Best Buy is holding a one-day event for the NES Classic at over a thousand of its brick-and-mortar stores on December 20 when they will have a limited restocking of the nostalgic console. Best Buy is treating it exactly like Black Friday, meaning they'll pass out tickets for the item to those in line, and you can only purchase one console per person.
If you've been unsuccessful in securing an NES Classic for someone's Christmas gift, this may be your best chance. It might also be a long night standing in line, as Best Buy says it's been their most-asked-about item. If you miss out — stores will only hand out as many tickets as they have units — might I suggest choosing something from our Holiday Gift Guide that doesn't sell out so quickly?
