Not a deal, but its still hard to get, especially around the holidays.

 

I received an email saying the NES Classic Edition will be available today via Woot.com's mobile app. Most of their app exclusive daily releases are at 3PM PST. If you enable push notifications, it should notify when its live. Good luck!

Yeah, maybe he meant SNES Classic, as I can't see anyone still with stock selling NES models at retail cost.

No, he's correct, unless Woot got it wrong. I got the email, too, and they even show a pic of the NES classic.

Nintendo said they were making more NES-C, although I thought they meant next year.

These will last all of about 5 seconds, right?

I'm putting my money on the app breaking in less than 2 seconds.

This is an early April fools prank right?

Different ways in which Woot is probably screwing with us:

 

1.  Price will be way higher than $59.99.

2.  Consoles will be pre-owned/refurbished.

3.  Less than 10 units will be available.

4.  App gets fucked.  Can't add to cart or checkout.

 

I'm guessing nobody here will successfully score one, and that this is just a sleazy ploy by Woot to acquire new users and app downloads.

 

Hope I'm wrong.

Yes, but not until next summer, as they are still manufacturing the SNES Classic for the time being.

I don't see 2 seconds happening. LOL

Probably. LOL

 

Or they are just trying to get downloads for their app, in the hopes that people may like it past not getting the NES Classic, which is doubtful. But I've seen way worse scams in my time, so good luck to them.

Right and they had that treasure truck promo months back where they had 1000s of them when they were sold out everywhere and production had ceased so who knows if they've been sitting on this stock for whatever reason or if Nintendo gave them a new batch.

They didn't sell out. By the end of the Treasure Truck in my city, they still had hundreds left. This may be back stock from that.

From the reviews on the app store, it looks like ppl are saying is click bait... a lot of users are complaining scam to make you download...

So you just get a notification when it's live? Seems like a total crap shoot

I rolled the dice! 

 

I downloaded the app, created a Woot account, saved all my payment and shipping info, and then turned on all notifications for the app.

 

Wish me luck!

Yup, that was my bad. Realized it after posting that the OP said 3PM PST, not 3PM EST. It's been a long day...hahaha.

So the hint is there's 5 units and a cat in a wormhole is in charge.

For any of you look for SNES classic here is some advice. Every Wednesday or Thursday between the hours of 1030AM to 2PM ganeatops get their SNES shipments and it's very easy to buy since they don't advertise but you do have to ask at the counter

I got 2 yesterday and I was able to get one at launch now I got 3 which I am thinking one 2 keep and the other 2 to give my nephews

The NES Classic popped up right at 5, but the page for it won't load!  What a shocker!
