$79.99 SNES Classic In Stock at GameStop and ThinkGeek Stores on Friday

GameStop confirms to sell SNES Classic unbundled on September 29.

GameStop and ThinkGeek stores will stock the $79.99 SNES Classic starting September 29. "Each store will have a limited and varied amount of consoles. Starting Friday, consoles can be purchased individually from GameStop or ThinkGeek for $79.99," said GameStop in an email to I4U News.

The SNES Classic pre-order was a disaster taking down the gamestop.com site. We have no details yet on how many SNES Classic units will be available at GameStop and the few ThinkGeek retail locations around the nation. Update: GameStop will also sell the SNES Classic online on gamestop.com and thinkgeek.com.

Additionally, GameStop and ThinkGeek will offer accessories and collectibles to match the SNES Classic. Items include Funko Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Box, Pixel Pals Classic Nintendo Characters, including Mario & Luigi, SNES YoK Wireless Controller – Red + Blue and the Playing with Super Power: Super NES Classic Collector’s Edition book.

Some Best Buy stores receive close to 400 units and Target stores get up to 300 units. If all these units will arrive on launch day is not set, but shipments of the SNES Classic will continue to flow in after launch.

Despite the huge number of SNES Classic units hitting shelves on Friday, lining up in the morning is likely required to get your hands on a $79.99 SNES Classic. At this point, we question the necessity to line-up overnight, depending on your location. The only midnight launch party that is worthwhile lining up on Thursday or earlier is the SNES Classic party at the Nintendo New York Flagship store.
