Reggie Fils-Aime Urges Consumers Not To Buy SNES Classics From Scalpers

Instead, he said that production for the NES Classic was based on the fact that other retro consoles before the NES Classic were low sellers. It's an low-priced, nostalgia-laced product that's being made in limited quantities, and it's available for a limited time only. It retails for $80, but it's also very hard to find - so of course eBay flippers are already charging outrageous prices for something they don't even have yet. Nintendo's total lack of communication about when pre-orders would go live, and where, resulted in a lot of frustrated consumers. Well, you shouldn't be - at least not if you take Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at his word. Instead, he said it was "outside our control" in an interview with the Financial Times.

Despite feeling like "the demand is there and the supply chain is there", Fils-Aime is concerned that the demand is still growing and might be unmanageable in time for the holiday period. "You shouldn't have to pay more than $79.99". Right: The Super NES Classic Edition. Following that, a trickle of units is likely to continue throughout the year, with the occasional retailer offering overpriced bundles featuring the console with a bunch of junk you otherwise wouldn't buy.

Nintendo fans are quite excited for the upcoming SNES Classic Edition, however, following the short supply of NES Classic fans are quite skeptical about the status of the available stock for SNES Classic Edition at launch.

However, given that's never been the company's style, and we can expect more shortages throughout the holiday season. After all, judging from how fast its predecessor, the NES Classic, came and went, the same was bound to happen to this 21-game compilation console.
