Well, let's be real...Save for Virtual Console sales, most of the profit was made off of these games a long time ago. Space is not a concern. I really think they are being stingy. If the aim was to re-introduce the SNES to people that didn't have the privilege of growing up with it, they really could have gone the extra mile.

Oh well, I'm sitting here with carts of everything here that I want, so I'm not the one getting hosed if this thing doesn't live up to expectations.

I think Ashley meant "beefy" in terms of game length, not file size.
The NES classic had mostly short games, but the SNES Mini has more time-consuming titles.

Space was never a concern because even the NES classic had 2GB of flash memory if I recall correctly.

Indeed, I meant "beefy" in terms of game length, not file size.

Shouldn't be much of a concern with SNES Classic also, if it would have the same 2GB of flash memory. I think majority of SNES library in rom + zipped is around 1,6gb and you never would have more than 10% of those games on your console probably.

Super excited about this, especially with Star Fox 2 finally getting released. The lineup is missing a few SNES essentials, but it's still a pretty great lineup overall and doesn't have any outright junk games like the NES Classic did (cough ICE CLIMBER cough cough).

And, interestingly, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting in favor of Super SF II, which is definitely the better game. Wonder why Capcom made that decision though.

I'm sure I'm the only person on the planet that would want Alpha 2 instead, right? Hahaha!

I'd honestly like a non-Street Fighter fighter on here as well, but Nintendo let Rare go so KI is out of the question. I don't know if a T rated game would fly on here but I think KI would would be the only non-Street Fighter fighter that would fly.

I mean I guess they could have gotten Primal Rage, LOL.

In the US, Super SFII was released to relative apathy. That was when the burnout factor on SF started to kick in. In the traditional cannon here, Hyper Fighting is considered the "essential" SNES version of Street Fighter.

Yeah, the online consensus definitely seems to be that the US is getting the better deal in this regard at least.
I think Super SFII is much better, but I will admit I'm a very casual fighting game fan.
