Wtb nes classic edition

Postby Zexhuffer » Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:35 pm

Like it says above that's what I'm looking for but not willing to spend 3-4 times what it sold for.

If you have one or know someone selling one let me know

Thanks

Keep an eye on kijiji. I have been and I picked one up today for $200. Double what it cost on release, but half of what most are selling for.

Being an avid sneaker fan I know that "limited stock" drives up hype and generates buzz.
I hate the resale aspect of sneaker culture, but I understand the "limited quantity" in the sneaker realm.

I have no idea why a game manufacturer like Nintendo does this tho.
To me it does not make sense, they have MASSIVE demand which I understand.
But why would they would want to anger fans and have such a limited release.

I'm not an avid gamer, but this does not happen when a hype game releases does it ?
I mean you don't have true shortages of the latest greatest MK release do you ?

I'd love to add an NES Mini to my lineup, but only if the price was on point. My buddy paid $120, that is about my limit.
Same for the SNES Mini, I'll try to get one, but I wont go bananas to seek one out.

It actually angers me that Nintendo does this, especially when so much of what I read said this would not be the issue with SNES classic.

the SNES classic will apparently be much more numerous and people shouldn't have trouble getting them. (apparently) So we will see.
$200 is a bit much but I said eff it, I want to play some retro games and I only have a handful for my retron 5.

I just picked one up at bestbuy. They had at least 100. Odd that the Best Buy had 1000 in stock across the entire country but 100 are at the Brampton location.

Not odd. I think the coolest gamers live in Brampton. 8) :D

... but I'll stick to my original SNES with Super Multitap and carts. Super Bomberman Rulez!
