One of the hardest to find items over the 2016/17 holiday season was the Nintendo NES Mini Classic, a retro gaming console with HDMI outputs with 30 classic games pre-loaded. It sold out in retail and digital stores with some of them being sold for hundreds of dollars online. According to TIME.com, the console was a surprise success on it’s planned short-term run selling 2.3 million copies. Nintendo then discontinued the NES Mini in April, while also having big success with the launch of their modern console the Switch.
The slim chance of getting the NES Mini has been reintroduced by ThinkGeek today with a sale that will not last long. The bundles with the console and special add-ons vary between $140-220. These will sell-out very quickly.
