This How to Not Miss the Pre-order of SNES Classic Edition

Preordering a Super NES Classic Edition will be difficult. Here are all tools to help not to miss the pre-order opportunities. Updated.

The good news is that you did not miss the pre-order for the SNES Classic Edition in the US yet. Nintendo announced the SNES Classic Edition on Monday, June 26. While European Nintendo fans already have and had the opportunity to pre-order the SNES Classic, the US stores have not offered pre-order for the SNES Classic as of Wednesday morning.

Our SNES Classic inventory tracker is currently monitoring SNES Classic listings of Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon. SNES Classic pre-order opportunities could surface at any time between now and September 29. All three variants of the SNES Classic are now listed on video game importer Play-Asia. This is the fourth store that lists the US SNES Classic Edition.

The Nintendo UK online store sold through its pre-order inventory of the SNES Classic in about 20 minutes today. Once pre-orders of the SNES Classic Edition go live in the United States, you will have even less time.

It is of absolute necessity to know about the SNES Classic pre-order right away. There are tools and services available that help consumers to get notified when the SNES Classic is available for preorder. Disclaimer: We offer one of these tools called The Tracker. We recommend though to use a portfolio of tools to make sure you do not miss out. Find our recommendations below.

At this stage not all stores have started to list the SNES Classic Edition in their online stores. This means that not all automatic tracking and monitoring is setup and live. There is still a lot of research necessary to make sure to know about all available sources for the Super NES Classic.

One of the most lively discussion about the SNES Classic pre-order was on NeoGaf, but it has been shut down. The next most active forum is on the SNES Classic forum of inventory tracker NowInStock. Also fairly active discussion about SNES Classic discussion on CheapAssGamer.
