Many will remember the absolute scenes after the NES Classic Mini instantly sold out last year. Scalpers were successfully listing NES Classic Minis for in excess of $300 as they continued to sell out instantly towards Christmas.
Well, the SNES Classic Mini is a completely different story. People are still trying to extort purchasers for more than triple the RRP of the SNES Classic Mini, but there’s much more stock (or less interest) this time around in stores around Australia, leaving scalpers with items that they potentially only purchased in order to make a quick buck,
I called both Target CBD and JB Hi-Fi Melbourne Central who both told us that they received a significant amount of stock before Saturday and still have stock left today. The same can be said for many stores around Australia who are definitely noticing a difference to last year’s NES Classic Mini. I’ve heard that a second shipment is already on the way too, so stock shortages are not likely to happen any time soon.
