    More like waiting 325692 years just to try to buy one in general.

    Epic :cool::cool:

    Unfortunately pre-orders are sold out everywhere - keeping an eye out to see if they will release more pre-order.

    I know they have 20 odd games built in but is there going to be a function that new games can be added or downloaded onto the console?

    This is a convenience product.... if it's not convenient to buy... then it loses its value.

    Nintendo is hoping the nes classic lightning will strike again. I think the nes classic experience will greatly hurt this product. These is no reason Nintendo can't stock these things. The "rarity" schtick has worn through to people I think

    Nintendo has said the preorders were... premature. The one I had was cancelled. They officially said the preorders will start later this month.

    Online preorders are all sold out, if you want one go to your local Gamestop right now to get a preorder, mine had several left.\

    Or pay inflated prices from people such as myself.

    Well this release went pretty good. From what I'm gathering from many gaming sites is there was a pretty good allocation in each area with one retailer getting a larger than normal shipment.

    In my area Walmart got 20, Best Buy got 200. If you were up in the morning you should have got one.

    Mine was delivered a few days ago but was on-call for work, so it's still unopened.

    I'm holding off getting one just in case Nintendo announces they're putting Star Fox 2 on Switch virtual console.

    Friday I found one at Target and got it for my husband for Christmas. I called my sister, and she was able to go to a Target near her and get one for her husband. Then, my mom was able to get one for my nephew. That was definitely a matter of right place at the right time.
