Anyone else get this?

 

It says they made a mistake putting it up for pre-order. I didn't order an obscene amount.

 

"Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition. As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall.

Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order.

 

The official launch date for this item is 9/29, please check the product page on Walmart.com prior to that date for any updates. "

All order most likely get cancel because their system made a mistake taking preorder. You're not the only one.

Doesn't matter if you ordered one or one hundred. It was mistakenly listed.

It'll be cancelled a little later like the Tekken price mistake. Actual cancellation for that was about 10 days later.

Not a deal but very relevant information for the people in this forum.  The SNES Classic thread got killed, so one-offs like this are the only way to get any new information on the system/preorders.  Thanks, OP.

Thanks Op, checked my promotions folder and got my cancellation notice as well. Guess they aren't going to do any preorders on this item.

What troubles? Clicking and typing for 5 minutes?

If this had been Gamestop the bitching would have never ended...

Got my order in minutes after the pre-order went live. Got the cancellation email about an hour ago. Glad I didn't cancel my Amazon UK pre-order after ordering from Walmart. Of course I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one doesn't get cancelled as well. This is a pretty big mistake by Walmart given how publicized the SNES Classic has been. Kind of hard to believe they would put the pre-order up accidentally. Ah well. Hopefully Nintendo truly does produce a ton of the SNES Classic.

They are all named "Three Ben Franklins"!  Joking of course, some of the 92 are brothers as well.

Does anyone have a Classic NES cancellation email to trade for my SNES Classic email?  Mine is a USA so I expect yours to be the same.  PM me.
