NES Classic Edition

Nintendo NES Classic Edition Mini

The NES Classic Edition is perhaps the most hyped gift of the season.

Nearly three decades after its launch, Nintendo (NTDOF) has stuffed 30 of its classic games -- from Mario Bros. and Legends of Zelda to Pac-Man and Castlevania -- into one mini console. The USB-powered system serves them up in a Netflix-style menu that makes it easy for scrolling. It comes with one controller -- the second is sold separately ($10).

The bad news is it's nearly impossible to track down a retailer with one in stock. Companies like Walmart (through a third-party provider) and eBay have it available but at markups as high as $500. Some merchants say they're getting new shipments in soon.
