In Topic: Bestbuy Two Copies of Dragon Age Inquisition for $20

26 July 2015 - 05:50 AM

I get it but why are people making threads outside the main ad topic. It seems like a waste to me.


Some people don't click on every thread or have the time to do so, so it's nice to see a good deal at a quick glance. Super easy to just ignore and scroll past.

In Topic: Nintendo Store OOP MSRP Thread - Mario 64 DS, Pokemon White/Black 1 & 2

Well I didn't see them last night, either I was too tired to notice or they're going in and out of stock. As for the free shipping, a $100+ order isn't getting free shipping for me right now .__.


Yeah, the refurb of Punch Out has been up since Feb. at least, the selects is new as of last week, but hasn't been OOS yet.

Careful of those Kid Icarus AR cards, I bought some a while back and they aren't booster packs, they're all identical to the ones packed-in with the game.

Sucks when someone goes to bat for your argument but accidentally pisses all over it unknowingly.

I don't buy for one minute that double-cannon Samus was real. Those packages can be opened up with just enough heat, used to do it with Hot Wheels as a kid all of the time.

Amiibo's were Nintendo's idea, not ours, so they should've been prepared. And they aren't some pissant mom and pop company. None of this should have ever been an issue for them.

Of course these shortages are intentional, it's a marketing technique as old as time. A really shitty unethical one, but an old one nonetheless.


Lol, you're kidding me, right? Anyone who truly wanted these, pre-ordered wave 1-3 from Aug. through early Dec. last year. These were mostly considered a failure before their release because NO ONE was even talking about them. That bullshit double-cannon Samus is what suddenly skyrocketed demand for Amiibos. I think between that and the dock strikes, Nintendo actually was somewhat crippled to restock at that time.

Now, I'm not denying that Nintendo limits supply to create artificial demand, because it's a known business practice and they certainly partake. If it's unethical, then you're unethical for buying into it...luckily for you, it's not, it's smart business.
