Nintendo Classic Mini NES Pre-Orders Start Again Today

If you missed out on the first round of pre-orders for the Mini NES, then today's another chance to jump on the classic Nintendo train.

Update (12:07 PM): Surprise! The EB site is down:

They're also telling users via Twitter that they're working on getting the site back up. Keep trying, people.

The official EB Games Twitter account announced late on Friday that pre-orders would be opening today, and over the weekend they began officially marketing things on their website as well.

If you want to get in on the second shipment of Nintendo Classic Mini NES consoles, you'll be able to pre-order through here from noon (or 12:00 PM) Sydney time. For those not in Sydney, Hobart or Melbourne: it all kicks off at 11:30 AM in Adelaide, 10:00 AM in Perth, and 11:00 AM in Queensland.

To increase your chances, you'll also probably want to create an EB World account. It's not necessary, but at least that way you can have your shipping and billing details saved which will speed up the whole buying process a lot faster. And given that the second shipment of Mini NES units aren't expected to last longer than a few minutes, you'll want to move quickly.

Again, it'll cost you $99.95 for the Mini NES sans shipping. Accessories and USB cables longer than your pinky finger are not included.


    I they make enough of these things it could outsell the Wii U.

    JB has preorders available now, just got an order in (delivery only), would asume eb will get hammered at 12pm

    I got an order in through JB hi fi when it came up about 30 minutes ago, in store staff had said they'd have limited numbers back on their site between 9 and 10 this morning. Page is already gone on their site now so i guess they sold out again.

    I'm tot going to bother now, it's too much effort just for some nostalgia.

    If it's going to be this difficult to buy then I don't think they deserve my money.

    12.0pm and the eb site is not working

    Made it to the payment section of the check out so far. Getting there slowly

    Well the eb site only took 20mins to go offline after struggling to load.
