Sorry guys, It must've been a few orders that got cancelled by the looks of it

Still in stock. Just ordered one

I just bought one.

Says it's 'In Stock' for me

Edit: Now out of stock
Edited by: "Dsync" 28th Sep

Yikes!!! Less than 5 minutes and it was gone! These things are going to be as rare as the NES Mini. The run up to Christmas is going to be crazy if you haven't already got one. Restock are gonna fly out as well. I knew Nintendo couldn't deliver, they made the same claims with the Switch.

Banned

Hopefully more stock tomorrow onwards

I feel Nintendo intentionally don't deliver to create hype. The problem is they're handing over millions in profit to scalpers and people who want to buy one and keep it boxed on a shelf.

Just ordered one, keeps going in and out of stock.

Thank you for the heads up I was finally able to get one.

Yeah I agree about the hype. Everyone wants what they can't get!

These will not be as rare as the NES ones were. Wait until after Xmas and they'll be everywhere, as will the next batch of NES ones.

no apology required,just the cynical retailers having everyone perform like circus seals,drip feeding supply to keep people on their website to hopefully buy something else,and it does work.

They will be harder to get, the mini Nes was easy to preorder and is pretty crap compared to the SNES. Come xmas the snes will be like rocking horse poo. The press release about increased production was just to try and stop the secondary market, of course they will produce more of the SNES and for longer because the demand will be much higher, will they keep up with demand? Has Nintendo ever?

There's going to be another NES batch?

Yep. But how many, we don't know. Probably a very small amount from past history. I posted a deal yesterday for the controller, which came back in stock direct at Amazon. So look out for it.

You're welcome to mine for £129

I pre ordered one back in June from Smyths for store collection but not heard a thing yet. Anyone else in the same situation

Just why are these so popular? As far as I can see it has 21 retro games and is pretty small...I have 10 times as many retro games as this on my fire tv box for nothing?!

...bizarre what the youngsters will buy these days

just got mine delivered from Smyths (pre ordered at £69.99). My evening sorted

They're open at midnight for a fifa launch but same here, heard nothing. Don't want to turn up if it's fifa only and snes's aren't available until 2moz.

Does anyone know how long Smyths keep pre-orders for? Got one pre-ordered but cant pick it up till Saturday

I am. My friend who ordered after me for Home delivery received theirs today.
I did email Smyths yesterday and was told I should get an email at end of business today which I haven’t. Hopefully first thing tomorrow we shall receive an email stating it’s ready for collection.

That is an interesting option, might give my store a bell and see if I can pick it up tonight; I haven't been to a midnight launch for over a decade!
