This past November, Nintendo released the NES Classic which is a remake of Nintendo’s first console released in the United States.
The System came with 30 preinstalled classic Nintendo games from the mid 80’s to the early 90’s, like Super Mario Bros 1, 2, and 3, The Legend of Zelda, Punchout, and 27 lesser known hits. Bringing the console into the 21st, century, Nintendo added an HDMI input to allow gamers to bring old time games to the modern century.
This remake sold like hot cakes, if you got your hands on one of these, you’d be considered one of the luckiest guys or gals on the face of the planet. Only Nintendo New York, located in Rockefeller Center, had a regular inventory replenishment of the highly sought after product to satisfy their mushroom hungry customers, until today.
Best Buy has announced that the NES Classic Edition will be available at its stores (not online) at start of business today, Monday morning. Some locations will be doing a ticketing process before doors open.

After this, the Nintendo NES is officially discontinued, meaning you will never see it released by Nintendo again. Only on eBay can you find scalpers selling the NES Classic for twice its original price. If you don’t want to spend the moolah, maybe you can come across one at a garage sale or find a dude selling one in a dark back alley?
Nintendo really knows how to massage nostalgia’s ballsack. Oh, baby, you want classic games to your updated way of living? Oooh yeah, that’s the spot!
I screwed up last time not waiting for the NES Classic. However, I can’t wait to blink away the crust from my eye ducts, wake up at 4 a.m, pick up my SNES and ignore my family.
See ya in line!
