PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

  • Our Argos store checker links directly with the Argos system. With the current demand for the Nintendo Mini NES, reservations are currently getting snapped up almost immediately.
  • During stock shortages, Argos rarely put stock up for Home Delivery. It will go straight to the stores.
  • Do NOT rely on receiving an email alert to find you stock. We will send emails on a case by case basis. It is pointless us sending thousands of emails if a retailer only has a few units of stock which get snapped up almost immediately. Just leads to further frustration.
  • Please do not swap Argos reservation numbers. We can get into trouble for this. If you don't need it, don't get it. Offending Posts WILL be DELETED and user accounts suspended without warning.
  • Please do not attempt to sell Hatchimals on this forum. There is another well known website for that.

I won't, no matter how much I want it, or thecr*ppy alternative that I may have to come up with heheheh, I just don't like greedy resellers. One thing is to buy something, then find you don't need it and sell it. Other is to contribute to stock disappearance to take advantage of it all. Stay strong, new stock will appear, I'm sure Smile

Im fed up of wanting to get one, me & my partner want to play the old games but i wanted to play it on xmas day with my kids aswell its just nice to have it on that day but if i have to il wait till next yr i will il never buy it off ebay cuz i dont think its worth paying that price. It says £249 on game are they having a laugh.

I agree mine are 14 & 11 and they are wondering what the game is like and i love donkey kong we used to play it for hours. Ive just bought my daughter the portable sega megadrive with 30 old games on it, was only £20 from argos, i think she'll like that. I wanted to pre order the nintendo classic but i had a load of love 2 shop vouchers and no money & it had to be ordered online in cash. I dunno whether to believe the shops if they have the game it feels like theyre lying to me lol i dont like it.

This is going to sound controversial but I spent ages trying to get one and managed to buy it on Argos. I have played it a couple of times. I feel it wasnt worth all the hassle and hype. Yes its good to play super mario 3 again but there isn't enough decent games on there for the hype.

chilly64 chilly64 - 12/12/2016 21:39 - Report
It's not that I'm not impressed. It's a great little thing but, it's not worth any more than 50 quid. ebay prices are nuts and if people pay these prices then, they're just encouraging scalpers to do this every Christmas! If you've got 150 quid to spend, I'd recommend buying a GPD XD. It's a handheld that can play all these games and much more and connect to your tv. It's great.

guest176454 guest176454 - 12/12/2016 22:02 - Report
I agree. Its not worth more than 50 quid. Wont be surprised if it drops to 30 quid in 6.months time. Also ebay sellers will drop their prices after Christmas. Let them sweat over having 10 units in stock and cant sell them. They are the reason you can't buy her one

Thanks guys, if there was lots in stock no obe would be asking & Mattglos you know what i was in sains today and they said there was 2 instock for £69.99 i said no they are £49.99 so i thought thats not it then oh well ive already skint myself dry with presents and could do with buying it from argos as i have a voucher i need to rid so im not going to pay £70 its ridiculous, why is it more the money grabbers lol im not too fussed about it i just like all the games on it really.

I managed to get one from argos in bromborough a couple of weeks ago. Got some extension cab,es and a second controller off amazon, hubby and i he been playing it every night once the kids go to bed! It takes seconds to set uo. Its pretty basic games, but our 4 kids ( and us! ) are going to love it. We have nevere had a games console as a family so they will be delighted. I tink if kids are used to the more modern type of console they may be disappointed in the graphics, but nice and basic as a first console. Xx

I'm gonna wait, the whole reason I want it is because it's a reasonable price! Plus after all this hoo haa, I'll probably find owning one an anti climax! I suppose it's different for people with kids though. Nintendo sure messed this one up!

I'm not a fan of the resellers but I feel Nintendo should get more of the blame. They didn't produce enough units and then keep giving vague answers about stock. Never a date, just 'they're coming'. Very poor

Ordered mine on the 26/11 fast track. Date given to 1/12 to 9/12. Been ringing everyday to see it's arrived. Got the date expended to the 15th. Rang customer services today to be told its in store and he will reserve it. Went straight to Argos and it's not the right item even tho the description given was a nes mini. Store manager informed me a box has gone missing from delivery and it must have been on there. Now told not coming into business till the 6/1/17. To top it off I popped into Argos the beginning of the week for a member of staff to say they sold six earlier in the day from the store. I'm absolutely 😤

I bet anything Argos get it in again before Christmas. Its a bit unusual that they have taken it off the system but it is still there on the computers in the store ready for when they put it back on to the websites. They are being bery quiet about it especially because of the cancelled orders that were there. Thats partly why they took it off the system. Most chances are it will be here this weekend.

If its delivery probably not as a lot of deliverys were cancelled and argos dont usually send out deliverys of items that are sought especially coupled with the fact that thew supply is quite low. It probably worked because it was left there from when it was in stock. It might just end up getting cancelled.=

Hi Matt. What makes u think that the console is due back in stock over the weekend. Is this from a reliable source where u got this information from. So argos are going to get this in stock again before christmas. Also what about the original controllers.

MattGlos MattGlos - 08/12/2016 01:05 - Report
Argos have at least 5 distribution centres and diff ones get deliveries on diff days, so for example there is one near Bridgewater that supplies all the stores in the south west etc... I know at least 1 depot is due to get stock on Friday and then it takes a few days to get to the stores, I believe the depot getting the stock covers oxford area but not sure which other stores will be covered by this depot

Hi Matt. Sorry to bother you again. Why have Argos actually taken the listing of the nes classic mini console off their website. To me that makes me think they are not getting any more in for a while. Why would they do that.

MattGlos MattGlos - 08/12/2016 13:58 - Report
its ok i dont mind, i got mine but happy helping people when i know stuff, They took it off their website as their system kepy hiccuping and offering reserved stock as available, to reserve they took an immediate payment, 5 mins later the system realised the stock was already reserved and auto cancelled the order and automatically issued a refund, this meant customers were out of pocket for a few days as the money came out and then went back in a few days later and basically it caused them headaches, also if they dont advertise it then they wont keep getting asked about availability. its easier to just take it off and put it back on when available

The product is still on their system but removed from their website. It might be the stock they get in this weekend is only orderable instore. At the end of the day think of it like this its basically not a product they need to promote or push and if anythung it's causing them problems with the volume of people asking for it to the ratio of units they do get. Better to tell the customer no more stock then to say yes we are getting 5 units in for the 100 people wanting it as that's 95 people to turn away when it's already a busy time of year

Try late at night, seems to be lots more stores with stock on and off, you have to be very quick fingered though and get to the payment page ASAP. Took me maybe 10 attempts to actually complete the order after adding available stock to trolley only to be told on the next page that stock is unavailable for collection. Keep trying!
