In June, it was reported that Nintendo was doubling their stock of the SNES Classic; in July, an apparent string of pre-order cancellations caused a great deal of confusion for people trying to buy the console.

The new version still has the original look and feel of the '90s home console, only smaller.

If you already have NES Classic or Wii U extension cables those should work just fine without the need to buy new ones.

Despite advising that they'd have stock in stores today, Big W have also put the SNES Classic Mini online for purchase this morning. Message boards and social media are full of people who were able to get SNES Classics without a problem... Consoles are now being sold online for quadruple the suggested retail price and Nintendo hasn't been clear on when more will be made available. If your favorites aren't on there, then you may find that your money is better-spent elsewhere, even if this is an adorable little console.

The SNES Classic Edition is sure to be a massive hit throughout the fall and into the holiday season, assuming Nintendo can get them to retailers fast enough. The SNES Classic comes with Star Fox 2, available in North America for the first time ever. (You'll need to play the first level of the original "Star Fox" game to unlock the sequel). When you think about how you will play the SNES Classic, there's a good chance that the couch is farther than that from your TV.

No longer will you have to begin your stories with, "You kids don't know how lucky you have it with video games these days", because after they take a turn on the SNES, they'll know firsthand.

The crown jewel in the Super Nintendo era, Super Mario World was the 2D platformer that set a very high bar few others managed to match.

Bob Puzon, GameStop's VP of Merchandising, has already released a statement about the success of the SNES Classic launch and the possibility of finding one on shelves in the near future...
