The Argos price for the SNES Classic Mini is £10 cheaper than Game and Amazon UK were charging on Monday.

Current listings on eBay for the SNES Classic Mini are priced around the £200 mark.
In a statement to USgamer, Nintendo said: "We aren't providing specific numbers, but we will produce significantly more units of Super NES Classic Edition than we did of NES Classic Edition.
