I currently work overnight at Best Buy and we got a huge shipment of SNES Classic for a ticket event Saturday Morning, I haven't been able to keep up with BF ads but I was told it was an unannounced event, permission to roast me if this was known or on the ad.

I can only assume this ticket event, if true, is in-store only.

 

If so....Nintendo can continually remain choking on a cock-a-doodle-doo!  ;)

They had one at my gamestop yesterday when I went. Super surprised. I got one about a month ago so I didn't buy it but it was nice to see one out in the wild. And surprising no one had bought it yet!

When I went to Gamestop yesterday, there were people in line ahead of me with one and another one being held up at the counter.  if I wasn't already buying a PS4, I probably would've asked for one myself.

Interesting to see them still tricking in - maybe they're getting ready for a last holiday push in a week or two?

Walmart and GameStop received sporadic shipments for Black Friday, but they are most likely gone by now.

My best buy literally had a pyramid of them stacked pretty high. No tickets needed. These things arent rare anymore. At least here.

Looks like the event starts tomorrow at 9 AM. While stores have gotten a decent amount of these for Nintendo standards, I would not count on these things being around for long this holiday season.

Target in edina, mn had about 8 or so as of 2pm today. Seemed like no one was really interested in them.

Yup - same - not rare anymore, and frankly, not in much demand -- saw so many people just walk right past them without even blinking an eye.  One guy looked at one, and his little kid looked at the box, and immediately then pulled his dad towards the Switches and PS4s.  Smart kid.

Just got an email from Best Buy showing it’s a door buster tomorrow and in store only.

Saw a few at my local Gamestop last night.  I've actually seen these a few times since launch.

Saw 2 in the same day and didn’t get either. Strongly hinted to my wife that I wanted it and holding out hope she got to the store to get it, but not enough to hold my breath on.
