I also got one at the end by just spamming the in store pickup.


Either way this thing sold out in like 20ish minutes...so much for the 'increased stock' compared to the nes classic that Nintendo mentioned...

So you don't even have any credit card? If a $90 purchase is enough to spend every last dollar you have available to spend, perhaps you shouldn't be buying this.

It's fucking Nintendo, man. Like a drug...

I think I have a better chance of being struck by lightning through my window after watching the news and finding out I won the lottery than obtaining one of these classics, I just have that feeling lol

Got mine in at around 1:10-15 am ET.

Would've gotten in earlier but i got ballsy and used 2 $25 giftcards during checkout.  :beer:


Got my confirmation and no cancelation email.

Now, to wait till the end of september and hope these stick. 


Also, those who ordered more than 1 on a single account are playing with fire.

i wouldn't doubt if they all get canceled since you know people are gonna bitch @BB in the morning for the quick sellout.

tried so many times and i couldn't get to the last page to checkout.  I guess i gotta wait until the next store when they do preorders.  Congrats to all the ones who were able to get it this time.

Woke up 30 minutes after posting and they are gone. Managed to get one in my cart and can't check out due to out of stock. This really sucks they put it up randomly late at night on a weeknight like this. Looks like waiting in line forever on my birthday is how I'll get one, can't wait to be outside Best Buy several hours before they open with everyone else.....

#SNES Classic and #GO GO GO are trending on twitter...at 2 am. 


Man, what control nintendo has.

They seriously need to consider taking over the world at some point.

Seems like everyone picked store-pickup, but i did free shipping to my home. Was the only one that went through. hopefully theres no downside to that

It did take a while before I got my confirmation. Good luck everyone!

Just got one of my confirmation emails.  Waiting on the other but as we've all seen with the Walmart debacle, no one's order is safe.

Yeah, i just got a confirm for my ship to home order, got the store pickup confirm about 15 mins ago.

WTF why do they put it up in the middle of the night on a Tuesday?...

Ugh. Middle of the night. Woke up 15 mins too late I guess. Tried refreshing a lot but mobile site not super fast. Good luck to all who did get an order through and hopefully the rest of us can get it elsewhere. Going back to bed...

Got one, but I'm not putting all my eggs in one basket on this one.  Especially since BB just failed on a steelbook preorder I had ordered for two months.  I won't rest til I have it in my hands.

People getting cancellation emails, they may not be cancelled. This has happened with Best Buy before when their system gets flooded with orders on new listings.


A decent shot they say tomorrow that those emails are wrong and orders are still good.

Yeah I'm not real sure what's going on with their website. Got a cancellation email at 11:41pm (for in-store pickup), but then I received a "We've received your order, but it's not quite ready!" email at 12:15am.
