For those who also grew up sometime in the 80's to early 90's, there's a good chance the NES was part of your childhood. Here in the Philippines however, most of us grew up with the Famicom instead.
So I'm really happy I managed to get one of these this weekend:
Our local game store was able to import both the NES Classic Edition and the Famicom Mini (and as with the rest of the world, stocks were sold out almost immediately)! The NES was cheaper (lower import/shipping costs I guess), had games in English and had better options for the controller, but I still went with the Famicom since it's what I grew up with!
I can't get over how tiny this thing is! It's the same console that introduced me to video games, only a lot more adorable! Sadly, we no longer have the original Famicom we used to own. So being able to purchase an official, miniature version helps fill the void! This one will be properly taken care of!
Christmas has come early and it feels like the 80's all over again!
