I think everyone is aware of this by now, it's commented on at least once in every SNES related thread.

Look you don't get it, and that's fine. Why go to a post about it then just to moan at people who do want it? You think you're saving anyone? You think anybody looking at this thread went "I had no idea you could play old games emulated on another system! Thank God for that chap he just saved me $80!"

You can play snes games emulated on a smart phone. I'll telegraph it as you don't seem to understand. Its not just about playing the games its the physical product, its the Nintendo badge, its the controller, the packaging, the nostalgia and a hundred other differing reasons which are personal to people. Just because you don't understand somethings appeal doesn't make those who do foolish, just different to you. Embrace don't hate the difference

Yeah, not convinced that counts as a preorder if you are paying up front. more of a prepurchase.
fanks ordered 10...then another 10
Pocketing all the cash upfront. That'll subsidise the £10 off compared to Amazon over a few months. Cheeky beggars!

Probably from all the multiple orders placed. They took over a week to make it available but always had it listed. Reckon they were sorting through and cancelling them all.

yep, i think your right to tell people to be quick. Interesting to see how quick the stock does go.
That's 1 to keep and 1 to sell.

Better than changing £79.99 upfront .... They know people would still pay it
Finally! Missed out on the NES mini last time round, was almost resigned to building a Pi setup...

Thanks OP
THANK YOU!!
Good on Argos for charging the proper price for this, heated!
Cheers just ordered it.
got one. out of interest, had a look on ebay over the weekend, couldn't see a single listing for these. wonder if ebay have put a ban on listings until its actually released
Cancelled tesco as they wouldn’t change the delivery address. They’ll have some more soon. Ordered here and saved £10
do argos charge money at dispatch or order?
My other half told me something interesting the other week

Argos are making interest for the next 2 3 months from people who do these pre orders / pre purchases

So we all are generating more money for argos with their pre purchase method
