So i got my SNES classic on launch morning. Honestly if you went out looking for one on launch they were super easy to get. My best buy had over 40. Target next door had had 44. Gamestop across the street had 13. The gamestop was the only one to have the hori fighting commander wireless controller and they had 2. I just bought the controller today at another gamestop and it was their last one

So i bought it because i dont have a few of the games. Mostly i wanted to play earthbound. It is my first time playing it and it is awesome. Its set up like the NES classic witht the save states. Im glad i bought it. Im glad Nintendo stuck to what they said and made it easier to get.

The thing really is mini sitting next to the original. The controller is almost identical. The short canle os the only problem. You would think they could have fixed that.

So did you get one? What are your thoughts on it? Do you regret buying it?

I got one but it wasn't easy.  I went to Walmart (24 hours) the night before but none of the stores in the area (SW Florida) had gotten any of their shipments in.  I somehow got the last one at one of the nearby Target stores after work.  I've mostly been playing Final Fantasy 3 on it since.  Lots of great games on it...

If anyone finds one in the wild, let me know. Since I can't go hunting at physical locations, I'll never find one in the wild. I will PayPal you once you have it in hand.

I can check at my local stores as time permits.  From what I hear, they are pretty easily available this time.

Use brickseek.com (only works for Walmart & Target though).  It's how I found mine last Friday...

Thank you sir!

 

That would be great! I'm only in civilization (ie, near stores) twice a month or so.

I want one but would rather trade a new NES classic I have for it. I really don't want to pay for one. I did have someone to make that happen but he flaked out. 😥

I dont think you should have been that fast to not try. Nintendo made good on their promise to have plenty at launch

I was able to trade a new NES classic I still had for a SNES classic last night. I'm going to mod mine tonight.
