Huh, so it's a 2016 reprint for the US... Neat.
I have the original 2010 limited edition with the booklet and CD.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

I have the semi-limited second run of that myself.  Honestly the CD and booklet aren't all that great, so if you got the Nintendo Selects run, you're not missing much.

There was a CD and booklet for the first run?  What were in them?

The booklet has a small selection of art/screenshots and one or two sentences from Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka, and Koji Kondo on what I guess they considered the 11 "main" Mario games at the time.  SMB1, SMB2/USA, SMB3, World, All-Stars, 64, Sunshine, New SMB, Galaxy, New SMB Wii, and Galaxy 2.

That's the good part.  The CD contains exactly one music track from each of those (sans All-Stars), and 10 sound effects/fanfares from SMB1.

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/10/emio_releasing_nes_advantage-style_joystick_for_the_nes_classic_edition

We now have a Fight Stick based on the NES Advantage that will be compatible with it, though I can't really think of why you would need this.

The bigger news is EMiO is also making a Turbo NES controller with a B+A button and a 9 ft Cable, the last point being an absolute god send.

It's only a matter of time til we get a Power Glove.

I'm hesitant to trust third party controllers, but I actually like the idea of an NES Advantage.

If someone were to make some decent NES Bone Controllers that would be pretty awesome in my opinion.

So Nyko is making a Wireless controller though it's slightly ugly and doesn't have Turbo.

Couldn't secure a second control, but I got my console alright. Might settle for one of these third party controls though.

For once a non-3rd-Party controller option and one that has a unique functionality, you just need an extension cord for it to be perfect.

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/09/nintendo_is_resurrecting_the_nes_classic_mini_and_increasing_snes_classic_inventory

Nintendo is gonna produce more NES Classics and will sell them in the Summer of 2018.  Hopefully this means the scalpers will start giving up at least for the NES Mini much like most Amiibos.

So long as the impatient and desperate provide a market for them, not likely.
