Nintendo NES Classic Edition is officially back. After a disappointing couple of months when it has been almost impossible to get the game console, Nintendo has finally made enough units to supply to the waiting fans.
Nintendo has made the worst decision of understocking the NES Classic Edition over the holidays. Not only did the Japanese tech giant lost potential customers but it has also diminished the excitement of some of the game console's fans.
The company has simply failed to anticipate the very high demand of NES Classic Edition from sentimental fans. Note that those playing the original Nintendo Entertainment System years ago are now part of the working (and earning) working class who will not mind buying a rebooted version of their well-loved game console.
This is why it comes as no surprise that a lot of people are still willing to pay extra just to get their hands on the NES Classic Edition. As reported by BGR, the game console is already available on Amazon. Those who are seriously trying to find a unit must secure theirs now, as supply may only last for a few hours or days.
The Nintendo NES Classic Edition comes with 30 pre-installed games including but not limited to Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Dr. Mario, and Balloon Fight. The game console comes with a throwback gray NES Classic Controller connected to the unit.
According to The Verge, for hardcore gamers, the 30 pre-installed games in Nintendo NES Classic Edition will never be enough. Fortunately, hackers already found a way around this dilemma. Those who are fortunate enough to get their hands on the game console can now add more games.
It should be noted, however, that hacking the NES Classic Edition still has many risks involved including causing irreversible damage to the game console. The act may also void the warranty of the device from Nintendo.
