The reason behind Nintendo’s decision is unclear. It could be because of supply issues, high-production cost or they simply want the division in-charge of the NES to focus on making Switch more irresistable.
Since the news of the discontinuation, reports have emerged that consumers are paying more to get themselves a NES. According to Polygon, some consumers are paying almost six times more just to get the plug-and-play system before it’s gone.
So what do you think of Nintendo’s move? Are they nuts or are they coming up with something better?
