The daily Nintendo NES Classic sale at the Walmart online shop continues, Walmart just announced.

Walmart just announced today on Facebook to offer again limited NES Classic stock online today at 5pm ET and on Tuesday 5pm ET. Walmart's Facebook page post states: "Want the hottest gift of the holiday season? Well, come and get it at the Walmart online store. It’s available for sale at 2pm PST on 11/21 and 11/22. Limited inventory. Limit 1 per customer."

The good news is that the NES Classic Flash sales continue on walmart.com, but beating the Tai Ding Bot is hard. Today it will be easier as Walmart finally puts a limit of 1 per customer in place. We have talked to Tai Ding bot users who bagged a dozen NES in a flash sale last week.

Update: The NES Classic Edition sale at 5pm ET on Monday took place and real-time tracker did recognize inventory availability of the $59.99 NES Classic and the original $9.99 NES Controller. As usual the NES Flash lasted less than a minute. Reports on Facebook indicated that some shoppers have successfully managed to buy a NES Classic Edition at the regular price. On Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 2pm PST/5PM ET is the next chance to buy a NES Classic on walmart.com.

Walmart has sold limited quantities of the hyped Nintendo NES Classic each day at 5pm ET last week. No other store has NES inventory. Over the weekend no NES Classic has been offered.

To beat the bots today at 5pm ET at walmart.com to buy a NES Classic you need to be prepared. Make sure you are logged into your account on walmart.com with credit card information stored into the account.

You also should already configure Walmart store (My Store) where you want to pick up your NES. This is faster and cheaper than getting it shipped. When it is time you need to move fast with your mouse and react to what is happening in your browser. Use the browser's back button in case the cart fails. Try your luck one more time at 5pm ET on this walmart.com page.

The NES Classic Edition sells for a minimum of $239.99 from resellers at the Amazon Market Place.

The new Nintendo Entertainment System is a great item for the Holidays. It works great as gift for adults as well as kids. Families can enjoy playing the simple video games from the 80s together. There are 3rd party controllers and accessories that make the NES more fun to use.

Nintendo knows it messed up, underestimating the demand for the NES Classic Edition. Nintendo has issued a statement on Twitter on November 11 acknowledging the shortage of the NES Classic Edition. "The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system is a hot item, and we are working hard to keep up with consumer demand. There will be a steady flow of additional systems through the holiday shopping season and into the new year. Please contact your local retailers to check availability."

The shrunk NES console, retailing for $59.99 list price, features the classic Nintendo NES controller many geeks have grown up with. The retro console comes pre-installed with 30 classic NES games including Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man, Metroid, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and Kirby's Adventures. The NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, originally released in 1985.
