After being completely bombarded by customers desperate to pre-order a Mini NES, EB Games has given up the ghost.
Its site is in a bad way, and it wants to do this all over again tomorrow.
Wow. People really want these things.
EB Games just posted the following on its Facebook page:
In preparation for the Mini NES December shipment, we massively increased our server space to account for 30,000 people, which is twice as much as our previous site traffic record.
Today, that amount was exceeded due to unprecedented demand for this console.
We are doubling our server space to accommodate anywhere up to 60,000 simultaneous customers on the website. This item will be available at 12PM Sydney time tomorrow at the following link: http://bit.ly/2enuIU1
Stock for this item will be extremely limited.
Good luck people.
