The more time that passes it's actually making me feel they deserve to fail at this point
The arrogance/ignorance with the performance last night, the price of the system and accessories/obvious gouging with this game. It's ridiculous

I can never hold any ill will towards nintendo. Success or flop, they always innovate and push the boundaries of creativity. And nothing comes close to the quality of their first party titles.

They can still do that when they exit the hardware business :)

Just got back from my store, which is a small one, and they had 27 Switches, 5 Zelda special editions, and 0 Zelda master editions available. I got to the store 10 minutes before they opened and was third in line. The first guy in line had been sitting there since 2am lol

If I had to guess, GS isn't doing in store preorders for the master edition because they fucked up and way oversold last night on their website, and now they have to use the in store allotments to fulfill the online orders

My store has 9 consoles :p

Their information said the Master edition was online only and it wasn't even showing on the web site for them.  In Arkansas

lol - I have to wonder when he started to reassess his life decisions while sitting there all alone. 5AM? 6? By 7 he HAD to be thinking "WTF was I thinking, what is wrong with me?"

No pic but I was able to preorder SKU 141792.
I preordered both Master and special and this is what the receipt says.
Available SKU 24
141792 026/00 Switch
Available SKU 23
141790 026/00 Switch


I wonder if they'll actually fullfil them. Did you only have to put 25 down? There not supposed to do in store orders for the master edition.

If only the Switch would have had access to the 3DS library it would have been amazing.

Side note, just checked best buy's website and all of the consoles are available for preorder now.  I had been checking all morning and it said none available within 250 miles, but now all of the stores have them.

 

Guessing they were holding off for people coming into the store first.

My store's(allen, TX) employees were talking with a lady they seemed to know well about "slipping" her a master's edition.

 

I bet they can do it, they're just sweeping it under the rug so store employees / friends can hoard preorders.

Bingo, employees now are well aware of the resell value of these things.

 

Call it an increased pay perk if you will. Smh

I just checked online and the SKU matches.

Look in your account and see what it says. My receipt shows the generic stuff but the special edition pic shows up in the app

Yeah. The store clerk that was outside mine was all loudly exlaiming how many special editions they had, and when someone mentioned about the Master edition, he hush-hush replied to them and said it was "online only."

 

Don't let the clerks lie to you before you go. Be assertive.

It has the old glitched 999 price. I thought al ce's had to be a 25 deposit.

Wait you only had to put $5 down? That seems like a not very secure preorder. Especially with Gamestop which made that huge mistake with Fire Emblem Fates SE preorders.

Is there any downside to ordering  the Special edition from UK amazon even though I live in the USA?

 

I got a preorder of that in last night. I mean, aside from the wait..

 

Preorders are still up for it, too.

It's not the same Master Edition.  See the side of the box:  81w4wShsRHL.jpg

I'm still a huge fan and want to play botw. Beauty of disposable income.

And deserving to fail does not mean I want them to.

Ugh if the same thing happened with Fire Emblem I guess I'll go back later and put down more.

I think the $25 min limit isn't applied simply bc it hasn't updated the SKU. I'm crossing my fingers for BB anyway so hopefully I won't have to care either way.

It has the sword which is what anyone wants. The pouch in the US one looks silly.
