Anyone can download this hakchi software and download more games? Is this even legal?
The hakchi software is legal. Roms not so much, though they are widely available on the internet and people are running them in everything from smartphones to arcade cabinets. Unless you dump it yourself from the cartridges or boards you own. Presumably if the games are still on paid for services or the copyright holder is enforcing their copyright they usually send legal notice to get a site to take their games down. But oddly a place like the internet archive for preservation reasons you can play many old console and ms dos games legally for free: https://archive.org//details/consoleliv ... collection. It's a pretty gray area usually companies like Nintendo that is strictly enforcing copyrights to their older games will have them taken down.

Nintendo sold 1.7 million SNES by September 30.(Nintendo reported)
Probably that includes pre-launch and launch day...

Got an order through to Best Buy on Friday, but my order is still "in progress" 4 days later.

Sometimes that happens and the next thing you know it goes to out for delivery. Although there was some rumblings that Best Buy oversold last Friday. Call Customer Service to find out and report back here when you find out.

No. Surely the police will the knocking on your door within minutes, just like the last time I streamed a movie through Kodi.

I sent them an email and the reply was basically "sit tight".

Eaton Centre EB (lower level) might have 4 in stock now. Just grabbed one along side someone else. They got 6 in today. Best case they still have 4.

So it turns out my brother doesn't want the SNES classic. I'll see if any of my friends want it, if not I will sell to a RFD member at cost.

I just got an email from Best Buy saying there's been a small delay in my order and they will update me in 3-5 business days when it is expected to ship out.

WTF is this? Anyone else get this email?

It looks that way. Since when you log in to check your order it shows as item is out of stock. So I am guessing they are waiting for the next shipment.
