The multinational Japanese company Nintendo managed to make such an amazing and popular product that the NES Classic Mini is sold out around the world. This performance was achieved since NES Classic Mini’s release last November until now. The entertainment system is so popular that on eBay fans would even pay four times the price.
The console has been discontinued since April 2017 and in May it was already impossible to find it in British stores. Within minutes the product was sold out of every retail store in the U.K.
