So dumb. Woke up at like 3AM this morning and randomly checked my phone. Saw a message that it showed up on Best Buy but by that time it was gone already. I had notifications for both there and Amazon and never got anything either. lol selling out in minutes in the middle of the night. f*** off Nintendo.

I signed up for notifications on every single site and received zero as well. Seems odd, like maybe they were all asked to intentionally not send them or something.

Yeah, it's a love/hate relationship at this point. Nintendo just continues to piss off their loyal fans. Why not have pre-orders go live when people who actually want the console can get a chance to nab one? Instead, do it in the middle of the night while the scalpers are out. Bunch of clowns.

In terms of Amazon US, they didn't use the damn page that already existed.

They made a whole separate page.

I had a notification set for the original page.

Amazon is notorious for doing that. Still haven't gotten an Xbox One X email nor SNES Classic Edition email.

Yea it gets too frustrating I gave up on the NES Classic. Hopefully they're are actually producing a lot this time like they say they are.

People are lining up for it. I so love online ordering.

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/loca...c-new-york-line-police-launch--448536823.html

"
Hours before the official launch of Nintendo’s SNES Classic, around two hundred fans were lined up outside of the Nintendo store in New York City, with excitement momentarily boiling over to the point police had to be phoned.

At 3:30 p.m., the line stretched down two blocks, starting at 48th Street and Sixth Avenue. Some people had waited in line for more than 24 hours, including Queens native Brandon Paul, whose childhood memories made it worth it.

Nintendo once again being stupid. I have my mini NES collecting dust so no motivation for a companion unless it falls in my lap.

Yea I'm not going out of my way to get one of these. NES I got lucky when it popped up on Amazon later on launch day. Seems like pre-orders for this were a mess as well with bots and scalpers grabbing all of them within a couple minutes. Wasn't going to stand in line for it either. If I see it available online I'll grab one but otherwise meh. My original SNES still works so I can play that if I really want to.

I heard that Amazon screwed up royally? They’ve been so bad with video game preorders.
Makes me worried for my Xbox One X preorder.

Luckily i ordered my SNES via Best Buy.

Yea I've been hearing no shipping notifications yet, but people seeing notifications of some Treasure Truck (???) in big cities selling the console.

I'm going to wait for the clone version again. I bought a nes mini clone with 600 games, good quality 1080p hdmi for $30 shipped.

I refuse to support Nintendo with their shortages strategy. I'd rather support some random guy.
