Systems should be available at midnight for Walmart and Meijer 24 hour stores. I was able to get the system at midnight the first time.

My Best Buy had three NES controllers out. Price tag and all. The POS wouldn't allow the sale, though. However, since I'm there entirely too much, the store pick-up gal put my name on it and hid it behind the line. So, uh, YMMV?

Of course these get released when I’m working a 24 hour shift. Hopefully I’ll find one Saturday morning.

Found a rack full of NES controllers at Best Buy today.  Only to be shut down at the register.  :wall:

Probably common knowledge, but SNES Classic controllers work w/ the NES Classic. Same w/ the NES Classic controllers on SNES Classic.

I just got an snes and plan on getting the nes tomorrow. I suppose it makes sense, but I did not know that. Thank you! No rush for a second nes controller if I dont see one readily available.

Ya, I don't plan on buying a 2nd NES Controller because of this.

And both are easily hackable.

It’s available now, just not for in store pickup. If I do get one I’ll just swing by Gamestop or something first then go to Best Buy. I honestly don’t know that I’d play it much with the switch online service having some of them in a couple months.

I went to Walmart at midnight. Waited around in electronics like an idiot for 10 minutes before flagging down an assistant manager who checked and found out they were selling units at checkout 14. Took a stroll down that way (there was no one else waiting in electronics) and stood behind three dude-bros who were waiting in line. I watched, one by one, as the girl at the register materialized an NES Classic (the first time I had ever seen one in person) and sold them to each gentleman in turn, without ever exchanging a word. It was surreal, almost like some sort of cult ritual. I kept looking around to see if anyone else noticed this, but it was just that strange twilight hour. Finally, it was my turn. I mustered a "hey" while she produced the glossy looking rectangular box from nowhere. Inserted my card, went through the whole song-and-dance, then walked out the store, almost as in a dream. I clutched the Prize close to me on my way back to the parking lot, expecting at any second to be accosted by an undesirable. I made it back to my ride in one piece. No pomp or fanfare. And with that, my two-year journey had come to an end.

Walmart doesn't know if they have any until they check the security cage.

 

BestBuy has NO line.

 

May check back with both and see later.

Target by me still had “plenty” at noon. There was no signage or products on display. Everything was in back, just had to ask an electronics worker for it.

I guess I missed something- why is everyone here so interested in getting an extra controller?  Do a bunch of games that come with the NES Classic feature 2-player multiplayer?  Or is the cord on the standalone controller longer than the one that comes with the system?
