Didn't someone mention that scalpers use bots, to buy up all the stock online in the first minute. Idk

Seems like prices are going down on ebay, not that anyone should buy one for $150.

But dat 8% ebay bucks!

 

Seems like it's hovering around $200 right now. Let people waste their money. I want to sell mine to pay for my sweet FFXV CE.

I don't think there are any widespread bots out there that can be used to buy up stock at stores like amazon/walmart

 

I think you would have to dig deep in the dark part of the net to find something like that tbh, not that im implying anyone should...(or am I?)

 

as other have pointed out, walmart's servers are going to set on fire tomorrow

I thought it would be a sorta nifty thing to own but it's totally not worth all this artificial shortage bullshit, so I'm sitting this one out until this thing is readily available. You guys can have at it.

I picked up one of the Advantage Joysticks only to find out that it was recalled and doesn't actually work on the NES Classic Edition, which was the reason I bought it. It does however work on the Wii U and Wii, I am considering keeping it as a possibly rare item in the future since it has been recalled, but it's also $25 I could have back in my pocket if I decide to return it.

Gotta love Nintendo. Their creating the same mysterious shortage that plagued the Wii. There's no reason for these to be in short supply. This is the only tactic that helps sell their systems lately.

FYI keep an eye on Target via Brickseek.

They restocked at some stores this morning.

Stores near me each had 2.

Lately? Like the Wii U? What "systems" are you referring too? The Wii which came out a decade ago?

A lot of mine had stock listed via brickseek this morning too until they mysteriously changed to saleable qty 0 an hour before opening. Glad I didn't bother trying to go to any of them.

So glad no one in my family wants one of these.

 

What really turned me off though was the controller cord length...WTF

Just 1 more.

At least the U.S./EU ones allow extension cables and even wireless adaptors.  The Famicon version (Japan) has its controllers permanently attached to the system, just like the original.

It's not that big of a deal, extension cables are cheap.

Haven't sold the controllers yet, only sold a system for $280 but they have since gone down.
