As I'm sure you all know, Super NES Classic Edition pre-orders went live in the early morning hours while we were all sleeping. Most of us missed out on those pre-orders. This morning we heard rumors that Walmart would be pushing its pre-orders live at 10AM PST / 12PM Central. Now we have a little more corroboration from industry insider Robert Bowling that pre-orders will go live at all major retailers at that time. To be clear, that's about half an hour from the time of writing. Here's what he said:

"SNES Classic pre-orders go live at 10am PT. Sign-in to the below stores and set-up a payment profile in advance. Prepare for battle." Prepare for battle indeed. If this turns out to be anything like the NES Classic Edition pre-order fiasco, then all of these puppies are going to be gone from all of these retailers within minutes. If I were you, I'd take this man's advice. Make sure you have your accounts set up on all of these sites ASAP. Make your accounts, input your payment options, and sort out your default shipping address.
If you fail to secure one right at noon, try not to freak out. These are going to get restocked off and on leading up to the official launch, and we have it on good authority that you'll get another chance a little later this afternoon to pre-order one of these little treasures. We'll have more information for you this afternoon, so stay tuned about that.
