The NES Classic Edition will run your only $60 and will plug right into your TV using an HDMI cable. The bundle of games will include classics such as Donkey Kong, Mario Bros, Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda.
The console will also come with the iconic NES controller which is designed to emulate the original pad. You will be able to buy another controller for $10 a pop and you’ll probably want to since some of the games will support multiplayer.
