Nintendo discontinues the NES Classic

Rumors have been circulating that Nintendo has stopped production and cancelled the NES classic. The NES Classic was a smaller version of the original NES that housed numerous classic games and retailed for $60. The device was an instant sell out over last seasons holiday, with most units selling for a markup over the original price.
No reason was given by Nintendo as to why a highly successful game console was cancelled, but I suspect it had something to do with poor sales of the Nintendo switch console that was launched a few months ago.
