SNES Classic Mini pre-orders available now at website that offers international shipping
I hate that I have hunt down a preorder before it's even available, like wtf Nintendo? Do they not like making money. I never managed to get a mini nes either...these things would sell if Nintendo made more...
I wish Nintendo would just make a ton of them, but they probably won't
I agree. Once different retailers announced the pre orders, they were "unavailable or sold out!" Seriously, WTF! Just looked again, no worries, people are already selling their pre orders for double the price! Just effing awesome......
At this point is scalpers more than fans looking for this thing. They saw that the mini nes was worth money so they are going to buy up well the stock of this one as well. .
So the people who actually want them, probably won't get one
Even less do this time around.
Yeah. Honestly I've lost interest. The last time was a crap show. This is looking the same. About 1 month and a half out and nothing solid yet? I hope they learned from last time :(
Still haven't seen preorders open up in Canada
yup, still waiting
Retailers here saying expect it around last week of August.
Meh! I'll stick to my Snes9x on my android TV. Got about 300 games on my TV. 👌
Nintendo is really condoning piracy with the small amounts of these retro system that are produced .
when you want to sell something officially you have to pay license fees..
I got launchbox going. I am up to around 5,000 retro console and arcade games. 🙈
How does that perform with HDMI on a smartTV? Is the resolution improved?
@AuditorGamer I got the Samsung KS8000 which has 22.7 ms lag at 4k. I haven't noticed any issues, and am able to play the street fighter games, megaman games with no issues. Just played through the original gradius...it looks a lot better when you enable extra sprites in the NES emulator. Resolution is awesome on my 4k tv, I turn off all the filters, effects, and scanlines so I can see the crisp pixel art. It's awesome!
Still no pre-orders in the US.
No need to hurry when you can emulate the sh*t out of these games.
Got my original Super Nes with all my favorite games. I recently bought an emulator for my pc that has damn near every Nes SNes Genesis 32X Master System TBGrafx16 N64 handhelds ever made for $40. Has thousands of games on it, $80 for the mini for 21 games isn't a good value to me, but they should sell all of them as I am sure they will be in big demand.
You bought an emulator? Lol they are free.
I realize they are free, but I was not looking for them, have the time, or looking for the roms, or chd files, so I gladly paid for the thousands of games for the systems and also has all the Capcom arcade, Neo Geo, Mame games. Well worth it to me. Thanks for the response...
When you see those thumbdrives and stuff for sale on ebay, you always wonder: who would fall for this scam? Guess we know. No hate to the guy who paid the $40. It just sounds like some jackass ripped you off.
I lost interest. Last year I went everywhere looking for an NES mini huge turnoff Nintendo.
Already got my pi waiting on the Starfox rip.
No thanks. Mass produce these and sell them at the right price and I'll buy it, but no way in hell am I supporting this artificial scarcity crap
Shank First of all my friends love lamb shank And couldn't agree more it's truly sad how Nintendo to this day pays with its fanbase When Ms and sony can mass produce why can't Nintendo These consoles aren't for fans it's for those trying to rip people off on eBay
I had thought about getting this, but I'm just going to pass. It's obvious that Nintendo is doing this intentionally at this point. I'll just get a RetroPi, better value anyway.
In the 90s words of Shang Tsung, "and now for a taste of things to come."
I managed to pre-order one from Toys R Us when they first became available, got an e-mail a few days ago saying that the dispatch would be delayed for 2 - 3 weeks :( Still they're giving me a £20 voucher code, which is nice.
What a turnoff in the title the "but hurry " is. Sounds like it will be planned shortages like last time from those loonies at Nintendo.
Scalpers ruin everything. It's annoying I really wish they picked the original US SNES. I don't actually find this one that appealing and would rather just keep using my Pi instead
Individuals who buy from scalpers ruin everything.
somehow blaming the person who buys from the scalper is quite the stretch of appointing blame. but whatever
Why not just release the entire library, make a ton of consoles and rake in the cash? I'm sick of this 'limited supply' b.s. There's almost no point in looking when most people will be selling them for double-triple the price.
