Nintendo dropped the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition on November 11. Right from its release day, it has become one of the hottest items of the year. As there is high demand and low supply, the customers are highly disappointed. Fret not because here’s a bit of good news. The console is still available. Wondering where? Here are some hints.
Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, originally released in 1985. Perhaps this feature has turned the console into a huge hit. It’s been reported that some of the major outlets sold the piece in less than ten minutes. As we mentioned earlier, it is a smart move by Nintendo to garner attention, knowing that it could restock before the holiday shopping season is over. Limiting supply could be a company’s strategy of controlling sales growth. An incredible trick, indeed!
There is no denial that Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition has emerged as the only console that has left the public clamoring for more this holiday season. Right now, online moguls like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart are running out of stock. There are also countless problems with NES Mini pre-orders, which fail to meet demand.
However, don’t be disappointed. Consumers can still have a chance to own the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition. How? A new stock update is already hinted by Express.
There is also a tracker website to help buyers stay updated about the console. The site gives away some valuable information regarding the Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition. One can easily track down where units of the NES Mini are available around the world. It was obtainable during Black Friday and will continue to be available beyond Cyber Monday, according to NE.
You can also check eBay, where the consoles were being resold for as much as $390 (A$522), which is quite higher than the original selling price of $60 (A$81).
Meanwhile, YouTube user AlphaOmegaSin also tried to drop some major hints about Nintendo Mini NES Classic Edition availability. He posted a video in which he talked about some enterprising people who were selling the console for hundreds of thousands of dollars on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist.
