Almost every store I went to today had 12-20 of these today, I hope the scalpers (like Troy’s dad) got their balls stuck in the sand

Scott,

Were they doing the ticket system to get them or could you just go in and pick them up?

Targets just had them in their case and GameStop had them behind the counter

I might go out and see if I could pick up one or two today.

If I don’t find the, today, patience will pay off since they are supposed to be making a lot more.

Got one at Walmart in the middle of the day yesterday like it was no big deal. They had a few of them locked up and I think I saw a couple more cases that had yet to be stocked.

May buy one if I happen upon them.  I do want one but Nintendo kinda pissed me off on this.

I'm conflicted because I don't necessarily need to spend the money on this, but the fact that the Switch will never have a Virtual Console makes this more desirable

Crap, and I’m in the woods for a week.  I hope they’re still available when I get back to civilization.  I suppose I’ll check amazon first.

I wouldn’t worry too much, Rob.  They are supposed to finally be making enough to match demand.

Thanks Matt, that’s good to know.  Looks like they’re $92 on Amazon right now.  Are they still $59.99 like before or are they priced more like the SNES Classic was?

My search ended quickly.  My father in law and nephew went into town today and easily picked one up.  For once waiting paid off.

Patience has once again paid off.  I found one today at a Walmart near work.

Now I need to find a second one as a belated birthday gift for my sister.
