Why doesn’t Nintendo want my money? NES Classic rant
So there has been a lot of hype about the NES Classic Edition when it was released, I like many fans wanted to buy one when it was first announced. The mini console was impossible to get when it launched which then in turn created more buzz and that led to a market where people were willing to spend hundreds on the $60 console. Guess what we’re two months in and the hype has pretty much gone away and I’m no closer to being able to purchase one since launch! Why is it so difficult to get a $60 system from the stores and with the demand being on the high side why doesn’t Nintendo make more units so they can just take my money? In this video rant I go into detail surrounding the second hand market for the NES Classic and share my frustrations on what I think is happening.
