Rumors are that they discontinued the NES Classic, because they are working on releasing a SNES Classic this year.
I don't know even if that's true, it still makes no sense to me. This device is so wildly popular they could easily push back the SNES a few months and I don't think it'd hurt sales. Plus, I don't have any stats to back this up but I'm pretty sure a lot of people will want to buy the NES that have no interest in the SNES and vice versa. But all this move is gonna do is make the NES really hard to find. I mean it's already going for about $300 on eBay when it originally just cost 50 bucks.
The whole decision is just stupid and bad Business all around in my opinion.
