Multiple Supply Choke Points To Blame For Switch Stock Situation, Says Nintendo

SNES Classic Production Has Been 'Dramatically Increased,' Says Nintendo Nintendo Promises More Stock Of SNES Mini
Lori Graves | 12 September, 2017, 00:40

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, in addressing the SNES classic pre-order fiasco, told people that NES stock was not manipulated past year. Not only that but a technical glitch simply led to pre-orders going live before intended.

Stores blew through their stock in minutes, leading many to fear that getting their hands on one of the $80 retro gaming systems would be just as hard as it was to obtain last year's NES Classic Edition. Well, you shouldn't be - at least not if you take Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at his word.

Like the NES Classic before it, the pre-order batch of the SNES Classic is now sold out in most popular retailers, with many listings of the popular throw-back system already available on websites such as eBay.

Reggie Fils-Aimé recently sat down with the Financial Times and this month's ever-popular product, the SNES Classic, was the center of attention.

Nintendo has urged fans, desperate to pick up a SNES Classic Mini, not to pay over the asking price on the secondary market.

He also said,"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on a SNES Classic on any of the auction sites", noting that consumers shouldn't need to pay more than the console's $99 MSRP, even if they go the eBay route.

He did not want to go into specifics about which parts in the supply chain have created problems, and when FT pressed him, he would only say that "there are multiple choke points". But Fils-Aimé says that those issues were "outside our control", implicitly moving the blame to the retailers.

It's easy to cast doubt on the exec's claims, but it's worth noting that he seems less optimistic about meeting the holiday demands for the Nintendo Switch. Can we do more?
