Sadly, those that pre-ordered the SNES Classic from Walmart last week might be unhappy. The retailer is cancelling several pre-orders as there was a technical glitch.
A user on NeoGAF shared the message they received from Walmart about the orders of the system. It appears as if they processed more orders than what meets supply.
The message said: “Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition. As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall.
Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake.”
Hopefully Nintendo has been able to produce more units this time around. The NES Classic that came out last year was really rare and not many people had a chance to buy it as it kept selling out.
