I'm hopeful for some switch games since I've been showing my switch some love recently which it deserves. Mario Kart for 30-35 would be awesome as well as a pro controller at that price but I won't hold my breath. Nintendo don't have to put their games on sale probably won't be that cheap by the time PS6 comes out.

I traded a couple of dirty old gamecubes and a ps1 with broken screen attachment along with a bunch of sports titles and a scratched up sunshine disc to one. Guy said he didn't want to keep the pro because it was #666 but I just put a piece of black tape over it and now it don't bother me.

I so need to get back to this gem of a game. Is the DLC worth it? I have $20 for eshop but my Wii U 32 gig is full and I hear the download is like 4 or 5 gigs plus I'm about 30 shrines into the massive game so it's not like it's short on content. I'd much rather spend the $20 on my switch on super mario bros vs & punch-out arcade archives if the dlc isn't too great for botw. Thanks.

I can't believe Nintendo is charging full price MSRP for such old technology in the old 2DS on Black Friday. Considering you could get a "new" regular sized 3DS last year for $100, the aging 2DS that can't play newer games like Emblem Warriors going for $80 is just stupid. You've been able to get a 2DS with New Super Mario 2 for the same price all year. This really should not have been more than $50 tops for BF. Honestly I wish they were just selling regular sized "New" 3DS units for $100 again this year even though the technology is another year older and makes less sense now with the Switch out. At least it plays all the 3DS games and I could fit in my pocket easily. It also plays Zelda 3D in 3D! :P
If you don't like the price you can always buy an original game boy on ebay for around $40 with a handful of games with no backlight, no batteries, pretty rough condition, then spend a few hundred more on some of your favorite oldies. Yeah, $80 for a nintendo handheld with beautiful screens, rechargeable battery, & brand spanking new is highway robbery.

I'm still confused as to why this Explorer Edition doesn't include the season pass content? But, then I remembered... #BecauseNintendo
I'd be all over it if it had the additional content but since I have it for Wii U and am 25 shrines in guess I'll pass because I just can't see much if any difference in the Wii U version which don't shock me because the Wii U has some of the best graphics I've seen even compared to some of the best PS4 games. 3D world is just a work of art.

Not when it comes to scalping, but just my own reselling. It's easy when you're only selling 1 item when you think you can make it big quick but for most full time flippers (not scalpers), it's a lot harder.
Just some things that I have to do to get the products I want and do my job.
- Research price drops (make sure to get an item for the lowest marked price in the country or second lowest)
- Drive to stores (sounds easy until you're driving for 8+ hours hitting up every store within 50 miles or the few times when I drive or fly to other states for amazing scores)
- Manage accounts (that includes bank accounts, cashback programs, seller accounts, distribution contracts, shipper accounts, etc.)
- Actually package, label and ship the item (again, sounds easy but you have to process each item to make sure it is sellable, weigh them, make sure you're not shipping against guidelines (depends on the service you use though), and make sure you're not shipping items to the wrong distribution center which happens especially when you're shipping out 100+ items each shipment)
- Keep stock of your packing inventory (not hard but have to always have packing tape, boxes, mailers, adhesive stickers for labels, etc.)
- Actually store your items (if you're selling 2 items who cares, but if you're constantly shipping 100+ items, you're gonna need a place to store it that isn't your bedroom).
- Make sure to keep up with customer relations and returns
- Dealing with returned items and processing them to be sold again or sold damaged as a loss
- Keeping track of all your receipts and payments (for taxes and return purposes)
- If you sell on CL and the like you have to go thru that hassle of dealing with lowballers, no shows, meeting up with people who don't understand basic directions, the usual CL like issues, etc.
It's definitely easy if you buy one item every now and again (say the SNES Classic now than N64 Classic next year) but if this is your actual job, it's a lot harder. This is a full time job for me (not scalping, just reselling) but I'm sure I'll still have people telling me to get a "real job" despite making a lot more money than I did at my previous "real jobs" and working harder selling than I did at those jobs.
Yeah, people who don't sell things for profit will never understand or appreciate how much aggravation, work, and time is required. Many I suppose work for the man so have no idea how hard it is to actually make a profit on anything for yourself these days. When an opportunity like the nes classic or snes classic present themselves for an easy flip to double $$$ then anyone who passes it up is pretty stupid or comes by money so easy they don't care. Having said this no I did not get in on the SNES classic (barely got a NES classic to put up for myself) because in all honesty I didn't feel like standing in line at walmart for 6 hours. I had a friend who got there at 5 but was first in line so glad he got one but he spent far more than $85 if he considers his time worth anything. I still would not be too surprised if these are not bringing $200 around Christmas unless nintendo is willing to produce about 20 million between now and then.

Scalpers rejoice! SNES classics sold listings on ebay show that they are holding their price thanks to all the people willing to pay double or more retail. Nicely played scalpers, you're assumption that people have more money than patience was correct.
