In the video, JerryRigEverything -- can we just call him Jerry? -- also remarks on how much smaller the NES Classic Edition is than he'd expected it to be. But despite being a solid and straightforward machine packed into a tiny package, its controller could be a serious drawback. Specifically, the controller's cable is a measly 30in long, which is drastically shorter than the 6ft cable that connected the controller to the original NES. So, unless you buy an extension cable or wiresless controllers that are hitting the market, you'll just have to, as he puts it, "be all up in Mario's business while you're playing."
But at this point, who cares about the length of the controller. That's something to worry about later, you know, after you somehow manage to buy the damn thing -- hopefully, in the next couple of weeks.
