Seriously?
Someone dumped the new/final version already? Should have known heh.

I think he meant the one that has been floating around for a while that was claimed by the developer to be only about 90-95% complete.  From the video I have seen it hasn't changed much, seems pretty much exactly like the one I played a while back.  I actually doubt nintendo put much effort into polishing it, probably just focused on the bugs (which it didn't seem to have many at all).  The manpower with the SNES coding expertise is probably slim pickings these days, and Dylan Cuthbert and the others weren't involved he said.

Thanks for sharing this strategy. My local store was close to the top stores listed, so I think the 19 I was told by the manager is either BS or they’re still waiting on a shipment.

Edit: Sorting Brickseek by quantity seems to simply list stores in alphabetical order.

Yep that's what I realized when I went back and looked again.  Still had very high numbers at a few of those stores.  Although, another store showed up with 196.  That store, which is where I got my NES Classic on launch day, had 89 NES Classics on launch day by comparison.  A City Target that had only a single case of 6 NES Classics on launch day was the lowest inventory for SNESC I saw at 54

 

6.19 Miles
Available Qty: 196     Price: $79.99

Well it sounded like the 100% version was done but never dumped to rom/cartridge.. so they could have just used that.

Don't quote me.

Amazon uk says dispatching now. Delivery date list oct 3-10. I selected global expedited shipping.anyone have experience with amazon uk know how long it’ll take?

My Amazon UK preorder just shipped too, although I chose standard shipping. Amazon lists an ETA of 10/13 and the package is being handled by UPS i-parcel.

No I meant from the SNES Classic. All the discussion can be found on Reddit.

What's the best order to hit up stores with fallbacks on Friday?

 

Is the general thinking Walmart -> Best Buy -> Target -> Gamestop?

 

Kinda thinking I'll fallback to Gamestop from Target, anyone know if Target's going to cap the line?

If you mean the US Amazon, then I would say yes. 

And expect a beat up box.

I wonder if all those "I'll trade someone my NES clsasic for a SNES classic" people from a couple months ago are going to follow through with their agreements?  If you agreed to a trade with someone, you better follow through with it. 

 

People ought to put anyone who backs out of trade on blast in here, calling them out by name. 

I still want to trade my spare NES Classic for a SNES Classic European version, and I'm sticking to it.

Gamestop vs Toys R Us? My local Target opens at 8 AM. But both GS and TRU both are located in the same shopping center.

Given this is the same hardware and software iteration, I expect that (if not already) the kernel for the SNES classic will be on the Net, meaning people should be able to essentially drag and drop that onto the NES classic -- and viola - have the SNES classic on the NES classic.  Just pick up some third-party SNES wireless controllers and you're all set.

Not sure what to do. Have 1 pre ordered at GameStop. My original plan was to wait in line for a 2nd to trade for a NES classic, now it seems like they might not be that hard to find. Have 2 24hr Walmart's and another that opens at 6am.

Yup, never been opened. Though, I been tempted to open it to make sure it actually has the contents.

What is going on with Amazon? Do they have 0 stock or what? I assume at least some of us would be getting them in time but seems they won't be shipping any of them anytime soon. Maybe they will ship them all tomorrow.

That's probably exactly what's going on. Either they have 0 stock or very little. If they get a shipment, it probably won't be until end of week or next week.

I made the mistake of not answering that properly. Long day, I just never have opened the box.

Thinking of going to Gamestop on Friday and getting one but not interested in sifting through a mob or waiting in line or anything. Shouldnt be that crazy, right?

So it turns out they did deactivate my red card and I didn't even activate the forced "upgraded" MasterCard they gave me. Looks like my preorder will be lost when they try to charge it. Called target cs and wasted 2 hours getting bounced to multiple people saying another department could help when they couldn't. Online cs is nice but one lady in offshore redcard services was really rude and just angrily repeated her script that she can activate my new card and hung up on me.

Was really going to cancel my redcard but can't give up 5% for bad service. Also read in the insert the new redcard has warranty doubling and price protection which was one of the few deficiencies about the old redcard.

I'm sorry to hear this. That horrible customer service experience sounds frustrating as all hell. That was my worst fear with my Target order. I put off activating that mastercard that I never Fuck ing asked for. My order shipped on the 26th, but it has no tracking yet. The estimated delivery date is Oct 6th. I'm still not activating that damn card until I have an SNES controller in my hands playing some games.

 

I just read this has the same guts as the Mini NES Classic just different casing. I’m still on the fence but after reading this I think I’m passing up on my impulsiveness lol.

I do not understand. Is this a troll post? Is this a legitimate complaint?

 

It's not just, "feels like," that is a fact.  People have already taken the SNES classic apart to find that the insides are exactly the same as the one in the NES Classic.  In short, you are buying the same thing as the NES Classic, but inside a different casing and for $10 more.

 

Article link: http://www.eurogamer...d-nes-mini-tech

 

The SF2 rom is already up on some sites, so basically if you have an NES Classic, you could (if you haven't already) made it into an SNES Classic. 

 

I already had little interest in this thing, and now this pretty much puts at zero. 

I'm not trying to be facetious. I seriously do not understand what you are explaining. Can you please help me understand?

 

This is what I'm understanding so far. Nintendo was supposed to spend unnecessary time and money designing a new system from scratch because this system has 16 bit roms instead of 8 bit roms? Just about any old PC from this century can run these roms. What we are paying for is the plastic SNES casing. I assume that Nintendo is a business that wants to make a profit. Why would they spend money on a new design if they don't have to? If they increase spending on designing new components, that spending would decrease revenue. Companies like to increase revenue.

 

If you want to turn your NES classic into an SNES classic to save $80, that's a good idea to save spending $80. I grew up playing the SNES and would happily pay $80+tax for the nostalgic casing that brings back good memories of my childhood.

 

The SNES classic is $20 more. I could be incorrect (about many things in this post) but I think some people who want 2 controllers don't mind paying $20 more this time. 

 

Please correct me if I misunderstood anything. I welcome criticism. I am truly curious about this. Maybe I am over analyzing a couple joke posts.

As long as you don't activate it until it ships, you should be fine.  But they will auto-deactivate it for you 30 days after they send the new card, which for me just happened to be the day before it would have shipped...

Well, this is one of those rare moments where I am happy that there is a delay. My bank had to issue me a new card recently, and I completely forgot this was coming on Friday. So because of the delay, I was able to switch my payment method without issues. Whew!!!

Anyone’s Walmart preorder shipped yet? I got in on that and then later got the email on Sept 1st saying it would arrive by Fri Sept. 29th. I haven’t had any updates since then.

What time can you go into Walmart and buy it? At midnight?
