    I can't if I wanted to. They were not stocked properly at all where I live. My local GameStop apparently only had 10 available and about 30 people wanted them. Walmart didn't even get a shipment. Apparently it is like this everywhere. So, yeah, way to drop the ball like you did with Amiibos, Nintendo.

    12 at a Walmart in my girlfriends hometown I guess. Her brother wanted to get one and they'd all been sold before the store even opened.

    It wouldn't surprise me one bit of they're under producing just to make them seem more popular than they are and drive up interest.

    This has always been Nintendo's approach.

    "No way! This thing sold out in less than two minutes!"

    That's because there was only one in the shop and that was the time it took to ring it through the till.

    Both Targets downtown didn't have them either, nor was there any type of display.

    Ah yes, the classic Nintendo false scarcity market plan.

    I doubt we'd even get this thing if they didn't need some kind of console to remind people that Nintendo can make successful home consoles, after the WiiU has been such a flop. Something to whet appetites before the Switch drops and maybe make a little money.

    Target's ad for this week advertises the Classic Console. They might be getting some in.
