Why would anyone think these are going to scalpers? At $100 each, these will sell for $150 at most, there's no profit there. No scalpers are going after this.

Target one made it to "preparing to ship."

Mine went to "preparing to ship" immediately after I ordered. It shipped a few minutes ago.

Because anything that ever gets sold out ever in the world = scalpers.

Ebay, man. Look at it. No one says every unit went to flippers, but several units did. 

Of course people are gonna be salty they missed out on this deal. 

Don't salt the salty

Believe it or not, just about everything mass produced ends up on eBay. Is everyone upset Pokemon Moon is available? What about Sun?

I'd go with X and Y, or Sun and Moon

Any specific reason why not ORAS?

 

I was leaning towards X and Y, though, because I saw that it has a much better quantity of the Gen 1 and 2 stuff. Sucks it means not getting the Gen 2 starters or legendaries, but rather have Charizard than Typhlosion anywho. The one major downside is that I hate the X and Y starters. I know I'd take Blaziken in ORAS, but I look at the XY starters and am disappointed. I usually take a Fire starter, but I'd probably go for Greninja over the other final forms, which look dumb.

 

But yeah, taking another look at those lists...can't even get Dratini in ORAS? The only families from Gen 1 XY misses are Rattata, Meowth, Koffing, Porygon, and Mew. That's a pretty easy group to live without. Other than the starters and legendaries, the only ones I see missing from Gen 2 in XY are Unown, Stantler, Misdreavus, and Porygon 2 (obviously). I can live without those.

 

So thanks for making that easy. Now, just gotta decide who gets which version. Was thinking I'd get them X and Y and myself OR or AS, but maybe not. If I do a B2G1 preowned order there, maybe I'll make one of those my free game and play it after. We're not going straight to Sun and Moon because they haven't played past Gen 2 and I haven't played past Gen 3.

Flipping an item at MSRP (especially one you can still purchase from retailers) is not a thing to complain about. 

That's as crazy as saying Mario 3D Land is worth the extra $50. XD

People can do whatever they want. They can try and sell for $500. if people buy it, oh well. 

 

Its not like there was not 3 or 4 opportunities to buy this in the past 12 hours.

That's fine, but that argument is still weak. The average shopper was asleep (with exception of Amazon.com), expecting these to be available today and tomorrow. 12 hours would be sufficient time yes, during daylight hours.

Is there going to be any discussion about the actual deal (or what's left of it) or only the scalping of it?

I got incredibly lucky with Toys R Us. Managed to get the black one before it was sold out. My girlfriend is going to be so happy. I almost let this one go. I had a feeling this would be the hot item of Black Friday.

They have them available at Fred Meyers right now in store, I just picked one up!

thanks for the heads up. my local fred meyer hadn't even opened their shipping cartons yet. they didn't notice it said street date 11/24 on the carton lol.

i just released my black 3ds from amazon back into the wild.

 

 

Good luck with this if you live an area where you have very little options available for B&M retail stores.
(And then further luck getting into said few options when they will be packed like crazy because they are one of few options)

Personally, i've got WalMart,Fred Meyer and GameStop.
But I feel like if I don't go first thing in the morning, i'm screwed.
It's such a hassle for something that should be more widely available in higher numbers.

Plus, I was looking forward to putting it on my ASC.

Hopefully the Amazon listing goes back up on the 25th. I don't know why they'd allow pre-orders randomly 2 days before the fact and not even email those who signed up to be emailed when it was available. (Checked my inbox. nothing) 

go to fred meyer now if you can

Yeah, I agree.  After all the fees, you'll only make 10 - 20 bucks at most which isn't alot.
