    A couple of days ago, Nintendo has opened pre-orders for its refresh of the fan favourite SNES: the SNES Classic Edition.

    Well apparently, if you are in the US, and waited to purchase one yourself, chances are you are cursing the company at this time of writing. It's been reported that these highly sought for consoles were sold out as soon as they became online, with even Walmart getting sold out in just 2 minutes. In just a short while, these consoles disappeared like bubbles and everybody noticed.

    It's quite staggering thinking about it, however this shows a huge imbalance between supply and demand. And while this may very well be a successful strategy put out by Nintendo - to surely get wide publicity and ensure demand - this becomes a pain for customers who wait tirelessly at night so they could snag one, and yet still end up with nothing.

    Does anyone think this is an abuse these companies have? Is this Nintendo's fault for supplying less, or the customers' fault for expecting too much for a limited release?
