Maybe some are too lazy, maybe some have jobs and other obligations that take priority above game/system launches.. who knows.
Not sure what kind of lives some people lead that they have the time stand around waiting for stores to open but it must be nice. Personally I work 10-14 hour days and I'm not going to play hookie with my job for something that is 'nice to have' but isn't that important overall.
If staying up at night F5'ing or camping out before stores open are what it takes to have a hot item at non-scalper prices, then I'm fine with just not having one. I still don't own an NES Classic and still don't care. If I happen to stumble onto one at a store I'll grab one and be happy, but otherwise it. So far the SNES Classic is looking to be the same deal.
Right, so you don't care.
I understand those sentiments. I have a good friend that shares the same perspective as you. But you also could have sent someone else from your family, your household, or one of your friends to the store for you yesterday and then tipped them twenty bucks or bought them a case of beer.
Your perspective is a healthy one, but most people that are actually getting upset act entitled to one of these systems while putting in exactly zero effort. The whole Nintendo thing seems to have a lot of people initially telling themselves that they don't care, whereas in reality they end up getting frustrated over supply issues and begin lashing out at Nintendo and other people just because they didn't act when they had the chance. If people thought getting one yesterday was hard, well then they are in for a real treat because there won't be any other days this year where attaining a SNES classic will be any easier than yesterday.
Just like release day last year with the NES classic. Best Buys got ~50 units back then. Then when those were gone everyone else was left scrambling to acquire one. Demand skyrocketed. SNES classics are gone now and the same thing will be happening unless the restock days have similar volume as release day.
These things are $180 at this minute on Amazon. Unless they drop to < $120 the supply situation is going to remain exactly the same. You will never see one on shelves. It's free money to anyone who wants to put in a few minutes of work. I'm not advocating for it, but that's just the way it is.
