Nintendo’s Japan-only Mini Famicom lets you out-hipster gaming friends – Ars Technica

Sure, you might think you’re the most hip, cool, finger-on-the-pulse-of-gaming kinda guy having pre-ordered Nintendo’s upcoming emulation box, the Nintendo Classic Mini NES. But after you’ve invited everyone round to fawn over the detail in the Mini NES cartridge slot, served a few light beverages, and begun to feel really good about your choices in life, along comes your older, beardier, always-slightly-more-trendy friend. Tucked under his arm, just in sight, is Nintendo’s Japan-only Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer, otherwise known as the Mini Famicom.

Distraught, you begin talking about how your Mini NES comes with 30 built-in games in a vain attempt to cushion the blow, but to no avail. The Mini Famicom with its Japan-exclusive games and import-only cachet has stolen your thunder. Oh yes, check and mate my friend. You’ve been well and truly out-hipstered.
