Are you ready for some Nintendo nostalgia? Well conveniently in time for the holidays, Nintendo has released the NES Classic Edition for all the die-hard gamers out there. Not only will you get the console, but they are also throwing in 30 classic games from the 1980’s. Be prepared for back-orders because this thing is probably already sold out. Released on Friday, November 11th, many retailers like Amazon have claimed that the console had sold out in under 20 seconds. 

NES Classic Edition and 30 games for $59.99


The price point of this console is likely the cause for its popularity. For the price of a PS4 or XBOX1 game, you can gift someone a throwback console with 30 games.

The device is in such high demand that some folks on Ebay are selling the device for over five times as much as the retail price.

It’s unlikely that you will be able to purchase the device in time for Christmas, but if Nintendo plans to do a deal like this again, make sure you get in line quickly!

If you want to try and pick the console up from a local retailer, check out their website for the best chance at scooping one up. Here’s a list of retailers that might have them in stock.

  • GameStop (no pre-orders, first come first serve basis)
