Nintendo "strongly urges" you don't overpay for SNES mini on eBay

However, after several issues involving pre-orders of its upcoming console, many of which were cancelled by retailers, the president is promising a "dramatic" increase in production.

"Certainly the demand is there, and our supply chain is there" Fils-Aime explained, in meeting that milestone, but he did not want to promise that they could meet the demand for the holiday season. Turn that frown upside-down my friend because, if Reggie Fils-Aime is to be believed, the holy house of Nintendo is going to take care of those greedy hoarders. Indeed, pre-orders sold out nearly instantly last month, but Nintendo says it's planning to ramp up production this time rather than ignore the problem.

He says: "I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on SNS Classic on any of the auction sites".

Stores blew through their stock in minutes, leading many to fear that getting their hands on one of the $80 retro gaming systems would be just as hard as it was to obtain last year's NES Classic Edition. Deciding not to guarantee anything, he admits "there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply".

Manuel Velasco said the 8.1 magnitude quake was the strongest on record in state history, topping a magnitude 7.9 quake in 1902. Besides Mexico , EL Salvador , Guatemala , Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras and Panama were on alert for the tidal waves.

While it's nice to hear that Nintendo is doing all they can to manufacture more Switch units, the truth of the matter is that Super Mario Odyssey is coming and some prospective Switch owners are going to be left out in the cold come winter. Can we do more?

Sadly it appears Switch-seeking Nintendo fans are likely to experience disappointment this time around. "But managing that complex supply chain is a challenge".

How do you feel about the SNES Classic Mini's retail situation; are you rushing out to get one on launch day, or waiting until the demand has reduced? He went on to say that people who want one shouldn't be tempted to pay over the odds.
