NES Classic Edition

It’s basically impossible to find a NES Classic Edition for $60 right now, unless you or someone you’ve recently bribed works in inventory management at Target. Walmart, Best Buy and anyone else you’d think of as selling the games console are out of stock online, and the limited stock that trickles into physical retails stores is being gobbled up before they even make it to the shelves.

But at the eleventh hour before Christmas, one highly unlikely retailer might save your day/holiday gifting plans: Urban Outfitters.

The store known for selling painfully hipster record players and “ironic” Polaroids will have a limited-stock, online-only sale of the NES Classic Edition starting tomorrow morning. We don’t yet have a precise time, but Urban Outfitters told BGR it will be sometime Tuesday AM.

If I were a guessing man, I’d say the likeliest times would be 12:01AM, and something like 7, 8 or 9AM in the morning, just as physical stores open/the IT guy clicks “go” in an office somewhere.

Nintendo moved 196,000 units between the console’s launch on November 11 and the end of the month – a number that comes as year-over-year hardware spending dropped 35-percent. Of course, the retro system’s $60 price tag doesn’t leave nearly the same dent as full-fledged next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both of which saw a decline.

Just because Nintendo revived the NES Classic doesn't mean you'll have the luxury of buying a retro console whenever you'd like. In a chat with the Hollywood Reporter, the company's Reggie Fils-Aime warned that the NES Classic and SNES Classic will sell in the Americas through the holidays, but will be "gone" once they sell out.

They're easy to find now. Best Buy here has at least 20 of them on the shelf.
