hands on one.

  • from Cambridge, ON

Love It

Love this product. Takes me back. I was lucky enough to get one for a friend and myself. While the demand is high, people will continue to use website monitoring tools to be notified almost instantly when stock is in. If you're not doing that or in the store at the exact right time, you have little chance right now.

  • from Aurora, ON

Great working box but controller a little too short

Okay, people seemed to forget what a REVIEW is. Complaining that a product is not in stock is NOT A REVIEW. Quit ruining the review board with your crying. Discuss THE PRODUCT. If you managed to get one, discuss what you feel are the PROS and CONS of the item. I finally managed to get hold of a NES Classic and for the MOST part, I'm happy with my purchase. The box works, it's a good selection of games, the interface is good, what else can I say, it's fun to play. CONS: controller cable is too short! I don't know what Nintendo was thinking, but longer cables needed to be added. Another small down fall is the you only have 30 games, it would of been nice if you can expand the library...eventually, you'll get bored of only having 30 games on the box. That being said, since this REVIEW, this box has been hacked and users have loading 84 games IN TOTAL on this console. Just on the fact that this box can be easily hacked to add more titles, BIG PRO, you should get one.

  • from Barrie, ON

Excellant Play Value and Price. Five Stars.

Gave this as a Christmas gift for 40 year old son. Claims it is the best gift he has ever had, even beats the original. Loves all the games and back to being addicted. My Daughter in Law is now a Nintendo widow and hands off rule to the kids. This is a must have for all you retro gamers, the kids of today think these games are too hard. Hahaha. Adults rule. Very cool of Nintendo to do this.

  • from Winnipeg

Awesome system

I love punch out

  • from Paradise, NL

Great throwback

Excellent retro console, with the added ability to save your position in each game. Fun for the kids, fun for the adults. Cord length could be longer, but a couple of extension cables did the trick.

  • from St-Félicien, QC

The Power of Nostalgia

I love this product. I haven't been a big fan of Nintendo's work these past few years but this is a console that clearly appeals to me: It has a great selection of classic games, is easy to use and has perfect aesthetics. The interface is very simple and it gives the user the possibility to save your progression anywhere in any game in up to 4 slots per game. The screen ratio is a classic 4:3 but there are optional filters to have a "pixel perfect" image or a retro vibe with CRT refresh lines. The controller feels almost the same as the original and the gameplay and even bugs, lag and visual glitches are all there in their retro glory. The only major problem, for me, is the controller's cable length. At 2.5 foot long, it is way to short to enjoy properly. The HDMI and power cables that are included aren't long enough so that you can move the console around the living room so you either have to sit close to the TV like in the good old days or you need to get a longer HDMI cable and a power cable extension to be able to sit at a reasonable distance (which I did). Another issue, which wouldn't be an issue for everyone, is that the only input is HDMI so you can't directly plug it in an old TV, which I would've loved to do. Overall it's a great investment. I can now play classic games with my daughter without the fear that she'll mess up my console settings or that she unknowingly buys stuff using my account on modern consoles or PC. It probably could've been better, it sure isn't revolutionary but it's amazing for what it is: a plug and play solution for classic NES games.

  • from CALGARY

Fun for the family!

Great system - brings back memories.

  • from Kitsilano, BC

Awesome Living Room addition!

Exactly like the original.. the only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is because of the really short length of the controller cord - you have to sit very close to your TV. Apart from that - expect nothing less than the awesomeness of the original NES!

  • from Port Moody, BC

Instant Classic

Worth every penny. Super easy to use, save anywhere feature is great. Only gripe is the length of the controller cables. But entirely worth putting up with for this many amazing games.

  • from Calgary, AB

NES Classic

The system is fantastic; the only downside is the length of the cord on the controller. You will want to buy a cord extender.

  • from Richmond, BC


I could go on for hours about how great this system is, but I'll save that for my book..haha jk. Seriously, though, It's better than I had hoped for, and I love it! I took 1 star off, not because, the controller cable length, (there's actually a good technical reason behind that involving limitations of the communication protocol used, basically, it was meant for accessories connecting to the Wii Mote, not to go directly to a console) but because of the selection of games. Now don't get me wrong, this has the best selection of titles that any clone system has ever had. I just feel some of the games they added were not as great as ones they could have added, but that's just my personal opinion. Games that I personally would have liked to see included with the system are; Dragon Warrior, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game, Blades of Steel, Rad Racer, and River City Ransom. Of course there's many more, but I was shocked to see these titles left out, some more than others. It's a shame the system doesn't have an official method for adding new games from the Nintendo e-Shop. I can't help but wonder if Nintendo will simply release another version with a different game selection. I'm also waiting for them to release the SNES Classic Edition, and who knows maybe even a N64 Classic Edition.

  • from Duncan, BC

If you can find one, buy it

This thing brings back all of my childhood memories of plying Nintendo without having to fuss with the cartridges. My only complaint is the cable length. Why did they make the controller cables so short?! Do yourself a favor and buy the cable extensions and maybe a hdmi extension as well.

  • from Halifax

Pretty dang awesome!

I love this little thing! A great selection of NES games in an adorable little NES box. The build is solid and the controller feels just like a classic Nes. My biggest hang up is the cord length, and there's a few missing games I'd like to see such as Ice Hockey and Duck Tales.

  • from toronto

Blast from the past !

An absolute nightmare to get my hands on a unit. Timing is everything. Once it arrived and I held this little mini it was pure love! Such a retro feel. So well done. The sounds, the pixels all bringing back childhood memories my own children and now enjoying ! Will gladly have my kids enjoy these classic games vs today's 'video' options. Now for a second joystick.

  • from Richmond, BC

What's not to love?

What's not to love? Well, let's start with the included controller. At around 2.5" in length, the controller cable is really adding to the nostalgic experience of sitting too close to you TV. A 6-10ft cord would have been nice. - 1 Star Tip: Rather than spending more money on an extension cord, opt for a wireless controller from Nyko, or MyArcade (Recommended). Next, how about that it doesn't appear to "Officially" support adding more games. There's also no internet connectivity, so no E-Shop. The included HDMI Cable is also a lot thicker then it needs to be, and a thinner higher gauge cable would have been nice. Also, for someone unknown reason, Dragon Warrior didn't make the cut for the list of 30 Games! I'm still shocked by this. - 1 Star P.S. If you order this online it comes in a bubble envelope, and mine was squished :(

  • from Vancouver, BC

Big hype for this, but it's meh due to the game selection

I bought this along with a second controller and I was very excited for it to arrive in the mail. Plugged it all in, sat 3 feet from the TV due to the short controller length and started to play some games. Wife and I were pretty bored after about 20 minutes of playing some of the more popular games. Then we put it away and did something else. This is over-hyped for the game selection, only a few multi-player games and some are not worth playing.

  • from London, Ont

Great throwback to a gaming classic!

This system is an absolute blast to play! The games that come pre-loaded are some of my favourites from the original NES! It includes the first 3 Mario games, Zelda, Donkey Kong, and other fan favourites! A perfect gift for any Nintendo or retro game fan, as well as for kids! Some games may be a tad difficult for kids/beginners but it's a good challenge! My only complaint is the length of the controller cables. They are very short so I needed to buy a longer hdmi cord to make the system and controllers reach my couch. :)

  • from Toronto, ON

1985 all over again!

Awesome....just awesome.

  • from Montreal

Back in time!

Wait in line before store's opening and totally worth it! So much fun! Love it!

  • from Markham, ON

A blast from the past!

Wow, I'm able to relive my childhood and share with my daughter these included games! The console is really small, the one included controller is very short. The console is powered bu a micro USB cable and wall wart. This must be a first world problem, just swapped out the HDMI cable and removable micro USB cable with a 10 feet cable so the console is in easier reach. At least it works for me. I have a Wii classic controller that works with the NES Classic just saved myself from buying a second controller when it becomes available.
