Gadget of The Month: Nintendo Classic Mini NES

With the festive holidays approaching, Black Friday is the perfect time to purchase some gadgets for the family.

The Nintendo Classic Mini is a miniature version of the Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in Europe in 1986.

The console has a great retro design, and an authentic feeling controller that is sure to resurrect some nostalgia. All games run off internal memory, with 30 pre-installed games.

The colourful worlds of these 30 classic NES games have never looked better on a modern television.

Whether you’re exploring the colourful and imaginative stages of Super Mario, or combing every corner of Hyrule for hidden secrets in The Legend of Zelda, this little console does a great job of displaying classic games on modern televisions.

You can choose an original 4:3 aspect ratio mode that’s crystal clear on most televisions, an artificially fuzzy CRT mode, and a Pixel-Perfect mode that gives a thinner, more modern look.

The console retails from about R1 200 - making it the best low-cost, classic game option. The Nintendo Classic Mini strikes a perfect balance between affordability, content and quality.
