Nintendo’s bite-sized NES emulator has been nearly impossible to find in retail stores since its release, despite the company’s promise of providing “a steady flow of additional systems through the holiday shopping season.” Many have criticized Nintendo for doing such a poor job of gauging demand for the system, some even contending that the scarcity may be manufactured to drive demand for the unattainable product.
Best Buy recently announced that it will have restocked the console by December 20, following a leaked email revealing the date.
