Sorry, gamers, Nintendo doesn’t care at all about your feelings. The company knows exactly how badly you wish you had an NES Classic Edition, but it discontinued the retro system anyway. So now, you have two options. You can order a third-party Hyperkin RetroN 1 HD Gaming Console for just $39.99 on Amazon, which can play any old NES game cartridges you can get your hands on. Your second option is to get the real NES Classic Edition, which is still available from tons of sellers on Amazon. You’ll have to pay a premium, and you’ll also have to be sure that you only purchase from sellers that have good ratings like this one, but you’ll get your hands on that precious NES Classic Edition before you know it.

Here are some 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
