​It's RRP and a stock alert. Cause idiots are buying something on ebay at twice the price or cause CEX etc are trying to rip people off with inflated prices does not make RRP a deal. Sorry.

Barnsley Cortonwood are showing low stock but click and collect available if it helps anyone

heat op for alert. I was too late for this but will keep an eye. Thanks for posting!

Game in Sutton Coldfield said they are expecting delivery soon too. Must be deliveries nationwide soon. Be patient... I also can't wait for the SNES version - A patent was applied for on the 5th Dec by Nintendo for a SNES controller.

Appreciate the post. RRP yes but oos constantly so... thanks again.

Glasgow is showing as in stock as well.

Awesome. Got one at last - now time to hack it

​is it easy and what games can you get?

£49.99 is a recommended retail price only, if these have been selling elsewhere for over £100 for months now I say its a good deal,if someone was selling De Lorean Back to the future lego sets for £40 I would call it a brilliant deal even though the retail was way lower when available.
Thanks op for posting ignore the naysayers.heat.

​You can essentially double the amount of games on it (as things stand). No one is entirely sure how much storage there is in them as it's not as simple as just connecting it to a PC and using it as a flash drive.

60 games is the vast majority of the best games on the system so is plenty. A quick Google will tell you all you need to know.

gone quick i did manage to get an order in fingers crossed

Ordered at Glasgow not long after this deal went live and just got sent a cancellation e-mail as they're out of stock.

Cheers, Smyths, now I've got your £50 pending stuck on my card until it's over with.

My local smyths just say "Estimated in stock between 26th - 29th of January". So I guess that's a maybe?

for anyone who purchased one so far, is it just a few hour novelty or do you keep coming back to it.

​It will depend on whether you're already into classic Nintendo games. Most of them are difficult and frustrating and some of them people will have played to death over the years.

I bought this to allow me to sell my Nintendo collection, which is gathering dust on my shelf as the NES is temperamental, as are the games. It also allows me to play games which I can't be bothered to shell out massive money for just to play for an hour and finish.

Whether you come back to it will depend on a number of pre-existing factors. Do you like retro games? Have you any fondness for the titles that come pre-packaged? Do you like tough but short games?

Worth remembering that these games would cost £150 on Virtual Console alone (already ignoring Rasberry Pi crowd).

​Stopped reading at "coz"

Was gonna get one of these, but then cos the supply was so bad just got a pi instead and now have all nes games rather than 30 of them.

Thanks OP.Managed to get one.

good price since its the rrp but I'll stick with my raspberry pi heat added for those that want an easy deal

Hope everyone gets one, its a lovely little machine. For those that dont, i wouldnt pay over the odds, its worth about £50 max with the selection of games on offer.

Longton nr Stoke have a few remaining



​yeh just seen that

No stock in my store

Tried calling the Mk store and no answer also the website won't let me 'click & collect' out of stock at Nintendos website too! Been trying to get one for months!

Showing a lack of understanding both RRP and the English language in a single post... Nice one :-P

For the vast majority of products, consumers determine the true value by what they are willing to pay, and that market value is all that matters. Otherwise discounts on RRP offered by retailers such as Sports Direct would be hot deals every day of the week.

"Coz" is an informal abbreviation recognised by the Oxford dictionary. "Cause" as you like to put it, is the wrong word, and makes no sense. It does however, "cause" you to come across a little hypocritical.

Gutted it's oos! Have been trying to get one of these for weeks!:(

While I still disagree with you on RRP and the rip off merchants charging double the actual worth of this item solely due to a low supply I will humbly stand corrected on my use of the English language.

This forum is full of pompous petty ****! Like if you agree!

I totally agree about the rip-off merchants doubling the price, no question. But, I think that's slightly different, and soemthing like this can be a good deal at the same time. I paid £55 plus delivery for one of these, and was quite happy with that.

Or, maybe the majority of comments that come accross that way to some, were actually meant tongue in cheek or in a manner of jest. IDK ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
