This topic on the Switch board shows that Wal-Mart has released an official statement acknowledging their mistake, but no one can seem to agree if they are going to do a second round of pre-orders or if Friday was It? Surely they aren't going to keep the ones from Friday right?

Some people are having them canceled on them.

I know mine did too that's why I'm asking. Multiple people including me have asked on Wal-Marts help chat about it and have been told that they are doing a new round of pre-orders next week. I want to believe but. .

I got the email from Walmart about 20 minutes ago and I also purchased two. One for me and one for my brother for Christmas. My brother may end up purchasing one though so if that happens and I don't have anyone else to gift it to (my brother in law possibly), then I'll sell it to someone for the price that I paid for it. I don't want to screw anyone over or promote this scalping nonsense.

Walmart still has stock it looks like. I'm surprised it hasn't wiped already. They must have pretty good supply.

Yeah, I'm not seeing the value in a glorified emulator and a bunch of roms of games from two decades ago. Nintendo all about that absolute bulls***, at most this should cost $40 and that's even a stretch.

For those that bought more than one, any worries of getting one order canceled? I remember them doing that during the amiibo craze

Apparently you were allowed two per order. My brother noticed this. I was in such a frenzy to get my order in that I missed out on dat maximum profit.

Cancellation notices incoming.
Crazy to think that's for the whole country. Wonder just how many were available.

If you didn't get one get on that Amazon and GameStop list. At least 2 more good chances to get one.

The game is ok, but the worst "Mario humor" in any game ever just makes it not enjoyable to play

When do they drop on Amazon and GameStop, is that public knowledge?

I just happened to be checking my email when the Walmart alert email appeared. Compete dumb luck. I was ahead of Slickdeals and several other Twitter accounts that alert me regarding games and sneaker releases. So keep an eye on your email. If Walmart did the preorder now, Amazon can't be too far behind.

This means I'll have to stay up until 4 am again for Prime. Fuuuuuuu-

Still remember having to wake up at 7:00 after staying up until 4:00 am for the Switch pre order. Waiting paid off I guess, but hot damn was that a bad day.

Which is a better investment if those are the only two games from the small selection you're interested in. 

And while not together, SMRPG is on several VCs, and Earthbound is on the 3DS and Wii U.
Irony 2 days ago#44
Never said those were the only ones I was interested in. They're just the most requested.

Does anyone remember if the NES Classics all went for pre-order on the same day close together? Is it worth staying up and checking or is there a chance Amazon/Best Buy/ etc. wont put theirs up until Monday or some s***?

If Amazon does it the way they've been doing Amiibo, you won't be able to pre-order one. You'll have to check the page at about 1:00 PM EST on release day.
