SNES

Postby hiker » Mon Jun 26, 2017 8:27 pm

So.. I missed out completely on the NES (as many of us did)... so I'm saying it now.. if anyone can snag an extra SNES at any point for me, please do! I will, of course, pay for shipping and whatnot.

Thanks. :)

I'll be watching for a few for both work and personal reasons! I did call my local Gamestop and asked if I could be put on a list for preorders and he said yes. No idea what that actually means but at least I'm on the list! :D

I have been looking for one of these and I don't want to pay $300 on other social media sites.

We saw it up tonight on Walmart.com too but it was listed as out of stock within 10 minutes and then shortly after that was gone from the site altogether. Was finally able to snag one though.

So I was able to order one of the SNES through Walmart.com and was very happy :D ... until today when I got this email :cry: :



Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition. As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall.

Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake.

In regards to the cancellation of this item, if you paid by credit card, your card has not been charged. Any authorization holds placed on your account will automatically expire in accordance with the card issuer's policy. If you paid through PayPal or with a gift card, your payment will be refunded when the order is cancelled.

The official launch date for this item is 9/29, please check the product page on Walmart.com prior to that date for any updates.

I do hope you’ll give us another chance to earn back your business.

Warm regards,
Deserie Dulaney
Sr. Director Customer Care
Walmart.com

I got the same email, and then an hour later I got one saying my order was cancelled because my payment was declined. What a terrible way for Walmart to handle this mess.

I agree and still wonder why they couldn't just honor the pre-orders.

Ok so I am late to the party on this one. Will this be available for preorder anywhere or is it just a boxing match on Sept 28? I got the NES Classic when it came out, thanks to SoDangPretty (you rock girl) and would love to have one of these as well.

BTW if you're bored, look them up on Amazon, then read the comments on it. Hilarious!

There are supposed to be pre-orders available at the end of this month. No date was given as of yet.

Just so you know, preorders went live last night briefly and again this afternoon. So they will be off and on until they are officially for sale.


If anyone can grab extras for people on the forums, that'd be awesome... and if no one wants any extras you get, I'll take them.. (No, I don't resell them.) :)

Had it in my cart but was gone by the time I logged in to pay with Paypal. So make sure you have payment methods saved and ready. :)
