When EB Games took pre-orders for the Nintendo Mini NES Classic earlier this week, the website crashed under the sheer volume of traffic from eager buyers. This happened two days in a row, leaving a mob of angry customers in its wake. With all the hype around the classic console, you'd think EB Games would have expected the level of traffic to its online store and worked to ensure its website was reliable. We take a look at where EB Games might have gone wrong and what businesses can learn from this debacle.
If you managed to buy a Nintendo Classic Mini NES from EB Games today, you were definitely in the minority. The website crashed within minutes due to the surge in traffic which left many customers unable to complete their orders. (There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.)

Need some new computer games to get you through the summer? EB Games is getting rid of its old stock just in time for Christmas with a brace of PC titles selling for a single dollar! The deal also extends to official strategy guides and PC accessories - including headsets, controllers and mice. Here are the links to all the best deals.
It's not long until Christmas and there's nothing quite like getting a shiny new console under your tree (or in your stocking, depending on foot size). If Microsoft's Xbox One has been on your mind, then EB Games' upcoming $298 deal for a 1TB unit, including Halo 5 and the Master Chief Collection, might be exactly what you need.
If you buy the Nexus 7 Android tablet through Google, you'll pay a delivery charge. If you buy it from a retailer, you'll pay a price that's equivalent to what Google charges with the delivery charge. But if you order it through EB Games and select in-store pickup, you can save the shipping charge, bringing the cost down to under $300 for the 16GB model.
