Looks like Nintendo is recommending people don't pickup a SNES Classic for more than $80 on the third party market. Hopefully they can stock many more units of the SNES Classic so things don't come to that but my guess is they will still have some supply issues.

"“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.

And thanks again for that tip! I think I got my preorder in literally seconds before they were out of stock.

Yeah man, I was glad you got one.

I better get a SNES classic. I have a few trackers that I am monitoring.

Most important question: How long are the controller cords?

I think 5 feet this time around.

Oh good. In a moment of weakness, I did attempt to pre-order an SNES Classic from ThinkGeek, but the site timed-out on me when I tried to submit the order. It's good to know that I may have another chance to fail my will save.

I almost got it from a Think Geek bundle too but couldn't because of the demand. Kind of glad that didn't work out, it was expensive and I didn't want that other stuff.

Well.. I tried to get one on Think Geek. The site was crushed immediately.
