Good luck gone bad
Last Friday, a lot of people felt a rush of relief when they locked down an SNES Classic pre-order through Walmart’s website. Now they’re feeling a pang of panic. Walmart just canceled all those pre-orders.
In an email to everyone who ordered an SNES Classic, Walmart explained that the page went live on accident. “Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake,” the email reads. The full letter is in the gallery below.
And, we’re back to square one for everyone in the United States. No one has a pre-order secured and the playing field is level again. The hunt continues.
