Absolute fucking joke. If ANY COMPANY IN THE WORLD should have a system that can handle a large number of people trying to place orders, it's Amazon.

 

I don't expect to necessarily get my hands on an extremely hot item, but if I can get to a live product page with an "Add" button on it, I do expect that fucking button to work.

Well, dumb that they are charging shipping for paying PRIME Members.  What are they going to do next, just tack on shipping charges for other items in the future?  I thought Amazon was above any type of gauging....maybe they will follow the Gamestop bundle model next?

Amazon was stupid to give a set time for release with such a small quantity. All they did was make a lot of angry people 

I guess the same could go for a store at retail, as they opened at their set time, and didn't have enough either. I would say "N" was to blame myself, but whatever.

You're the one who jumped up to the top of the heap, sunshine.  So angry, you should calm down before you burst something important like a blood vessel in your brain.  Then, you might only be doing this.....  :drool:

How come the Playing With Power: Nintendo NES Classics book is $27 on Amazon but $45 at Best Buy & Gamestop?

Because they charge MSRP on books.  Amazon started as a discount book seller.

Amazon and Barnes and Noble do discounts on new merchandise, GS and BB do not, they charge full retail.

LOL Nintendo's marketing at work again. Precisely the reason 3rd parties and Amazon don't like fuckin with them xD.


3rd parties dont Fuck with Nintendo because they dont "market" correctly? You sir, are an idiot.

Oh well, guess everyone has to go back to playing their entire NES .ROM library for free.   There's just no fairness.

Indeed. OG XBOX controllers have super long cords also :)

I wish I saw that before I did the store pick up. I am going to open it and take images of the cheat codes for my trouble.

Apparently, it doesn't work on the NES Classic. Check the Amazon reviews.

Got it, wasn't sure if it was just Gamestop and Best Buy trying to cash in on all this buzz by increasing the price. I may get the book for my brother for Christmas, any opinions on it from those you got it already?

I've got a feeling some of those sellers are about to get scammed or being troll bidded.  Let me wipe the singular tear from my eye.

If they trickled them out randomly during the day people would be bitching about being held "prisoner" at their computer/phone/whatever for an unspecified time. If they put them up at 4 AM with no announcement people would be bitching about how they enabled no life scalpers without a job/family.....etc...no win for Amazon with some people. At worst you were tied up with their internet device for 5 min, and either got on or didn't...much better than queing up somewhere in the cold for hours only to be disappointed.

Even if I didn't get one, I'm not even mad at people reselling. More power to you, it's bloody hilarious because we all know the outcome.

Slightly reminds me of when I wanted a pip boy last year and the only place to find one was eBay for insane prices. Well, just like the pip boy, I'll wait out the scalpers and the hype til I realize I don't really want it
