With Nintendo announcing they are discontinuing the NES Classic Edition, many are left furious for several reasons. One of these is that many feel like the people who have won the most in all of this is not Nintendo, but scalpers. This story sure helps the argument.
According to eBay sales data, 2 NES Classic Edition units were sold each minute with an average sale price of $332. For comparison, the units had an MSRP of $59.99 with the average unit on launch day selling for $230 on eBay.
