People rather have a NES that plays 30year old games, than a new PS4 I guess...

Nintendo is laughing all the way to the bank, the insides of that NES mini probably cost them less than 20$ to make.

(a rasberry pie   Raspberry Pi is plenty to emulate a nes)

Controller, wire, box are probably all pretty cheap too, nintendo is makeing mad cash on each sale of these.

^ this one is like 22$.

Its like a tiny mini computer... but its powerfull enough to emulator a NES game.

What do you guys think, should pre-orders no matter how far the game is out be included in the software rankings?



Zelda and splatoon doing well...and the NES classic somehow doing even better at $250 lol

As one can see I've decided to include all software pre-orders in the rankings. If people don't like it we can just go back to just games in the top 20 + games releasing in the current month.



Nice to see KH end the monthly chart at #29. Hoping it starts off August strong.



has the monthly had its last update yet (for this month)?



Switch doing amazing... Ps4 doing great to after 4 years.
