If that tweet is accurate, that means every TRU will have between 30 and 90 units. That is a very respectable number. It's possible they have more to give out since they never opened up online preorders, but there was evidence in that chain also that walmarts are getting at least 30 as well. They will still be selling out instantly, but those are at least respectable launch shipments. As others have pointed out, it all boils down to how well N does restocking quickly.

It will also be interesting to see if they let stores like gamestop do more pre orders once it turns out that there will be plenty of stock.

Now everyone can buy 3-5 units for their friends.

Still don't get the madness over these. Sure, there's nostalgia but can't help but think that more than half of the anxiety here is just a bubble created by the NES scarcity (which will now be taken care of with a reissue), and of course the dreadful scalpers.

No way is this thing worth any headache over. Grew up playing some of these games but not sure i'd play any of these much now. Only way I bother is if I see one while i'm at a store ... And even then, maybe.

Was about to post the same thing. I have a UK and Germany pre-order... but all signs seem to suggest Nintendo is actually making more this time around. I might not get them right off the bat but that it should be easier to find as time goes on.

Exactly! Some people just keep falling for the same 'ol trick. I learned my lesson after hearing the same thing from Nintendo about amiibos the last few years

Not like this they didn't.  The Switch was known to be in short supply, they never pretended otherwise - just promised to get more out there.  And as far as the NES, they did not have the expectations they do this time.  "More on release day than all of the last year" is a pretty good commitment to fixing it, as is ending the idea they would stop making them at the end of the year.  And they announced the NES is coming back.

 

They cannot make the NES debacle go away, but they have at least addressed it and signs are pointing towards them following through.

But they did say that SNES production would continue to 2018. And they're also bring the NES Classic back. Yeah, it took them long enough to figure it out but at least they did. 

Plus, at this point, I'm not expecting to get a US release anyway so even though I still plan on looking, if I don't get one, I don't. .:lol:

The thing is "should".  There can be more supplies but that doesn't meant anything if they are beign snatch up faster

I have one pre-ordered from Amazon.de which is the one I want.  I need to get a USB AC Adapter for it.  Is there a Nintendo branded version?  I have been burned by secondary market peripherals in the past.  The American version would be fine, but they were never up for pre-order when I had time.  As of now, I am slated to be at work on the 29th all morning.

 

I am glad there appears to be a lot more shipping of this than the NES Classic.

Well now that it's official, don't expect Toys R Us to actually get new product including the SNES Classic.  They will probably still be able to get suppliers to provide inventory including it, but I'd look longer and harder at other options come September 29th.

There is nothing in that story that suggest today's bankruptcy filing will have any effect on SNES stock. Launch stock has already been allocated to stores anyways, each TRU store is getting approximately 50 for launch.
Both those stories are essentially the same though the ABC story goes a little more in depth as far as vendors sending more stock to other stores rather than TRU though specific vendors aren't named. The vendors were doing this in the lead up to the bankruptcy rumors. Now that TRU has filed for debt restructuring and there are no announced store closures it will be back to business as usual especially, as the stories note, for us the consumer.
More than likely, I would imagine, the holiday season will continue as normal, they will hope to have a strong season, and if not they will probably announce some store closures.
Future shipments of SNES could be affected but again, these stories shed no specific light on that at all. Even if that were true it means the other big retailers will get what was theoretically allocated to TRU, essentially having no bearing whatsoever on people trying to get one.

This means nothing. They filed Chapter 11 which means they are trying to stay in business as appose to selling off their assets and closing shop. Their chances of getting more SNESC is the same as any other store.

Walmarts are getting their shipments in. Punch your zip code in Brickseek and you'll see local stock http://brickseek.com...r?sku=741659089

Looks like every store is getting one shipment of at least 33 around me. One store got double the amount so hopefully each store is getting 100 and has yet to receive their allocation yet. My guess is the mad dash to grab these and resell will happen at first and flare up closer to Christmas but will likely be easier to get this time around.

Thanks...still showing big fat zeroes in LA both for Walmart and Target.  BTW, even if you could somehow get your hands on one early in store, I assume these would be locked out at the register from sale prior to 9/29?

They don't come out for 8 days yet.  That is not the full amount of stock.  All stores here still show zero.
