I can’t believe I was able to pre-order a SNES Classic last night. I literally ran to grab my wallet. If you haven’t heard, the Super Nintendo Classic‘s Pre-orders are finally out. They are sold out everywhere. I am attaching links below of where you can purchase them. GameStop has recently been stocking them.
If you look on Nintendo‘s social media, fans are furious. For a company as large as Nintendo, there should never actually be a shortage of products. However, this has been their strategy ever since the Nintendo Wii. It builds interest and more sales over time rather than at specific quarter ends or during the holiday season. Nintendo will most likely release a surplus during the holiday season, so don’t panic just yet.
If you search on E-bay, the prices being set are insane so I would not recommend it unless you are that desperate. Nintendo will be stocking more so I highly recommend checking the links and staying up to date.
The official word from Nintendo: You can now pre-order the Super Nintendo Classic Mini late this month. I highly recommend pre-ordering this if you are interested. Last year, the NES Mini was sold out everywhere and stopped production in April. Although Nintendo has stated they will produce a significant amount of units, you can expect many retailers to be sold out if you are waiting to find it in stores. Nintendo stated
“A significant amount of additional systems will be shipped to stores for launch day, and throughout the balance of the calendar year.”
They will eventually stop production in the following year similar to the NES Classic Mini.
Wal-Mart recently cancelled all pre-orders from their website late in July due to a technical issue. If you have pre-ordered before this article, I recommend checking your e-mail to see if your order was cancelled.
If you have been looking for the Super NES, you’re gonna wanna sign up ASAP. They were first available for pre-order on Walmart.com. They are currently sold out now. (Of course). You can now receive updates on online retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy. These are not pre-orders, simply alert responses when they come back in stock. It’s a slow news day. Many of the links are for the United States only.
