I can't see any actual quantity on Target Brickseek in my area yet--says unknown. How are ya'll getting numbers for Target already?

 

BestBuy's the safest bet, since they announced a ticketing system. But I'd really prefer Target since I got credit I wanna get rid of.

I'm going to target at 9 am, anyone who wanted one would be in line tonight.

There are a loooooooot of Target stores with high 100's and quite a few with 200+ all the way up to 300.  They're mainly in the major cities but I'm feeling pretty confident on this one.  There are even a hell of a lot of Target stores still returning 0 but that had very high inventory counts show up earlier in the week, so the 100K number that they currently have in stores is actually much lower than the actual amount.

No one is selling online this time? Thought for sure Best Buy or Gamestop would but some up online, guess they are tired of it knocking the website offline.

 

I just hope they made enough to really knock the price down on eBay. That will make them available everywhere if the resale value sucks.

What SKU are you using, mine shows nothing for any area...

Sorry for the late reply. Cell service wasn't very good in the store. So I was talking to other gamers in line. Here's the SKU I used:

Ha

Maybe they did start selling them tonight, even though they aren't 24 hour locations.

 

Oh well. I'm not going out earlier than 6am for one. I'd rather skip it than go out earlier than that tbh :P

Quick ran to my nearest Walmart at midnight, they were getting 25. They had cut the line and sent people home, but I decided to stick it out. About halfway through, they realized they were short... Apparently some dude with a kid let his buddy hop in line, so they got at least one extra unit... I didn't want to stick around for the drama, so I left. People are A holes...

 

 

 

Has anyone had their Walmart orders ship yet? Still in "Preparing Order" like it has been all week.Preparing order

The Walmart I was at was listed on Brickseed as having 36 units. At about 11pm CT, I could count over 40 people in line. At 11:45, they announced there were only 36 consoles (I was 15th in line). Then they counted people in line and sent over ten people home empty handed. I'm glad I got there by 10pm because it seems there were 36 people in line before 11pm.047786ae407e473811e55b7d24e9de4d.jpg

Mine says shipped and has a tracking # when I go into order history; but I didn't get any email. Even though it says shipped it says delivery date of Monday, October 9th...

Hope i saved you the trip, i was also about to head to West Kendall since they always had good stock on hard to find shit in the past like the Switch.

 

Fuck it, i'll just head on to bed.

 

Definitely egg on my face for expecting this to be any different than the NES Classic shitshow.

Yup, friend checked out the Florida City Walmart and I went to the Cutler Bay Walmart. Both gave us the same story about how they hadn't received the shipment yet and to call in the morning to see if their trucks had already come by.

I got lucky: my BestBuy order arrived at 8 AM this morning, Thursday 8/28.  Was able to pick it up from local post office.

 

I also have one at BB for local pick up (I ordered one each way since I basically don't trust them with big time pre-orders).  They really came through.  Prob just gonna cancel that one so someone else can have it  :)

 

Did anyone from the US order one of those Amazon UK SNES units?  I like that look!

Local Walmart had 27.  They handed out tickets prior to midnight.  Once 12:01 hit and you weren't there when they called your number they resold it.  One person missed out and my dad actually bought it.  Good luck to those still searching.

Probably missing 2-3K (48 stores) so maybe somewhere around 105,000 total in store.

Leaving work tonight I saw about 6 people already waiting at 9:30pm for them at my local Best Buy. I'll wish them luck, I'm sure one of them will get my second pre-ordered one that they canceled. Will be interesting to stop by on my break to see if there are any left and how it went.

After getting burned on the Walmart preorder fiasco, I was able to get one tonight at the midnight launch! They had 20 units total. I showed up at 10pm and was #4.  They let a guy get two.   The walmart rep that carted them out was spaced out as Fuck. Kept pacing in place like he couldn't stand still, was holding one each and shaking them and juggling them and callously dropping them back into the kart and picking the units back up again until midnight came.  Such blatant disregard for merchandise. I know it's Walmart, but jesus christ man.  He seriously gave me the creeps in general.

Too bad I didn't know about this thread earlier. I thought there would be one in the regular video game section and that they wouldn't start selling these in stores until the morning. Probably too late to line up anywhere.

i made an official thread there, makes more sense for it to be there. its official there unlike here

Nobody's ever lined up for anything before?

Oh crap... I forgot, the Internet made people lazy and increased the size of the index finger due to repeated attempts on trying to destroy the f5 key.

Got one too. Only one store in the region had stock after refreshing a bunch of "out of stock" listings. I'm doubtful and hopeful (is that possible?)

most targets are getting 100+ why wouldnt it be fulfilled? not like your target will sell out, with every story getting some and these costing $80

Only three of the Target stores that pop up on Brickseek are showing actual quantities.  For the last hour one of them has been steadily decreasing in units every few minutes from 60units down to 42now.  The store has been closed for nearly three hours.   Some manager must be selling them to the overnight crew lmao.  No idea what else it could be.

 

Meanwhile at Walmart, half the stores went to zero quantity around 1am.  The other half haven't changed their quantities.  It looks like half the stores sold their stock and the other half are waiting till AM opening.   They all closed at 12 or 1am.

Someone will have to fill the .com order before they open at 8am or else it will be sold to someone else.

Also got in on this, via only one local store in my area that had it available. Lots of folks (including "Target managers") on twitter saying it will get cancelled, but here's to hoping.
