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

Posted September 12, 2017

"You shouldn't [have to] pay more than $79.99", said Fils-Aimé. "In this case it's not [a supply issue]", Fils-Aime said. Turn that frown upside-down my friend because, if Reggie Fils-Aime is to be believed, the holy house of Nintendo is going to take care of those greedy hoarders. 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. Nintendo has said, several times, that the upcoming SNES Classic Mini will not be treated the same way. According to him, there will be enough SNES Classic consoles to grab, so no one has to resort to auction sites.

For what it's worth, Nintendo promises it will produce far more Super NES Classic Edition consoles that it did with last year's NES Classic Edition.

And yet. Many of us were burned by Nintendo promises past year.

"Certainly the demand is there and the supply chain is there".

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

Two weeks ago, Nintendo announced that with the holiday period just around the corner, it would be stepping up production of its Switch in order to try and meet demand.

He did not want to go into specifics about which parts in the supply chain have created problems, and when FT pressed him, he would only say that "there are multiple choke points". But Nintendo officials say there's still a good chance to get what's expected to be one of the holiday season's hottest gifts. It's no surprise, then, that Nintendo fans were skeptical they'd be able to get the SNES Classic Edition this year. If you want a Switch, you're still going to have to fight for it.
