I'm beginning to hate Nintendo just based on the amount of times I have to see "SNES Classic" written/talked about everywhere.

In line for Super Nintendo classics and they are saying the deal is for tomorrow (Sunday) and that the ad shouldn’t have come out.

Yes, they decided to sell them to people. But they were sticking to there “we shouldn’t sell till Sunday” but. They had about 20 in store.

The issue is randomly getting lucky and having your GameStop have one when you walk in to check, vs knowing that they will have them in store today.

The Mckinney, TX store had 40 or 50. There were about 10 people in line when I showed up at 8:30. 30 or so when the store opened. There were 15 or so left on the table at the front of the store once I left. Happy to finally have one, and I “only” paid retail!

Not too bad.  I picked up one at the front checkout around 10 am without a ticket.  They had them under the counter, so I have no clue what they had left.

* Usually

 

Besides trading in games at GS, I honestly hate going into the store just to browse or ask them a question.

 

Side note/rant. I am really starting to get annoyed that stores aren't willingly posting whether or not they have stock, through their online stock checker (for stores such as best buy, walmart, gamestop that have a stock checker). That or if it is in stock, not being able to just purchase it through the website for store pickup. I know they use these type of promos as bait to get you into the store, in hopes of buying other crap, but I just want to set it for store pickup and be in and out within 5-10 minutes. I don't want to go to the store on the premise they MIGHT have it in stock, as I'm wasting gas/time doing so if they run out. I hate wild goose chases.

I went to gamestop thanksgiving night at almost closing and the manager said he'd had one all week, just no one else asked. So I would try them too

Place the item on hold from the GameStop website and wait for an email confirmation. Once confirmed, call the store to very that they actually placed the item on hold for you (One time they placed it on hold for me and didn't even have it in stock). But yeah I agree that GameStop should have a purchase for store pickup option on their website.

Well just got home from lunch with the in laws to celebrate my daughters second birthday. We left a bit early to swing by gamestop because my wife wanted to try and get me one for Christmas and they had one of those cages locked up with a handful of these and switches. So excited.

I couldn't tell if the poster is just very old and thought that was acceptable somehow, or what.

No dice just casually strolling into places at 3PM in the Philadelphia area.  Not in the market, was just curious.

Thanks for posting this! I live in South Dakota so when my stores have gotten past shipments, there was very few available. Most I heard of was 15 in one shipment. I walked in today at about noon after seeing this, didn't see any sitting around anywhere and eventually found an employee I used to work with there a few years back. They had some green tickets we needed to grab before buying them. Got ticket 55, seemed like there may have been 20 or so left. Unfortunately there was a limit of 1 and they didn't have any wireless controllers.

 

TL;DR Thanks for posting this, I finally got one!

Since they were supposed to release today (read that in this thread), do you think it’s worth hitting them up this morning? I never could get anyone to answer the phone yesterday so I don’t know if they sold them early.

I believe they were mistaken about today being the launch day. BB corporate site had a posting stating Saturday was the day. I would take corporate over a random store any day. Regardless if you really want one it wouldn’t hurt to drive in and check
