SNES Classic preorders cancelled: heads up if you bought from Walmart

If you preordered the SNES Classic from Walmart, take heed: Walmart is cancelling those preorders, leaving behind ample lamenting and gnashing of teeth. The company recently sold out of the models, as preorders went quickly, and you'd be reasonable in expecting that to be the cause -- that is, the lack of available units.
