The NPD Group has released its report for the month of November, highlighting hardware and software sales data in the United States. The report also included a brief mention of Nintendo’s plug-and-play NES Classic Edition console. According to the NPD Group’s numbers, the stocking stuffer sold 196,000 units for the month.
While that may seem like an impressive number, it easily could have been much higher if it wasn’t constantly understocked at retailers across the country. By comparison, the Nintendo Classic Famicom (the Japanese equivalent of the NES Classic Edition)
sold over 260,000 units in its first four days on the market. Hopefully Nintendo reacts to the huge demand by increasing their supply.
