Just woke up and saw that mine got cancelled. All my info was correct and I didn't get any notification from my CC company about any suspicious activity.

I got one about ten minutes before the sale ended. Keep checking my email expecting a cancellation but nothing so far. Considering I never got to see an NES Classic it's a bit hard to believe.

After managing to get a few of those Galaxy S8+s and all of those Amazon game glitches, I feel like online shopping karma was due to me.
Good luck to everyone that hasn't been cancelled

I'm sure everyone is already following the GOAT Wario64, but I'd also recommend following and turning alerts on for @FatKidAlerts...I had my walmart order confirmation in my inbox before W64's tweet or the Neogaf thread

Just woke up to the same fucking email. Absolute bullshit. I got my order in within 5 minutes of it Wario tweeting, and I even ordered something from their website earlier in the day and that hasn't been cancelled or any such shit. No notifications from my bank, the authorization charge is even still listed in my recent transactions.

Man alive I am fucking PISSED.

I went through PayPal with a very positive balance... So far no cancelation. Pray for me GAF. Pray for me.

Like many, I never even SEEN a NES classic in stores or available online. This does feel like a dream-or- a nightmare if it gets cancelled.

I used my paypal balance, so if anything they can't say it's a CC issue.

This is all Nintendo. If they didn't under ship the nea classic people wouldn't be losing their minds.

I don't know if it's wise to expect pre orders for the system going forward. Did anyone do pre orders on the nes classic besides target?

Why isnt any US retailer taking pre orders? Its going to be a mad house again just like last year for the NES Classic. I hope this time retailers are going to do a 1 per costumer policy.

Honestly I had this thought last night. Since none of the other retailers followed suit and it was kind of a weird late time when it went up I did briefly wonder if it got listed by mistake.

If not though fuck them!! There's nothing wrong with any of my CC information. The fact that I ordered something else from them earlier the same day and it's fine yet this got cancelled because they "couldn't verify my payment" bullshit when the preauthorization is still sitting on my bank statement is infuriating.

This. Imagine a world where you can just buy Nintendo products when you want them. Nintendo is forever great at making amazing games and wretched shit at everything else.

Still hoping to see an Amazon pre-order but I'm loathe to give Nintendo money.

Did you preorder and then go to bed without checking your email?

I had the same email, but received it almost immediately after placing an order. They didn't like my credit card. I tried twice with that card and then finally got my order to go through with a different card on my third attempt and I still have my preorder as of yet.

EDIT: I just checked my order status on Walmart's site and my order is cancelled too. No email. Maybe everyone is getting theirs cancelled now and all the emails haven't rolled out yet. Check walmart.com for your order status, guys!

No, I did it just after Wario tweeted about it, then checked my email and saw my order confirmation after I had placed the order. The cancellation didn't come until at least 8 hours later.

Yep I used the same card for both orders.

They had the Splatoon 2 Pro Controller for $67 and I ordered one of those. Now I'm starting to worry there's something up and that will get cancelled too...
