If you've been looking everywhere for a SNES Classic Edition, and loathe to pay out $130 to a scalper, we have some great news for you. Right now you can find the SNES mini at Amazon but you need to act fast because the available stock continues to dwindle at a fast pace. Even though the stock was just replenished it has already seen a 37% claim rate at the time this article was written! To grab it fast, claim your very own right here!
If you're trying to get your hands on this thing, then you should probably stop reading immediately and go order yours while you still can. Every time we've seen this go live on Amazon, GameStop, ThinkGeek, Best Buy, or Walmart, it sells out within minutes. Nintendo promised that it would be ramping up production of the SNES Classic Edition for the holidays, which we assume it did, but that doesn't mean that demand has waned at all. This thing is still hot, and you'll be lucky to snag one.
If you don't manage to grab one online today, consider calling around to your local brick-and-mortar stores to see if they've replenished their stock. I've been seeing anecdotes reporting walking into Walmarts and Targets and seeing SNES minis on store shelves. If Nintendo did ramp up supply, and everyone continues to search online, you might have a good chance of scoring one if you're willing to drive down the street.
Keep the faith, retro game lovers. We know that Nintendo plans to continue producing the SNES Classic Edition as well as the NES Classic Edition into 2018, so if you don't unwrap one on Christmas morning, or get one for the gamer in your life, you'll have another chance in the coming weeks. We'll keep you updated with availability.
