Called Best Buy and was told theyre backordered and should be restocked in a week or so.

Not looking good...
my luck is worse I think, got it shipped on Friday and has been on truck for delivery since Monday, officially considering it lost. no hope to get another one Crying Face

I am thinking about selling mine for those who are still looking. It's barely used, still has the box, and comes with an extra controller. There's nothing wrong with it. I simply don't play it. I'd rather have a Switch.

I'm kind of in the same boat as I really want to play that new Zelda game.

Looking to trade for the NES Classic + cash.

I have to be honest, the rarity of the console has probably made it less saleable. If you ask for more than twice the retail value I don't see many people being interested. Ask for less and it might seem like there's something wrong with it.
If you overpaid then best of luck, if you got it for retail then be prepared to sell for way less than the Kijiji leeches or just keep it, since its sale won't get you that much closer to purchasing a Switch.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

I sold mine for twice the retail value - a week before the discontinued announcement.

Happened to find one at EB Games that day, sold it a few hours later.

Is it the same technology as the one when we were kids? Or it's only the same theme?

Nintendo announced a few months back that it’s re-releasing the NES Classic on June 29, 2018.

We’re 6 days away, but haven’t heard any info on where it’ll be sold or possible pre-orders. Anyone see any info around it?

Saw a post on Reddit yesterday that said pre-orders were available in the UK. Don't recall where.
