But more are on the way. It's smaller and comes with over 20 games pre-installed, so you can play it right out of the box - though you won't be able to play your old SNES cartridges on this new device. "Once we do, our customers will be the first to know!" Recognizing how massively popular this sleek console had become, the company said it would ship more SNES Classics through 2018.

Nintendo is re-releasing The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES. Most notably, it also includes Star Fox 2, a game which was completed but never officially released publicly. The console may be available at the following websites: Amazon, Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Toys R Us and Thinkgeek.

Video game nerds, people who are stuck in 1992, and a whole lot of other people have been lining up since Thursday to get the newest video game console. At a Target on Marks and West Shaw in Northwest Fresno, they sold out of their 62 units by mid-morning. That means, of course, missing out of the authentic early '90s experience getting up and handling the system proper if you want to change what game you're playing. Amazon's weird Treasure Truck, which drives around big cities selling rare items, is offering SNES Classics in New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and other hubs. A teardown of the SNES Classic has revealed that the console reuses the same technology and processing components are found in the NES Classic.

As predicted, it still was not enough to satisfy demand and not everyone got a SNES Classic today. But you can argue that's perhaps part of the charm.

So the real draw of the Super NES Classic is nostalgia. It quickly sold out while becoming one of the hottest holiday gifts.
