Ironically, zawitały are under Polish roofs not by the NES, but his unlicensed version , and actually clone Japanese version of the NES called Famicom. On the Polish market, it was a console Pegasus, and other countries fakes Japanese console bore other names, such as polystation, Little Master and Dendy.

Nintendo Mini Classic: back to the roots
Although you can complain about the closed platform, it is in fact a new-old Nintendo console is a real return to the roots. Just connecting to a screen, turn on and play – no nonsense type of badges, achievements, social networking, and everything that is usually accompanied by entertainment today.
Sure, the console with a similar or even larger set of games you can have a fraction of the price of a new NES, but … Nintendo Classic Mini, however, always original hardware from Nintendo, which for hobbyists is still important. In addition, it is worth remembering that the console through HDMI without problems is connected to a modern monitor or TV.
In this context, the proposed Polish price, amounting to 299 zlotys for a version with a single and 339 for a version with two pads, appears to be acceptable . The game is one thing, but accompanying the new NES-those whiff of nostalgia can still be considered priceless. Buyer console will be able to see this with its European premiere on the 15th of November.
