Nintendo's SNES Classic Edition Sells Out Instantly

As Nintendo Preps SNES Relaunch, A Look Back At The System's Top 10 Bestsellers

"Nintendo will ship more units of the system on launch day in the USA than were shipped of the NES Classic Edition system all previous year", reads a line in press releases that Nintendo issued Thursday morning and earlier this month.

Super Nintendo Edition is available to pre-order now on the GAME website.

SNES Classic also has a new Star Fox 2. Happy hunting to all the Nintendo heads out there! I know there are die hard collectors out there who would seriously give their left foot for the classic system, but most gamers would probably be fine with just downloading each game individually on their Switch. To my great surprise, there were ninety people in line, and the employee was still handing out tickets for the 120 units they had available to sell today. However, the Treasure Trucks in some of those cities are already sold out of the SNES Classic. It quickly sold out while becoming one of the hottest holiday gifts.

I argued that Nintendo was either underhanded or incompetent with the launch of the NES Classic, and I think that argument still holds up.

It won't be easy to find SNES Classic Edition, but even in an increasingly e-commerce-focused world, a few brick-and-mortar stops at seem like your best bet.

ThinkGeek might not be the first place you think of when purchasing a console, but the firm does offer them.

Technically the full name of it is the "Nintendo Classic Mini Super Nintendo Entertainment System" but we're calling it the SNES Classic Mini for short.

This is all following Nintendo's claims it won't have the same problem as it did with the NES Classic before discontinuing it. We're getting more very soon.

Big W have advertised the SNES Classic Mini in this week's catalogue which means they'll have it in stores on Saturday. Toys "R" Us will also only be selling the Super NES Classic Edition consoles in stores - not online - at this time.
