    Default OMG - Another One - Nintendo SNES Classic

    It has only been a year or so since the last Nintendo debacle was announced coupled with the one of the worst launches ever which was the Nintendo NES Classic. Nintendo was never able to fill the demand for this product and then just unexpectedly cancelled the product in less than 6 months from the launch date with plenty of consumers wanting one and not wanting to pay scalper prices on Ebay.

    Well, it has happened again.

    http://www.nintendo.com/super-nes-cl...ef=producthunt

    $79.99 NOT Available on Sept. 29th, 2017 (I am kidding about the availability but it is probably true for the majority of people LOL)

    Will this one be handled better? Doesn't look like it. No Pre-Orders, from what I have heard, will be available, so it is just first come, first serve, just like the Nintendo NES Classic.

    Good luck to all that want one.

    SNES classic is sure to be a huge hit with scalpers. People will want it because it comes with an unreleased game, Starfox 2. It might not be a great game but it will be enough for people to want something that didn't exist before. They are expected to produce these for only 6 months as well. I don't know anyone with an NES classic and I suspect the same to hold true for this one.
    The reason why PS4 took number one spot again last month was Nintendo's inability to produce enough Switchs to fill demand. This company has become a huge joke since the Wii with regards to their ability to manufacture. I thought Japan had a very strong culture and a sense of honor. Failure is often ended in suicide. The failures we've seen of this company in recent years and lack of suicides makes one wonder.

    Yeah man, those pathetic pussies in JP. Don't even have the good manners to properly suicide anymore, having misplanned their supply chain.

    Losers. At least the previous generations knew when to kill themselves.

    Wal-Mart went live last night. My pre-order went through, then I tried to get a second and the page crashed, and my original pre-order received a cancellation notice at 5am this morning. Apparently they sold through preorders in about 1 minute.

    What a joke.

    These things are nothing more than glorified ads. They're just trying to spook interest in Nintendo on social media and search engines so that the Switch will start showing up in people's ad feeds.

    Just like the last one and the special edition 3ds. The people who want them can't get them, but the scalpers will have them all on ebay for $300+.

    You are better off buying a raspberry pi and installing retro pi. Cheaper too!

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.
