I guess...My thought is if you just want to play the games?  Emulate.  I don't want to reward Nintendo for this behavior by giving them a preorder next time.

Gotta love being able to  hack your wii or wii U into an emulation machine and get it all ;)

I lucked out and got one a month ago when Gamestop got a shipment of 2. It was just luck of the draw that I was at the right store at the right time. It's a cool little machine and a sweet collector's piece. I swear, if they announce a SNES one, I'm preordering. Nintendo is like Uncle Scrooge when it comes to releasing stuff related their IP.

SNES Classic Edition.

FFIV and the other 2 DKC games would've been nice.

List of games looks amazing.  But not taking the bait this time!

It's got

mother fucking

Mario RPG on it.


I mean it's just nice to have Nintendo actually acknowledge that it exists, is all.

More importantly, it's got Star Fox and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, neither of which is available on any of Nintendo's virtual console platforms.    And it'll be great getting to finally play Star Fox 2.

Is there going to be a pre-order opportunity? I got burned on NES Classic and never had an opportunity to buy one at a decent price.

I took the bait because, surely, the same thing won't happen again...

...and it's happening again.  Screw 'em.

Fuck Shit Stack.



I don't understand nintendo's strategy. They release a product that everyone wants, so they release a very limited ammount of it and then stop producing it a few months later. How is that good business?

Who knows. Bullshit like that is why I'm not buying a Nintendo Switch. I did hear a lot of those retailers websites failed to send out notifications to a lot of people that indicated it that wanted to be notified. 

I also heard Toys R Us is refusing pre-orders, so there is still a long shot of some people getting them rather than breaking the bank through re-sellers. Least TRU can enforce a 1 per customer policy by doing this.

They're fixing it?  Maybe?

http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/09/12/nes-classic-returning-to-stores-snes-classic-stock-increased

So they're now saying that they will be releasing more SNES Classics than they had planned, and they will be RE-releasing the NES Classic sometime next summer.  What they are not saying is how many more that means...

I'm definitely not getting my hopes up.

I wish they would just say, "Go to this site and order one and we'll make enough to cover all of the orders...and a few extra, to boot."

Is that so hard?

I want them badly. But yeah I don't want to get my hopes up. For some reason Nintendo doesn't like to make money.

Wait... wtf? *confused*

WTF are they smoking at their NA HQ?

Needless to say, I'll give Toys R Us a look on the morning of the 29th but if there is too long a line then fuck it. 

I do have an itch to play ALTTP but my brother has our SNES (it's his by right as his birthday present).
