    Trying to get the NES mini is extremely hard at the moment as Nintendo are doing what Nintendo does and releases things in REALLY small quantities in the hope to drive up demand.

    Expect more to come soon.

    don't think so saw it flying off the shelves over xmas

    i bought 2 for my kids for Christmas but they aren't as good as I expected

    Ahh ok.. Thanks guys, ive kinda give up tbh lol, surprisingly managed to get a vr easier than this, bought the megadrive by at games yeaterday and love it, also worked out putting the console flat on the stand sorted the controller issues

    I would wait and see if they do the snes apparently they are making one due to the demand for the nes classic mini

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it all being manipulated in order to have people throwing money at the upcoming Switch when pre-orders begin, in fear of missing out. Nothing surprises me in big business.

    Maybe they are doing a new HW Revision that blocks the current hack, more likely cheeky tesco

    ​Unlikely since they knew it was going to happen his the message in the code, Nintendo never been great at blocking exploits (it earns them money) look at the wii and ds

    No you didn't. There were literally no units to see. It was out of stock online.

    There isn't many to be flooded with. In the US they sold 196K units in the whole of December. A massive country had only 196k units available. We'd have a fraction of that.

    Nintendo doing what they do best, moronic behaviour.

    Still, hopefully it will put people off buying what is an overpriced rom machine
