NES Classic Edition Has Sold Over 1.5 Million Units World Wide as Production Increases

The NES Classic Edition has been a fairly hot commodity since it released back in November, as it’s nearly impossible to find them on store shelves. If they do appear, chances are they are gone that exact same day. Online ordering is virtually impossible (unless you want to buy second hand off of Ebay). Clearly, Nintendo has massively mismanaged sales expectations for the system itself. Still, how successful is it?

It turns out that Nintendo is reporting, according Wall Street Journal writer Takashi Mochizuki, that it has sold over 1.5 million Nintendo Classic Editions world wide (includes all versions). He also reiterates that they are increasing production of the unit currently to meet demand. Are you impressed by these sales figures?
