More SNES Classic Units Will be Available at GameStop and ThinkGeek Starting Today

The video game retailer will be getting a new allotment of SNES Classic shipments this week.

The SNES Classic will be back in stock at GameStop and ThinkGeek this week. If you missed out on one during the launch date now's the time to call your local GameStop store.

According to Glixel, GameStop representatives told the publication that SNES Classic units will be available in stores starting today, Tuesday October 10, and available online starting tomorrow, Wednesday October 11. Both in-store and online units can be purchased either individually or in bundles, and all U.S. stores should apparently have full shipment allotment by Thursday, October 12 according to GameStop.

This is another good sign that Nintendo is following through on Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime's, statement about maintaining a stock of SNES Classic units through the holiday season. Customers on the internet are so far expressing how much easier it is to find a SNES Classic this year than it was to find a NES Classic last year.

The one possible drawback is that GameStop and ThinkGeek are both still offering bundles which forcibly tie together the SNES Classic with unrelated gaming paraphernalia also sold by either GameStop or ThinkGeek. The bundling of these products usually inflates the price of the SNES Classic by throwing in products that are not necessary to play or enjoy the SNES Classic, but sometimes are the only way to get the SNES Classic if individual units are sold-out.

Coincidentally, we're giving away a SNES Classic on USGamer this week. Check this post for rules on how to win one. Also check out our review of the system here.
