A big problem with this one is that even if they do pre-orders, people will be pre-ordering multiple copies even if it's not for scalping purposes. A lot of people will be scared of pre-orders being cancelled and will go with multiple vendors just to be safe.

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.

You are so damn adorable. More people like you would make Nintendo threads more enjoyable. Just don't bank on those lofty expectations you have.

It is a sin that Final Fantasy II (IV) isn't included.

They like money but they are risk adverse. Which leads to them never producing more than they can sell. Their conservative nature leads them to under produce and create a scarcity. This scarcity while not artificial, does benefit them greatly in multiple facets.

Never had a SNES.  Kinda interested even though I'm not really a fan of a closed "console" like this.

Shit's been on literally every single platform ever. FFVI deserve it more.

 

Boggled by the non-inclusion of Chrono Trigger though, last really big game that isn't on there.

I actually want this, but the chances I'd actually get one are probably slim to none. :*(

It won't be closed for long.

If they had included Chrono Trigger and Turtles In Time, this would have been essentially perfect.

Are you flirting with me?

 

I have no expectations, man. This is probably gonna be hard to find no matter what. But I see some light at the end of the tunnel. Nintendo seems to have figured out a few things with the Switch and meeting demand, and I see where this could sit in their current plans in a way the NES Classic didn't in a pre-Switch world.

 

If I get one, great! If not, I'll keep waiting for someone to make an FPGA SNES so I can buy it and an Everdrive and bypass Nintendo completely, just like I did last year when I sold the NES Classic I got on launch day and used that money to buy the Retro USB AVS.

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!


I'm not bothered by the actual listing as much as the implication that this will be yet another product I will not be able to walk into a store a easily purchase

I reported it, his listing show July 3rd delivery, but the text says 9-17-2017.  Both are wrong.  He claims he got a pre-order in on Amazon, which is bullshit.  And he has no feedback whatsoever.

I'm glad they are including 2 controllers. Maybe this time the cable lengths will be good lol.

IMO getting the extra controller was harder than the console

Yeah, I thought that game was going to be a total shoo-in. They went beyond that thought and paid to license both Final Fantasy III and Secret of Mana from Square which is surprising. 

 

Final Fantasy II and Chrono Trigger are the two glaring omissions from the list, but the lineup is still very impressive.

Holy shit that game list is phenomenal! Can't wait for disappoints though, I flipped many NES Classics but the first SNES Classic I can get my hands on will go in the collection forever. Crazy they threw in Starfox 2 in there too!

I hope for the love of god Nintendo makes enough quantities of these this time. It's not like there are a lot of avenues to play Star Fox 2 legitimately.

Can't believe Star Fox 2 will be on there! So pumped to not find one in stock

The only game I'm really disappointed that is not on it is donkey Kong country 2. Bummer it isn't on it but will try to buy one anyone. The snes was always my favorite console of all time.

About the same time we can expect the unexpected.

Noticed that myself. I was expecting FFII to be included, along with Chrono Trigger.
