About 25-35 mins on best buy, and about 30 mins on amazon.

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.

Artificial scarcity is all the rage these days. It builds word of mouth and your customers value the product more. Nintendo lives off this stuff. Look at their aggressive pricing on every product. Prices stay high and they'll discontinue a product before heavily discounting it. They don't even need to reduce prices on bundled consoles as the privilege of buying a limited Nintendo item is reward enough.

It has leeched into everything. I was looking for some nice plaid button up work shirts. Found a site selling made in the USA working man's shirts. Limited edition prints sold out in every piece. They will "drop" new stock a couple times in 1-2 months. The store just sits there selling brand stickers and explodes with activity 1 day a month when stock is in. I just wanted some us made Buffalo plaid!

Edit: I'm probably in competition with street wear people. I guess I prefer a working man's clothes in immaculate condition trend over frayed hole filled distressed vagabond look. Homeless but styling

And people still defend nintendo with them not making demand for the Switch, saying that they use the same materials as Apple and cant get them as fast as they do. Then how come they cant possibly produce enough Classic NES/SNES then? It's older technology and clearly doesnt use the same materials as the Switch or iPhones.

Zoo alert didn't go off for me. The tracker was around 20+ minutes slow. They pulled a fast one and made a new item page. Then didn't put in purchase limits. Too many contradictions for me to completely trust it

You could only get it from BB when it first came up at 1:14 am est this morning. Their pre-order button being live with "shipping:free" showing is a false trigger on their website. This happens frequently right after an item goes OOS for them.

son of a....  god this is so frustrating. the tracker app sent me false flags a few times tonight... i got one for amazon after it was already gone and i got another one for best buy a short while ago... and it was what you said here.

 

this is worth being completely exhausted at work today.

 

nintendo deserves to go out of business. seriously and truly. microsoft and sony for as selfish as they are, would never pull some shit like this.

So bestbuy/amazon will have no stock? I thought nintendo said these will be a lot easier to get! None of my alerts went off either. So the only ones left are walmart and gamestop?

I don't think the Amazon listing was real. Two reasons:

 

1. Amazon limits their exclusive amiibos to one per person and releases them on the day of release. While this isn't amiibo, why would they use a different tactic on something so limited?

 

2. Amazon CSRs don't know anything about any one specific product. It's like talking to someone who doesn't know your language and all they know how to say is 'Yes' or 'Uh huh'.

Best buy screwed a lot of people but they learned from walmart. 12 noon is fair, not 12 am on a school work night.

This is where Gamestop can be your best option/best friend ... at least trying to get an in-store preorder at GS weeds out the majority of the eBay want-to-be millionaires and gives you somewhat of a chance
