    Well that's fine.
    If there's actual demand for this thing then it'll still be made, it just won't be Nintendo that makes it. It'll be whichever Chinese manufacturer has or gets hold of the design.

    I wouldn't mind getting one, but I don't really care either.

    What a colossal missed opportunity for clueless Nintendo. Last I heard hackers have it running SNES, Genesis, and GBA games.

    Two thoughts:

    1. The Nordic retailer did confirm this via their Facebook, so it's legit at least for that region. The distributor didn't confirm that this applies to any other region though.

    2. If it does apply worldwide, the only reason I can think of that Nintendo would do this is to salvage NES VC sales on Switch, especially after hackers have exploited the Classic.

    Dumb move to discontinue such a popular product. I wanted one but not enough to pay 120 from a Scalper. I bought most of the games on it anyway

    Wow, if this is worldwide this is very surprising. I didn't expect it at all. What a disaster it turned out to be, wow..

    Except you don't need the NES Classic to emulate all those games. Like Glacier stated, there's already a Raspberry Pi 3 and those work perfectly fine. They're also about half the price of the NES Classic. I became interested in single board computers last year and I have a Raspberry Pi 3 with Retro Pie that has NES, SNES, GBA, GB, Genesis, Atari, etc games on a 32GB sd card. I have an Odroid XU4 with a 32GB eMMC card that I'm going to emulate N64, PS1 and Dreamcast games on.

    There's clearly a market for a box that only gives you 30 emulators and doesn't allow you add your own but Nintendo doesn't seem to want to capitalize on people who like paying more for less.

    If there isn't a demand for NES VC games but there is a demand for those exact same games on the NES Classic, which would you be better off selling?

    It's also illegal to emulate video games (most at least). A lot of people care about that sort of thing.

    Yeah, but my point was there are multiple options out there for emulation. People don't need an NES Classic in order to do it so Nintendo not producing more for that reason doesn't make sense.

    Nobody really cares, at least the majority. They are 20+ year old games that sold really well already for a system that is now dead.

    That's such a cliche argument to bring up against something that is superior and free. Emulation isn't an enforced thing. Torrenting current gen games is, that's where the cares are at.

    Believe it or not, some people don't want to break the law, even if they know they won't get caught.

    In Indiana the state law says you can't catch fish with your bare hands but that wouldn't stop anyone nor would anyone care.

    That's not a good comparison, though. Indiana lawmakers, themselves, don't care about that. They just don't want to waste their time changing old laws that don't matter. On the other hand, Nintendo does still care.

    For the love of whatever you care about please don't detail this thread into pointless drivle about emulator morality.

    In any case, they probably see the demand going down. That or the conspiracy theory that Nintendo had a bunch of chips left over from something was true and those chips are now gone, and they don't care to make anymore.

    Nintendo doesn't care enough to go around shutting down ROM sites that have DIRECT DOWNLOAD. They are more concerned about newer games and fan projects

    If they would have manufactured enough, it probably would have outsold the Switch. That's probably too embarrassing for them to support.

    But with NES classic you already have games. With Switch you're waiting for them!

    Unless you're a cartridge purist. Then you do what I do and get a RetroUSB AVS.

    Everyone is a little different in that regard. Personally I'm a big believer in services that are convenient, affordable and easy to access.
    I have a Netflix account now that they are in multiple regions so I no longer torrent TV shows that I have no access to over here.
    Itunes back in the day made it easy for me to purchase music that I wanted instantly so I didn't need to find music to rip.

    I have a DS flashcard for my 3DS with DS roms on it almost solely because to my utter surprise the Eshop doesn't have a DS shop to buy DS roms.
    Convenient services nullify the desire for piracy in many cases but in many other companies stick to decrying pirates as the reson they need to be stricter and more heavy handed with their policies.

    I'd love a magical $60 Wii u for Xenoblade X actually

    But I won't play an inferior version of botw with no portable function and strip my switch experience from the most flagship game the system has so far
