Not the console. Just the box.
Since the first shipment sold out and with supply of the second drying up fast, people have been wondering: where the hell can you get the NES Classic in Australia?
One option, as is always the case, is Ebay. But it’s never usually the first port of call, often due to the excessive premium you pay for getting something through an auction house.
But even this might be a step too far. Someone listed the box for the Nintendo Classic Mini on Ebay. Not the console. Just the box.
$100. For a fucking box. And you know what’s even more crazy?
Someone bought it.
Why would you pay $100 for the box when you can just give a retailer the same amount of money for the actual console?
And it’s not just an isolated incident. There’s six bids on this auction. For an empty box.
I don’t understand people.
