The NES Classic has been hard to find these days, selling out its first stock within minutes since its release last month. Nintendo promised it would restock the hot item so people wouldn’t have to spend upwards on $200 on eBay listings. The little console of 30 classic NES games has been consistently sold out at traditional retailers, through Urban Outfitter’s social media, and Thinkgeek had to offer a lottery system to make sure people were able to snag one fairly.
Amazon announced today that it has the NES Classic in stock, but only if you have Amazon Prime and live in specific cities that offer the Prime Now service. The cities it is available in are Atlanta, D.C., Richmond, Baltimore, Raleigh, Nashville, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and Virginia Beach.
