The SNES Classic edition is becoming a little bit tricky to get hold of. If you want one in time for Christmas, you could have a difficult task on your hands. There have been rumours that Nintendo just isn’t keeping up with demand, so it’s going to be even harder than getting hold of the SNES mini. Since it was released on the 29th September, the stock has been patchy, to say the least. It has gone beyond being a marketing trick – it seems like Nintendo just do not have enough consoles.
There are some stores that are still getting the console in waves, so do keep an eye out. You would be very lucky to get one now before Christmas, though. One shopping site has even decided to run a SNES lottery, entering people’s names into a draw to see who is going to be able to buy a console.
