NES Classic Stock Countdown: Target, Walmart and GameStop

The Nintendo Store in New York already stopped selling the NES Classic. This means the end of the $59.99 NES Classic Edition is near.

There are three days left to find a NES Classic in stock for regular $59.99.

People who still seek a NES Classic can be still hopeful to find a NES Classic in a store. New NES Classic inventory has been spotted this morning at Target and Walmart stores across the Nation.

iStockNow tracks over 230 Target stores and 134 Walmart stores that have the NES Classic in stock. The number of stores has increased compared to yesterday. Shoppers need to cross check the iStockNow alerts with BrickSeek (Walmart), BrickSeek (Target) to increase the likelihood that the information is correct. Checking a flagged store on walmart.com would make sense too, but for some reason Walmart's inventory search does not show the NES inventory.

The demand for the NES Classic is extremely high, topping that for the Nintendo Switch. The competition to line up first at a store and get hands on the few NES Classic in stock is fierce.

The influx of new NES Classic inventory has even pushed down the reseller prices well under $300. Legit offers can be found on amazon.com for around $270. Prices have been already above $300 right after the controversial announcement of discontinuing the NES Classic.

The NES Classic Edition has not been on sale online since weeks. Only Amazon Prime Now offered the NES Classic regularly, but that is coming also to a halt. Yesterday only New York had a very brief availability.
