Nintendo has been playing with our heartstrings lately. Earlier this month, the Japanese brand announced that it would discontinue sales of its incredibly popular NES Classic Edition console. Following that, re-sale prices of the NES skyrocketed with most going for around $400, or six times the original retail price, and some consoles were even listed at $25,000. Then last week, rumors started circulating that the NES Classic Edition was being discontinued to make way for a SNES Classic Edition, but nothing concrete has been confirmed.
However, if you're still set on owning a NES Classic Edition, all hope is not lost. Best Buy announced on Twitter that it will have limited quantities of the NES Classic Edition available today.
According to The Verge, the drop will be in store only and will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Some NYC stores will have a ticketing system in place, which begins before the doors even open. Whether you're trying to cop to fulfill a childhood fantasy, or you just wanna make those resale dollars, it seems like it would be wise to get down early.
