In less than six months since it originally came out, Nintendo is taking the NES Classic Edition off the market.

The miniature version of the original NES console, the tiny plug-and-play device was snapped up by the nostalgic masses in droves when it dropped in November last year.

However, this product isn’t meant to stay, as the last shipments of the console are going out and they won’t be making more. They did make a lot more than they were originally planning to sell due to high demand (1.5 million units sold as of January) but Nintendo never intended to keep it as part of their ongoing line of products.

The NES Classic Controller will be going too, so if you want either of the devices, you better grab them while you still can. No word if this discontinuation is temporary or permanent, but if you really do want the console better be safe than sorry.
