Nintendo's NES Classic selling on eBay at a massive premium

12 November 2016 - Nintendo's highly anticipated NES Classic Edition launched on Friday (11/11/16) and immediately sold out everywhere. Even before it launched, it was anticipated that the $60 mini-sized console, which runs 30 classic NES games, would be a hit this holiday season. As with all hot items, scalpers quickly started selling the consoles on eBay and Craigslist with prices going from double to outrageous.

A quick search on eBay shows NES Classic Editions selling for between $65 and a whopping $1,225. The listings for sub-$100 are, of course, moving fast.

After it sold out on Amazon, people have vented their frustration by giving the product a poor review, taking it from 5 starts down to 1.5. They have also taken to social media to voice their frustrations. Nintendo in the meantime has said it will have more shipments soon...
