We have to admit it, we're a tiny bit in love with the NES Classic Edition, and so far it seems to have been a smash hit for Nintendo with preorders filling up almost immediately. If you live in North America and missed out on a preorder (there weren't many), there is no need to despair. Amazon US says it has "very limited quantities" coming in stock, you'll just need to be quick to snag one.
You will be able to grab a NES Mini from Amazon US this Friday at precisely 2PM Pacific Time. We'd recommend that you set your alarm clock 15 minutes prior to this and F5 your browser window like crazy.
Orders will be limited to one per customer and the 1-click order system will be disabled. "Demand is expected to be very high, and there's no guarantee that it will remain in stock for long," say Amazon. "We will make similar announcements when additional inventory becomes available."
You can order via our handy button:
As for other US based retailers, it's all a bit up in the air. Target hasn't had preorders since a brief period in mid-August. Best Buy and GameStop don't appear to be offering any preorders and Toys R' Us had a brief preorder period in July but have since pulled their product page. In other words, you'll need to get into stores and on their websites tomorrow and hope for the best.
Will you heed our words and make sure you're ready to place an order, or are you one of the lucky ones who already has a unit secured? Let us know with a comment below.
