GameStop Stores Restock SNES Classic Each Week
  • First on the SNES Classics:

SNES Classic available at GameStop stores.

A new wave of SNES Classic Edition shipments has arrived. GameStop told I4U News that their physical stores receive new SNES Classic stock each week.

"GameStop is getting a steady stream of SNES Classics each week. This will allow gamers and gifters to get their hands on this system during the holidays. The timing of quantities of shipments do vary by stores so GameStop recommends customers call their local store(s) to check if their SNES weekly shipments have arrived, " said a GameStop representative in an email.

GameStop is keeping mum about online availability of the SNES Classic at Earlier this week there was a hint that GameStop would sell the SNES Classic online today. So far we could not confirm this.

The SNES Classic has not been available online since Nov. 28. You can sign-up to win a ticket to purchase a SNES Classic at ThinkGeek. Not only that, ThinkGeek also offers the option to buy the NES Classic. There are only hours left to sign-up at

ThinkGeek says that they received a shipment of NES and SNES Classics to their warehouse. If this is already from the new NES Classic production run planned for summer of 2018 is not clear. ThinkGeek offered the random access to purchase an NES Classic also last year. Customers love this option as they don't have to hurry to try to hit F5 faster than others. The method of inviting customers to buy a SNES Classic online via email, stops shopping bots in their tracks. Find out more on the ThinkGeek sign-up page for the NES and SNES Classic sale.

We expect the SNES Classic to be in stock online not only at GameStop before the Holidays. The SNES Classic will make a return to Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target and other stores.

As soon as the SNES Classic will be in stock online the Tracker app will send out an alert on smartphones and a tweet at @TheTrackerApp as soon as the SNES Classic will be in stock at major online retailers. Make sure you have checked "Notify Me" on the SNES Classic listing in the Tracker App.

Nintendo has so far sold over 2 million SNES Classic units to date. The SNES Classic comes bundled with an HDMI cable, a USB charging cable, two Super NES Classic Controllers, and 21 games, pre-installed and ready-to-play. The 16-bit retro console, first introduced in the 90s is also compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories.
