Getting a lot of "What does being held mean" on twitter. Can you clarify or does that all the ad says? Thanks. :)

Anyone got an idea what time Best Buy usually restocks NES Classics/Switches? I work night shifts and I don't want to miss out on ordering a classic while I'm snoozing

Does the One Punch Man bluray come with a fucking cape made of silk?

And seriously, what does it mean that it's "being held"? Does it go on sale on Monday or Tuesday like most new media does

I went and talked to an associate last night asking about when they'd be putting their Nes classics out. He went and talked to a manager in the back, came back and told me they would have them out Sunday. Are some store not going to stick to holding them until Monday? I'm camping out tonight, but I'll do both nights if I have to

First of all, its called one man punch which is rated TVMA and comes with a silk sock to use and secondly, the nes classics are being held because they were crying once they found out they were the last of their kind to be produced. They will "man up" by Monday morning

The actual selling price on those NES Classics have been dropping significantly on EBay. Average price when they were announced to be discontinued was around $350. Now the average price is around $250.

Why hold them until Monday when most people have to work? Normal opening time? I would camp out for one but if store isn't opening until 10 I gotta be to work before then.

Is there a place I can look at the complete ad? Trying to see if any tablets are going to be on sale.

It would be nice to know how many NES mini's stores will have, if its one or two, I wont bother, but if its 10-15 i'll try

It's not part of the ad. Stores were told to hold all stock that come in this week for that date.

Things are usually held for Sunday because they are mentioned in the ad. The Classic is supposed to be held for Monday because it is getting added to the selection of products available at store pick-up and those changes aren't usually done on Sunday. Its totally possible stores could have ignored the hold and sold them already or are planing to put them out Sunday anyway. Best bet would to call today and see what they are doing.

It's so ridiculous that people constantly give free passes to Nintendo for their bizarre business decisions. Reissues costing $60 is fucking absurd. People (rightfully) gave Gearbox shit for charging $60 for Bulletstorm, but at the same time cheer Nintendo for having the gall to literally release the same game as was already on the Wii U. Not to mention that backwards pricing on Puyo Puyo Tetris. $40 when other platforms it's $30? Give me a break...

Going to be in for Kingdom Hearts 2.8 with GCU discount. Had to look up what Outlast Trinity was. Whistleblower is great but I wouldn't consider it a full length game. Title is more catchy, I get it.

Am I understanding you right? That it'd be possible for me to do store pickup for an NES Classic, so I don't have to go physically wait in line?

To be fair the Switch version actually comes with more stuff. Not that 2 keychains is worth paying $10 more but whatever. :)

Should be the latter.

Store pick-up is never an option for stuff they plan to ticket. It likely will never go live on the website again. :wall:

What game is Nintendo release thats the same on WiiU for $60? If your talking about Mario Kart, its not the same game, its no different then when Sony release the Last of Us remaster on PS4 for $60 nobody complained and many other companies do the same for definite Editions. Bulletstorm is a game nobody cares about and can be brought for less then $5, Mario Kart on Wiiu is prob still selling for $50 or $60 bucks. As for Puyo Tetris, Nintendo has no control over 3rd party game prices.

Gotcha. I just called my local store and they're gonna do a first come first serve, so I might actually go wait in line.

 

Anyone have any idea if they're getting shipments of second controllers too?

Yeah unfortunately this whole thing relies on people being intelligent and following directions so...expect problems.

I don't my store ever got a controller restock. Best Buy does sell an Insignia NES controller with a 10ft cord included though.

I thought Mario Kart just added a different battle mode and a few different racers?
