The Nintendo Classic Mini NES Just Killed Target’s Website

Target’s online store is currently down for some customers. Target Australia started selling the coveted Nintendo Classic Mini NES today at 8am AEDT on its online store and it seems some people can’t get the website to load. After killing EB Games’ website (not once, but twice), it appears the Nintendo Classic Mini NES has done the same to Target’s online store.

It seems the Target Australia website has suffered the same fate as EB Games’ online store during the time it was selling the Nintendo Classic Mini NES. The amount of traffic to the Target online store has overwhelmed the site, leaving some visitors unable to access it.

Target hasn’t released any statement through social media regarding the website failure. Some users have reported that the Nintendo Classic Mini NES is already sold out through the retailer.
