The only thing I can think is that they maybe they want to devote more resources to making Switches? Otherwise I don't get it.


Or when the release an SNES Classic and double the price of NES Classic, people still go crazy buying it because they know that Nintendo means it when they say limited release.


But even then...is there concern a SNES Classic wouldn't be insanely popular without the artificial shortage?

Nope...I'm just trying to search for any sort of logic in a situation where its hard to find.

Well that's what they say, but you don't generally stop selling a super popular item.

Nintendo sold over 906,000 Switch units in the United States alone last month, making it, as they bragged in a press release tonight, the fastest-selling video game system in the company’s long history.


For comparison, the Wii U sold 890,000 units in the United States during its first six weeks on the market. That was during the holiday season, of course—the Wii U came out in November of 2012—which makes the Switch’s numbers look even more impressive.

Nintendo added that they’ve sold 1.3 million copies of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the U.S.—925,000 on Nintendo Switch and 460,000 on Wii U—and you may notice that they’ve sold more copies of the Switch game than Switches themselves for an attach rate of over 100%, which is certainly one hell of a number.

Wow, Square Enix is gonna sell off IO Interactive. The status of the Hitman franchise, and future updates for the current game, are up in the air.

Finished Horizon: Zero Dawn last night having done pretty much everything you can do. I already miss that game. Now to figure out what to play next.

Also, what are folks' PSN names?
