NES Classic Returned, But Was Only Available For A Limited Time And With A Catch

COMMENTS

Mashable had reached out to ThinkGeek and asked them about the bundles before they went on sale. ThinkGeek said:

We're very excited to have received this last allotment of NES Classic Editions, and we want them to land in the hands of true fans and not resellers. We also need to be able to be profitable on the products we sell.  So, we've limited them to one per customer and packaged them with a number of our best-selling Nintendo-themed products. Fans have reacted very positively to our Nintendo Switch packages, and we believe we will see a similar reaction to these collections.

Mashable then contacted ThinkGeek, hoping to hear their listings were inaccurate. Perhaps they had even more hidden systems in stock. ThinkGeek said:

ThinkGeek's bundle website published at around 3:20 p.m. ET. and I got word from our own team just a few minutes after 4:20 p.m. ET that none of the bundles were available on the website anymore. A quick check-in with ThinkGeek confirmed it: The NES Classic bundles are gone.

Demand for the NES Classic holds, even after it was announced there were no more. Fans can only hope that Nintendo keeps their promise and ships enough of the new SNES Classic Editions to meet consumer demand.
