NES Classic Mini: Yep, it’s still difficult as f**k to get one


Frustration abounds.

Update: Yep, EB’s website broke under the strain today. The retailer will try this all again tomorrow.

Original story: Another day, another seemingly impossible set of chances to pre-order a NES Classic Mini in Australia.

First, JB Hi-Fi took to Twitter to advise that its new allocation of NES Classic Minis had sold out before the retailer could even notify potential customers.

Fast forward to now, and EB Games’ website has crashed (again), under the weight of customers hoping to secure a pre-order.

Many customers were able to get an NES Classic Mini pre-order into their EB virtual shopping cart, but can’t get to checkout without EB’s website falling over.

Did you get lucky today, dear readers?

Thanks, Beau.
