Great things ahead the SNES Classic Mini is sure to be a smash hit

Super Nintendo Classic Mini Nintendo SNES new SNES review

Both Amazon and Best Buy's pre-orders went live early this morning and sold out in less than 30 minutes, according to Kotaku. Instead of jumping right to where you saved, you'll jump in a few minutes beforehand, and you'll be able to scrub back and forth within that window and pick out the precise place that you want to rejoin the game.

Nintendo put its SNES Classic up for pre-order Monday night at midnight, but like its predecessor it sold out in record time. Pre-orders are also available from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Toys R Us, and Walmart.

Your top option is to pre-order online and keep tabs with the website NowInStock.Net. The same thing happened with the NES Classic Edition and those consoles are still selling for prices similar to a PlayStation 4 or XBox One. For retailers to accurately track pre orders, they have to post their links at times when most of America is sleeping. The SNES Classic is no different, with a mini version of the SNES (different regions get different variants which is cool). As it turns out, many people are in the market for miniature game consoles loaded with some of their favorite games from times past.

But save states were expected, as they were included on the NES Classic as well.

Like you, I hate this. This is the edition I've been waiting for, and one of the reasons why I haven't bought the new 3DS XL yet. Why is this a such hard concept in 2017?

The packaging is suitably retro-styled

Nintendo has had a resurgence over the past couple of years, as it reinvents itself for the 21st century. Just look at the Switch and the amiibo craze. They're already going quickly.

It's also not a bad idea to visit nearby brick and mortar locations of the above stores in person to inquire about pre-orders.

The SNES Classic delivers on that front.

Of course I am just blindly complaining like everyone else. "The SNES Classic offers authenticity, but changes in the industry over the past quarter century have been - for all their faults - largely for the best".
