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.

Amazon has started taking pre-orders for the New 3DS XL Samus Edition. If you’re interested, you can reserve the system here. It launches alongside Metroid: Samus Returns on September 15.

A bizarre discount has popped up over on Amazon. You can grab a Wii U code for PokePark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure at a significant discount. It’s sold for $20 on the eShop, but is currently $6 on Amazon. That’s $14 in savings.

We have to assume that this is a price error, but Amazon will honor it. You can place an order here.

The NES Classic Edition is back at Amazon – sort of. For those in select cities, the retailer is selling the system for the original $60 price point at its Treasure Truck daily-deals program.

Treasure Trucks can be found in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Customers can place orders for the NES Classic Edition through the Amazon app and schedule a pick up time at a Treasure Truck. If you happen to be located in one of these cities, you can take advantage between 11 AM and 5 PM local time, or until product sells out.
