Apparently, Nintendo has the delivery situation of the SNES Classic Edition well under control. However, the switch represents a challenge.
When the pre-orders of the SNES Classic Edition were launched, the mini-console was sold out by many retailers right now, but as it looks, Nintendo is cranking up the production massively. That is why Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America, said that players should not pay overpriced prices on eBay and Co. They should not put more than the UVP on the table. According to Reggie Fils-Aime, the production was dramatically increased. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that there will not be any big supply bottlenecks.
At the Switch , this could look different, especially for Christmas business. Since the consoles are made up of so many different components, supply bottlenecks could occur at several points in the production chain. Nintendo does not want to have any disappointed customers at Christmas, but Reggie Fils-Aime noted that demand could well exceed the offer. He can not give guarantees.
