On a side note they have lots of Nintendo Switches in stock.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

In light of today's events,

If they are using Java on their site, no wonder it's crashing. :/

I did see a JavaScript error during the process
JavaScript is not Java.

I didn't get a chance to pre-order, so I'll be there waiting in line on release day.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

Was able to get 1 off of Londondrug's surprise drop. Link was up at 12:04 and got my confirm email at 12:07.
Got my confirmation at 12:06 :P
Was furiously refreshing The Source from 12:00.
When nothing was working, I switched to NIS and saw London Drugs pop up in comments and quickly typed london drugs in address bar (link was saved from previous drop I missed) and then see Pre-order button, so jumped on it!
It was so fast that, I don't even remember how I logged into PayPal to submit the order. Crazy rush!

got a email from the source:


Thank you for your email. Our site (thesource.ca) is now up and running. We apologize for the earlier disruption. We are still investigating the issues we experienced on the SNES Classic pre-order page and have removed the product from our site until that investigation and resolution are complete. At this point, we don’t expect the product to be available over the weekend. We will provide updates as they become available.


We appreciate your patience at this time.

"investigating the issue" the issue is that their website is hosted on a dell inspiron desktop from 1997 connected to the internet through a 56k modem.
