Today is Nikon's 100th anniversary. Founded on this day in 1917 as Nippon Kogaku K.K., the Nikon Corporation has transformed from a manufacturer of precision optical glass into one of the most iconic photographic brands in the world. Their camera legacy began in 1948 with the Nikon Model I and continues on to this day. And regardless of your opinion of Nikon today, the past 100 years are certainly worth celebrating.
The festivities has been going on all year, with videos, a dedicated website, a series of special edition products, posters paying tribute to the company's most iconic cameras and a lot more, all released this year under the "100th Anniversary" seal.
As you might have heard the sad news by now, Nintendo has decided for some inexplicable reason to discontinue the NES Classic Edition. This means that very soon, you won't be able to get your hands on the console from the shops, and will have to rely on websites like eBay or Craigslist.
However if that is the case, expect to potentially pay some exorbitant prices for them. As spotted by Kotaku Australia, it seems that the NES Classic Edition has been listed quite a few times on eBay where resellers are hiking up the prices by 40% or even higher due to the fact that they know these consoles will soon no longer be available.
