Weâ€™re wondering what year it is at the following link.
This might sound like a repeat of last weekâ€™s show post, but where last week was speculation, this week is proof.
People LOVE their nostalgia (member berries if youâ€™ve been watching South Park this season).
The NES Classic (the tiny one with 30 games) sold out fast. This isnâ€™t uncommon with Nintendo products, but something like this just feels strange to say in the year 2016. How? Why? Seriously, anyone who wants one of these things and has a reason as to why please call our show or email us. Iâ€™m exceptionally curious. I mean, I even want one, but I really canâ€™t say why. I have no idea. And the want for this thing became even stronger – get this – when I couldnâ€™t find one to buy on release day. Thereâ€™s a medical term for that, Iâ€™m sure.
I have a feeling Nintendo know what they are doing here and I also have a feeling they will cash in on this every year if they can. Either with add-ons to existing products or a SNES Mini and the like. They struck gold again. No sense in leaving the claim untapped.
