When players purchase NES Classic Edition Console, included in the box are the NES Classic Edition System, One NES Classic Controller, HDMI cable, AC adapter and 30 pre-installed games. According to IGN, the console's cord is too short to the point that it limits how players can play games. It is only 2.5 feet or 36 inches and Nintendo does not sell any extension cables or wireless controllers. If only the cord is not short or if it's wireless, everything would be perfect.
