So your company has a wildly popular product that people are clamoring for to the point that there are widespread shortages, and you can’t keep up with demand? What do you do? Well if you are Nintendo you say EFF THOSE GUYS and discontinue the product.

zoom in

Yep, if you haven’t got your hands on the NES Classic Edition yet, you are SOL. After just 5 short months of life, Nintendo has decided to already discontinue the NES Classic Edition, and has stated that the last few shipments won’t come to North America. Those last few consoles will go to wherever the NOA territories are.

This means that if you have been spamming the online retailers looking for stock to turn up, you are out of luck. You might as well go over to eBay and pony up all your monies because any Classic Edition consoles left just got way more expensive to buy. Nintendo is discontinuing the NES Classic controller as well. Massive dick move, Nintendo.
