Amazon says it has "very limited quantities" of the NES Classic Edition, to the point that it's limiting orders to one per customer and disabling the one-click ordering system.

"Demand is expected to be very high, and there's no guarantee that it will remain in stock for long," reads the email that Amazon sent to those who watchlisted the NES. "We will make similar announcements when additional inventory becomes available."
