Watch this: Nintendo Classic Edition, hands-on: the Mini NES we always wanted
Nintendo's cute mini NES -- aka the
NES Classic Edition
-- is really hard to find for its MSRP of $60. The tiny
Entertainment System is currently sold out in most games retailers, but you can still snag one... if you're willing to pay more.
Here are your best bets, for now:
The mini NES is available in-store at some GameStops. Call your local store to see if they have any in stock, since they go so quickly. Also, they are only allowing one unit per customer. It still isn't available on the store's website, though.
Newegg has the Classic for around $200 and $11 shipping.
Chunk Toys has consoles in stock, but for $250. The price seems to fluctuate around $10 to $100 every so often, so you may want to keep an eye on this one. Also, it appears they offer free shipping.
Player's Choice has the original NES Classic Edition priced at around $180, plus around $5 for shipping.
The NES Classic Edition can be found on eBay if you can't find it anywhere else. Be warned, though: As on Amazon -- and just about everywhere else -- people are charging way above the original price of $60.
If calling your local stores over and over again just isn't your thing, there are a few inventory trackers out there you can use. These trackers, like BrickSeek and NowInStock, let you see which brick-and-mortar stores are getting the NES in stock. You can also sign up for email, text or browser alerts so -- hopefully -- you won't miss the next restock. The sites may or may not be 100 percent accurate, so you may want to use a few different sites to find your Classic.
