Of course. Of course, it was too good to be true. I happened to be at the ready when Walmart announced its pre-order of the Nintendo SNES Classic Edition, and I managed to get my pre-order processed.
But today, I got notified (and so did everyone else) that this SNES pre-order was a technical glitch and therefore all pre-orders from Walmart have been cancelled. The email reads:
Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake.
Another email reiterated the cancellation:
Thanks for your recent order. We’re really sorry, but the items shown below were canceled due to a system error that kept us from processing orders. We’re working to fix the error and hope to have a solution soon.
All I can simply say is that Walmart you suck. You too Nintendo since it seems like you’re forcing Walmart to cancel the (successful) pre-orders. Terrible, terrible customer service.
