Back in the day when our kids were in grade school we got the first Nintendo one Christmas. That was the time of the first Mario Brothers and I can remember the amazing fun that console was. Not so many games that you went broke, but just hours of fun trying to get Mario to jump over things while the sound effects went toodle loop.
Now Nintendo has brought back the original console and it's selling like crazy. I wish I'd known about this 2 weeks ago because I'd have been tempted to get one or two. Now they're sold out in most places. Who'd have thought the past would be back in our present day of really high tech games.
The ABC story claims the console is 60 dollars, but look at Amazon and it's 229 but out of stock. So much for that idea.
