#11835573 Mario Kart 8 + 4 Digital Titles $75 (Wii U + 6 Games for roughly $275)

Posted by nintendokingdom on 12 June 2014 - 01:38 AM

I don't approve of this. Your basically exploiting Nintendo and us preowned buyers have no chance of a free game. 

Hate to break it to you but Nintendo gets $0 out of the pre-owned purchase so Nintendo is definitely not intending for a free game to go to someone purchasing pre-owned.  The free game deal also only runs until July 31st so unless you got a pre-owned copy in this first two months (which you're most likely paying $50 - $55 for) you're not getting the free game anyways.

*Here is a copy & paste job that I previously used to explain why this isn't as evil as it initially seems.

I already own physical copies of every one of those games, so Nintendo didn't lose sales on the digital copies...I was never going to purchase them digitally anyways. Nintendo actually just sold 3 more Mario Kart 8's at a retailer from me doing this which Nintendo already assumes the free digital game is going with each copy. The sales numbers increase for Mario Kart 8, even if they're padded from that promotion it helps Nintendo to some degree. I don't know what outweighs what, the fact I'm buying digital copies for free that I already owned physically or Nintendo has 3 more physical sales of MK8, I think the MK8 sales should be more significant. Obviously everyone who takes advantage of this won't have all the physical copies like me, but again Nintendo should account for one copy of Mario Kart having one of those digital games with it.

Best Buy is selling games and taking the trade in at the prices they have determined. That is their decision. They're not going to have any difficulty selling used copies of Mario Kart 8, with the history of past Mario Kart games they have held their used value higher than most other games. This shouldn't be a title that will be in the bargain bin used, it will be highly sought after for years...especially if Nintendo releases DLC for it.

Plymouth Target smacked me upside the head for trying it, but the Minnetonka and Lake Street Targets are still working for Minnesota CAG's.

Yeah, at this point people should just accept that Nintendo is ran by morons.  And worse morons that got cocky by the dumb shit luck fluke that was the Wii and thought they could keep doing everything ass backwards and still sell big numbers.  Crappy online structure, no account system despite promoting digital games and the VC a ton, a half assed rewards program with odd pricing, first party games that rarely drop in price.  They're just incredibly consumer unfriendly and behind the times.  You either put up with it because you love their games or you don't.  I'm falling more and more into the later category as I'm getting tired of the games, and thus not willing to put up with all their backwardness or buy their underpowered hardware etc. anymore.  I still have a 3DS, but I really can't see what they'd do to ever get me to buy another piece of their hardware.  I'd rather see them fail and go third party or sell off their IPs personally.


Yeah, they should really get with the times and emulate Sony or Microsoft.

Better than hearing about how much of an asshole Donna in accounting is because she's sleeping with the boss.

#11552698 Free Digital Pokemon Y or Pokemon X on Club Nintendo by Registering Hardware...

I'm just going to say it. There are way to many people in this thread complaining that a promotion meant to encourage new purchases of 3DS XL's and 2DS' and some software won't apply to a past purchase.


Quite frankly, if you run and register all your CN codes right away at this point it is kind of your own fault. They do these kind of promos periodically and there isn't much of a need to have all your codes on right away (barring the bonus 10 coins for newer games).


People talking about dedicating 5 hours or more to getting these deal because they feel ripped off that when they got their system and software as part of some deal a month and a half ago (or more) this offer didn't exist... sometimes I wonder what percentage of people on here actually have jobs.

#11529865 Bravely Default CE - SOLD OUT [Amzn, BB, GS] (3DS, 2/7/2014)

Posted by Boss on 15 February 2014 - 07:50 PM

Here is my story hopefully it will help others see the errors of their ways.


I was one of the early preorders of this game from Amazon.

A few weeks before release people started saying their delivery date was 2/11.

Someone suggested "updating" your shipping with the same shipping speed (2day) and it will switch to 2/7. It did for most people.

I on the other hand did not want to risk getting placed at the back of the line or having issues with a order that was already going to be fulfilled. (Why tamper with it and risk errors or issues for a few days?).

Anyways it seems everyone who got 2/7 release day shipping got it shipped in a padded envelope and took the risk of it being crushed.

I finally picked mine up today from my PO Box, the package was delivered 2/10 but I dont get to go there during the week (one day earlier than Amazon's 2/11 estimate). They shipped it in a nice box with lots of padding. Needless to say the CE was in excellent condition. Amazon corrected their padded envelope ways after the initial 2/7 batch complained about issues, and luckly I was in the 2/11 batch and got a great copy.


Now if you want to draw conclusions, lets say they were setup for 2/7 shipping but because of a sudden influx of orders now shipping for 2/7 they had to cut corners to get all these out. So instead of shipping in a box and padding it they just dropped it in an envelope and shipped it to meet the release date. I'll leave you with that...


Was it worth it CAGers? You decide.

Best Buy didn't have my copy and I said they should give me a 55" Sony 4K tv as compensation for my frustration.

This is nice


[Zelda case pictures]

Dang, that's slick.


Thinking about the cheap clear case, but would like a case that protects the hinges too.  Might go with a Hori case, maybe one of those themed ones.

I got the clear Hori TPU case in Friday. I really like it; it's a soft plastic, almost Tupperware like material. Makes me feel a little better about using my Zelda XL.

Am I able to preorder any game that they have a card for and receive this discount? Or is it only if certain games are preordered?

In my experience, some games don't work. There'll be signage on the pegs of the cards that do work.

If MS keeps this up, I might never buy 360 games from anywhere else.  I could wait a whole year just to snag games at these prices.
