    It's not about morals, though, Robo.

    Some people don't know enough about alternatives to trust them, so they default to buying official products. Some people don't even know there are alternatives and only trust their brand name recognition. Some people just find stock in buying 'canon' things, and the fact that it's an official Nintendo product by itself adds value.

    I agree with the mentality of emulating everything, especially to spit in Nintendo's face for their shitty practices regarding their IPs, but you can't ignore the large audience that exists that wants the official products that Nintendo is screwing over.

    If people want to buy hardware that Nintendo make, that's on them and Nintendo has every right to sell it.

    When it comes to paying for old software titles, I agree that for the most part they should be freely accessible to the public, especially older titles that you can now run anywhere and most people have bought them somewhere already. Perhaps small fees for titles that require update of licenses and w.e.
    That said, regarding the historical concern, most of these successful games likely to be in a SNES classic and the like are probably already easy to archive and store, both in physical format and in digital formats that allow for preservation.
    The historical concern is more for games limited to rare hardware, games with limited releases and availability, and things that we don't see due to localization issues or development hell/cancellation.

    I still can't believe my comment about how the SNES Mini could possibly be given some utility (make it multiplayer-centric) turned into a discussion about the morality of piracy or Nintendo's rights to sell their own IPs.

    Well, you did mention the word emulator...

    Yeah but I was talking about what could make the official product more convenient or useful than emulation. Not morally superior.

    It's not what you said, it's Robo seeming to be utterly perplexed that anybody might actually want to buy an SNES Mini when emulation exists lol.

    I'm not sure how 'it's a cool thing and I can understand why people would want it' came across that way. I was talking about the morality of emulation and Nintendo's rereleases not properly compensating the people who made the game, not bashing people who wanted to buy it because it was cool.

    When you said people want to support the official product, I assumed you meant for moral reasons and not purely because they wanted the item. I'm also really bitter that the SNES classic will now be much harder to get than the NES classic was, since I really want some of those controllers. :(
