Hackers unlock NES Classic, upload new games via USB cable | Ars Technica

Now this is impressive. The NES Classic console was a big hit at Christmas and why wouldn’t it be? Bring back a beloved game system, pre-loaded with 30 games, for only $80?

Ninetendo said that they had no intention of releasing any additional games for it, so the modding community got to work. It turns out that you can add more games to it with nothing more than a USB cable and some freely available software.

Honestly, with it literally being this easy, I have to wonder if this wasn’t installed intentionally.

Modders have yet to discover the limits of the Classic’s memory or interface. So far, players who’ve exceeded the system’s shipping default of 30 haven’t reported issues with adding more; the above video shows a system with 25 additional titles, including beloved third-party hits like Contra and Battletoads.
