Nintendo president says you shouldn't overpay for an SNES Classic Edition

  • SNES Classic Production Has Been 'Dramatically Increased,' Says Nintendo

"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites", he said."You shouldn't pay more than $79.99". "In this case it's not [a supply issue]", Fils-Aime said. If Nintendo can indeed meet demand this year, you shouldn't have to drop more than the $80 asking price. According to Reggie, Nintendo was not holding back the stock on goal to create an artificial scarcity and added that they didn't produce enough units because retro consoles from other companies were not selling well which indicated that NES CLassic will also not sell well.

So, maybe you should hold off on the SNES Classic bidding wars and see how this works out.

A huge problem with last year's NES Classic Mini was its lack of availability to consumers.

Either way, we reckon that if you want a Switch or have promised to get someone the console for Christmas, you ought to start throwing money at Nintendo and authorised retailers. And there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply.

"We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition".

Despite retailing for $79.99, the NES Classic was going for upwards of $200 on eBay nearly immediately.

After being questioned on whether the shortage might be due to parts needed from external suppliers, the charismatic president confirmed that "there are multiple choke points" but refused to go into any further details.

"Certainly the demand is there and the supply chain is there". Nintendo, however, promises that production will get a major boost with the SNES Classic, and it's hopeful that consumers won't need to resort to price-gouging resellers to get one. Do you need a Switch in time for this holiday season?
