NES Classic Edition Pre-Orders nixed through Amazon as sale begins tomorrow

According to TechCrunch the NES Classic Edition sold out within seconds at Amazon, and was gone within half an hour at local GameStops - all 17 units zapped off store shelves within minutes.

Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition contains 30 NES classics, of which include: Super Mario Bros. It also supports HDMI output, obviating the need for users to dig up a TV that supports RF and RCA input.

The mini machine arrived today, but limited quantities mean it's a hot commodity; some brick-and-mortar stores are imposing a limit of one per customer. So check your drawers or wherever you hold your video game accessories and you be saving yourself some cash.

The Eastport Plaza Walmart had 10 miniature NES Classics, Nintendo's nostalgia-inducing miniature Nintendo Entertainment System, to sell on Friday morning.

The most appealing feature of the Nintendo console is probably its $60 price tag.

Classic Edition from the Japanese gaming giant will hit shelves in the United States today; however, it turns out that they will be available in limited quantities. So is this Nintendo artificially limiting supply to drive up demand? Several of us here at Promptly at 2 p.m. PDT, several TechnoBuffalo staffers flooded the NES Classic Edition's listing on Amazon but we all came up empty-handed.

Given that the NES Classic Edition is, after all, a slightly retooled version of a console that was originally released in 1985 (1983 for the Japanese Famicom), these kind of prices are truly remarkable and really a testament to just how powerful that Nintendo classic library really is.
