You are not in the minority. 16bit consoles are among the most fiercely collected, and the SNES is considered by many to be one of the best consoles ever made.

Nintendo is just dumb. They should have a mini version of every console they can manage to make. Nostalgia for Nintendo, especially classic Nintendo, is always bananas and people will pay hand over fist with the money Nintendo doesn't want.

Discontinuing it early gives them a very low risk prospect, where they sell every unit made.

"last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year"

Sounds to me like Nintendo is banking on the fact that people will go insane the next time they come out.

Once again, Nintendo spits in the faces of their fans.

It's things like this I remember when I think about spending money on games.

If they are going to discontinue this legit way to play those great old games... we, in turn, will do whatever we need to do to play those old games.

More reason to stop giving Nintendo money.

As with many, I don't have a NES classic or two simply because Nintendo has been completely incapable of supplying them, I sure as Hell won't buy into the scalping scene. Just another shining bright highlight of Nintendo's complete disconnect with their customers and the ecosystem at large.

There still is always the good old 3D Printer to make a NES case for a Pi, toss on an 8BitDo controller and you are set.
