Cmon now guy dont try to ruin it for the rest of us that lost sleep for this. Let us believe it paid off. Lol

 

im 100% certain its a legit listing They had the same problem with UK preorders it had 2 listings once closed but another opened up again later everyone combined into 1. So possibly another listing will come later the original though.

So they have been coming in and out of stock all day. Is it a waste of time to keep reloading the page?

I have no idea... it's almost like it was a glitch from the start. I wouldn't be shocked if BB canceled everyone's orders now looking back at the history of the item.

 

But I also have a hard time quitting knowing many ppl got them earlier. Why does it keep coming on and off line??? What kind of sorcery is this!?

it always happens with items that go out of stock fast like this. Very small chance you'll get an order in while it's flickering.

i recognize this is likely my only opportunity to get one.

 

i just can't compete with the rest of you. I don't have infinite time and access to be able to get this from a walmart or target.

 

and out of principle i will never buy something at 4x price on ebay. its a disgusting practice i just cannot support.

I could have gotten this any other week, but I have to be at work early all week so I'm in bed earlier. Missed this by 45 minutes. Sucks man

Is the "in-demand" brand equity that Nintendo gains from pulling this stunt over and over really worth it, when they could be selling 10x as many of these?

And it's all bred on most people attempting to rekindle their childhood. Is there nothing more upsetting than that?

 

I grew up with the NES and SNES. I wanted these systems because in some small way, playing these games would make me feel like a kid again.

 

They're literally bleeding the little 'wonder' I have left in my soul out of my body.

Want to feel like a kid again? Well... go Fuck yourself! Try your best, you will fail. That's life. Another reminder of adulthood.

I feel like the only way to get this thing will be to camp out on launch day. I've checked this board and Wario feed many times a day every day. Nothing I can do if it keeps going live at 1-3 am eastern. Some of us need to sleep for work. Oh well.

If it's like last year, that also will be a very tough deal. Most stores only got a handful... and people were camped out long before you'd think any normal working person would be able to do so.

Honestly the sales of these things are inconsequential compared to their normal systems. they're literally just small litmus tests of nintendo's brand recognition at a time in their companies life when its very very important

 

in 2 years the only thing people will remember about these things is their scarcity. the excitement of the device instead of the actual usefulness. which if anyone is honest is very very little, especially for the money.

But Nintendo says significantly more units! So if they get 2 handfuls, maybe we have a chance!

I get the whole limited supply thing. If You could buy them anywhere they would be like those Segamini systems you can get two for a dollar.
When I don't get is the Price point. They could price these are the $149 and sell The same quality I think.

Tastes like chicken.

How do we know if these are inconsequential if we've never even approached it's full impact out on the market? Why would it be any different than any other product Nintendo would create to make money on? There seems to be the sentiment that these classic consoles are best left with the old collectible card mentality that scarcity is what drives the interest for the niche market, but the online traffic these announcements drove alone should have easily tipped Nintendo off that this was a very in demand product that should have been able to be plucked off store shelves with relative ease.

Yeah what's going on with it at Best Buy. It was almost allowing me to do a store pickup order then said out of stock. Are we going to be able to preorder these things again or what?
I enjoy hoarding acorns, running up trees, and playing in traffic.
