Super NES Classic Edition live on Walmart
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
Update: And she’s gone – lasted much longer than Walmart’s last round of pre-orders at least!
Walmart took pre-orders for the Super NES Classic Edition for an extremely brief period this week. Now, however, it’s available once again. You can pre-order it here.
What we will say is that Walmart seems to have more pre-orders this time. The last round lasted under a minute, so this is a somewhat good sign.
Amazon says SNES Classic Edition pre-orders may miss ship date, orders for multiple units reduced to one
Posted on 1 month ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 19 Comments | 0 Likes
Amazon appears to have hit a snag with pre-orders placed for the Super NES Classic Edition. In an email sent to customers, the retailer notes that it “recently learned that we may miss your delivery promise”. Units will still be sent out though, and the retailer is “working hard to ensure you get this item as soon as it is in stock.”
In other news, we’re hearing that Amazon is reducing orders for multiple Super NES Classic units reduced to one. Since no limit was placed originally, some customers placed orders for many systems – even dozens. This should hopefully give consumers another shot at snagging a Super NES Classic Edition at Amazon.
