Was the third person at the GameStop by my work. Walked in and the woman behind the counter said that it wasn't coming up on the POS so they couldn't pre-order it. More people started filing in and she asked us if we wanted to get a callback (lol no) or to wait outside. So we all go outside and wait until another coworker arrives and the line fills up to about 50 people.

 

They provide updates while they try and figure out what's going on and eventually let the first two people inside. Then they ask me and the next person to come inside to order it and I walk up to the POS and they are bundles through the GS Online Cart? I had to order it via a bundle (comes with a book) and got it for $112 when all was said and done.

 

Took forever to get through the cart but eventually it was able to work... so it doesn't seem that this store did brick and mortar preorders as this will be shipped to my house. Does that mean that the store will be getting them at some point? Looking for some clarification here as I'm not familiar with how the newer POS works since I haven't worked there in 7 years.

Just to make you feel better, those of you who paid $112 for the book bundles also got charged $5 shipping when there was actually a free shipping option available.  It should have been $100 + tax.

Ganestop App bundles still appear to be in stock, most likely because no one can successfully check out

I don't want one of these bad enough to buy a ThinkGeek bundle.  I'll just hope they actually produce a decent amount of these in the future (haha).

I've been trying different bundles and different browsers since the second it was posted in the sticky thread and I can't even get one into my cart. Are we the only ones?

I do. I have GS credit to burn. I'm also one of those dumb c**ts with a GS credit card to Fuck around with. I'm assuming these work on thinkgeek. I've never tried.

Thats been my tactic all along. You are a lucky man.

Had to get this exact bundle for the NES classic like a month ago. Still haven't been able to sell the other shit. My order right now is processing and stuck on "Placing order...".

 

It's fucking killing me

I'm resisting a very long rant, but I have to say that I am beginning to really resent Nintendo very much. I like their products, but they're business practices are frustrating. I don't even hate GS at all for the bundles. They are desperately trying to turn a profit when digital distribution is probably Fuck ing them right now. Nintendo is responsible for this BS.

The solution is simple. Nintendo ups the price to $149.99 and watch the demand and interest drop.

Yeah, I'm not as salty about this as I thought... I knew I was gonna miss it, got pretty pissed b/c of Target (got close, sold out during check out) but at the end of the day, this wasn't surprising. 

 

Knowing Nintendo, I'm sure they'll do something stupid like abruptly end production citing production limitations. Fine, I get there's finite production capacity but people want to buy something you make, tell people to be patient and try to make more. Don't just cut them off and pretend like there capacity to produce more isn't there over time.

Nintendo has made too big a name for themselves. No matter how much people they piss off aint nobody bout to boycott them and they know it.
