SNES Classic Edition Consoles Sellout Nationwide at GameStop

But more are on the way.

The price tag for the Super NES Classic is around $80, but finding one may prove to be a bigger challenge than affording one. It sold out from pre-orders in mere minutes. But customers shouldn't worry.

Over the hour we played with the console together, she was drawn to the characters she recognized (Mario, yes; Samus Aran of "Super Metroid", not so much).

With that in mind, here's everything we know about the machine and the confirmed games that come pre-installed.

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System (Famicom in Japan) was priced at £50 in the United Kingdom and came with 30 Nintendo games pre-installed. It's also powered by USB (although the AC adapter is not included) and comes bundles with two wired Super NES Classic controllers. While not the company's biggest-selling console of all time, it was the victor of that generation of gaming consoles, outselling the Sega Genesis by nearly 20 million units thanks to stronger graphics and a lineup of games that included several featuring Mario and Donkey Kong.

As predicted, it still was not enough to satisfy demand and not everyone got a SNES Classic today. And furthermore, just because there's an online store, that doesn't mean people wouldn't go nuts for an affordably priced bit of hardware that just gives them their favorite games.

The Amazon app shows where its Treasure Truck is selling SNES Classic consoles from Nintendo.

Although the SNES Classic Mini was a no show at E3 2017, we now have the official word from Nintendo about the mini console. But with the NES Classic set to rerelease next summer, Nintendo might just be riding that classic console gravy train for the foreseeable future. You have blown the guarantee and no one is going to care about a problem that you have brought on yourself regardless of whether you have kept the receipt or not. The game is presented in a playful hand-drawn aesthetic, where everything looks like it was drawn by crayon, and it used the Super FX chip (which powered the 3D graphics of Star Fox) in clever and unexpected ways.
