These suckers are selling out fast so be sure to secure your place in line.
Yet another Nintendo Cluster [email protected]#%!! Thanks again for making like 100 of the damn things Nintendo. Typical. I swear I think the executives are scalping these damn things themselves.
100? Come on, man, don't exxaggerate. They made 105.
104 after you take away the one I got :P
Personally I'm holding off for now and hoping that demand dies down a bit when people realize it's not quite as rare as the NES Classic. With the NES classic they were only planning on making 2 million or so, as it was intended to be a novelty item and they didn't expect such high demand. This time around I expect it to remain a hot commodity through the holidays, but since production is planned longer and they're planning on producing more I'm expecting them to be much easier to find after people realize it's not nearly as scarce as the NES classic was. https://www.forbes.com/site...
Special shout out to the target website - thanks for Fing up my preorder.
DUDE No SHIT!!! order went through and everything then poof! No recent orders
Their site clearly went belly up and now they are trying to cover that up. Not able to handle the load. At one point it showed I had 4 in my cart and then boom saved for later and then out of stock. I am sure someone got lucky and is not getting 500 of them, but man this is so beyond frustrating and NINTENDO is to blame for this. People by nature want what they cannot have. Case in point here.
GameStop still has no listing for it. Either they haven't started taking preorders yet or they aren't going to.
I just went to Gamestop a few minutes ago and preordered it in person. Doesn't hurt to call them and see.
I went to gamestop an hour ago and they told me they are not doing pre orders. They say it's first come first serve.
wife and I went in to preorder in person today too. lucky to know the managers well. gave me the tip off early
My local GameStop was allocated 6, I was one of the lucky ones.
Went to my Gamestop, pre orders were gone. Asked how many they had to pre order, he said 2.
Gamestop here took preorders the day after the announcement. I've had one ordered for about about 2 or 3 months now. (Ireland)
Amazon US is our last hope. They still,haven't went up for pre order yet. Target and best buys screwed me over.
I thought they went up last night?
I didn't see them go up at all on Amazon but then again I wasn't watching all night. I,am a,prime member and set up for alerts and I haven't received an alert. I'll keep watching.
They went up at like 4 in the morning on a separate listing than the one that's been up for months. Insane
Wow...thats so lame
To get one? You need a DeLorean- get it up to 88 mph and go back to yesterday.
Okay, how to get one, in September simply wait outside your choice of retailer and beat up the first person you think you can take. You're welcome.
here is a crazy a idea, make 100 million of them and make billions
Why do that when they can make 100 and make thousands!
You guys in 'murica seem to get royally disserviced by these Nintendo Classic consoles 😖 Amazon is my only hope of getting one from there, and it's proven rather difficult to obtain just one.
Got 2 wooo
Im very happy i saw it on my twitter feed and then drove to gamestop for it.. I knew they were going run out!
I am about done with Nintendo. Don't have the time or patience to run in circles or to justify their backwards thinking and lack of logic. Would my son and I like one, sure. Am I going to scour the interwebs,and jump through hoops, for a product they are making like 50 of, nope. FU Reggie. and more importantly FU Nintendo. Only company I know that continually treats their customers like this.
Same, just get launchbox + roms and be done with it.
They initially planned on the NES Classic being a novelty item and production was incredibly low. They've said they're planning on producing a lot more SNES Classics. I imagine the SNES Classic will be incredibly hard to find for the next few months because everyone thinks it's going to be as limited and hard to find. However I don't think it'll be as bad as the NES Classic. Now, that being said, if this time around they only produce like 3 or 4 million then they royally f***** it up. They should be making twice that easily. https://www.forbes.com/site...
all the flippers and scalpers got their orders going, meanwhile real fans have to pay double on ebay
Don't incent the scalpers, appeal to Nintendo and give them feedback.
It was a mad scramble here in Canada at 1PM (Best Buy and EB Games went live online). Was able to secure one on Best Buy's site 90 seconds after preorders went live. They sold out shortly after..
Nintendo just loves artificial demand. These things could be mass produced, but they don't care. As it is all you would need to do is make raspberry pie machine with an emulator on it...
