As promised, Nintendo is bringing back the NES Classic Edition after a brief discontinuation period. The mini-console will be available at stores beginning June 29th, the company announced on Twitter.
And with Nintendo saying they expect the Classic to last through the year definitely makes this news better knowing they didn't make only ten again.
I would love to get one. Fingers crossed for more than a few.
Definitely. I legitimately believe we have a better shot this time. And if for some crazy reason I don't, well.. I'm beating up the first person I think I can take.
The snes is in ample supply now, my Walmart has like 6 just laying there, the demand has died and now real gamers can pick them up easily without scalpers trying to charge us 300
Given that I often see the SNES classic, I now have some optimism that I’ll get my hands on one of these.
Nintendo should just produce the NES and SNES classic for years or until the demand is at all time low then stop making them. What a dumb ass move to stop something that was flying off the shelves. I swear Nintendo has sometimes shit in their head instead of an actual brain haha. I would just buy this and the SNES to put on my shelf, being as I already use a Raspberry Pi 3, no need to play with this :D
It saves you money and resources by ensuring all products will sell out quickly. By waiting until demand is at an incredibly low stop production you are guaranteeing that some units will remain on store shelves for a long period of time. Which is something Nintendo doesn't like doing.
It's about F'n time, but it'll likely still be a struggle to readily buy one for months...
:-) got to catch them all.
will trade my nes classic for a switch if anyone needs one now
Nintendo REALLY needs to either include wireless controllers or make the cords longer. I don’t even play my snes mini for this very reason. Yes I’m aware of extensions and wireless controllers for the system but I have no interest in spending any additional money on this console.
NES Classic to be sold out on June 29th
Meh. I played a friend's and the nostalgia wore off real quick. Might be a "must have" for some, but for the gamers I know, most of whom are old enough to have played the original, it's just another thing to collect dust after a week or two.
Strange that they haven't announced what's next in the classic line-up. Are they going to follow up with an N64 Mini or a Gameboy Mini?
