YEEESSS got one! Thank you, you wonderful poster you.

Now if they'd just dispatch the 2nd controller I ordered over a week ago I'd be all set.

Ordered, thanks.

cash converters are selling the original nes £155 lol

Just ordered myself, thought it was suspicious the advent calendar was taking a while to update. Hope it comes in time for Christmas.

Stock will be despatched to you as soon as we receive it. so not really in stock

Wish they had the Classic Controller back in stock, won't bite on another not into charging insane amounts on Ebay :P

Well, looks like we did it guys, 8 minutes and its OOS.

Maybe just a glitch, ive noticed it happen a couple of times with this calendar that it comes and goes within a few minutes

Even if not today might not be long i ordered the pokemon go other day on the calendar on the 12th and that was dispatched yesterday,

already out of stock. Lucky I got the stock alert. Anyone know where I can buy another controller for it?

Yep, that's right. It's just sitting there as "processing" for me.

If it helps the pain, Amazon had December 18-20 as the date of a mass stock plus by the end of the year the shortage should too be settled.

GOT ONE!


Let's see if they dispatch the thing before celebrating.

No idea why Nintendo always play this false hype for demand card by not producing enough hardware.
I know people want this but people are only talking about it so much because they can't get one!
It's hardly a groundbreaking invention!

Finally got one after giving my original pre-order to someone who deserved it more than me X)

Managed to order one this time thanks OP

It creates hype and demand but after they produce it in masses the prices will drop considerably. It happened with the amiibos and the GameCube adapter for WiiU and the same will apply for this.

still waiting for my Pokemon go plus from black Friday... ghost stock

managed to order one, thank god for stock alerts, saying it'll be dispatched today, anyone know how long they usually take to deliver once dispatched?

It's usually within 2 days once sent. Managed to grab the Wolf Link Amiibo earlier this week and it was with me the following day.

I think it is a horrible practice too. A company the size of Nintendo could easily produce these en masse, yet simply chose not to meaning people who really want it (e.g. pressured parents etc) end up paying several times it's price for one e.g. on eBay.

Nintendo should really be taken to task about this kind of thing but being Nintendo they can do nothing wrong and seem to get a free pass for just about anything, yet if Sony or Microsoft tried similar tactics they would probably be chased out of the industry.

I think Nintendo produce great games for sure but I also think they are an extremely aggressive profits hungry business and yes they all are to varying extents but the hard line they take with their fans e.g. fan games, you tube broadcasting etc is much worse than just about any other hardware manufacturer or developer out there....

missed out after spending every day looking on there & decided to get some presents wrapped today while kids are at school

I pre ordered one on Zavvi back in July, the other week I got an email from them finally cancelling my order!
They all do this to create mass buying once its finally released to create a buzz and sell up in one big hit!
So they look great to there share holders and they can all go around patting each others asses/egos etc!
F==k Zavvi & Nintendo! And all the others who let you down!
I bought a Raspberry pi 3 kit off amazon for £39 a wireless xbox 360 lookly like pad £15 and a 128gb sd card £25 and will not look back!
Any one wants pointing in the right direction, its that one!

I did the exact same. The email dropped as I was already in them. Bought within 2 minutes maximum. Hope some of you got lucky. I'm getting sharp pain to the temple right now, having flashbacks to a certain GameCube controller adapter fiasco... (_;)
