Nintendo is no longer going to produce the NES Classic. What a dumb company.

I picked up one for me and one for my brother in the last week. Was shocked to see them in stock. They were going for $120ish on eBay lately. But since this news they're back over $200.

Ps. Super easy mod to add 600 games. Very cool. Now I just need to see if I can add master system games.

Yeah I put basically every NES game I was interested in on it....and haven't touched it in like two months. Nice to have, though.

When the thing was announced I assumed it was just to continue their streak of putting out a new piece of hardware every year, so discontinuing it now just affirms that theory for me.

Debating ordering the Switch bundle coming out next month with Zelda+season pass, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a 128gb microcard for $499...no word on new batch of non bundle Switch consoles coming and Zelda is a def buy for me and Mario Karts are usually fun so this looks like a good one...

So much for that, already sold out, this extremely limited release quantities is getting annoying...

I'm not sure why they're having supply problems. They chose the launch date. It wasn't to beat a new Xbox or Playstation console.

Nintendo has always wanted to make a profit on every single console they sell, so they intentionally restrict their supply so that there aren't a whole bunch of systems sitting on shelves. If they put out millions of Switches on day one with (let's be honest) only one game worth playing they'd sell a lot, but it would probably dry up after a bit until more games come out. Here, they are keeping demand high by trickling systems out and pretty much guaranteeing they sell everything they put out for at least the next six months until Mario comes out and the holiday demand starts.

If they are still pulling this shit in November, then they've fucked up.

They're everywhere around here. The two people I know that have one just went to the store (gamestop and walmart) and picked one up with no trouble.

Launch timing might've been for the end of Nintendo's fiscal year. For as little as I understand that stuff.

Guess they either got more or had some cancellations so I put my order in, just realized this is the first console I've purchased since my PS3 like 10 years ago.

Um why? Nintendo still going to be shipping them for many years to come. You didn't need to buy it from a third party. I mean, it's your money.

Want to play Mario Kart, and Splatoon 2 comes out in July. Don't feel like trying to beat the online rush or finding a store with some in stock when the next re-stock is announced. I can live with spending an extra $70 over retail + tax.

Blasted Mario Kart. The thing is the bane of my existence.

Also, they fixed the hop boost so it no longer works. So hurray.

Oh, yeah, got my Switch. I seem to be having the left Joy Con issue, so I picked up a Pro Controller. Add me as a friend, Flik! Friend code is in the Online Gaming ID thread.

So my case of beer is off the table?
