Retro gaming fans, we have good news and bad news. The bad news is you’ll never find the NES Classic Edition in stock in stores like Best Buy, GameStop, or Target ever again. That’s right, as you know all to well at this point, Nintendo has discontinued its white-hot mini NES console as it focuses on things like the Nintendo Switch and its various portable consoles. The good news, however, is that it’s not to late to grab an NES Classic Edition console before they vanish forever. There are tons of sellers on Amazon who still have them in stock and ready to ship, and prices actually aren’t as obscene as you might think. Just remember not to ever — EVER — buy one from a seller labeled “just launched.” Instead, only buy from shops with a bunch of good feedback.

Here are a few key details 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
