Discontinuation of the NES Classic edition


Nintendo announced that the NES classic edition will be discontinued .


A Nintendo representative said this to IGN,  “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.”


Another representative from Nintendo told IGN that, “NES Classic Edition wasn’t intended to be an ongoing, long-term product. However, due to high demand, we did add extra shipments to our original plans.” Nintendo doesn’t have any plans to start shipping the NES classic in North America again but they didn’t say anything about it being discontinued world wide. Nintendo said production of 3rd party accessories would we up to the company that makes it.


Do u think after the NES classic edition sold 1.5 million  at Nintendos 3rd quarter it was a bad idea for Nintendo to discontinue the NES classic edition ? Tell us on our Facebook page or on the comment section.
