Limit one per customer, in-store only

It's a month after Christmas, but the NES Classic Edition is back in stock — in U.S. stores —says GameStop.

Of course, that means "while supplies last," and customers are limited to one purchase, so GameStop expects the stock to vaporize as it did over the holidays, perhaps not as quickly though.

The NES Classic Edition, a miniaturized replica of the Nintendo Entertainment System, launched Nov. 11 and was sold out almost instantly. Retailers scrambled to acquire more stock, holiday resupplies were quickly exhausted and Nintendo took a fair amount of criticism for once again coming nowhere close to meeting its customers' demand.

The NES Classic Edition is $59.99 and comes pre-loaded with 30 golden oldie titles and a replica of the original controller. Though Nintendo didn’t include any way to add games to the console, earlier this month hackers found a way to do so using the USB cord that connects to the device’s power supply.
