Re: BBYBilly: When will NES Classic be available to pre order?

Oh yeah... you're right.  I didn't see the "Interworks" brand... my bad...

Re: BBYBilly: When will NES Classic be available to pre order?

I'm really excited for this, but only because I can't wait to tear it apart Smiley Wink

It's the Hardware, not the games I'm interested in. Great Game library though!

Better than most retro consoles.

 

Hoping there are no limits, I'd like to grab some as gifts too.

Re: BBYBilly: When will NES Classic be available to pre order?

Anxiously waiting for this. We're hoping for 2 systems. One for kids and one for us bigger kids. I'm so excited for the games list. I haven't played Dr Mario since my first Gameboy. My son is pumped for Zelda. We have an original system which we've kept an old tv specifically for. It's very temperamental. I need this so I can play on my big screen and I don't have to fiddle with the cartridges or blow on it.

Any news about this? The system is scheduled to launch in 2 weeks and usually pre-orders should already be up (or close) for this. 

 

Thank you

I was at EB this morning and they said they are not doing pre-orders or a midnight release. Will be selling them when their store opens on November 11. Also, **competitor** in the U.S. tweeted that they are not doing preorders. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/10/gamestop_wont_offer_pre-orders_for_the_nes_classic_edition

I was told the same thing a few weeks ago and that Nintendo is NOT ALLOWING stores to take pre-orders. That gives me a knot in my stomach and makes me think stock is going to be very limited and my local BB store doesn't have the best of stock of anything really Smiley Sad

I just spoke with the gaming team and nothing is planned at this time, but they assured me that the forum would be the first know if anything changes Smiley Happy

Re: BBYBilly: When will NES Classic be available to pre order?

Stopped into my local (Fredericton, NB) Best Buy yesterday and asked about this.  A little concerning that neither of the people I spoke with (one in the gaming area one at customer service) didn't even know what I was talking about.

Re: BBYBilly: When will NES Classic be available to pre order?

@BBYBilly, I'm just clarifying some of the things I've heard in this thread.

- Releases on Nov. 11 in North America

- No midnight release: releases when the store opens

- No pre-orders

- No news from Nintendo, despite release being 13 days away

Hopefully we hear something very soon!
