[Walmart] SNES Classic Edition in-stock at local Walmart (YMMV)

SNES Classic back in-stock, just bought one at Northland Village in Calgary.

You can try your luck if you’re still looking for one.

They've been coming pretty regularly... just luck of the draw.
Might be noteworthy if they had 25 in stock.

Very likely YMMV still.

Caught some at a best buy and an eb in the past few weeks. Best buy was about 3 weeks ago and had a huge stack but the eb (2 days ago, Bloor in Toronto) had 4 total. Keep checking if you really want one. Price has dropped a lot in the resell market too.

Do people who have this actually still play this after a week or two? I feel like if I ever got one it just couldnt compete with my xbox one, ps4, and wii u, and i grew up with all the old systems. I think these games were fun as a kid but its all we had back then and that was the best we had. I understand the whole nostalgia thing, but i just wonder how long it would last, where instead i could be playing breath of the wild, or battlefield 1, or forza horizon 3. I think this snes classic would only work for me if i bought it and left it up at the family cottage along with my N64. Curious what other people who actually got one and how much use it gets

It’s literally just for those nostalgic moments with your Friends and family, one you can’t get with the current gen systems

Dude some of the best games ever were on the SNES. Megaman X... Final Fantasy VI... Super Mario World...Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Link to the Past, the list goes on man. And all of those games have aged well, unlike almost all PS1 and N64 games. Some games didn't like Mario Kart, but we wouldn't have MK today if it weren't for the SNES. But it can be hacked easily to add like 300+ games, so it should be a no brainer.

Plus if you have kids its a great simple way to start them on games.

Brampton's BestBuy has at least 20 SNES classics in stock for at least 2 weeks. Just gotta ask the desk at gaming, they're locked up in the back.

I had my friends over and we were playing Mario kart, nhl 94, nba jam..... it was a blast. I have game boy advance, Sega, need, SNES and a fee n64 games on the classic. it's bloody amazing. it'd about gameplay not graphics. I'm playing xhrono trigger right now. that's a real rpg. if not the best.

I recently introduced my son to video games, and we’ve been on SNES (emulator) for about a month now. I’ve been surprised by how well games have held up.

Yoshi’s World is a fantastic platformer. Link to the Past is a great adventure. Donkey Kong Country is lots of fun. The list goes on!

Easily hacked for 300+ games? How?

Instructions or link or vendor to do this would be appreciated. Tia

So much better and cheaper to build a raspberry pi with 10,000 games

Cheaper? Including perfect replica controllers AND copies of the original software? (Otherwise you're suggesting a criminal act).

You're Wrong.

I still play mine regularly. Once you customize it a bit and get beyond the stock games (the thread in PC&VG has more info) it becomes a ton of fun. Some games don't age well but others are perfectly fine. A lot of the sprite art used back then holds up too.

Recently I replayed Romance of the Three Kingdoms II, Chrono Trigger and A Link to the Past.

Insanely easy to do, just do a search and theres plenty of info. Raspberry Pi is no comparission when with this you already have the hardware, controllers and super cool case. Even non-tech savy can put extra games on it.

I wish they had more of the NES classic. For some reason I am way more interested in revisiting those games. Crossing my fingers for the virtual console subscription service for the Switch that was hinted at a while back.

I play mine once or twice a week. I missed out entirely on SNES so most of these games are new to me. I would probably play it a lot more if it was hooked up to a TV that had a spare HDMI port, as it is I have to swap out my bluray

I believe Nintendo said they would start manufacturing and selling NES classics again mid-2018.
