No, not for HUGELY inflated eBay prices, but it's original RRP.

I would suggest you just wait for retailers to restock from Nintendo. Nintendo has already confirmed shops will be getting new stock for the foreseeable future. No need to pay a scalper just to get it a little quicker.

Waiting. Just being a fan of most things Nintendo I'm worried (for myself) I may not hold out and end up profiting some vulture scalper who likely ordered 10+ units for this very reason. Real gamers/fans getting shafted, as per.

I'll keep my eyes peeled. Kicking myself now for not pre-ordering one (not TEN) when I had the chance.

tbh if your a fan of the NES games two usb NES controllers and a Raspberry Pi would be a lot better.

I mean it's not even got Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Metal Gear, most of the Mega Man games, Dragon Quest series, Bionic Commando, Final Fantasy II and III, Battletoads or numerous other great NES games.

Check Smyths, GAME and others in store or.. just wait for Nintendo to restock. When it happens the scalpers will be doomed.

Will do. Just hope it's pre-Christmas is all. Kills me numerous outlets have clearly allowed customers to orders a dozen or so NES Mini's, most (if not all) for scalping reasons alone, while us gamers get left out in the cold as usual.

Smyths website says its expecting stock online and In stores between 21-28 November

Yes, but only for people who pre-ordered previously I believe.

December is when they will come back in stock.

While I agree it's missing some iconic NES games, most (if not all) will be to do with licencing reasons. I do think however Gargoyles Quest 2 and Castlevania 3 were an oversight.

Sadly they'll always be scalpers if dumb people keep buying from them at inflated prices,someone paid £130 for one! Stock is expected in early December.i managed to get one delivered on the 12th but not opened it cos it's for Christmas.

I don't say dumb, but yes, it only exasperates the issue. Which outlets are best positioned for stock incoming do you know?

Still searching...

Gotta go for the obvious. Nintendo Store.

Set an alert on the Mini NES links and when there's an update (say, available for purchase) you'll be notified.
