Would you buy an N64 Mini?

So Big N has announced a NES Mini, a itty-bitty NES miniature that has 30 (great!) games stored inside. No cartridge slot, not internet or external connectivity. And some official NES controllers that are Wiimote compatible.

It MAY come to pass that Nintendo puts out minis for all of its consoles. . . including the N64. Would you be interested in an N64 mini console? What about a Wiimote compatible N64 controller? Would you lose you mind if the controllers came out in multiple colors to challenge the notion of what a complete controller collection is?

The idea is great for the gamers still stuck in retro land, like me.

Collectible "N64 Mini N64 controllers" is the coolest possibility yet!
If an N64 Mini were to come, it too would have a set amount of pre-installed games, but what if they took it a step further by then?
Each collectible controller could have "more games", to capture what the Nintendo 64 represents: expansion.

:blink: you just blew my mind with that thought of having even more N64 controllers to collect! I just hope that if that should ever come into existence, that they are A.) of the same quality (in terms of joystick) as the originals or better and B.) that the controllers are identifiable with some type of custom marking (so that we can easily say "oh that's one of the newest/latest generation controllers) because otherwise there's not really a difference between the originals and the new re-releases except maybe the packaging/box.

Good point.
Judging by how it works on the NES Mini, the controller ports would resemble Wii/WiiU ports, so at the least their plugs would be different.

The problem is that it would take away from the N64 console "look"!

@DDR: The NES controllers are IDENTICAL on the outside, but the cord ends with that funky wiimote plug-in, that the wii classic controller has. So the thought here is an IDENTICAL N64 controller with a different plug. But how many colors ?!?!? >:-]

I have to say that I'm inclined to by the NES controller even if I don't get the NES mini (1) because I'm a sucker for anything of that design, and (2) with the hope I can play VC games on my Wii and Wii U with it. (One controller included with the NES Mini, but Big N will also sell the controllers separately). The same would CERTAINLY go for a N64 controller to use on those systems without an expensive adaptoid or a Ralphnet creation.

It is appealing to me, as is the mini NES. I have the games I want though pretty much, so it likely wouldn't be a really high priority unless it was a super good deal

I would buy 2 for sure. One to use and the other to keep minty fresh in box. Here is the tough one though. What 30 games would be included? I would love to hear everyone's thoughts.

As above - I would definitely buy two! One to keep minty new, one to play. How about awesome new funtastic options as well? Or keep it simple and classy with the Charcoal. Interesting thought indeed. Agreed as above the control sticks would need to be of similar quality or better.
