GM of Microsoft Studios Publishing, Shanon Loftis is as upset at not being able to get a NES Classic Edition due to stock shortages. Loftis Tweeted that she was “irrationally angry” at not being able to get one.
irrationally angry at not being able to get the NES Classic. Come on, Nintendo. Why would you short-bake these??

As you can tell from the Tweet, there was a lot of built up rage in the exec. On the other hand, Xbox head Phil Spencer was sent a NES Classic Edition by Nintendo before it officially released. Maybe Microsoft exec’s can share or play multiplayer while waiting on more stock.
Nintendo has promised more stock in the run up to Christmas but that has done little to quell the disappointment that some Nintendo fans have felt.
@NintendoAmerica i would if you made more than 2 of them

@NintendoAmerica I’ll ask you- why the hell don’t you have more than 3 units in stock? Your company is ridiculous
