Pretty annoyed that I foolishly thought I somehow got super lucky and ordered one with no trouble at all. Maybe Nintendo ordered Walmart to accidentally let the preorder go live to gauge interest in the product early so they could up production to meet demand. Haha nevermind.

I got the cancellation email but my order is still up on my account. This is ridiculous. Hopefully it somehow doesn't get cancelled but obviously that's a longshot.

I got the email, payment's still showing up on my Paypal summary though.

 

Edit: Refund received, shows as cancelled on the order page.

I'm fully expecting to get another email soon saying the cancellation emails were what were accidental, not the pre-orders. Also expecting Nintendo to seriously under-produce the SNES Classic relative to demand then stop making them and innocently announce they had no idea there would be much interest in the console.

Not even a gift card for our troubles?  Classic Walmart.


Man c'mon. They honor price mistakes or give giftcards to make up for price mistake cancels. I hate Walmart like the next but we all knew that they adding preorders was a mistake and a glitch. We can't expect a giftcard from that.

this probably belongs in the ongoing discussion thread in the shopping forum

lol it's funny how the majority of people who complain about threads are usernames I never see. Also hopefully people didn't cancel their U.K. Order if they happened to get one from Walmart cause that would be ever worse.

Thank op for putting out this thread on the deal section. Not a deal but relevant info for those who pre ordered. Unfortunately mine got cancelled as well :(

I miss the good ol' days when you could actually pre-order a system months ahead of time and pick it up on launch. Now, you have to look at your computer or phone 24/7 and camp out thanks to Nintendo playing the artificial shortage game.

I received a cancellation email from Walmart but also received a date change email. I had 2 separate orders on 2 separate cards. The second email is the update to pre order release date.

It's not naïve to hope that if no one takes pre-orders, it'll be harder for people to hoard them, is it?

I also got the email today. This definitely solidifies the thought that these will be just as scarce as the NES Classics (I hope I'm wrong).

You complaining about this not being a deal is not a deal.  Off-topic!

 

It's extremely relevant information for those of us who are waiting for preorders to go live.  Extreme relevance overrides "not a deal" complaints.  *shrugs*

Probably an automated thing not taking the pending cancellations into account (might take a few days for them to fully cancel the orders).
