SNES Classic Mini Available in UK on Gumtree and soon at Argos
 

The European SNES Classic Edition is selling on reseller sites. Update.

The SNES Classic Edition is not listed on eBay in the United States yet. eBay does not allow listings of presale items that are not shipping within 30 days. While doing some research today on UK's eBay site we have spotted a few new SNES Classic Mini listings out of Germany for about £180, but while writing this report, eBay removed these listings.

Another UK trading platform apparently does not have these presale limitations. There are SNES Classic Mini pre-orders on sale for £150 on GumTree here, and a seller offers his £50 SNES pre-order deposit at a GAME store for £75 here. We only managed to spot two SNES Classic listings. The regular price for the SNES Classic Mini in the UK is £69.99.

Update: A new SNES Classic Mini offer surfaced on Gumtree for £200 here. In USD this offer is about $250. We expect this to be the reseller price of the SNES Classic once the 30-day ban on eBay is passed.

There are soon more SNES Classic Mini consoles that go up for pre-order in the UK. Retail chain Argos will have a third wave of SNES Classic pre-orders soon. An Argos staff member said so in answer to a customer on the SNES Classic mini product page on argos.co.uk.

Many American Nintendo fans also want a "PAL" version of the SNES Classic, but Argos is not shipping the SNES Classic to the United States. The focus should though be anyway first on the upcoming SNES Classic pre-order in the US. We managed to place a pre-order for a European SNES Classic on the day of the announcement at amazon UK. We will give the SNES Classic Mini away to our readers as soon as it arrives at our Offices.

On August 1, Nintendo announced that the SNES Classic would be available for pre-order at select retailers late August. To know when more pre-order options open up, we recommend following these best practices for SNES Classic Pre-order notifications.

The best practices include downloading the free The Tracker app. The online inventory tracking app sends a notification to your smartphone when the SNES Classic is available for pre-order at Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, ToysRUs, and GameStop.

The Tracker app helps you find stock of hard to find products in online stores. The most popular products that users are tracking include the Nintendo Switch and SNES Classic.

You select the products you want from the list of hard to find items. The Tracker triggers a notification on your iPhone or Android smartphone as soon as the product you want is in stock at an online retailer. Tap the notification, and you are ready to hit the buy button at amazon.com or other major online retailers.

With The Tracker app buying hard to find toys, video games, electronics, and other products is now easy and stress-free.

The Nintendo Store in New York confirmed to sell the SNES Classic Edition on September 29, starting at 9 am. Besides the Nintendo Store, it's expected that the Nintendo Switch will be available at Best Buy, Walmart, Target and ToysRUs stores on release day. Amazon is also expected to sell the SNES Classic on release day.

Nintendo announced the $79.99 SNES Classic on June 26. The Super NES Classic Edition will be released on September 29. The SNES Classic Edition is a miniature version of the 90s Super NES console. Nintendo selected 21 games that are pre-installed on the SNES Classic including the never-released Starfox 2.

On paper, the SNES Classic is going to be much easier to purchase than the NES Classic. There is just way more time to find one before the Holidays. Nintendo also promised a much higher number of units. The fact that Nintendo officially announced that the SNES Classic would be available for pre-order means extensive inventory.

The NES Classic pre-order inventory was insufficient and not officially announced. The SNES Classic will be increasingly harder to find closer to the Holidays. Nintendo sold 2.3 million NES Classic consoles worldwide. We estimate based on a leak, that Nintendo is doubling the production of the SNES Classic to 4.6 million to satisfy the global demand for the 16-bit retro console coming in hot from the 90s.

The SNES Classic Edition is one of the hottest products of 2017. To keep up with everything SNES Classic, read the latest SNES Classic news and availability updates.
