Yes this is not a drill, if you pre-ordered the SNES Classic from WalMart.com late last week, I’ve got some bad news for you. Your pre-order will soon be cancelled as it appears that the pre-order page was made available by mistake by the vendor.
I received this email (seen below) shortly after 3:30 PM EDT this afternoon. As you can imagine, I am stunned and extremely disappointed as I considered myself very lucky scoring an SNES Classic. Now, it is back to the drawing board as my name goes back into the hat.
The SNES Classic will be one of the most sought after items this holiday season as its predecessor, the NES Classic was very rare, and difficult to get a hold of. Nintendo made that system a limited release and has since halted production on the product. Most people speculate that the SNES Classic will have the same fate, and will also be very hard to track down.
The SNES Classic is set for release on September 29th for $79.99. For more info on the Super Nintendo Classic Edition, and when pre-orders will be made available, make sure you keep it locked to Mammoth Gamers!
