Did you pick up the elusive SNES Mini today?

Nintendo is banking on nostalgia to drive sales during its release of the SNES classic.

"Super NES Classic Edition is ideal for any Nintendo fan, retro gamer or anyone who just wants to play some really fun video games", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo's senior vice president of Sales and Marketing.

"From the sounds of things, there are a lot more of these available than there were the NES classic edition last year" said Skwarek. It has a built-in rechargeable battery, too, and all the buttons you'd expect from the original SNES controller - available in both a Super NES colorway, and a Super Famicom look with its more colorful buttons.

GameStop sold out of its launch-day stock of Nintendo's Super NES Classic Edition systems, the company tells Glixel. The concole hits shelves today, and fans of the system are flocking to stores to pick up consoles before they're gone. As a bonus, the game package also includes a never-released sequel to "Star Fox", one of the first three-dimensional games developed by Nintendo.

Anyone in the know about Nintendo's doings is not only aware that the SNES Classic Edition is out as of today, but that it is also really hard to obtain.
