Good luck finding an already sold-out NES Classic this holiday season
The NES Classic went on sale today, and Nintendo's latest iteration of its older console is shaping up to be another holiday hit. The diminutive retro console appears to have sold out in minutes this morning, and availability at almost every online retailer is incredibly scarce. But like any product high in demand and low in supply, where there's a will, there's tons of people looking to make a quick buck by flipping things on secondary marketplaces. So it's by no means surprising to see things like third-party Amazon sellers flogging the $59.99 NES Classic for $398 (at the time of publication), or for eBay prices for the throwback console to end up in the $200–$300 range — far eclipsing the price of an actual working vintage NES.
