Reggie Says Don’t Pay Scalpers For SNES Mini As There Will Be Enough Stock

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told the Financial Times that consumers shouldn’t worry about being able to get hold of a SNES Mini. Reggie says that supply won’t be an issue when the lucrative retro system launches later this month. He said Nintendo has “dramatically increased” production for SNES Classic stock.

“I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites . . . You shouldn’t [have to] pay more than $79.99,

      1. I already see Metroid: Samus Returns Legacy Edition going for $149.99 to $199.99 on eBay, a markup from £59.99.

        Pre-orders are already sold out on Nintendo UK’s official online store, Game/GameStop, Amazon, etc.


    1. You’re goddamn right about that.
      Let’s see if Nintendo is actually going to fix this inventory issue or if Reggie is just blowing more hot air.

      Nintendo are slow learners but let’s hope you can teach an old dog new tricks. :-)

      1. They’re either slow, stupid or plain evil at times. And then comes Reggie saying stuff like “We know there is a demand blah blah”. ” People who disagree with us doesn’t know how we do things”.

      2. Or as the Splatoon guy said, you might buy their stuff but they make it. If you stop resisting them, you’ll realize just how fun their way is. *rolls eyes*

  1. I’m going to probably hate myself for saying this but, hope Reggie stays true to his words and Nintendo provides more stock of the lucrative console without having to wait hours in the cold. If they do release more stock, I’ll gladly buy one in October along with three other games; Super Mario Odyssey, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in November. Seems like my wallet will be crying by the beginning of the holiday season.


  2. If there’s enough stock, you don’t need to tell people not to buy from scalpers. The presence of scalpers is exclusively dependent on the pricing and available offered at retail. If Nintendo doesn’t both under produce AND undercharge for the rarity involved in underproduction, scalpers won’t exist anyway.


    1. generally speaking I would agree however as Nintendo has a horrible reputation for not meeting demand this probably was a good move if they plan on making good on the promise

      You poor soul. You must not have seen the countless other times Reggie promised something only to be shown to be a big fat liar some time later. *hugs* Trust me. You might need that hug one day if he’s lying again.
