NES Classic: Nintendo console is re-released for gamers to buy

Share

Nintendo's is re-releasing its incredibly popular NES Classic system at select stores today, including Best Buy and ThinkGeek for its original $59.99 price. They first released the updated version in 2016, selling out in record time. The games on the NES Classic are generally good and the loadout is worth playing through if you're looking for a nostalgic slice of gaming. Nintendo expects the system to be available for the rest of the year, as they mentioned on Twitter back in May.

One unfortunate drawback - at least according to Gizmodo - of the newer N30 over the older controller is that it will no longer work with desktop computers, having been made specifically for use with the NES Classic console.

Let's be honest, though, you're going to want to get two rather than one.

Beginning Friday, June 29, you should begin to see the plug-and-play NES Classic return to stores. "This system and the #SNESClassic Edition system are expected to be available through the end of the year".

It's been incredibly hard to find the Nintendo NES Classic since it was launched in late 2016, and Nintendo even stopped producing it at the height of its popularity. As of Friday, you can now pick up the NES Classic Edition.

Trump says Saudi Arabia has agreed to increase oil production
Saudi authorities acknowledged that the two leaders had a conversation but had no immediate comment on its substance. Benchmark Brent crude LCOc1 was up $1.54 at $79.39 a barrel after jumping as much as $1.85 to session high of $79.70.

Industry experts agree that Nintendo needs to make up for the NES Classic Edition fiasco during its original launch.

Less expensive, coming in at a suggested retail price of almost half of its former iteration at $25 (the NES30 model sold for ~$40), the N30 is sleeker than its predecessor as well. Thankfully, most are limiting orders to one per customer to discourage scalpers.

After the initial stocks ran out, it was nearly impossible to get one for the original retail price.

At the writing of this story, the NES Classic was still available at several retailers around the world. You can check availability on Target's website, and every single local store we checked had the system in stock. Get 'em before they're gone!
