Try Target this morning, no luck. Went to BB about 8:15 and saw a few people in line got on the last. Later one of the employer came out and gave out ticket, since they only have 17 in stock I was the last one who got the last ticket. Sweet.

I also pickup the Edge Joystick for $24.99. They only have just three, I was lucky to grab one.

I'd be shocked if the secondary market on these thrives for very long past the holidays. It's a great cheap gift item, but once it gets to stupid price levels it's not worth it especially since there are other ways to play these games. It's not like the Wii in 2006 where that's the only way you could play Wii Sports.

Yeah. I'd like one of these, but I can easily add the roms onto my Homebrewed DS or Wii, so I'm not in any hurry,

Can't get the joystick working on the console. Manuel was no help. Anyone who have one having problem?

Crazy...and a little bit pathetic that Nintendo did not anticipate the demand. It really is foolish for anyone to pay crazy afermarket prices when after the holidays this should be relatively easy to pick up without getting up early to wait in a line. Heck, why spend hundreds on this when you can pick up the latest playstation or xbox for as much as if not less than what eBayers want for this (and I cringe at what eBayers are asking even though I am getting ready to sell a ton of music and blus on eBay this weekend...but I do have scruples about what I would charge someone on the secondary market for this type of product)

It's a weird human nature that people want something that is scarce. Yeah, I'm too lazy to boot up my Wii U to play my virtual console titles, but I'll overspend on a novelty toy.

A part of me really wants this, but I have to keep telling myself I already have an Ouya loaded with way more games, plus other systems.

I wonder how many today or going to buy it because everyone seems to want it, yet later have buyers remorse because they won't play it enough or get bored with the dated tech/graphics.

I can see people getting bored with this fast and then selling their units to Gamestop by the new year.

I was hitting refresh on Amazon, and saw it come up. But then when I tried to add it to my cart I kept getting errors.

I guess Amazon has crapped out with this item.

I can't even get the fucking page to load up.

Fuck this, I'll just wait until it's widely available (if I get it) Fucking Amazon hooligans.

I still can't get Amazon to pull up on my desktop, but it pulls up fine on my phone. So I'm guessing the people checking on phones probably got them.

The item continues to fluctuate from "unavailable" to "59.99". You all who want it might want to keep trying.

Before the page crapped out, it said it wasn't eligible for Prime and there was a 4.98 shipping charge.

Oh well I thought I would give it a try.

Re: NES Classic Edition (30 games; 60 bucks; 11/11/2016)

showed up for me a few times as 59.99 plus 4.98 shipping, no prime. Added to cart and it would just go to a page that said my cart was empty.

Page won't even load now.

They should have made everyone order it through Alexa....those Echo Dots would have flown off the shelves.
