If you think the shortages were bad before, imagine how bad they'd be if both products were on the market at the same time

Ha!

I bet this is because they need more units to sell to offset not having enough units for switch for Holiday season going into Next year because of Shortage issues with Component supplier.

Get ready for Nintendo to have more SNES classics than switches this Holiday and going into 2018.

My heart skipped a beat and thought the SNES Classic was delayed into 2018.

Great news, wonder if the NES Classic will be available in Quebec for this new batch.

Good on Nintendo, but it's still baffling that it took them this long to react and that they've not been more communicative on the subject. By this time, I'm sure a lot of people have taken a hit and spent ridiculous amounts of money to scalpers.

I wouldn't be worried at all if I were a scalper...shipping into 2018 won't mean much unless they are shipping lots and lots. I hope they do, but paint me pessimistic for now.

Great news. I can't wait to get my hands on a NES Classic. My wife and I have been wanting one for nostalgia, and we don't care for the SNES (never had one). But if the supply is there, and it's a fair price, I'll pick up both.

Glad to hear there is more stock than anticipated. I've got multiple pre orders with wal mart, Amazon, and a GameStop bundle. I'll only return the GameStop bundle and sell the others to friends at cost.

If you want it on launch day, don't cancel your day off. But if you don't mind waiting for a few weeks/months for later shipments, you can cancel your day off.

Don't know why they need to wait until summer 2018 to release something they've already sold before. It's a primitive system so can't be difficult to produce.

I guess the answer is simply Nintendo.

I'm sure Nintendo will still undership both consoles and all this will do is give scalpers more stock to put on ebay for 10 times the MSRP.

Glad I saw this news today, was about to post in the other SNES thread last night about how disappointed I was with the way Nintendo handled these two launches because they seem like perfect gifts for me and my brother to get our kids so they can see what their dad's grew up playing with the look and feel of the controller, console and all.

At least they are listening somewhat, that makes me happy. Hopefully this time I'll be able to walk into a store and buy one off of the shelf.

So Nintendo is now juggling 4 systems, 2 in feverish demand, 1 still not readily available in its strongest markets, and 1 still selling and just recently released a new revision.

That's a lot on the plate. Good Luck.

One is the ugly NA design and the other is the superior PAL design. They are functionally identical otherwise aside from the SNES controller having concave buttons on the NA design.

They don't want to release the SNES Classic and re-release the NES Classic too close to each other.

I gotta admit, I had no interest in the NES Classic (cause I'd already bought the games I wanted multiple times on multiple VCs) until I somehow got a hold of a SNES Classic preorder. Then suddenly I needed to complete the impossible-to-find collection.

Now I'm like eh...

Still gonna get a NES when the stock refreshes tho

eh...I dunno about that. I think people wanted a nice little roku-like thing for NES games.

I just wish you could download more games to it and tie it to a Nintendo account so you could play them on Switch

Still waiting on Virtual Console, Nintendo.

Cool. I was wondering if they were doing 50Hz and 60Hz again lol. I'll try to grab a PAL one then, looks nicer

Glad these Nintendo are listening and these should be easier to find, I hope everyone who wants one gets one! :)

Lol, you really just can't get over that Reggie thread,huh?

I hope now everyone who wants a SNES Classic can get one. It'll make me feel a lot better about modding mine to play NBA Jam. Boom shakalaka!

Good to hear. I'm still hesitant to cancel my amazon.de order despite having a best buy one as I really don't trust Nintendo at this point. Will it ever be at the point where I can just walk into a store to snag one or will it remain a lottery every time the stores refresh their stock for another year?
