SNES Classic Consoles Available in Select Cities Through Amazon Prime Now

SNES Classic Consoles Available in Select Cities Through Amazon Prime Now

Amazon is selling SNES Minis in a handful of major cities.

If you're quick enough you might be able to get a SNES Classic today in time for the holidays.

Reports are coming in that Amazon Prime Now will deliver SNES Classic units in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, San Antonio, and San Diego. If you're not in any of those cities however, you might be out of luck.

Earlier today Thinkgeek had both the NES Classic and SNES Classic available for purchase at their suggested retail price of $59.99 and $79.99 respectively. However, both of those have sold out. There's a chance that Thinkgeek might roll out more units before or after Christmas.

The SNES Classic has been popping up at retailers like Walmart and Gamestop sporadically this month, which is a surprise given that by this time last year it was virtually impossible to find a NES Classic that wasn't being sold at an extremely high mark-up. Nintendo announced that based on the demand for the NES Classic the company would be trying harder to keep SNES Classic in-stock, and at the very least that seems to be some improvement.

While the SNES Classic is still not the easiest console to get a hold of, there will most likely be more opportunities to get one before the holidays if you keep your eyes peeled. We wll also do our best to report on any new availabilities.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
