SNES Classic Preorders Reportedly Live on Best Buy, May Require Refreshing [Updated]

Get ready to mash that F5 key.

Update: Looks like they're gone for now, but we'll keep you updated if they appear again. In the meantime, don't be surprised if they appear on Amazon, Walmart, or another outlet at some point on Tuesday.

Preorders finally appear to be going live for the Super NES Classic Mini. Reports have begun circulating social media that Nintendo's new retro console is available on Best Buy.

While it is currently listed as out of stock on the official page, some are saying that availability is fluctuating.

Here at USgamer, we were able to land at least one, but otherwise we haven't had a lot of luck. It's not available on Walmart or Amazon, either, but that could change quickly.

SNES Classic preorders have been hotly anticipated since its official reveal. They appeared to go up several months ago on Walmart, but they were eventually retracted.

A bunch of new SNES Classic news has been coming in through Gamescom and other sources. Keep an eye on this site for our hands-on impressions, which should be going up in a couple hours.
