Nintendo came with the clever idea to start selling the NES (mini) Classis Edition and managed to sell through 1.5 million units worldwide. Eager gamers tried to get one for under the Christmas tree, but many failed to find one left on the shelves. It was so popular the system sold out worldwide in a very short timespan. Some criticised Nintendo for artificially created stock shortage. The same trick they’re accused of now with the popular Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo promised to do better and now they’ve released the SNES (mini) Classic Edition. It seems you can make good money in minituarizing old consoles.
