Here's another look at the Mini NES, this time on a totally 80s laser grid

Nostalgia's a hell of a drug, eh? Nintendo's banking on it this fall when it releases the Mini NES for $60. It doesn't seem like a risky venture, though; it feels like a smart one. This thing will sell like hotcakes. Still not convinced? W...   read
