I'd say it is (was) totally legit...It applied my Amazon employee discount at checkout.


How much did you get off?

One of these days a scalper is going to get murdered over vidya and a fistful of dollars, I guarantee it.

The good old "one for a friend." Why do people even give so much detail about their purchases? Just ****ing say you bought one and leave it at that. No one cares if you bought one for your dog, your dead grandmother, or the invisible friend that chills in your mom's panty drawer.

I do, because then we get posts like this.

Triggered much? Apparently so. ;)


Not really, no. But again, no one cares who you bought extra ones for.

Stop whining

That probably means some genius ordered 10,000 of them. Did anyone happen to play around with cart numbers and see how many it was showing you could order?


Saw some dude on twitter reply to Wario with a screenshot of his email confirmations.. he had at least 6 emails with multiples of 10 systems smh...

Look at it as a win-win. They get to tell their little story; we get to say, "cool story, bro."

Walmart back up again at 10 PST according to rumor. East coast set your clocks for 1 in the afternoon.

Bestbuy is still playing cart games.  Coming soon for a bit, then preorder again, pick up only, but no stores available, now preorder button, but out of stock.  Just make up your mind already bestbuy!

It was merely a rhetorical question on my part. Of course you were triggered, which is why you wrote what you wrote. No matter how much you deny it.

Try to expand your vocabulary and use something other than the word triggered.

Amazon cancelled multiple orders from the Zelda Breath of the Wild Master Edition back during pre-orders so I imagine they'd do the same for this especially since you could add 10+ in your cart. If I'm not mistaken they also cancelled orders from people who only even ordered just one due to overselling so in any case.

lol He is right though. Its always funny when people claim they got one for a friend.

I like all the wishful thinking about the numbers on these.. but do you guys really think they'll even come close to meeting demand? Its been 5 months since the Switch released and those are barely meeting demand.
Plus, these are not their flagship console. This is a novelty item.

How do you know he's right? Not saying I can prove to you that I''m right. But neither can he. I shared the info because I was simply excited about the fact I was able to score 2 of them, and yes, one for a bud. Seeing as these things will become a pain in the ass to get.

 

But the real question here is, why are people like him triggered so easily due to a harmless post on a message board?  What sets these kinds of people off like that? I truly find that kind of behavior bizarre.

Man. Crashed out early last night. Figures. That's my luck. The pre order us lit up but can't add to cart. Hopefully it comes back around. Awesome for you guys that got one.

Lol its obviously due to the fact that you ordered more than 1, and some people cant even order 1. But i agree with you. Order as many as you like for the whole family if you wish

I hope that rumor about Walmart isnt true. The only way people are gonna stand a chance on there is if it isn't a predetermined time.

The thought did cross my mind, but I didn't want to sound presumptuous.

I bought 4, one for my cat, one for my bf, one for me, and one for my cat to scalp on ebay.

I bet your cat wasn't even alive when the original came out. What a poser

100% no. Everything manufactured is at a safe number. Nintendo can easily over produce and meet demand, but why would they? Less equals more. A companies brand is the most important thing and Nintendo understands this better than anyone. 

 

1pm EST? RIP Walmart servers.
