Gamers have been cribbing about the abrupt discontinuation of NES Classic, which was launched last year. Nintendo has promised that they would not repeat their mistake this time.

Here's all about it.

The NES Classic fiasco

After the discontinuation of NES Classic, the gaming community accused that the firm was creating an intentional scarcity as part of their marketing ploy to gain more attention.

Nintendo said that the NES Classic had to be discontinued because the firm had limited resources, but this time they would produce more units of Super NES Classic Edition so that, there is no deficit.

And Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out!! and Yoshi's Island.

Whew! Now, I am done.

However, there are two hiccups. First, the firm hasn't said by "more units" they exactly mean how many and more importantly, if they would continue making SNES Classic beyond the end of 2017.

This console is going to cost $79 in the US, and £79.99 in the UK. Indian price and availability are not yet known. Sega has also promised to re-release its arsenal of old classics game online.

These games will contain advertisements, which one can stop by paying a one-off $1.99 fee.
