Spring is a time for renewal. Just ask Nintendo's bank account.
I wonder if the Playstation was never created...hmmm and there was only Nintendo around, hmm, I think it would be probably just another average toy manufacturer.
What are you even saying?
Check his comment history. He just trash talks everything that isn't Sony
Not sure. Its just deserts gor all who doubted Nintendo. The Switch will probably also carry the holiday.
You do realize that Nintendo is 57 years older than Sony, right?
This is impressive indeed.
Why is it impressive that a $60 thing outsold a $300 thing? It would have been impressive if the NES Classic was $300 and it outsold the PS4/XB1.
@ firelogic +1 agreed
Considering they go for three times or more the price on ebay (check completed listings) if Nintendo would have made the stock don't think it's a hard guess to say ppl would have still bought it
Are you saying this is somehow reflective of the value of exclusives? So retarded this hits on so many things like nostalgia, awesome tiny nes, collector's value to name a few. If you're going to be sarcastic with your comment then at least provide some substance instead of comparing apples to oranges.
Just a ridiculous comment by you.
Still impressive considering what it is.
However, I thought these were sold out everywhere and production long stopped.
Good logic if it is not just something your saying because it is convenient.
PS4 cost 249 and SWITCH cost 299. So if PS4 passes SWITCH in sales in the future will you it is not impressive that a 249 dollar thing with no game included outsold a 300 dollar thing with a game included?
I dont know what the definitive numbers are, but the amount in stock probably sold out faster,... all two nes classics vs. The ps4 and xbox one stock.
not really, it didn't sell this much because of anything comparative to other consoles. it sold well cause its a limited time collectors item.
Yeah, let's stop making it!
Nintendo's logic. and try to find EddieNX and he will definitely says Nintendo made the right call. maybe even the best call they have ever made!
Nintendo apparently dislikes money. Either that or they're trying to make rupees a new form of currency.
Rupee is a form of currency.
LOL........ummmmmm........Like DILBIG5 said it is a form of currency over a BILLION people use it.
Woooow. Honestly did not know it was Indian money, my bad!
Before you commented. You should've googled/bing'd rupees. Would've took seconds.
It was obviously cutting into Switch sales, so they had to cut it out of the picture. When those people could no longer get the NES Classic, they'd have to go for Switch.
Nintendo is genius, and this is certainly a master stroke, and their discontinuing it is why the switch is doing so well.
It all makes sense now!!!
/obvious sarcasm should be obvious.
I don't see how this is possible since I can't find one in ANY store in my area or online at a regular price.
Final shipments went out about 4 weeks ago , scalpers got most of them.. unless you used a stock site like brickseek or istock and showed up right away youre sol
I used those sites and never got a notification. haha I just said eff it, got launchbox and all the roms on my PC.
The Walmart near me got 3 in a couple weeks ago. I got lucky they were putting them out when I was there & I got all 3 of them.
For 60 dollars and the announcement that it will no longer be manufactured, it is no surprise. Now watch Ebay to see the units on display for three times the price or even more.
I still want one, never could find one.
One mistake I won't make again is IF a SNES mini does come, I'll do the same thing I did with the switch, get in line hours or a day early to get one.
Not missing my prob fav system ever but in mini form.
haha! I'm with you. I fully pre paid my SWITCH off way ahead of time plus a couple of games, just to make sure. Then made sure I took the day off, and got mine.
I also missed on the classic. Now the SNES especially if it comes with FF3(6), and super street fighter I'm in!
Oh hell yeah right there with you.
Was at game stop 4 hours early to preorder my switch, Zelda, karts and 2 pro controllers.
SNES Mini, I'll be there 4 in the mourning or even the day before, I AM NOT missing out on the mini snes, NO FUCKING WAY!
( sorry for the language!
ROFL at: 'No [email protected]
comparing a console sales to a limited collector items sales. not really good comparison.
Resellers bought them all . I hate them , cant buy anything with a little buzz anymore because resellers have bots or themselves buying up all the supply.
Good for Nintendo, played such a huge role in my life as a gamer so I'm enjoying owning one of their consoles and seeing them experience somewhat of a rejuvenation. Can't wait for Mario Odyseyy and Xenoblade 2.
Wow it even outsold x1?
It's ok, Nintendo is retarded and doesn't want to continue support for it's loyal fans and customers. They only want the support from the most casual of their consumers, and will no longer sell nes classics
it's 60 bucks tho. It's a impulse buy device. PS4 is not a impulse buy device.
No surprise considering Nintendo's attempts to artificially inflate demand. I guess they think it's cool hooking up scalpers and screwing over real fans and consumers. Screw Nintendo.
It was also only $60 bucks. Let's see how it does at $300.
considering most people have a ps4, no duh.
If 7 billion people out of 8 billion buy an iphone 9 in 2017, and 100 people buy an iphone 8 in 2018 while galaxy s9 sold 4 billion....thats common sense.
Personally I got my hands on 4 of them. 1 I gave to my son as a gift, another to an employee of mine as a bonus, opened 1 and played it and kept 1 in the box. The controllers were harder to find but I ended up with 3 of those as well.
I feel bad for all of those that actually tried to get one and couldn't. I think half of the people on here though didn't even try and instead just like to bitch about anything Nintendo. Personally I am glad they actually limit production on limited production items. Unlike others that claim something to be limited and yet they are still on shelves 2 years later from over production.
Here is to looking forward to the SNES Classic, that's the one I really want.
You have to buy Nintendo products quickly cause you never know when there going to pull the plug or make it scarce in a certain region. But why is this even news? It's a 60 dollar retro console vs 300 dollar console.
Well after reports of discontinuing production it makes sense people want their hands on it before it's gone forever.
retro game is a huge these days
It was 60 bucks.. come on, y'all reaching now
Switch only sold 260K ... whatever about the 60bucks it still means the ps4 sold like crap and the xbox sold worse.
Garbage click bait article, cuz we don't have the sale numbers, and everyone knows Nintendo didn't manufacturer enough mini- consoles to even compete against either Sorny or Microsoft consoles.
Makes sense all the unit's Nintendo sold to retailers count as sales. Nintendo gets paid on the front end for their consoles. This isn't a reflection of the numbers sold to consumers.
but i never have seen any lol crazy man!!!
This just means the PS4 sales have collapsed completely. The switch was supply constrained and only sold 260K the Ps4 was probably below 100K which bodes bad for the 18 million this year.
I thought this system was supposedly in short supply? Hmmmmmm.......
