Why Did Nintendo Just Kill One of Its Coolest Products in Years?

Remember guys, when you have a really cool product that everyone loves and that sells out immediately, the first order of business is to kill that fucker and put it in the ground before people get too attached.

Playing Tetris on a Business Card Is Everything I Hoped It Would Be
