Gamers in Australia have at least one more chance to buy the NES Classic before Christmas Day. Target will be selling it on its official website this coming Monday.
Vooks showed a direct message from Target Australia and they informed the website that stock for the NES Classic will be sold in a specific time frame on Monday December 12th.
The message said: “We’ve been bursting at the seams to give you more info on this! The item will be available approximately from 8am AEDST Monday 12/12. This will be sold online only so make sure you’re on your computer, set-up with a Target Online account and ready to make your purchase! Don’t forget, the item is not secured until the payment is finalized. Good luck!”
Sadly, Target Australia is only allowed to ship items in Australia only. If you live elsewhere, you won’t be able to buy the item. This might be the last chance for Australians to buy the NES Classic for a Christmas present for a loved one. EB Games Australia said a few weeks ago that they won’t be getting new stock until 2017.
You have to have a lot of luck if you are able to buy the NES Classic online. Usually the servers aren’t able to handle the huge demand. Not to mention they sell out quickly as you are competing with lots of other buyers and even scalpers that want to get their hands on it too.
The NES Classic is one of the most sought after items this year. Lots of old-school gamers want to relive their childhood while younger gamers want to experience what games were like in the ’80s. There are 30 classic Nintendo games for you to try out. Sadly, no additional other video games will be added to the console so you’re stuck with the initial 30.
