SNES Classic Preorders Today
This is Nintendo's official trailer for the SNES Classic, which shows off some of its save state and rewind features.
Nintendo has allowed preorders to go live today, August 22nd, 2017. According to some outlets, Amazon and Best Buy's preorders went live in the middle of the night, then sold out within an hour. What's weird is that I was up during the time they went live, but I never got an alert. It might be a glitch, like the Walmart situation, and the preorders will be available later today sometime. Either way, more stores, including Gamestop, Target, and Toys R Us are supposedly opening preorders later today sometime. And went I spoke to GameStop, they expected to have some systems available on launch day for those without preorders, if they were willing to stand in line.
As for me, I jerry-rigged some code that lets me reload the GameStop webpage every minute and will be monitoring it all day. Good luck out there!
LOL, Target preorders just went live. I managed to get one in my cart, but Target requires you to create an account to buy anything. By the time I did, their server was no longer responding. My guess is that so many bots were auto-preordering that their system failed. I tried many times, but within three minutes, the page has stated that Preorders are no longer available.
bots themselves seem to be having issues as the stock tracker didn’t even show up for the walmart listing, I was successful on my walmart order only because i believed the 1pm rumor gamestop’s been dead for a while. Walmart sold out in 30 secs, literally. I had my payment info ready because i did it 30 mins before. and literally hit it right when it turned 1 on my desktop, purchased it in about 4 seconds total and got confirmation, with any luck it’ll be good.
Gamestop “will be back soon. Thank you for your patience.”
I think it’s happening!
NEW RECORD for fastest online sell out gose to drum roll please………………..GAMESTOP.COM

by the way we confermed miyu and fay as official starfox characters cause of the announcment of starfox2 for the snes mini but, havn’t you knottest we’re missing some one. cough cough fara cough cough not officale cough cough excuse me.
I got a tip that you could get preorders at Gamestop by physically going there. By the time I went there, they had sold out. According to the employee, they only were allowed to take preorders for 10 units.
Went to the Gamestop near my place and managed to preorder it. I’m so happy I did it. Can’t wait to get it on September. ^^
In my country I was able to pre-order one months ago and now I only have to wait 1 more month.
I played Starfox 2 on the legit SNES before btw, it’s one of the final beta versions I think and it plays very nice on the original hardware even though it’s a repro cardridge
