Hopefully we can actually preorder this time around

lol, fill the thermos and get out the folding chair, lottery tickets are getting handed out at 7.

 

I don't think I'll be able to resist if Star Fox has decent performance and Star Fox 2 is even more refined than the beta rom. My other big conflict is that the Eu/Jp version of the Snes looked a million times better than the horrible NA version but that's the one I played 24 hours straight when I get it for Christmas.

Any chance a pre-order goes live today? lol I'm scared to go to lunch. 

 

haha I love these comments.  People pay $60 for a single new release game, CAGs pay $48.  The perception of pirates is priceless. 

Sorry, chief, but I'm not drooling over whatever Nintendo throws out at whatever price point they want to charge like a little lap dog.

If I can order one from Amazon, I may just order some salt to hopefully get it all sent in a box and not a bubble mailer!

Interesting that there's Super FX Chip games on there.  I'll probably try a lot harder to get one of these than I did the NES classic.

I ultimately settled for a European version nes(that I haven't touched since january), so I predict I will end up getting the same for the snes

Same. I really, really hope they do actual preorders for this.

I learned that I could make hundreds or thousands of dollars, if I wanted.  I also learned that I could enjoy some of the best retro games with legitimate first party controllers and some sleek branded hardware.

They should have also put in Super Street Fighter 2 instead of Turbo. Turtles in Time or even Final Fight would have been a great co-op brawler. They didn't put any in the set which is a big omission when shipping with 2 controllers.

Remember folks, the NES Classic *was* available for pre-order, it's just that many of us (me included) thought $59.99 was a bit too much, so I was waiting for a price reduction after the holidays.  Once released, it was immediately a top item and extremely hard to get.  But it *was* available for pre-order... 

 

Now given the rarity and value that Nintendo has established through limited availability, I'm not foolish enough to believe the pre-orders this time around will last more than 5 minutes.

I have a spare unopened NES that I've been hoarding for this exact moment. I would trade it for a SNES classic lol

A few things in favor of this being less of a shitshow than the NES Classic:

 

- Nintendo is slow to learn and adapt, but they MUST see now that there's a demand for this and increase production. ...right? RIGHT?

 

- Hopefully fewer games + higher price point makes this more profitable for Nintendo than the NES C. With the thin margins (including 3rd party licenses) on that device, I'm sure it wasn't worth it for them to keep making them. Especially considering:

 

- The Nintendo Online service is only confirmed to have NES games in its library. I'm sure that was a factor in killing the NES C early. The SNES C can comfortably exist alongside the online service, as it won't directly compete.

 

- Original rumors said that Nintendo killed the NES Classic to focus on the SNES Classic so in theory they've been in production for some time.

 

ALL THAT SAID, because everyone will expect this to be super limited, no matter how well the SNES Classic ends up being stocked it will be impossible to get for a while because scalpers will buy them all. I expect a big reason Nintendo is releasing this in September is so that the supply chain has a chance to even out before holiday shopping season. We'll see if that plan works for them.

An Ebay listing is not news, nor is it interesting. When will people get over that?  I could make a listing for pocket lint for a thousand dollars in one minute.  WHO CARES!

You must be new to Nintendo? You're naive optimism is cute and refreshing though.

I do as well. I'd trade it without hesitation if I'm not able to secure one of these.

I owned a SNES when they were new, if that means anything. I'm not a conspiracy theorist. "Planned scarcity" is nonsense. Nintendo likes money. They may do this as a small run for some weird reason, but plenty of signs point to this being better stocked than the NES Classic.
