Nintendo Discontinues NES Classic Edition


When will they learn? Due to supply issues, Nintendo has decided to call it a day on further production of their NES Classic Edition. A Nintendo rep told IGN the mini console was never a long-term product but added extra shipments due to increased demand. What were they expecting? The concept was brilliant; it allowed older gamers an opportunity to relive childhood memories at a decent price and it gave the younger generation a taste of what games were like back in the 80s. Nintendo had announced the NES Classic Edition sold 1.5 million consoles as of January this year. Alas, this seems like another misstep by Nintendo after the poor execution of the Wii U. Let’s hope the Switch doesn’t fall down the same hole.
