On the back of my other thread I think DS would love a NES mini, but they are sold out everywhere - well apart from on eBay and Amazon where sellers are charging over twice their retail price. Anyone know where I can track one down or have heard when/if they might be back in stock?

I just saw that Tesco had them back in stock, (on Facebook) I haven't checked though.

Tesco had some in in the early hours of this morning and I slept through shock. I've registered with stock finder but still no luck yet. Anyone got any leads?

I thought I had bought one from Very on Tuesday morning only to find out today, when I checked my account, that they have refunded my payment and cancelled the order angry. Very hadn't bothered to email and tell me. I had to ring them to get confirmation. Keeping an eye out but stock goes pretty much instantly. I definitely won't be buying from ebay/Amazon sellers at the insane inflated prices they are asking. Just going to have to keep my fingers crossed.

I ordered one on a whim directly from the Nintendo website and it arrived within a couple of days, might be worth keeping an eye on there too if you don't already. I didn't realise how sought after they were at the time.

Not in stock but keep checking smyths too

Argos had them this morning got one at 6am

www.checkstocknow.com is also useful
they are popping up for collection in argos every now and then

I ordered mine on a pre order months ago from Smyths but when I was on their website a few days ago to try and check on its progress they had updated our local store (if you click on the collect in store option) to say that they would be available around 28th Nov so maybe give your local store a call?

SirSidneyRuffDiamond Sun 27-Nov-16 12:35:07

I managed to get one from Argos at 04.00 this morning (as long as they don't cancel the order on me). Should be in store to collect on Thursday. Keeping everything crossed now grin

Has anyone found an additional controller available anywhere?

AveEldon Sun 27-Nov-16 12:52:25

Argos had them online again just now

Bobsmum02 Sun 27-Nov-16 12:59:02

Foxinabox - I'm also looking for an additional controller! Might have to resign myself to getting on after Xmas when the fuss dies down!

RumAppleGinger Sun 27-Nov-16 13:02:22

Fox I got an additional controller from amazon last week for £9.99 delivered. A friend managed to get one direct from the Nintendo website. Same thing just keep checking.

RumAppleGinger Sun 27-Nov-16 13:08:08

Just checked, same seller still has them on amazon but at £14.95.

FoxInABox Sun 27-Nov-16 13:26:02

I've just bought a two pack with 6ft cables- the included one has a very small cable- not official product but hopefully will be okay. I contacted Nintendo to ask them last month but they weren't very helpful. They were £14.99 for the two pack on eBay.

Please can someone tell me what AC adapter they have got for the classic mini? It says you need to buy one to go with it but doesn't specify what kind.

I'm also waiting on mine being available at smyths this week... fingers crossed!

SirSidneyRuffDiamond Tue 29-Nov-16 13:55:10

Well I got an email telling me I could collect the NES from today. I didn't quite believe it, but there it was, on the shelf waiting for me. The woman who served me was so shocked that I'd managed to get one as they've had so many enquiriesgrin

AveEldon Tue 29-Nov-16 14:10:48

Not tried it yet but we were going to use an iPhone charger plug

GizmoFrisby Tue 29-Nov-16 14:22:04

What adapter do u need? I'm confused hmm

SirSidneyRuffDiamond Tue 29-Nov-16 14:52:37

We plan on using one of our iPad/iPhone charger plugs for the adaptor too.
