It'll need to support 4 controllers, so they'll be able to pad the margin on extra controllers at $30 to $40 a pop. Hopefully they will include Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2 along with the expected first party titles like Mario64/Mario Party/Mario Tennis&Golf/Zeldas/Kirby64/Yoshi Story/DK64/Super Smash, etc.

You can still play those N64 games just fine (I'd say even better) with the Wii classic-controller.

My order is still good. In fact my credit card got an authorization for the $86.99 charge from Walmart.

Hopefully when I pick it up at Walmart in October (when it gets sent there) that I don't get mugged coming out of the store.

Re: The inevitable SNES Classic is coming (inc. Starfox 2!; 21 games, 9/29/17, $80)

When Walmart took my Switch order, they didn't cancel it, they didn't send any kind of communication and when people asked they were told varying things from customer service. But a lot of people were backordered. Not sure if they all got their Switch, I would assume so since they've been trickling out. So as long as you're not adamant about getting it on release you should be ok, though this release is probably much more limited.

Just two of the many, many reddit threads from disgruntled and confused Walmart preorders for the Switch:

Re: The inevitable SNES Classic is coming (inc. Starfox 2!; 21 games, 9/29/17, $80)

And... cancelled.

Quote:
Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition. As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall.

Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake.

In regards to the cancellation of this item, if you paid by credit card, your card has not been charged. Any authorization holds placed on your account will automatically expire in accordance with the card issuer's policy. If you paid through PayPal or with a gift card, your payment will be refunded when the order is cancelled.

The official launch date for this item is 9/29, please check the product page on Walmart.com prior to that date for any updates.

I do hope you’ll give us another chance to earn back your business.

It's more like Nintendo has a set pre-order date, and retailers can't break it to give themselves an advantage.

Now I wonder if Walmart actually "sold out" of their anticipated inventory, or just delisted it.

I'm sure Walmart got a lot of blowback from people complaining why it was listed at 11pm ET on a Friday night. I wonder if someone posted the listing without authorization and Nintendo got word of it.

Most likely someone added an entry for the item into their inventory system to prepare for pre-orders, stocking stores, etc. and forgot to uncheck the "list online" option.

He'll probably be checking off the "Have you ever been fired from a job" option pretty soon.

i wasn't being serious, btw. i just find it comical that this has happened time and time again with hard to find items and it will continue to happen.

My order is still open.

EDIT: I just got an email from Walmart, they bumped up my order a few days. I'm on fire!

Man, I hate to hear that fellas. This is one reason i'm not even going to bother in trying to get one.

Too much hassle, too little units for everyone who wants one to get one. Nintendo must love leaving money on the table.

It's not even Nintendo's fault this time and they're getting the blame...

Pre-salt for the inevitable shortage at launch. If the OG Classic was readily available, no one would care too much about these pre-orders being cancelled.

Is it too soon to say Nintendo can stick this thing right up their ass?
