    [FONT=&quot]Nintendo is probably coming out with a mini retro SNES Classic, similar to their impossible-to-find NES Classic. Vic tells us what games he'd like to see on the system in our latest Fan Question of the Day!

    Even though I don't agree with the action, I can kind of get it. But then I would ask why offer it at such a low price, or why release it just a short time before the Switch launch?

    Eh, the price point makes perfect sense, for the target market it was going for. Nintendo just botched its estimate of how big that target market would be. Raising the price would have only made it less attractive to its intended demographic. The problem was that, since Nintendo under-predicted its sales by a *lot*, its intended demographic never actually saw one. Higher price would have done nothing useful, only larger supply.

    As for why this soon before the Switch? I suspect its because "We want a major product for the Christmas season". Nintendo probably knew, upward of a year before, that the Switch would not be ready for Christmas. So, they whipped up the NES Classic as a stopgap that would be cheap and easy to produce, and give them some good publicity and mindshare during the holidays.

    In retrospect? They probably should have manufactured something more like 6 million of them, rather than the 2 million or so they made.

    Without the NES Classic Nintendo wouldn't have had anything with decent buzz for Christmas. Yeah Pokemon was selling and the 3DS was selling, but Nintendo wanted something that would stir up attention. The NES Classic was rare and generated a lot of buzz. I'd say it was mission accomplished.

    I went and got it yesterday. It wasn't expecting the same hype as the first time, but I was still relieved when I was able to get it.
