SNES Classic Kicks Off Holiday 2017 Gift Shopping Early
 

It is middle of the summer, but one of the hottest Holiday gifts of 2017 is here.

Nintendo announced what is for sure one of the hottest Holiday gifts last week. The $79.99 SNES Classic Edition console will be released on September 29. It is middle of summer and not that many consumers think about shopping for Holiday gifts. You should probable make an exception for the SNES Classic Edition. 

The new retro console from Nintendo is well on its way to surpass the NES Classic in popularity. The SNES Classic Edition has been selling out fast in pre-sales in Europe and the hype among Nintendo fans is gigantic. There is no information about possible pre-order windows in the United States. It could well be that the sale begins on September 29 without any prior pre-orders. 

The SNES Classic Edition will sell out on launch day. Consumers will then have weeks of lining up at retail locations and try their luck at online flash sales to get a SNES Classic in time for the Holidays. Getting your hands on a SNES Classic on launch day is the recommended route. End of September is still very early for Holiday gift shopping, but finding a SNES Classic during the actual Holiday shopping season will be very hard.

Nintendo has said that the will make more SNES Classic than NES Classic, but the demand appears to already be higher than it has been for the NES Classic. It will be easier to find a Nintendo Switch in stock during the Holiday season than a SNES Classic Edition.
