The SNES Classic edition has been popping up on retail sites for the last few weeks around the world, and have been selling fast despite Nintendo saying that they have upped the production of the SNES Classic Edition compared to the NES. The first US retailer to allow pre-orders was Walmart, and like the other online stores worldwide, it was out of stock in less than an hour.
Many people in the US had been waiting for pre-orders of the SNES Classic Edition to go up, and no actual announcement was even made. It just went up, was found, and then it spread like crazy to the point were “SNES Classic” trended worldwide on Twitter.
There was also so much traffic on the product page that it had actually crashed, and as of writing this news story, the product page is still down, and it currently looks like this.
It looks like some orders have been unfortunately cancelled, with some tweeting about it happening.
Mine was already cancelled by Walmart. Not even gonna bother trying anymore since I have no hope of getting one now. T^T

Pre-ordered an SNES from @Walmart fast enough to be charged 2x, but not fast enough, as they cancelled my order & kept my $. What the fuck?!
