In a recent financial meeting, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima announced that Nintendo would resume NES Classic production.
I would love to get my hands on one.
Me too. Scalpers suck, man. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a picture with someone who had bought ten or more.
Try gamestop on Wednesday or Thursday around noon that's when they get shipments
Reconfirmation is nice, but a re-launch date would have been better. I wonder if this affects Virtual Console in any form? Guess that September online launch just got more interesting.
Glad I refused to pay 1 cent above retail for one of these I knew it would come back. You just don't sell something like that and make that much money and stop. They just weren't prepared for the demand and didn't have the production ready. They've proven with the SNES classic that they've fixed this issue. Everyone I know got a SNES classic pretty easily. I'll look to grab my NES classic in a few months once they've been on the shelf for a bit.
Voted you up, but definitely disagree about ease of obtaining a Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic. I tried for weeks after initial release in Columbus, Ohio, with zero success. (Just check out all the Reddit posts of similar experiences.) EDIT: Furthermore, MAYBE Nintendo didn't anticipate demand for the NES Classic, but to have a similar issue with the SNES Classic was simply one-of-two things: One.) Lack of production resources (unlikely, but possible); Two.) Desire to build media attention.
Not to brag but i camped out day of release with 5 people i paid 30$ each and not only got all 6 but also the wireless controllers for them. We did wait 2 hours before open but still. I gift wrapped some for relatives and sold the rest. I didnt price gouge the shit out of ppl but i did make a bit of cash after spending as much as i did all together.
Apple got first dibs on the chips.
I got mine at Best Buy months ago. Glad to hear they’re not dropping it like the NES classic
It says nes classic
It is the NES Classic
Oh, I read it as SNES. Why do they have a picture of the SNES classic? Bad article lol
Nintendo dropped the NES Classic, but are now doing a U turn after scalpers have made a fortune. THANKS NINTENDO !!
Do Scalpers exclusively go after Nintendo products ?. Also you make it sound like it was done on purpose just to piss you off
I wonder if it will include 2 controllers instead of one with new production run
They’ve been saying that for almost a year. Hey, if I see one in the wild, and have spare change maybe I’ll impulse buy. No one should pay premium for it.
Hopefully they will saturate the market and scalpers wont be able to profit. We shall see.
Hey, um, that's a picture of a Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic...I mean, I know the Nintendo Entertainment Systems Classics are rare, but surely you can at least find a picture of one, no?
i need them to continue making all of these classic consoles. i want them
"Nintendo to Resume NES Classic Production" *Shows image of SNES* And yes, I'm aware they also said they would continue to produce the SNES. It's the title that makes no sense.
I loved the NES Classics. They were very very good to me. They paid for my PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and GTX 1070 video card. :)
This will likely cause retailers to open up another round of "pre-orders", I really dislike Nintendo's supply and demand tactics...only reason I even have one is because my brother in law knows someone at the Nintendo store in NYC. Like seriously, that's way too much effort to get something that should be readily available to anyone. At worst, sell it directly to the consumers through their own site even if shipping kills it lol.
