Last night after we tucked away the little one to sleep my partner and I decided to watch a movie. More than half way in a Cheerful Ghost user hardeyez texts me that he just pre-ordered the Super Nintendo Classic on Walmart and I should head over to do the same. Immediately I let my partner know the emergency situation and we paused the film and I frantically created a Walmart account and put in the pre-order in what I consider to be the quickest new account creation process ever. A few minutes later I messaged Travis, WhiteboySlim and Scrypt but by the time Travis went to pre-order the Classic that Walmart page had crashed. I heard stories that people that pre-ordered the system woke up to Walmart telling them they didn't have stock for them but... so far... it looks like it's a pre-order success story.

Needless to say securing a Super Nintendo Classic really made my evening and that next morning. I really wanted to get the Nintendo Classic and wasn't looking forward to having another year roll by and missing out on Nintendo next retro re-release. According to Walmart the Super Nintendo Classic should arrive on October 6th which is just in time for it to get packed away for Christmas. Even though i'm getting the Super Nintendo Classic October 6th I still want to wrap it up and open it on Christmas. It just seems like playing it on Christmas morning is the best way to experience it.. or at least that's the plan right now.

Some people have noted what the point of getting one is if you own quite a few of these games already? That's a good point but considering I don't actually own most of these games, this is a pretty inexpensive way to get them. I don't own Earthbound and getting the SNES cart for $300 doesn't sound that appealing to me. Plus out of all 21 games on the Super Nintendo Classic technically I only own 5 and it would be 6 if the kid I loaned Secret of Mana too returned it to me. Funny story with that is a couple of years ago I met that kid at a bar and I mentioned to him he still had my Secret of Mana cart. We both laughed and he said that i'd never get it back.

Now I will.

If you want to listen to me pine away about the Super Nintendo Classic you should listen to the first Episode of a new Podcast "Cheerful Ghost Radio."

Lucky! I read that pre-orders were available, but quickly depleted.

Yeah seems like Walmart had a 30 minute window?

Hahahaha not trying to brag but I do this video game site and I had this topic to write about...

Yeah I know, and it's definitely braggable. Just giving you a hard time. ;)

It's seriously awesome and if you're the only one here who gets one you gotta do a breakdown.

I plan on it, when I open it, to do a pretty interesting break down. That said by the time December rolls around people will have dissected it from the atomic level already. But you know, better late than never I guess smile

I read today that all the Walmart Pre-Orders are being cancelled due to a system glitch. The Pre-Orders were not supposed to happen. Bummer if this is true

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 07/27/2017 at 07:08pm

Yeah it is, that did happen. I'm going post about it but i'm not really excited about it so i've stalled a bit on that.
