Who would’ve thought just a few short years ago when everyone was complaining about how awful the Wii U was that Nintendo would now have not one but two of the most highly sought-after video game consoles in the world. The Nintendo Switch was finally released last week and despite a frustrating lack of available games, it’s a pretty awesome console (seriously, we need to wrap this post up ASAP so we can go back to playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild). Aside from the Switch though, the NES Classic Edition console is still one of the hottest gadgets on the planet right now.

Well, we have good news and bad news. The latter is that it’s still impossible to find an NES Classic Edition at MSRP. The former, however, is that Amazon has more than 150 NES Classic Edition consoles in stock right now and while you will have to pay a premium if you want to get your hands on one right away, the premiums aren’t as high as they have been recently.

Here’s what you need to know, 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
