With a few days left before Christmas, gamers are still wanting to buy the elusive Nintendo NES Classic Mini. Luckily, there is good news on the internet stating that two retailers are going to restock the console this week.
The first retailer that announced it is restocking the console this week is GameStop. Reports stated that the NES Classic Mini is going to be available in its stores on Thursday and Friday. However, it was as well announced that there will only be limited stocks. So, for gamers who want to purchase the console, be sure to drop by early in any GameStop store near your place.
Consumers should also watch out for Best Buy as it will also restock the console this week. According to reports, the retailer will sell the game console on December 20. But, similar to GameStop, stocks will be limited, so be sure be in its stores early.
Each Nintendo NES Classic Mini costs $60. But, if you are planning to buy it on eBay, prepare to spend at least six times higher than its original price. Since the demand is too high for this console, it is somehow expected that those who managed to purchase it will sell the gadget for a much higher price.
Meanwhile, for those who want to pre-order the gaming console, it seems like it would not be available online. Most retailers are offering the gadget on their stores, not on their websites. So, it is safe to say that you have no other option but to go to their stores early on the day of restocking.
This move of Nintendo to bring back the classic console is intended to bring back childhood memories. Gamers will again be able to play games like Donkey Kong, Doctor Mario and Final Fantasy. The company has already sold an estimated 200,000 units since it was re-launched in November. It is a clear indication that gamers still want the classic console as much as they did in the 80s.
