Hot for the Holidays: Gift 1

Have a tech lover in your life? Struggling to find the perfect and coolest gift? News 12 Long Island's Andrew Ehinger is counting down the top 10 tech gifts this holiday season in The Download: Hot for the Holidays. So what came in at number one?



It's time to go back to the 80s! Landing at number one this year is the NES Classic Edition. Nintendo has created a retro machine that looks like its original console, just shrunk down. So much, it can fit in the palm of your hand.



The throwback system hooks into a TV with an HDMI cable and comes loaded up with 30 of Nintendo's popular and classic games. Super Mario Brothers, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Zelda are just a few games. Unlike the original system, users can now save their games.



The NES Classic Edition costs just $60, the starting price of some video games. However, it's a hot item, and many stores have been sold out. Nintendo assures customers that it will re-stock stores every week to make sure everyone can get their hands around this classic.
