So... who got a NES Mini today?

Postby Davester » Fri Jun 29, 2018 8:21 pm

Well... I guess Nintendo released another batch of NES Minis today.
Good luck on getting one... sent the missus into Costco this morning while I was getting gas at about 11:30am and they just laughed at her.
Thanks for Patrick for posting the Costco online link this morning... (By noon, it was taken down.)

However, for sh!ts and giggles, I stopped by Walmart this afternoon, and they had some SNES Minis! Now I can find out what all the hype about Earthbound is about.

I pick one up yesterday at my local EB, they had lots. I checked RedFlagDeals before I went and the general consensus was each location had about 10-15 units.

Picked up two ...easily.
One from EB Scarborough @ Morningside. They also had lots.
The other EB in Pickering. Got both by noonish.

Today I went to Best Buy to get my Google Home so I asked.
Said they had many, but they were all reserved.
Was ideal to call by 9pm and see if any were unclaimed. (That was the Ajax Best Buy)

I also want to find out if it can be hacked. I'd like to do the entire US ROM Set for the NES.
Then just add my favorite SNES games to my SNES Mini.
Final Fight w/6-in-1
Bad Dudes vs DragonNinja
Punch-Out! Pi-Bartop
Nintendo DK 60-in-1(V)
Nintendo DK JR Mame(V)

Nintendo Mario Bros Mame + 2 X Aim Trak

I was able to pick one up from Wal-mart in Windsor on Thursday and they still had at least 2 in stock.

About time Nintendo brought these back out!

Wow... stopped by EB Games in Brantford today and they had one left.... it was hidden behind the counter and not visible. I had to ask the guy about it since they showed it in stock online.
He upsold me to a cable extender too. Dammit.

EB Games website shows a few stores in Ontario still have some stock.

P.S. I noticed that the Walmart website doesn't even list the NES Classic Edition anymore.
