Another chance to get the NES Classic Edition has arrived thanks to GameStop, which confirmed it will be selling units of one of the hottest devices of the year on Dec. 15 and Dec 16. However, there is likely a small amount to give away, and interested buyers are advised to act quickly.

According to a press release from the retailer, “limited quantities” of the unit are on sale at both physical stores, as well as its online shop. GameStop suggested that consumers call the stores ahead of actually going there, however, just in case stocks run out quickly. Because brand new units are being sold, this is probably one of the last chances individuals can buy the NES Classic Edition at retail price -- US$60 (AU$80) -- before the holidays officially hit.

The NES Classic Edition is a remake of the 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System, which some critics argue revolutionized console gaming for its generation. The miniature version is preinstalled with 30 of the most popular retro games that easily come to memory. This includes “Final Fantasy,” “The Legend Of Zelda,” “Castlevania,” “Bubble Bobble” and “Donkey Kong.”

The only real drawback from the console is that it is limited to the games that are preinstalled, as it has no connection that would allow the addition or deletion of titles. This, however, is evidently not enough to keep the adoring public away. Most retailers instantly sell out of the unit when it hits physical and virtual shelves.

Some retailers have even gotten creative with their distrubition of the NES Classic Edition. ThinkGeek, who announced stocks of the console earlier this week, is selling the units on a random basis. Account holders simply need to add the item into their cart and hope that ThinkGeek provides them with a code to redeem the same. However, GameStop has taken a more standard approach with its latest shipment.
