Damn, where are all the people who were hating on Nintendo for discontinuing the NES classic, and claimed (as always) artificial shortages etc?
Really makes you wonder.
The fact that Nintendo have just now decided to announce another run doesn't erase the fact that people had to pay an arm and a leg from scalpers if they wanted one due to Nintendo's awful handling the first time around. The availability backlash could have been avoided had they simply said "we can see how popular this product is, and we didn't predict how fast it would sell out, those who want one for retail price should hold out for a possible future reprint" or something along those lines.
I'm shocked as well, but in my case it's too late. I got tired of not being able to get one and built a retropie instead. It's why I shrugged when the SNES classic was announced I didn't care either. I do wish the front end I'm using were more user friendly like these are but it is what it is.
