With all the consoles out right now, it's hard to make a decision on which one to get. There are a
few options with many different deals depending on where you buy. When it comes to gaming, choosing your console is a big step. 

If you are on a tight budget, there are a couple of options. Enter Nintendo Co. with the NES Classic. If the fact it exists isn't enough to sway you, take a look at the 7 reasons we should all get it.


Buy the NES Mini:

Price

At the moment, the NES Classic is the cheapest system on the market. At at a total of $59.99 USD, it won't break the bank. Not only will it be easy to get a system for yourself, but you can buy a couple as gifts for friends thanks to the price tag.

Nostalgia

Although there has been advancement in technology for consoles, many feel more comfortable with something less complicated. The simple controls make things easier for a great number of people: those with limited hand mobility, the elderly, and anyone not wanting to learn new controls.

Games

There's no need to dust off those old cartridges you have in storage. Because the system can hold up to 30 original NES games, it cuts down down on the space needed to store the system. Some of those games include: Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, Metroid, and Megaman 2.

Controllers

The best thing about the controller is the size. The dimensions are exactly the same as the original. If you like to play the NES Virtual Console on the Wii U, you can use the controller that comes with the NES Classic by connecting it into a WiiMote.

Suspend Points

Once upon a time, there were a few NES titles that had no checkpoint and no save system.

One of the Classic's new features allows players to save to slots with "suspend points". Press the reset button on your controller to return to the home screen and save to a slot with a suspend point. In addition to adding the suspend points, gamers can 'lock' a game at exactly where they left off to keep their current progress.
