Nintendo NES Classic Edition has been sold out since day 1. When it was launched on Nov. 11, stores immediately put up the sign "out of stock" as all the units were gone in mere minutes after the sale started.
Thus, on the same day of its release, the Nintendo NES Classic Edition was declared the hottest item of the year. Apparently, Nintendo was not expecting this kind of outcome so the company was overwhelmed.
In fact, Nintendo was not able to supply the restocks requested by reseller stores because it only produced a small number of units. Now the company is trying its best to meet the customer's demand for Nintendo NES Classic Edition.
Moreover, as there are still many people who would like to get their hands on the Nintendo NES Classic Edition console, some resellers took advantage of the situation and sold units at prices that are much higher than the console's original selling price of just $60. Many scalpers put the console on sale for as much as $5000.
Buyers should not fall for scams like this and if you are really desperate to have the Nintendo NES Classic Edition, do not worry because there are stores where the units are still available despite being low on supply. And the best part is that most are selling the consoles at its original price or at least under $300.
