But more are on the way.

Pre-orders for the SNES Classic have been hard to come by, as was to be expected given the supply issues with the NES Classic.

Nintendo's SNES Classic started shipping to buyers this week. But customers shouldn't worry. Less lucky was suburban Chicago, which had been entirely cleared out by lunchtime - sorry Charlie - as had most of the stores we lucked out on this morning. (You'll need to play the first level of the original "Star Fox" game to unlock the sequel). The SNES Mini promises to be even more popular by featuring such beloved games as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid.

Nintendo is re-releasing the Super Nintendo in a new format that connects to your HDTV. It's also powered by USB (although the AC adapter is not included) and comes bundles with two wired Super NES Classic controllers.

Unlike modern gaming systems, the mini-consoles don't connect to the internet and therefore, players can't download - and spend money on - new games over time.

Amazon also turned towards physical shopping experience and sold the SNES Classic through their Treasure Truck service. A teardown of the SNES Classic has revealed that the console reuses the same technology and processing components are found in the NES Classic. Both of them are a little more expensive than the NES Mini previous year. "So I always wanted to get the one before it, and i was really excited when I heard that it was ocming out".

Playing With Super Power is one part history book, one part PRIMA guide. But with the NES Classic set to rerelease next summer, Nintendo might just be riding that classic console gravy train for the foreseeable future.
