this was on JB and EB Games a few months ago for pre-order and I didn't bother thinking I could get it instore. the preorder links were removed as it sold out. it was meant to be released today, available instore. stores opened at 8:30 with limited stock and immediately sold out on opening. they must have had less then 10 or something. and silly me thought I could walk in at 9:30 and get one, not at my local store. so I called every other Target store near me and the same thing.

what a joke, limited stock my ass. that's ultra limited! utter bull crap, at least have 100 per store not 10. and the worst part is people are bought them for $99 and are selling them for $250, $350 or higher. what's so sad about that is people are bidding for it as well.

Sega are releasing a Mini Console as well, shouldn't have any problem getting that.

Nintendo on Facebook says the 2nd shipment will be in early December.

this was available in stock today on Target's website at 8am, so I tried to get one and failed.

it looked like I could actually get one but so many people were trying to get one at the same time and It sold out.

there was system errors and failed to work some times. this is crazy!

Did you ever get one Cyborg?

I got sick of waiting so decided to get a Raspberry Pi instead. Can play any game I want on that so it's great!

Cyborg do a google search.
Basically it's an emulator and you download the games off the net.
Fairly simple and very fun.
