Best Buy

Like other retailers, Best Buy will be restocking the NES Classic Edition this Friday. The retailer shared its plans today about how it will be approaching the event.

Best Buy indicates that it won’t be taking pre-orders. The NES Classic Edition will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis when stores open Friday. Customers will be limited to purchasing one unit. If a line forms at a store before the doors open, Best Buy will use the same ticketing process from Black Friday.

It sounds like Best Buy will also have some inventory online. When the NES Classic Edition goes up, we’ll be sure to let you know.


Update: Pre-orders open on Amazon.

Original: Starlink: Battle for Atlas is the latest game that will require an extra download on Switch. Even if you purchase the game physically, you’ll need 15GB of free space.

Pre-orders for Starlink: Battle for Atlas are starting to go live. You can reserve it on Best Buy and GameStop.
