SNES Classic up at best buy

I'll be ready at 1pm today, have a feeling a few places will put preorders up then. Best Buy needs to do better than a 1:15am preorder time.

Yeah that was shitty. I woke up randomly 30 minutes after they went up and was out of luck. Had it in my cart a few times, but kept getting the OOS during check-out. I hope we see some pre-orders go up today. I would love to not have to wait in line all day to get one on my birthday of all days.

No kidding it was like 2 AM on a Monday when it went up for those of us on the East Coast. I don't know about everyone here, but I work 8-5 Monday - Friday, I don't typically stay up till 2 AM on a Monday night. I happened to wake up randomly and missed the SNES by about 20 minutes and it sucks, but I know I will get one still, it will just probably be a hassle like the NES Classic was.

Well my comment got featured in a Ferrari post. I guess missing preorders wasn't a total a bust.

Same here gotta be up at 6 to take kids to school ; high demand item like this should at least go on preorder at a decent hour to give everyone a fair shot at retail ; saw people saying they ordered 6 wtf

Someone said the Amazon pre-orders already went up too. I haven't seen anything to confirm this outside of a Facebook post by Nintendo Life, but I wouldn't be surprised if they went up while I was on my way to work or something.

I was able to get an amazon order in when i woke up at 4am cst.  It was/is listed with a strange title and no picture, but is probably legit

Some went up on Amazon in a weird place (not the main listing).  But they are supposedly confirmed legit.

They did go up on Amazon. Im hearing they released preorders on a different listing to combat page monitors and tracker apps. But they were definitely legit.

I understand why they did that but it als screwed the smart consumer non scalper; I missed out on mini nes at retail and using the trackers now to avoid shit like this ; if they truly wanted to combat the problem they would have put a quantity limit if you go to igndeals twitter tons of people saying they ordered more then 2. Hiding it from tracker apps is not as useful as quantity limitations ; if they really wanted to hurt the eBayers that's how they would do it this false title block tracker apps didn't do anything meaningful to combat the problem. Also using the diff weird title listing blocked there own customers who signed up to be notified under the correct title

Amazons gonna kill the orders with multiples. But still, the fact they did that stopped bots. There are bots out there that run 24/7 that were most definitely monitoring the original page. They wouldnt have even lasted 5 minutes if it was in the daytime on the original page.

Hope your right ordinal rumor was a limit of 5 even that seems high for this item 3 or even 2 should be the max

At this point, I'm just hoping Nebraska Furniture Mart lists these in 3-4 years when most people have moved on to trying to secure a Wii Classic...

It should be a limit of 1 per customer. Something this high in demand should not have a limit of even 2 per customer. It's bullshit that Amazon puts the pre-orders up and hides them from the page we've all signed up for notifications and have been watching for months now. Then they are letting people order more than one on top of it is utter shit.

Glad I randomly checked CAG to see if there was a visa checkout sale before going to bed last night. Hopefully my orders don't get cancelled, ordered one then decided to order a second for my brother. Guess it paid off getting no sleep since I had my alarm set for 5 hours after they went up.
