Nintendo gave us the announcement of the SNES Classic Edition a few months ago and we have seen our first official pre-orders go up and sell out in no time.
I got one. I never was able to get a nes classic so I made sure I got one of these
I got one from best buy through the sheer luck of being at my computer at the very moment it hit it was actually only up for less than 15 minutes amazon is sold out too and it was some shady bs from their part. they made a new product page for the console and listed it there in the middle of the night at 4am...completely defeating the purpose of email notifications
Yeah it was some BS that they created a new product page when everyone had registered to be notified on the original page. Do it at a time where everyone has a fair chance of getting one.
Yes...not fuc*ing happy about that.
Lucky you ;)
That sold out pretty darn fast.
Hope they get more in
I don't. Nintendo isn't consumer friendly with this crap. They don't deserve the money
Man, I wanted to get one too. Maybe from Amazon than.
2 am est?!? Are u kidding me
How much money do Nintendo want?
I think it is disgusting that nintendo is putting their fans through this. I'm done with them. I will emulate their shit from here on out.
The Switch sold out in about 15 minutes, as did the initial wave of Xbox One X pre-orders as well. Demand for technology is high, and it's not easy to keep up with that, especially with sclapers having it so easy these days. Even if the first wave was a few million, I'm sure it wouldn't have taken very long.
20 mins is an improvement. I remember the NES Classic, my page wouldnt even load up.
Didn't even have a chance to send me a notification lol. That's retarded lol. I guess I'll just get a pi or something and pirate every retro game since that's the only way to play them.
Buy the time I went to checkout it was already gone from my cart. I was pissed
Raspberry Pi is waiting for you guys. Slap Retropie on that badboy and play all the classics. Can even put Kodi on it too.
I signed up for the notification and didn't get one. Fuck Amazon and nintendo.
Artificial scarcity. Nintendo is doing this on purpose. What reason will the fanbois use to say they couldn't meet demand again? No ipad screens on this one, so what? They ran out of plastic for the cases? Not enough copper wire for the controller cords? Or maybe they can't source enough 30 year old processor technology? What is it this time?
I got an email notifcation from Wal-Mart 53 minutes ago that it was in stock. Nope. Fuck you Nintendo. Fuck you Amazon. Fuck you Wal-mart.
I had an alert setup from Walmart. Received the email and immediately clicked the link, so literally within a minute - already sold out. AAARRRGH!!!
the fact that it soldout that fast only means they didnt release nearly enough units as usual. i dont enjoy being a part of a rat race and also dont have time to waste chasing one of these down. good thing i have 3000 games on my laptop and can use my DS4 controller with no issues
