SNES Mini pre-orders is certainly a sensitive subject at the moment. Last year, fans trying to get hold of NES Mini stock were often left disappointed and, although Nintendo have vowed to increase production this time around, things aren’t looking much easier with regards to the SNES Mini. Demand for the SNES Mini is undoubtedly high and GameStop’s Senior Merchandising Director Eric Bright says, that the new console could be even more popular than last year’s console.
“The amount of demand that we’ve seen on the website was certainly greater than the NES Classic when it first got out,” he says. “More and more people want it, and there were a lot of people that did not get an NES, so they’re trying their hardest to get an SNES.”
Bright paints a clear picture of just how much people want the SNES Mini. As soon as pre-orders went live on their website, allocations filled up extremely quickly. “We sold out in under ten minutes,” he adds. “I want to say that we sold out in 8 minutes.”
