In Topic: PSA: I Got Punked By GameStop Retrogaming

Yesterday, 06:14 PM

So I'm clear, is any CAG buying retro games from GameStop, period? Wouldn't it be cheaper to find Chrono Trigger even on eBay with a couple minutes' work?

With CAG16 and Power Up Rewards you can save 26% off their prices. In almost all cases that would be cheaper than eBay. Not to mention retro games are included in B2G1 along with PUR (it's a nearly 40% discount in that case).

Also, Chrono Trigger goes for over $110 on eBay and Amazon so even without discounts, GameStop is considerably cheaper.

Get ready!


Getting Nintendo's approval is still really difficult. There isn't going to be a flood of third-party amiibo. Shovel Knight gets to exist because the game was massively successful, especially on Nintendo platforms. You won't be seeing an amiibo for "Meme Run" or "The Letter" any time soon because Nintendo is not letting every dev out there license a figure.

I think that Shovel Knight amiibo is legit. It's not for Smash Bros. so he's not making an appearance there - it's the first third-party amiibo to be manufactured and released. Notice that next to the amiibo logo it shows "Official Nintendo Licensed Product" instead of the standard Nintendo logo. You only find the licensed seal on third-party items. I don't think anyone making a fake image would be that thorough with their fake.

 

Also, any developer can create and release their own amiibo as long as they go through an approval process with Nintendo (that is probably super-rigorous, haven't looking into it myself).

Animal Crossing Series 1 packs are up to preorder at Nebraska Furniture Mart. Limit of 3 per order: http://www.nfm.com/D...ductid=44006807

 

I went ahead and got three - hopefully these are easy to find in store at launch because I'll probably end up buying way more than three packs.

I had no idea this game was expensive. Weird. Figured you could get this at any store. 

Nintendo has been letting a lot of their games go out of print physically - I think they want to push digital downloads since there is much higher margins. For reference, Star Fox 64 3D is also out of print.
