NES Classic Prices Top $200 on eBay

NES Classic Prices Top $200 on eBay - News

It was revealed yesterday that Nintendo has discontinued the NES Classic worldwide. This is less than six months after the console launched in November 2016. 

Prices for the NES Classic on eBay are now going for more than $200 each. That is more than three times the MSRP of $60 / £50.


The price of the console soaring on eBay is not a surprise. With it being discontinued it will only become harder to find with time and with scalpers looking to make money.

This is because of Nintendo's idiotic decision. -_-

They'll die down eventually, but unfortunately I don't think they'll ever drop below $100 as Nintendo never supplied us with enough. Guess I won't be getting one after all :(

It was suppose to be $59.00 for the console and $9.99 for controllers but Nintendo didn't allow that to happen due to constraints.

Best Buy stores will be getting more in stock, so if you're wanting to get one and not pay a fortune (which I'd never buy a NES Classic for the eBay price) check Best Buy locations.

Ordered one day too late. Serves me right for waiting until April.
