...Today, his shop sells Nintendo consoles.

Nintendo cartridge prices range from $1.99 per game to a wallet-busting $800 for the rarest ones.

The most popular titles are classic serials like Super Mario Bros., Zelda and Pokemon.

That is great news!

Sadly in my area, the last time I checked the local video game shops, each had about 30 original Nintendo consoles. People here are just not buying.

Super Nintendo systems seem to sell well!

In my area the NES has never sold well. The area in question being Europe.

It didn't surprise me in the least to read that the business in question is located in the USA.

Yep, that's a US business and that is why they are selling out on Nintendo stuff.  Good for the them, though.  I'm sure the owner of the business would be unhappy if his stock was just sitting there!

Interesting article and I agree with plenty of it, even if it is a bit too US-centric.
