The new one is bit smaller than the NES Classic, with a total of 21 games compared to the original’s 30. Once upon a time in Singapore, I held the Nintendo Entertainment System in my hands as a young boy.

Romero announced via Twitter that he’s now auctioning off his original five Doom 2 floppy disks on eBay and will sign them if the victor requests so. Will sign if you like (if you win).

The auction began at $10, and is set to end today at 15:13.
