If you’ve been trying, but haven’t managed to pick up a NES Classic Edition yet, we’ve got some bad news. Nintendo has made it known that the last North American shipments will hit stores in April. In other words, get one if you can, because they are going away. Apparently Nintendo hates money

A representative from Nintendo told IGN:

Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year. We encourage anyone interested in obtaining this system to check with retail outlets regarding availability. We understand that it has been difficult for many consumers to find a system, and for that we apologize. We have paid close attention to consumer feedback, and we greatly appreciate the incredible level of consumer interest and support for this product.

This is indeed sad news, but it sounds like there is still a very, very small window of opportunity if you are hoping to score one for yourself.
