My local Best Buy had only 33 NES Classics arrive today and the line started last night. No NES Classic for my family this Christmas. I have a feeling my interest will after the holidays and I'll probably never buy it. After December 25th, there's no more hype, I've already over-spent on presents, and there is no more time off for me and my family. Nintendo is blowing a huge opportunity.
I was lucky, in that the Walmart I work at got a shipment literally the minute I got off work. I kinda felt bad for buying it, because there are undoubtedly plenty of people more hyped than I, but then again on the other hand, I'm glad it didn't fall into the hands of someone who resells it for way more money than it's worth. I was actually debating on selling it on Ebay for a really low price (like $5-$10) as an act of good will, but in addition to the fact that I have no idea how to ship things, the people who would take it, and sell it again for $300 would completely ruin the gesture. : /
