the game list is identical to my knowledge, interally it uses the SNES board, which doesn't have any significant changes afaik, maybe more memory but I"m not really sure.

So apparently Walmart (yes, US) preorders came and went. Anyone know how people are finding the preorder pages aside from refreshing/dumb luck? Would like to catch Amazon if they also go up today.

Didn't see any post, I actually heard that somewhere else. Any info on the coming Amazon page would be helpful.

I read the post; lazy has nothing to do with it. A Brickseek link != preorder information. Sorry you're salty I didn't credit you for something I happened to stumble upon elsewhere.

 

 

Amazon has not done preorders in the US

Yes - this would be the first and only question I had asked before you decided to get pissy. Most posters here like being helpful when others ask. SMH.

Already got what I needed, thanks. I won't crap this thread up any further, but suffice to say you need to grow up.

Is this just a reprint of the original classic or is there anything new to it?

The NES and SNES both use the Allwinner A33. No clue if you can swap out the board with any of these much more powerful boards with better integrated GPUs, but it might be worth a try for Dreamcast and later games.

I was just able to pre-order an NES Classic Controller from Amazon (limit 1). It's an Add-on Item, but my order went through after adding another item to go over $25:

My local Walmart has the controller in stock for pickup (YMMV): https://www.walmart....VACNES/54906124

 

I already have the NES Classic from the original run, so I've just been waiting for a second controller.

Thanks! Awaiting cancellations now for both in-store pickup of the console and controller. :)

 

Edit: Just received cancellation email for the console.

Per Wario:

 

 

2 stores near me show in stock

 

https://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker?sku=54043501

 

Lowest stock near me is 18 units, Highest is 60. walmart.com is only showing 2 of the 5 stores that have stock though.

None showing up at any of mine, do we know if there was an official date these were supposed to release?

Picked up my controller at Walmart. It took them 5 hours to get it ready for pickup, so I was pretty sure they were going to cancel my order ^^;

I don't know what the discrepancy is between the controller and console pickups, but I can confirm that the Panorama City, CA Walmart had the systems out in the case today. There were about 15 visible and BS shows them as having over 60 total. So I guess there's no guarantees with the pickup service but they are definitely there to be bought.

They won't ring up at a register unless the employee is willing to override, the registers report them as non distributable since they aren't at their release date yet, controllers do not appear to have a date enforced

That's crazy. Wonder how they got set up with a date but nothing to stop employees from putting them out on the shelves.

 

Maybe some people will get lucky..



#57 Jurai  

Posted 22 June 2018 - 02:52 AM

well, they have an official street date of the 29th, so it makes sense. I got lucky, the walmart employee thought it was weird that my order auto refunded itself when I was there picking it up so she overrode and sold it.

 

TBH though, I'm already seeing some ppl post pics of resellers who cleared out a store so who knows, if you go in being nice you could get lucky, I just lucked out and was there at the right time while my order was still uncancelled

It sucks that these companies don't offer proper pre-orders anymore. I remember preordering the N64 and PS2 nearly a year ahead of time. I know I could have gotten the European edition, but I want the US box and adapter.

I imagine Amazon will end up doing a treasure truck thing again like they did with the SNES, it's kinda silly that US stores haven't done preorders

Was checking Brickseek and noticed that it is now showing that every Walmart in 250-mile radius of where I live has a 0 stock now. Went from having 18 - 30 per store to nada. Anyone else having it show the same for their zip codes?
