He also said,"I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on a SNES Classic on any of the auction sites", noting that consumers shouldn't need to pay more than the console's $99 MSRP, even if they go the eBay route.

"There is not one choke point, there are multiple choke points", said Fils-Aime regarding the rumor that a company called Alps Electric can't generate enough parts needed to manufacture Joy-Con controllers. "It depends on our ability to make more", Mr Fils-Aimé said on stage at the Variety event.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES mini for short, won't run into the same sorts of supply shortages that befell its NES mini predecessor, according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

Nintendo's upcoming Super NES Classic Edition - an $80 re-release of the original Super Nintendo, but with 21 built-in games - is going to be impossible to find when it launches on September 29.

Two weeks ago, Nintendo announced that with the holiday period just around the corner, it would be stepping up production of its Switch in order to try and meet demand. In July, an online retailer put "thousands" of NES Classic consoles up for sale, all of them bundled into high-priced packages that included other assorted swag. And there is a potential that demand is going to outstrip supply. Can we do more? Buying it second hand will only get more expensive the closer we get to Christmas, especially if it becomes obvious that supply will not be able to keep up with the demand.

Will you be dashing to grab a SNES classic or a Switch this year? Do you need a Switch in time for this holiday season?
