I forgot this was out today, and sure as Fuck wasn't going to go out super early to get one, so it's good to know the stock is much better. I'll pick one up if it's available with minimal effort.

 

also RIP Twitter, again

Not even close. The quantities in each store are multiples of what was available for the NES classic. I'm seeing very few reports of people who made some minimal effort coming away empty handed.

Hopefully, the NES Classic re-release goes just like this one.

I was lucky today. I got to Target at 6:50 (store opened at 7am) and was able to get a ticket. I thought that they opened at 8 am so I rushed out the door at 6:40 am. Lol. There were still about 20 people behind me with tickets after I paid.

Next time, i'll actually try to get a pre-order at GS.

Amazon Treasure Truck texted me it's available.  Can you put someone else's name on the pick up?

Yes, I picked 2 classic NES.  all they care is scanning the bar code in the email.  Just have your friend forward you the email or take a screenshot.

I was able to get one from Walmart without any issues after arriving at 5:30am for 7am open. Saw a guy cut in front of others and then asked to buy another at the counter and was denied so he got in line again. Hopefully the reps at the counter denied him a second unit knowing there are others in line who haven't gotten one. F this guy.

Amazon won't ship your order but they will fill up a taco truck full of SNES Classics to sell to flippers in the street.

It's because those Amazon orders are not real. That was readily apparent when someone on Neogaf ordered 99.

Speaking of which, does anyone know how to set an Amazon page to Amazon.com as the seller if they're out of stock and there are many third-party sellers? I am preparing for Amazon to possibly list their actual stock at 1:30 pm est like they do with their exclusive amiibos.

I don't know what's more entertaining... the OPs misspellings or how foolish people are.

Yeah - sounds like there's an awfully good chance I will see one when I happen to be at a store.

Lol at the pathetic scalpers. If I spot one, maybe i'll laugh or give him a nice kick in the pants on my out.

Lazily tried my target, best buy & GameStop, all 3 sold out. GameStop had 17 at their store. Ah well, hopefully they'll restock before too long. Stupid scalpers

Tried at Target about 30 mins after it opened. Apparently they handed out tickets before opening and I wasn't able to pick one up. Oh well, not sure why I'm buying into the hype so much.

it was abolutely stunning how many gamestops i walked into that had snes classics available without a preorder.

 

 

and they only got 12. of all the places for people to wait why did they not go to gamestop. i went there after they were opened and right there, snes consoles. if any of you live near gamestops that dont get a lot of traffic, maybe call them up. worth a try

The lack of proper spelling in this thread makes me glad that I stayed in school

However, I had 2 EU ones ordered and another US for myself.  I ended up selling the EU ones for retail and didn't make any money because I am trying to be a good guy this year.  Hoping Santa brings me that PS PRO I have been wanting to get all year long.

I was lucky enough to get a preorder at gamestop.  I walked in this morning and they were out of the ones not attached to preorders.  I hope you all have good luck finding one.

Went to my local target at 7:30 but they said they gave out vouchers at midnight. Went to Fry's and was number 8 if 16. I've heard mixed reviews for star fox 2 but can't wait to play it, and the rest of the games after that of course.

Meijer sold them at midnight last night, I got there at 10pm and I got the last ticket, 10 out of 10.  Went to GameStop this morning about 15 minutes before tehy opened and I was 9 out of 13.  Finally went to Best Buy where i had a store pickup for Kingdom Hearts 1.5, 2.5 and was greeted by a wall of SNES Classics, lol.  They said they had 100 come in and had only sold about 30 an hour after opening.

So the person in front on me got the last one at Walmart. Oh well, hopefully i can get one on the next  batch. Already found them on Let Go near me for $300. I don't want one that bad.
