"“I would strongly urge you not to over-bid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites,” Fils-Aimé said. “You shouldn’t pay more than $79.99.”"
Good point but again, that's really up to Nintendo if people can get one or not. All that said, Nintendo does seem to plan on stocking more SNES Classic units this holiday season.
"Certainly the demand is there and the supply chain is there. Can we do more? It depends on our ability to make more,” Mr Fils-Aimé said on stage at the Variety event. “We don’t want to have a consumer disappointed by not being able to get one for the holiday season. But managing that complex supply chain is a challenge.”
It really is so we will see how easy they are to get.
Nintendo Is Bringing Back The NES Classic in 2018!
I just hear about this morning but it seems Nintendo is going to bring back the Nintendo Classic in summer of 2018 and Nintendo isn't discontinuing the SNES Classic after the holidays after all!
"We’re happy to confirm that we’ll continue to ship stock of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System to Europe in 2018.
In addition, next summer we’ll also bring the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System back to Europe. More information will be shared in the future."
Good news for people that missed out on the NES Classic the first time around but I imagine they will still be quite hard to come by.
I Was Able To Pre-Order a SNES Classic.. Again
Oh and I didn't want to make a big deal out of it but I was able to pre-order a SNES Classic on Walmart. I subscribed to Wario64 on Twitter and was part of a brief window where I was able to pre-order one for about 7 minutes. I've waited a bit to talk about it but the order seems to have "stuck" and it ships in early October. Really great news after my earlier pre-order on Walmart was cancelled. I'm planning on getting it in October and packing it up to open on Christmas.
