This is the one I'm using for mine, its $10 and even though I dont really use the Pi anymore (the novelty runs off after you play like 30 classic games) and it looks really cute on my desk. Theres also a SNES one on amazon thats good too.
I love my old skool nes case for my retropie!! Hey, why don't you include a link to the product and maybe an image?! Show people how awesome this little case is.

I think the point is that if you can't get one because of assholes at Nintendo not making enough, or assholes that bought them all and charge too much, there is still a way to play all these games and more.
You can even get a NES style case for the Pi:
I just built a Retropie system for my girlfriend's son. r/Retropie can tell you everything you need.
Also, I bought this case off Amazon, and it looks awesome.

Awesome job. To bad Raspberry Pi 3 doesn't have the performance to emulate N64 though. It works awesome with NES, SNES, Genesis, GBA, PS1, and MAME though so no real loss.
I use this case for mine:
Have one myself and it looks (and works) great. Front panel flips up and that's where you plug in the controllers (USB).
Can switch from SNES to nes to n64 to genesis etc without dropping the controller.
And it works with PS3 and I believe PS4 controllers via Bluetooth as well as retro controllers.
If all you want it to do is come on when the pi turns on, all you need is a 10k resistor, led and some wire. I did it just the other day to make a light light up in my new NES case. Check out the top user review here for pictures and a how to:
doesn't really matter. just make sure it has:
-2 heat sinks (just look on youtube how to install them. a toddler could do it)
-the circuit board
-the case- the standard cases are a bit boring so you might want to skip that and buy some awesome custom nes case like this
Anything else you need you can buy at walmart
I built one of these with a raspberry pi, found a good injection molded case on amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4OOY4U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The people who make the case send very detailed instructions on how to set it up including all of the steps needed for setting up the emulator on the raspberry pi I could not give this a better review. My wife was mad thinking I had paid the big bucks buying one off ebay because we had been watching them there.
this was posted the other day from amazon but was sold out. here's the direct link.
Looks to be unavailable from both.
Edit: back in stock!
If you could mass produce you'd make a nice profit. Currently this is the only console case that I found on Amazon.

Normally they're like the #1 sold case for pi on Amazon but looks like they are currently unavailable. You can still buy them on Old Skool Tools' site though. Of course you still need to put a Pi inside.
It's the Kintaro NES case, and I picked it up on Amazon.
(Got the Pimoroni Blinkt from my local Microcenter and for anyone looking to use the Blinkt with this case, know you'll need a 90 degree header adapter, I used this one from Adafruit. )
Literally the first Amazon link. Do at least one Google search before posting something ok m8? Thx
Amazon has a bunch. Some with functional power and reset buttons. I have this one for $14. NES case for Raspberry Pi: 3,2 and B+ by Old Skool Tools https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M4OOY4U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_iCWPAbZKY27X1
You can also buy an NES shaped/colored Raspberry Pi Case
This was my post! Yea currently unfortunately it’s unavailable but here’s the amazon link::

If you don't want to have to worry about a PC, and want something very easy to configure, look at getting a Raspberry Pi and RetroPie.
It's incredibly easy to set up and there's detailed instructions on that site, installing ROMs on it is as simple as putting them on a USB, plugging it into the pi and letting it do its thing.
I bought a couple of USB SNES controllers and one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M4OOY4U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It's been brilliant so far.
While it still has the cords out of the side, the cuteness factor sure won my wife over. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4OOY4U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
If I was planning to use one of those fancy console cases like this will cooling still be an issue? Should I be thinking about heat sinks an fans?
I used this case off of Amazon, it looks great. I was a little surpised on how small it was though, actually the whole Pi is much smaller than I anticipated.

I also used this is the basis for my build, but looking back I would go with a much bigger micro SD card, like 64 gig

I hope this helps you out
If you don't mind spending a little extra, you can also get a nifty case to make it look like an NES or a SNES, and there are even USB Adapters that let you use your original controllers (or pick some up on ebay).
NES case for Raspberry Pi 3,2 and B+ by Old Skool Tools
What about this one?
cool looking case. Usually get attention any time someone is over.
I used the case from Old Skool Tools and I was pleased with it. However, were I to go back and do it over, I would probably go for this Lego design
you mean something like this?
I thought this case looked pretty decent.
As some else mentioned, it's not as detailed, but it's pretty cool.
I understand. I'm not a fan of 3D prints.. They just don't look good to me.
Have you checked this out? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4OOY4U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Should have used this: Old Skool Rpi Case
I bought a raspberry pi 3, installed RetroPi and dropped it into This Case Its not official but I'm very happy!
I'm way happier with this.
AMAZON LINK: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M4OOY4U
Seems that its out of stock, hopefully back soon. This is a great case, buy it if you can find one.
Looks like it's just for 2, 3, and B+ models:
