Nintendo is making a pure nostalgia play with the SNES, but if you want to learn the latest in video games (and comic books, movies, and TV), you've gotta attend this "comic festival." Here's how you can win tickets.
Nintendo launched a NES microconsole over Christmas, and it proved to be pretty damn popular. The $59.99 console was a mini version of the original, which came with over 30 NES titles preloaded, including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy and Metroid.
It was so popular, in fact, that a lot of people were unable to find one. And on sites like eBay, the consoles were selling for around four to five times their retail price. So when Nintendo decided to discontinue the console worldwide earlier this week, they were basically giving up a license to print money.
