Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who found an snes classic today?

Just came back. I got one in best buy, got there at 9:30 am, and was the 159 person to get a ticket. There are probably 200-300 snes classic on that best buy. Amazing there were people in line at midnight, i just woke up today crossed the border and drove there, and got it without any trouble. My friend got there at night and was the one who told me i could still get one earlier on.

Now to wait for the nes classic

I mean...most stores didnt even open until this morning so it's not too hard to find one yet.

You in Canada right?

Everything is open here early In merica. Gamestop is later but they had a midnight launch. 

No. Define early? Because Best Buy doesn't open until 10 and when I made this thread, I had just gotten a ticket. That store had about 30 more when I left around 10:15. Most people in this thread don't seem to have had a problem finding them either. Not sure why your store seemed to get so much less than everyone else. 🙄



My preorder is waiting for me. I just need to pick it up tomorrow.

Walmart Sucks!

I live in a 45k person suburb that is ~30min drive away from a 5MM person city. My town has a Walmart that is generaly quite easy to buy launch/black friday stuff. Though, the typical employee and management in Walmart leaves a lot to be desired. But I very, very rarely ever go to Walmart (a few times a year), so I just deal with it for these types of launches.

Well, I went to my Walmart at ~23:15 and found out they were receiving 28 units with a line of 15 people, myself included. I thought how awesome that was until I realized that they were allowing 2 per person. THen I was like, damn I'm likely going to miss out. Though I was hoping that many would just be buying one and it would still be ok. Come to find out "people" was literal. A family in front of me bought 8 because they had a mom, dad, and 2 very little children. WTF. I complained that this was not the intent of "2 per person" and they should only be allowed 4 (which would mean I would get one) but apparently the manager had already approved that bullshit. 

So I left the store with only a brownie.

Target is Awesome!!

This morning, I dropped off my son at school and decided that I'd hit up the nearby Target as I needed to buy a new belt anyways and it was right at open. They opened at 8:00 and I arrived at about 8:10. Found out they received 86 but there was a long line. I figured well, I'll go ahead and get in line to see how it goes. As I was walking to the back of the line an employee was handing out tickets, sure enough I got the last available ticket!

The best part of this and thre reason why Target is far superior Walmart (though there are too many to list) is that their much higher educated employees and management had the foresight to put a hard limit of "1 per adult" and pass out tickets before hand. This is how you handle high scalper items. I was super impressed and even if I had not gotten a ticket, I would have been ok with this process.

 

So tonight when I'm off work, I will get my SNES love on. :)

Maybe Spurge was right. Seems like a lot of Walmarts were short on supply 



I was 40th in line at my local Best Buy and managed to get one. I'm super pumped. First thing I did when I got home and hooked it up was to force my sister to play Super Mario World with me.



I'm the result of someone exclusively playing Final Fantasy XI from the PS2 release till 2010, and only stopping for small bouts of catch up.

Got very lucky after two failed attempts (Did not want to wait in line, and Bestbuy online sold out super fast like 20 seconds). Amazon is my hero.
