    Maybe. Let's see if they learned their lesson from the nes classic.

    The signs are looking good. They released a statement saying the stock for the SNES classic will be "significantly higher" then for the NES classic...just depends on what Nintendo think "significant" is, might be 2

    I sure hope so. If you hype a system with the lineup it has and an unreleased starfox, the shitstorm will be very real if they can't get one.

    Have they shown how the controllers connect yet? Because I saw on the official Nintendo page that the Classic Controllers will work on it but don't give an explanation.

    wasn't fussed about the NES Classic, but damn did I just preorder the SNES Classic from the Nintendo UK store. FFVI, Earthbound and Zelda all on one cute little thingy (the PAL SNES is so pretty).. Don't really care that my RetroPi setup can do all of that.. its so cute!

    Why wait? Go to Google and type in "StarFox 2 rom" and see what happens.

    Pre-orders for the SNES mini SOLD OUT IN 25MINS here in the UK....i was right, Nintendo does think "significantly more stock" means 2 FFS! They're already selling (a pre-order) for 200-300 on ebay...i'm starting to think this might not be worth it. I retract my earlier statement of "Nintendo wins 2017", i was naive.

    What I think they meant was that there would be a lot more shipments throughout the year. Until the end of their fiscal year. Whenever that is.

    Probably. It's killed my excitement for the thing now, knowing it's going to be the same as the NES mini. I'm just going to put the money toward a Switch like my original plan and waste my tube trips to work playing Minecraft.

    I have every notification set for all the outlets it is being sold once the pre-orders go live for those sites. I only paid an extra twenty bucks for the NES, I'll be sure to get my hands on one of these for sure. I just cannot help myself.

    I was able to snag a NES mini from Best Buy's site a few months after street date, for face value. I presume a similar thing could happen for this SNES thing, but who knows. I'd really like to get one so my NES mini has a buddy, but I feel like there's so few games on this and just about all of them are likely contenders for the inevitable VC on the Switch. Star Fox 2 will probably remain an "exclusive" for a while, but they'd be silly to not eventually make it available elsewhere.

    Walmart has SNES classic up for pre order right now... Probably won't last long.

    Not sure what it said when you posted this, but the link doesn't look like a clear pre-order right now.

    Also, fuck Walmart in this regard. They're the ones who overstocked the NES Classic and then sold a boatload to the first scalper who showed up to the store... There's some guy who still has tons of them, and he's the one "controlling" the price. Thanks Walmart.

    Yeah, it was legit. I got a pre-order in. Strangely enough, they already charged my credit card even. I guess I should probably just expect it to get canceled in the next couple months :/

    Eh, Best Buy does the whole "charge your card to make sure there's money" once or twice a week until it actually ships. Which sucks if you have a debit card because money is leaving your account randomly and you might have bills to pay.
