Almost every Wal-Mart around me has about 30-60 in stock on Brickseek right now.  Looks like there's going to be lots of them out there, which is nice.

No Walmarts near me are showing any stock but it is good to hear you are seeing 30 to 60 per store.  That combined with how many already came out last year and its looking pretty good to pick one up (if you don't have one yet).

When do the NES Classics go on sale? Can you purchase them now?

Any indication of the separate controller SKU?

I tried in vain to nab this in 2016 and swore I would never go to another store or wait in another line to get it. If I'm able to buy it online for $60, I'm in.

 

It'll be a full circle event for me.

I got 5 via amazon UK and SP. Just in case. If I manage to get a US one I'll sell the rest

Is this a new and improved version with a longer controller cord and a few extra games?

I want a second first-party NES controller, but I am not going out of my way to get one. Hopefully, I can just walk into a store and find plenty of them.

Yep, and the store employees give you a quick handy right before they bag it up. This guy ...

I see two WM stores around me with 24 in stock. I'm guessing they won't allow a sale until June 29?

No it’s the exact same unit. Unknown if the old hacking methods still work but everything else is the same.

Use the Wario64 link above and try to get a Walmart store pickup. Worked for me and is probably your surest bet.

Just opened my controller and can confirm it's the exact same ~3ft. cord. I'm quite surprised they didn't update with the longer SNES cord, but then again.. not surprised.  :D

I don't see anything game related in the ad. Am I missing something here?

Found 2 dozen or so on a shelf in the Walmart, in Florida City, FL. They realized the street date, when we scanned them, and took them off the shelves.

How long is the SNES Classic Controller? I already have it, I just want a frame of reference how short NES Classic's controller is

 

SNES Classic already too short. i need to stretch the HDMI to make the controller reach the couch. but i still like it

You'll be disappointed. SNES is 4.5ish feet, NES is even worse. The controller itself is great, though, I think it's actually more responsive than the originals ever were.

 

I have 6' extensions for my SNES and the NES controller makes me wish I'd known there were 10-footers out there. :roll:

The explanation for this is that ads can vary by region; there can be dozens of versions sometimes. Most changes are subtle but often full pages can be different.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification!

I wish Nintendo would see the obvious craze for this thing and make more first party peripherals for it. Why do they continue to let other businesses eat their lunch unopposed?  There exist extension cords for the short controllers, but Nintendo isn't the one selling them. Actually, never mind that. They should be offering a 1st party alternative to 8bitdo wireless controllers. Ones with Nintendo's branding on them that are  the same quality as the short corded wired pads with identical dimensions and button "clicky" pressure. 8bitdo comes pretty close to the quality of vintage, but not quite.

No Cartwheel deals this week (so far), I was hoping that we might see one for the NES Mini, or for the 2DS.

Will the NES classics be available right away or is it only until the 29th?

That is the $65 question... The ad doesn't say anything about it being available on 29th which makes me think that it for sale today

My local target said they had like 60 of them but they aren't allowed to sell them until the 29th. Tried to get them to budge because the print didnt say the 29th but no go. Just gonna have to watch online purchases like a hawk.
