i ordered 3 of them as there was not even a limit on how many you could order on the first pre order wave.

its like all things in life, if you cant buy it and there is a demand for it, prices will rise. its like that with everything in life. not just nintendo minis
I tried, EB site crashed for the day, and I couldn't be bothered going through it after that. All that effort of constant refreshes during working hours.

So glad I didn't hesitate with my preorder and forced my bro to put his one in too. Looks like both JB and EB have closed the pre-order now. Not surprised considering how popular the mini nes was!

This is actually the first thing that I've ever actually pre-ordered.

And if it wasnt for the artificial shortages by nintendo as proved by the NES classic, I wouldnt have pre-ordered and just gotten one after release.

Whether they still have stock to allocate or just taking pre orders anyways to lock in a sale is the question.

I would guess the latter aka PS4 style
