Look, it’s just a fact of life that sometimes if you want something popular, you’ve got to pay a little extra. This is especially true when it comes to popular new tech toys. The AirPods are one good example — they’re impossible to find in Apple stores but you can score a pair right now on Craigslist if you’re willing to pay a premium. An even better example, however, is the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. This little retro gaming console was by far the hottest tech gift of the holiday season, and it’s still beyond difficult to find in stores. If you’re willing to pay a little extra though, you can score a brand new NES Classic Edition on Amazon right now.

Some highlights from the product page:

  • The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition has the original look and feel, only smaller, sleeker, and pre-loaded with 30 games
  • The pre-installed games include: Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, PAC-MAN, Dr. Mario, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, and dozens more
  • Includes a standard HDMI cable
  • Comes with one old-school, grey-colored NES Classic Controller and an AC adapter
  • Also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. Additional NES Classic Controllers will be sold separately

As is always the case, you should be sure to check a seller’s ratings before placing your order. That said, there are plenty of very highly ranked sellers with NES Classic Edition inventory right now.
