Nintendo President Appeases Fans Over Possible SNES Classic Shortage

"You shouldn't [have to] pay more than $79.99", said Fils-Aimé.

Despite feeling like "the demand is there and the supply chain is there", Fils-Aime is concerned that the demand is still growing and might be unmanageable in time for the holiday period.

What sticks out the most is that, "Fils-Aimé said Nintendo said the company was not holding back stock on goal to create an artificial scarcity situation".

Speaking of the upcoming Retro console, Nintendo has revealed that SNES Classic is a form of a virtual console.

According to Reggie Fils-Aime in an interview with Financial Times (via GameSpot), Nintendo "dramatically increased" production for SNES Classic stock.

With the demand of the NES Classic resulting in supply issues, many fans were left anxious that a similar issue will arise when with the release of the forthcoming SNES Mini.

So, maybe you should hold off on the SNES Classic bidding wars and see how this works out. After all, judging from how fast its predecessor, the NES Classic, came and went, the same was bound to happen to this 21-game compilation console.

Sadly it appears Switch-seeking Nintendo fans are likely to experience disappointment this time around.

And yet. Many of us were burned by Nintendo promises previous year.

The unexpectedly high demand and "multiple choke points" in the supply chain have led to a dismayed fanbase, most notably in Japan. And there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply. But Nintendo officials say there's still a good chance to get what's expected to be one of the holiday season's hottest gifts.

Will you be dashing to grab a SNES classic or a Switch this year?

If there is one problem which companies are probably okay with having is that the public wants their product too much.
