After a scarce supply in 2016, the NES Classic is available again

Meaningful

Video game fans are obviously looking forward to getting an NES Classic console and, luckily, they have several retailers to choose from. In addition to GameStop, electronics retailer Best Buy has announced it is receiving a restock of the plug-and-play consoles this Friday, June 29, but you'll need to act fast if you're hoping to snag one.

Of course, availability is still in limited quantity.

GameStop was first to offer the NES Classic Friday at midnight Eastern, followed by Best Buy and Think Geek. Here's the announcement for you to check.

All other retailers are selling the console for $60. Nintendo's first effort at a stand-alone retro console was enthusiastically received and just about impossible to find after retail bots and scalpers sucked down most of the available inventory and left store shelves barren throughout the entire holiday season of 2016.

The biggest change is the addition of a dedicated home button, something Nintendo still hasn't added, even with the SNES Classic follow-up.

If you've been waiting to get your hands on the hard-to-find Nintendo NES Classic, here's your chance.

Paul George Rumors: Star Could Stay with Thunder on 2
That's where he would sign a one-year contract for the 2018-19 season with a player option for the 2019-20 season. George, whom the Lakers will pursue, still could return to play with the Thunder and New Zealand's Steven Adams.

Let's be honest, though, you're going to want to get two rather than one.

Soon after its launch, the NES Classic Edition was almost impossible to find on store shelves as nostalgic gamers bought units to relive the days of old. Regardless of whether you buy the system in-store or online, consoles will be limited to one per customer.

NES Classic Edition available at #AmazonBooks stores for $59.99 starting June 29. The product page will likely be updated as soon as stock is available. Get 'em before they're gone!

Also compatible with Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro.

These additional features make the Nintendo NES Classic more than just a fun novelty, and in many cases it's the only way to legally play original Nintendo games on your TV without hunting down the original cartridges.
