Amazon Sell Out of Nintendo Classic Mini Ahead of Launch

Announced earlier this year, the Nintendo Classic Mini (a micro-HD version of the NES) has already sold out according to Amazon UK. In a statement on the product page, they’re warning customers…

Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. You will be notified via email of the expected delivery date closer to the time. We will be fulfilling customer orders in the order in which they were placed, and expect to fill all pre-orders by mid-December 2016.

This isn’t that surprising, as the budget system provides 30 classic games from the NES era, it was sure to be popular with hardcore and lapsed Nintendo fans alike. And providing limited quantities of new products at launch has been Nintendo’s key to generating media buzz for over a decade.

Hopefully you got your orders in early if you were hoping to have this on launch day.
