I dont think its fair to include the NES mini into the NES sales.Both are a bit too different for that

If this is how you want to play lol But not seeing a whole connection here so why not add PS2 and PS3 sales in with the PS1 sales since they all can play PS1 games right?

At least PS2 & PS3 can legit play all PS1 games unlike the NES mini where it has a fixed number of games built-in and can't play other NES games/cartridges.

Except you blatantly ignored the PS2 and PS3 which play PS1 discs which makes them more of a PS1 than the Mini NES is a NES

But does it even plays actual NES games?
PS2 and PS3 plays actual PS1 discs.

Kind of backfired, didn't it?

 

Tell me you aren't this stupid guys.

A PS2/3 doesn't count as a PS1 because it isn't restricted to just PS1 games. Compatability with a previous console doesn't make it that console.

No wonder so many people get confused with what a console is.

If you want to play more than the 30 bundled games you'll have to buy the other model obviously.

Well then please elborate as to how the NES mini is more of an NES than a PS2/PS3 is a PS1?

If people want to play PS1 games then can just pick up a PS2/PS3.  PS2/PS3 does what a PS1 can.  

Does NES mini do what a NES can?  Or are you basing this soley on it's name/look and the type of games it can play?

Not sure who's stupid here.... >.>



Lol. Well that's one way to look at it. I would count the NES mini (and the eventual SNES and N64 minis), seperately from their original releases. They're retro-rereleases with limited features. Would we also count the two Atari Flashbacks and those Brazilian Mega Drives and whatever else towards their respective parent consoles?



I don't get the hostility in this thread. Insecure much?
The NES Mini is a slim version of the original console. It has all of the games that anyone ever played on the OG. It definitely is a NES.

I'm just sitting here and wait for for the PS1 mini.

So with all the aftermarket handhelds and consoles Mega Drive/Genesis has outsold SNES/SFamicon

SEGA WINS!

Yes we should. People are pretending that a console cannot have different SKUs with different features. By that logic we should count every SKU like Slim consoles extra because they don't come with the full feature set of the original.

Fair enough. This all will get pretty complicated then.

EDIT: Also, holy cr*p there's actually 7 Atari Flashbacks out there.

Nah, people just need to accept that NES Mini is a NES console and we're fine. Unless they want to take X360 Arcade and PS3 Slim out of the sales total and make their sales look even worse in comparison to the Wii.

Can we really compare a regular console with a plug and play one? I mean, we should compare the NES Classic to the Mini-Genesis and Mini-Ataris released over the years, not an propper mainline console. If Sony ever releases a PS1 Classic, then that would be another thing.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
