    Have a friend that somehow set up some system to figure out where these are going and he posted on FB a bit ago that Best Buy's are in fact getting supplies tomorrow. I trust what he says, he's already bought multiple units since they came out.

    Update to say he says stores should have double digit stock. Obviously line up early but just putting it out there. I know some other friends that got store tips from him and were able to buy.

    A number of twitter feeds and sites are announcing when different stores are supposed to be getting supply.

    Best Buy is often such an unpleasant experience, I'd just as soon pass and wait until supplier are more than adequate.

    I'll bet he's the kind of guy that wants to make sure he's hit the buffet line at least three times before everyone else has been through once.

    He actually is giving them all away. He's probably the most generous person I've ever met. Every year at Christmas he gives gifts to friends. Usually it's through Amazon where he'll ask people to write a request and he'll randomly fill them, this year he's giving people the NES.

      "NES Classic Edition sold 196,000 systems in November in the United States alone"

      and they could have sold 500k+ if they would have had the units available

      I have read where a lot of people in the Technology business area think that Nintendo dropped the ball here, because this isn't new technology. If this was a new system you would want the demand. Too many people are starting to look elsewhere for a mid to low range product.

      I'll buy one when they intentionally stop the short supply horsecrap. This is to take the stink of the WiiU and to pump the Switch. I just hope I see some of the people on ebay that are egregiously overcharging have to eat it sometime soon and get less than what they paid at retail.

      I'm just guessing here, but I think they are building/holding stock of the Classic and then will flood the market 3-4 weeks before the switch is released

      Well, I've been a purchaser of pretty much every Nintendo console and handheld for quite some time but that ends now.

      Since I missed out on this unit I've been thinking about getting one of the Retron HD consoles.


      this is a HD (720p) unit that has a hdmi output, 10' cord on the controller, will work with other wireless controller set-ups, usb power input, and works with NES game cartridges.
      2nd & Charles has them for $40 new.

      for the games I would pick up one of these type cartridges.


      does anyone have any experience with them? If so, what are your thoughts?

      they also make other consoles that'll play cartridges from other systems too.
