I just got an email that mine shipped!

I did as well.  No estimated delivery date yet on the UPS site, but at least it is apparently shipping.  Hopefully the UPS guy doesn't leave the box in a snowbank at the end of my driveway like he did with the MM3DS CE game bundle...

This is so true! The hype of the LE was more to push the base core audience over the top and buy now. I also held out on the Wii U until the WW edition and I'm glad I did.

I said pages agp hype gets you eye balls product gets you sells. It never makes sense to hype what people can't get . Nintendo of America might be (see should be) kicking themselves right now for missing out on margin that went to scalpers. Now of course that all depends on corporate politics, but still lots of people made money that should have went to their coffers.

I hate to think that if all of the resale profits from systems and amiibos had gone to Nintendo because they were capable of providing adequate stock, it could have helped fund some "unprofitable" development, such as a Mother 3 localization or Mother 4. Oh well.

So I received my MM N3DS from Gamestop today. The box has a HUGE dent in the side like a heavy metal bar landed on it. I open the shipping box and the same dent is in the package. Gamestop put ZERO packing material in the box. Not even a single piece of bubble wrap.

 

So what are the chances Gamestop would have stock set aside for exchanges?

zero consistency

The proof wasn't about you lol

 

Also, I remember in 2012 when I pre-ordered Halo 4, I got release day shipping and Best Buy didn't ship it our for a while after. I don't think I got the game until the week after the release, and they gave me my money back on the extra shipping charge. So I guess Best Buy has a history of these things. Hopefully people start getting theirs shipped out in larger numbers today.

Agreed. I will probably try to cancel my order anyway I can if it doesn't ship today. I will probably just try to get a black N3DS, or wait for a different special edition.

You and others who had theirs shipped, would you please give the rest of us the time you placed your order, or the time stamp on your order confirmation email?

Seems like a lot of East coast orders are shipping, hopefully some Midwest ones do too.

That rep, in my mind, confirmed BB's long standing practice of NOT going by the people first in line is still happening.I remember there being people going nuts over a CE like 5 years ago because of this.

In that case, the difference wasn't order time, it was order DAY. People who ordered day one didn't get it, people you ordered days later did.

Wish they would just send their "We suck, here is a gift card" email already.

It's technically been only one full business day since release date.  We might get an update today finally.  If Best Buy was not going to be getting our preorders in, I would think we'd find out about any gift card cancellation email soon enough.  I'm just going to be patient for now and wait it out.

No movement on mine yet, if I don't get it I guess I'll just wait around for another special edition if at all.  I wasn't really 100% sold on the New XL model anyway so if I'm not getting a Zelda one I guess I'll probably just wait to see if the regular size New model ends up coming out here.
