SNES Classic Offers Vanished from eBay

eBay lit up with offers on SNES Classic guaranteed pre-orders on Monday. Now they are gone.

On Monday we have seen listings for the SNES Classic with pre-order guarantee reaching $500 on eBay. Now there is not a single listing of a SNES Classic on that is valid.

Either all resellers are sold out or eBay is clamping down on these offers on a future inventory the sellers do not have yet. The situation is different in the UK. has many listings for the SNES Mini Classic. The situation in Britain is different as there have been actual pre-orders opportunities for the SNES Classic since Monday.

The supply of the SNES Classic will be larger than that for the NES Classic said Nintendo. A leak of SNES Classic shipment numbers suggests that Nintendo doubles production compared to NES Classic to almost 5 million units. The shortage is though pre-programmed as the hype around the new retro console feels to be even bigger. Reseller prices will reach at least 3x that of the list price of $79.99. Consumers should though not get too worried yet.

The race to buy a Super Nintendo Classic has not even started in the United States. Even missing out on the pre-order windows does not mean that all is over. There is still the launch day on September 29 and many more opportunities after that until the end of the year. The NES Classic was available many times online and in stores after its initial release.

Pre-orders for the SNES Classic have not yet opened in the United States. So far only three stores have began to list the SNES Classic in their online shops.
