Well, here we are again. If you go to Targets SNES Classic Page, you get a message saying “Product Not Available”. This happening of course shortly after it was available to for sale. Beyond the obvious missing product Target’s website was also plagued with connectivity issues. Sadly this is by no means the first issue the sales of SNES classic has had.
Not long ago, Nintendo Promised that there would be producing “significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.” Sadly, it seems as if this supposed increase in production has meant nothing and that once again the item will be very limited.
Of course Nintendo also said that “we have nothing to announce regarding any possible shipments beyond this year.”
That of course meaning the supply will likely run dry rather fast.This is obviously sad news for gamers as the product is very sought after. I suppose all that is left to do is hope that Nintendo does in fact have more shipments to appease the immense demand of fans for these amazing older titles. But of course there is a small glimpse of hope, the holiday season is on its way. With that Nintendo may be holding on to a large amount to sell to all the parents who want to share these amazing classic titles with their children..Because that’s totally why they are getting it, not as an excuse to play them themselves.
In any case, all there is to do now is sit back and hope you can find one.
