PS4 Mini Wired Gamepad

If you've been holding out for a cheaper, more compact PlayStation 4 controller for the young one in your household, you're in luck.

If you never played Pokemon Ruby or Pokemon Sapphire, you probably don't know much about the 135 creatures added to the Pokemon universe when the games launched in Japan in 2002.

Want a Super NES Classic in 2 days? They’re in stock on Amazon and prices have dropped

Where To Buy Super NES Classic Online

Amazon still doesn't have any of its own Super NES Classic inventory, and there's no telling when the console will be back in stock. Of course when it is back in stock, it'll sell out instantly so you'll almost certainly miss it. If you want Nintendo's new retro console anytime soon, you can either stalk your local GameStop or pay a premium on Amazon, where prices from third-party sellers have actually dropped by almost $40 since the last time a decent amount of inventory was in stock.

Want one this week? Head over to the Super NES Classic page on Amazon and click "See All Buying Options." Then, on the left-hand side of the page, check the box next to Amazon's Prime logo. There, you'll find multiple sellers that have the SNES Classic in stock with free Prime shipping, and a couple more that are getting shipments tomorrow or Thursday, so you'll still receive your new console by the end of the week. Now that the cat's out of the bag, you had better hurry if you want one anytime soon!

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • The Super NES Classic Edition system has the original look and feel of the ’90s home console, only smaller. Plus, this one comes fully loaded with 21 games!
  • Get your hands on some of the best 2-player games of the era, including Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting.
  • The Super NES Classic Edition is compatible with the Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro accessories. Just plug it in and play
  • From your first ride on Yoshi to the final heart-pounding escape from Planet Zebes, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is pure 16-bit retro gaming perfection.
