SNES Classic Pre-Orders Live at GameStop, In-Person Only

snes 1

In case you missed the madness, SNES Classic Edition pre-orders went live on Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target, and they all sold out in under a minute. All is not lost, though. If you have the time to spare, head down to your local GameStop right now! Pre-orders are live there for in-store customers, and all you have to do is put down $25.

If I were you, I would do this immediately. These are going to sell out incredibly fast, but at least you have a chance if you know a GameStop that doesn't get a ton of foot traffic. Also, many people are in school or at work right now. If you can take a lunch break, do it. Do it fast!

If you fail to secure one right away, 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. We'll have another link going live in a few hours that should give you one more chance to snag one of these before you really need to panic.

  • The Super NES Classic Edition system has the original look and feel of the '90s home console, only smaller. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games!

Good luck everyone.
