Description: The article is related to 749 walmart snes classic. The writer primarily tells you that the SNES Classic of Nintendo will not only be in plentiful supply but also come back in the summer of 2018. The company will take some measures to repress the scalpers.
Welcome back to another episode of game talk radio. We got some exciting news today. This popped up about three hours ago. Let me bring up the article here. Yesterday Reggie said, the scalper stock has increased for the Super Nintendo classic, he talked to the Financial Times. He said that I would urge you not to bid on NES classic on any auction site, you shouldn’t have to pay more than seventy $9.99.
So that was interesting. All of a sudden, he came out and said that don’t pay the scalpers. We know that the classic is going to have more stocks than the NES classic. I don’t trust that until I see them in stores. They’re going to make you believe them.
Nintendo released an official press saying that Nintendo is working to sought after classic consoles. The classic was scheduled at the end of 2017. They will continue into 2018 due to incredible demand. More Super Nintendo classics will be launched on September 29th.
Then all NES classic shipments were combined last year. So they will launch more for the Super Nintendo for the NES classic. Nintendo announces that the NES classic is coming back, they’re putting it back into production in the summer of 2018. That’s awesome.
So someone who missed the NES classic will be able to get one. My only concern is that there were a lot of rumors about the N64 Classic coming out next year. There weren’t any solid information about that, but they had shown a little icon to make you think that it might be possible.
So you have to think of that they will do the NES classic restock next year. Are they going to hold off on the N64 one? Are they going to release that later in the year? Are they going to have the NES classic restock in the summer? Then the spring will still be all the Super Nintendo classic restocks. I don’t know, that’s strange. That is not a big deal. I think, it’s cool.
The NES classic wall has a lot of shortcomings such as the short cords and the limited game. So you can’t buy more. It is still a neat device and it is something that a lot of people want. It is funny, it means more for the fans. So it is unfortunate to make it limited like that. The only person who you hurt is the fan who wants to support you. That throws a lot of hardcore fans like me. I eyeball him, because I love the fact that it’s an official Nintendo merchandise.
It was cool, it was an emulation device, but it comes with a Nintendo seal. That’s cool to me. The packaging is reminiscent, it has the original Nintendo packaging. There were a lot of cool things. It is a good piece to me. That’s why I want to have one. It’s been fun buying, selling and watching something that you owned, it is worth a lot of money.
It’s better that everybody gets one. So I want to say congratulations. They could have been staunch in their stance, we’re not going to do any more. We did it, it was a limited run. But they’re listening to their fans saying that there was a lot of demand for this, we dropped the ball, we can fix it by throwing it back into demand.
When they do twofold by this, there will be more NES classics next year. They destroyed the scalpers market for the Super Nintendo classic, because they’re telling people that we can remake these. If the classic is sold out, if people are trying to triple and quadruple the value on eBay, nobody should buy those. Nintendo will flip the switch back on.
That’s what they’re proving by bringing the ante classic back. Maybe the packaging is a little different, but wouldn’t it be cool to see the NES classic edition coming out with a different style box? Here’s the smart thing to make me buy another one. So it makes the people who own one to buy another one. This will be crazy.
What do they put that on? There’s not origin, whatever you want to call it. So what are they with that? You have to buy another one again. So there are some things that they can do, since it’s coming next summer.
That makes me think that they have something planned, because they’re putting what they have back into production, that shouldn’t take that long. But you can argue, maybe they’re doing it for the Super Nintendo classic, they don’t want to take away from that this summer by having two classic conditions for Christmas.
I think, they both sell, I don’t think that there’s any problem there. Maybe they’re picking next summer to redo it, they might be doing some changes in alterations to it. I mean, it’d be cool. I think, these changes are good for them to be able to double dip their customers and get them to buy another one. Now as a customer, I feel bad because of buying another one, but I will buy another one.
So the only interesting thing is what the Reggie talked about. Let’s take a look, you want to get this. So Reggie talked about why the NES classic was limited, he said that it was based on other companies releasing retro systems, they didn’t anticipate it. They are doing well now, that works. He also said that the shortage wasn’t their fault, Nintendo would come out, we do not think that it’d be that popular. So they’re claiming ignorance.
He blamed it on the success of other release systems, which doesn’t make sense to me. You look at those Atari flashbacks and those Sega Genesis consoles by 80 games, those are crappy. They made seven different versions, they got a ton of things. They didn’t sell those things. Nintendo, you are the king of retro, so how did you think that you wouldn’t sell better than the first and second products? It is an officially licensed product. That’s going to run better ten times.
So I don’t like that Reggie blamed the market and said that they made the decision again. That could have been something in Japan. They made that decision because those things did not sell very well in Japan, maybe these retro systems didn’t sell well in Japan, that was a Japanese decision company which begs the question.
Nintendo of America is starting to get more pull with its American crowd. So are they able to say, I understand that this item doesn’t sell in Japan, but it’s huge in America, let’s do something in America. It is notorious for Japan, it is being a Japanese company, maybe now they learn that this Western market is big, we have to play it differently now.
I think, these are some artificial shortages, because Nintendo didn’t believe that they would take off. I think, it is fair. They’re doing limited prints of them, they’re doing exclusive retails, they have done a lot of weird things.
But one of the reasons is the strategy of Nintendo. Amiibo weren’t selling well in Japan. Maybe we’re going to see them, they may turn the corner in the US market. That’s wishful. That’s one interesting thing, they said that the Super Nintendo mini would also be stocked into next year through 2018. Now the NES classic get shipments until April of 2017.
When the NES classic is finished, I don’t think that it is a surprise to anybody. If they keep pushing out throughout the whole year, there will not be a problem to have SKU, NES, Super Nintendo and N64 classic. I don’t think that there will be someone who wants to buy an NES classic.
I want the Super Nintendo classic, but I’m not going to buy it. I don’t see anybody in the world making that decision. It is not like an active choice with the N64 like. The NES instrument is different from the N64. I see that a lot in my store.
People love N64, but they don’t go back to Nintendo, they might dip back into Super Nintendo. If they grow up with N64, they may not have any attachment to that. I don’t have any attachment to the older Atari stuff, because I grew up with playing the NES. So I have a love for NES.
I don’t like to go backwards to the systems, I didn’t have that when it comes to the power of nostalgia. Nintendo understands that they have a lot of money, the real question is the scalper, it is good news. It will come out next year, we’re going to have a bunch of people flooding the market with theirs.
Now the price is going to tank. I’m OK. I have another two, maybe they’ll be worth a thousand bucks in 10 or 20 years, that won’t be true. So now I can put it on the shelf at MSRP. I never buy them with the intention of making money. I collect a lot of things like that, I don’t think that this action makes me a scalper, because I like to buy those things, they might be worth a lot of money in the future. I don’t buy it today to sell it tomorrow like unlimited item.
I try not to do that at my store, but I get a lot of flack for that, I get a lot of kickback on that like the NES classics. But they were scarce, so some people sold for about 250 online, people came into my store and asked how much.
This is a tricky subject. If I offer a price to you to sell for a hundred and fifty bucks, you will be happy. But when I put it on the shelf at 150, everyone will think that I’m a scalper. Everyone thinks that I bought that for 60 bucks, then I would sell it to make a hundred and fifty bucks.
I’m not the bad person in this situation. I paid money for it. I don’t think that the person who sells it to me will be a bad man. We’re all from different households, we all want to buy one. Some people snatch up five, then they keep one and sell the rest for profit, that’s egregious. A lot of people don’t do that, they will buy two, then buy one to keep and buy one to flip. That’s the same thing, but that’s less egregious to me.
Someone tries to pay off the device, it’d be cool. If the price crashed down to normal, I would put it on the shelf at the normal price, someone would walk in my store online, this is cool. But who knows what’s going to happen with the price on these things? I bought one from somebody, I paid a hundred bucks for it. We’ll see how that goes. I can sell it for a hundred while the price drops. We’ll see what happens, but it is a year later. That’s the difference.
The price might not drop before Christmas this year, it might start dropping next year as interest wanes. The Super Nintendo classic might have dropped the price on it. When people feel burned by the NES classic, they may want to get the SNES or they want an NES classic, but they’ll take a SNES and stop fretting about not having NES classic. So either of the ways is awesome. There’s also supposed to be a Nintendo Direct tomorrow.
So I’ll do a content on that for you. I think, this is cool. I’m happy with Nintendo. It makes sense for customer service. They want people to wait for the Sorento. If they are sold out, it’ll a shortage during the Christmas season, because it’ll be a hot item. So it’ll be something that people have to have, it’ll be a little harder to get. But they want to make sure that the people aren’t going to eBay to buy them, because they’re going to push tons of them to the store, that will be great. Thank you.
