MY LOCAL EB GAMES IS EXPECTING 3 (THREE) UNITS TO COME IN TODAY (DECEMBER 9TH). I'M STANDING IN THE STORE WAITING FOR THE SHIPMENT TO COME IN! CALL YOUR LOCAL EB GAMES IF YOU'RE IN CANADA OR GET IN THERE NOW!!!


Original post:

I just missed one while waiting in line. The last one was sold out 3 people ahead of me! Shoot!

If a Canadian out west can find one that's perfect but American will work too! I'll pay the shipping!

Post here or PM and we'll figure out a price that makes us both happy.

Thanks!








Update: I got one!!



And for those who will say "Ya right Chris! I bet it's an empty box..."



Woohoo!!!!!

Lol get your own thread!



Apparently they'll be intermittently sending out new consoles throughout the next few months. If I get to the store earlier I'm sure I'll get one. Its not even more me it's a gag gift for Christmas so worst case scenario they get it for their birthday or something haha.

Dude, I'm pissed about this as well.  Amazon was supposed to be selling them come 5pm yesterday, and they were sold out before I or my coworker here could get one.  It's unbelievable--and they didn't do a presale!

Good luck getting one.  People are selling them on Ebay for like $250.  There's no way in hell I'm paying that.  Gonna wait.

$250? Pfff! The cheapest one I saw locally was $370 USD ($500 CAD).

@Chris!, If I find a store that has one in stock locally I'll pick it up and send you a PM. However, with the lack of consoles in stock I'm thinking you'll probably find one on your own before I'm able to find one.  Wink

Haha if I find two I'll gladly sell the other to someone else! Thanks!

Haha same here. Just nope. I'd do $100CAD just to know I have one for sure but nah $250US is so beyond what I would pay for this. You can literally do everything on an emulator or on a wii but it doesn't look like a NES or have the controller. The person I'm buying it for would be pissed if they found out I spent like $300 on this haha. "Why didn't you just buy a new PS4!?".

Amazon sold out instantly. That was bs lol. I'm so annoyed I didn't get to EB games like 5 or 10 minutes earlier. Wish I knew someone out west that didn't sleep in and could have gone to a local Walmart or something haha. So many stores didn't even get their orders in. Nintendo is really holding back their stock to create hype I guess.

Man, Chris!, I really want one--I'm an old school gamer, and I don't have any console currently.  I really want to play those 30 games that I haven't played in years.  I think $60 is a freaking steal for the system, and I'm not surprised in the least that they sold out.  They just planned this thing poorly.

I'll probably end up buying a used NES and have to blow on the goddamn cartridges.  The 1980s all over again.  Tongue

I won't poop on your thread no more.

I've never heard of that app. All I can find is guides on google play on how to buy/sell. Is it only for ios or something? I'll have to check out other areas. Ebay is only for the people that don't want to look around I guess. Well that and the people trying to make a quick buck.

There are tons of the original NES on eBay. I was really surprised. The games are really expensive though so this NES Classic edition would really be the best bang for your buck.

Jesus christ whatever you do don't stick a Kleenex or a q-tip in one of those cartridges or your dad will have a fit Wink.

Apparently that doesn't help anything, it must be the taking it out and putting it back in.

I sold my snes 6 months back, they are cheaper but still i dont know what the fuck i was thinking.

Total forgot about the NES release until yesterday.  Saw someone trying to flip it at $400... Any idea when they are going to be back in stock?

I haven't heard anything else at this point. I'll keep this thread up to date if I hear anything else.

Here are the places I tried that did have them but we're sold out:

EB Games
Amazon (for about 2.2 seconds)
Walmart
The source (online only apparently. Maybe my local store just didn't get any)

So those are the places I would call to ask if / when they are getting more stock.

You could hit a pawn shop for the real old ones.

But if you can wait a month,these will be mass produced for Christmas now that they realize the demand.

lol how are these going for so much?

I have a friend that has 100 real nintendos.

Should I buy them off him and start unloading them online or is it just these 'new' ones that are worth anything?

Yeah, I read on the Amazon site that they plan on restocking within weeks.  As to how many weeks, that's anyone's guess.  I've played those games to death as a kid, so there's no rush for me to get one of those systems, but they just did a poor job of estimating demand.  I'm patient.

Re: NES.  Those pins that connected the game cartridge to the system used to get corroded and dusty and whatnot.  Am I the only old fart around here who remembers this?

I tried Kijiji. It seems to be bigger in Canada. I don't know anyone that uses Craig's list to be honest. I think it's an American thing (maybe I'm wrong?). I'm just sort of sitting tight to see if any local stores or online places get them back in stock. Only if I'm desperate will I end up paying maybe $120 CAD. I couldn't justify throwing away more money than that. It's just kind of a nostalgic gag gift.

No and I've given up the quest for now.  I will wait until Nintendo comes to its senses and starts mass producing them like they should have done from the get go.  I don't need to buy them for gifts or anything. 

Have you checked Nintendo's website?  They may post updates.
