- Please do not visit Slickdeals or any website and then come to whine about someone ordering more than 1. We know, and scalper whining clogs up the thread.
- NO RESELLING "ETHICS/MORALS/MONOLOGUE/ITHINKITS" DISCUSSION. Get out with that endless circle drama.
- No speculating when preorders will go live for a certain retailer. The SNES Classic announcement thread got locked due to people getting confused and bumping it constantly to speculate when a preorder will go live

UPDATED RECAP (Aug 22 2017 8PM EDT):
RECAP OF TODAY FOR THOSE JUST JOINING/VIEWING THIS THREAD FOR A PRAYER/BEACON OF HOPE:
BestBuy.com and Amazon.com opened their reserves in the middle of the night. Their reserves were up for a really long time in comparison to the rest because everyone was asleep.
Walmart.com opened reserves for 5 seconds [no joke] before selling out.
Target.com apparently was opening reserves in waves and there's a in-browser command you can use to spam the pre-order button, which then added to cart and may or may not still be there by the time you actually get to checkout. People have had success, others have not. I myself have been cart-jacked 7 times.The pre-order button now has disappeared and has been replaced with "Coming Soon" like Best Buy's site. Some people have reported that their orders have been cancelled if they were placed 45 mins prior to 3:20pm PST
GameStop.com opened reserves online, sold out within 30 seconds or so before their site crashed, crash landing page redirected users to ThinkGeek.
ThinkGeek.com had consoles available but only in Bundles. Bundles came with useless shit with prices ranging from 139 all the way up to 300+
GameStop stores opened reserves and each location has an EXTREMELY limited allotment [average is about 10 per store]. Physical stores still have some up from what people are posting but only 1-2 per store from what I've seen. I managed to reserve mine at a physical location.
Toys R Us announced via Twitter that they will NOT be doing online reserves and it will be a first-come-first serve basis on the day of release. They don't give a fuck about human lives.
Hope this helps anyone trying to catch up. All of the above aside from BB and Amazon happened from 9am PST to about 2pm PST
The thread name was changed to mimic the actual events of today.
As of this writing, GameStop Bundles are currently the only way to reserve one other than the launch-day Toys R Us armageddon.
Good luck everyone.
