There can be no doubt that the NES Mini situation is a bit of a fiasco with fans still unable to find a unit on store shelves and online retailers being drip fed stock. CNET recently sat down with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to discuss stock concerns. Reggie admitted that the level of demand for the system is far greater than they originally anticipated and they’re struggling to keep up with the feverish demand.
“Every day there’s more going into the retail channel. The overall level of demand is certainly greater than we anticipated, that’s why we’re suffering through the shortages out there in the marketplace.”
