Good luck finding a Nintendo SNES Classic.

Back in August, only a handful of gamers were able to buy the Super Nintendo Classic, the miniature version of the console thats proven quite popular.

Gamers across the nation expressed frustration that they couldnt order the device, as savvy internet users scooped them up before many had the chance to buy, according to Business Insider. Many online shoppers encountered errors when they tried to check out while those who went to physical stores found huge lines and limited merchandise.

The system, which costs a mere $80, comes preloaded with 21 SNES games, including Star Fox 2, the previously unreleased sequel to Star Fox.

The console is a follow up to the Nintendo Classic, which went on sale in 2016. Finding one of those devices was equally as difficult.

On Friday, AtGames provided another option for gamers, announcing four new consoles that are as throwback as they come, according to a press release sent to the Deseret News.

Starting today, people can buy the Atari Flashback Portable Game Player, the Sega Ultimate Portable Game Player, the Atari Flashback 8 Classic Game Console and the Sega Classic Game Console all available at Toys R Us for $59.99.

Oh, and there are HD versions available, too. The Atari Flashback 8 Gold and the Sega Genesis Flashback, as well as the Atari Flashback 8 Gold Activision Edition, will be available for $79.99.

All systems will come loaded with classic video games.

Want one of these? You can buy them at the following stores: Family Dollar, Dollar General, Kroger, Walgreens, Office Depot, Staples, Kohls, Urban Outfitter, Rite Aid, BJs, JC Penney, QVC, HEB and Bed, Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Gamestop and Toys R Us.
