I plan on preordering anywhere and everywhere that offers them just to increase the odds.


I think a lot of us are going to do just that for the same reason. I've got 2 EU orders locked down and I'll probably end up keeping the 2nd for trade bait. Still haven't had any luck with the Metroid Legacy Edition incidentally if someone wants to trade... lol

No sign of Japanese preorders yet either. Although they are probably last one everyone's list since you can still get a Famicom mini now.

Me too. I want to get 3 as im helping 2 of my brother in laws who arent a CAG like me. If i get more thats fine cuz i know others who want them and im not some scrub scalper and will simply charge them what i paid for it at retail.

I received a customer satisfaction survey about my recently completed order for an SNES Classic from Walmart.  I was not satisfied.

Haha That made me laugh out loud, literally. Nah but seriously whenever I get duplicate stuff in the past I sell it to someone I know for what I paid. I want items to go to people who actually want it and not those looking to make a quick buck. The universe pays you back with stuff like that because a while back I obtained a few of the gen 1 amiibo i was missing from a fellow CAG who sold them ro me at retail (plus tax & shipping of course).

I hope to find more like that again on my quest for Smash yoshi, Smash metaknight, Smash Rosalina & Luma, Smash wii fit trainer, and Skyward sword link. Those are all I need to own one of every current USA amiibo.

Just noticed that Target has their placeholder page up,

Surprised no one mentioned it as it's been up since the 2nd apparently.

Thread moved back into deals forum due to preorders coming up later this month. Use this thread only for posting preorder availability. General discussions need to be done in shopping discussions. Following the thread at the top right should send you an email notification.

 

Posting a link with the purpose to troll will result in account suspension.

 

Edit: New stock alert thread. This one will be use for discussion.

Thank you. It's about time that this thread becomes strict with that. I'm just about tired of getting notifications with hopes of a preorder live alert of a sort only to stumble upon politics or anything irrelevant. With that said, sorry about posting this reply. To all those in my situation, I mean. Have a nice day and happy hunting!

Really should just make a new thread and sticky that. The 3200+ replies here are not doing anyone any good and to anyone new, they may not know it'd be a total waste of time to look at any of them but the first.

I didn't want to start a new one since this one had around 400 followers but I think it is best to start a new clean thread. Thanks for the suggestion.

I was in gamestop today, and the csr that rang me up said that their store did preorders last year for the nes classic, and were definitely going to get the snes classic in stock, but no idea when exactly that was going to happen, This was nyc, I can try swinging by the nintendo flagship store in midtown the next time I'm in the area to see if any of the reps there have any up to date news.

 

The gamestop worker said that IF there are no pre orders, it will just be first come first serve on the day of the launch.

Use borderlinx, I made a post about borderlinx earlier in the thread last month detailing how to get it done

 

http://www.borderlin...es/how-it-works

 

edit, I have not got an email from amazon uk just yet, asking me to cancel or update my addy, but I will definitely use borderlinx if and when I do.  Seems like an ideal workaround for cases like this, it looks like they charge about 10 bucks as a handling fee, and we would pay the actual shipping charges for the second shipment, maybe 15 bucks all together to make sure you that your pre order goes through.

 

I am sorry you had your order cancelled, I was able to change mine in time to my borderlinx address.  The amazon UK standard shipping cost to anther UK address is free, but I am paying about 11 pounds in taxes(called VAT in UK), and I will pay about another 15 dollars in shipping and handling to borderlinx to ship the package to me when it arrives.  Borderlinx will give me a discounted shipping code for my first purchase with them, so that is something, but all in all, I am going to be paying about 20 dollars extra than what I would be paying if I just stood in line on the day of the launch at gamestop, or best buy or whatnot, and bought a USA version for 80$US + tax.  I may end up doing that as well to try to mod one of them but at least I know for sure I will be getting at least one of these consoles.  I had to take extra steps, but it is worth it to me for the peace of mind, I know a lot of you ordered from amazon of UK and may be fretting that your order will get cancelled after reading about other people on here getting their orders cancelled,  This is one way to make sure that it will not get cancelled.

I made my own SNES Slim. Used motherboard from early heavyweight super nintendo with the separate shielded audio box & of course S-Video capabilities. Accepts Super Famicom games too no pesky adapters needed. Sure, it's not as mini as the snes classic but it has a much larger game library. No Starfox 2 but I think I can live without it. Still I will grab a snes mini if the opportunity ever presents itself to me, for collecting purposes that is.

I read a similar story on reddit/r/minisnes Hopefully this isn't a replay of the Walmart disaster where they trickle cancellations out then cancel them all a couple days later.

Do what I did and pay a little more for borderlinx(essentially a European shipping service, you buy items on a euro website, they ship it locally to borderlinx and then borderlinx ships it to you.  No stress, no chance of a cancellation.
