Nintendo Announces Discontinuation Of The NES Classic Edition

In disheartening news, the NES Classic Edition has officially been discontinued. Via IGN, a Nintendo representative has informed us that the NES Classic Edition has been discontinued in the North American territories. In fact, Nintendo of America has already sent their last shipments to retailers already, going on sale later this month.

Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.”

Constraints have definitely been an issue, with consumers being dissatisfied blatantly on social media sites, blasting Nintendo for stock issues. The company also said that the NES Classic Edition production line had gone for longer than the company has anticipated, even with the low stock issues. Impressively enough, the console sold more than 1.5 million units worldwide.

Readers, do you think Nintendo will produce a SNES Classic Edition?
