Nintendo Discontinues the NES Classic Edition, Even Though It’s So in Demand You Can’t Get One


Throughout April, [Nintendo of America] territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.

This makes no sense to me. I’ve been waiting to buy one at the regular retail price, but it looks like that’s never going to happen.
