This is getting maddening.  How many people (CAGs included) are getting these to actually own and how many are hoarding them up to resell? Stupid news outlets shouting at the top of their lungs that everything is "rare/discontinued" just pushes the demand even higher.  I won't get a chance to get out today to grab some and I couldn't pre-order either.  Will be a bit perturbed if the 20+ stores in my area all sell out before tomorrow - my local GS that usually gets extra things said they only got enough for PO's (besides Zelda).

 

:end rant:

 

 

I am actually getting them for myself, have two sons (9&10) who love to play games.  I honestly believe that most if not all the out of stock ones will be back soon. Probably after the holidays, I am in the minority here in this belief. But it is one that I firmly believe will happen. News outlets and a quote from one retailer have caused this mess, Nintendo will not let their customers down.

As you know many companies of this size operate at a loss for many, many years.  As was widely publicized ealier this year they could potentially operate at this loss for almost 40 years because they are estimated to have 10 billiion dollars in reserves...

In 2014, cash reserves at Nintendo Co Ltd fell by 128.13bn. Cash Flow from Investing was negative at 20.08bn, indicating this company earned more from the sale of existing assets than it spent on the purchase of new assets. In addition the company used 23.11bn for operations while cash used for financing totalled 127.16bn

 

I wouldnt count on these coming back at all.

 

 

Well they are a tenth of the way there already... lost money 4 straight years. These figures will come back. Do not buy into this panic and pay more than you need to. Going to stay true to the cheapassgamer in me, and let this crazy phase go by and then buy when the price is right. Be patient. Heck just a few posts up you can see these figures being bought at about $17 each. Stay cheap my friends and grow that backlog.

They seem to be doing just fine this year

 

http://www.bloomberg...een-tripling.ht

 

$456 million operating loss, last fiscal year (ending this past March)

 

http://www.polygon.c...-operating-loss

 

18 billion yen loss in quarter one 

 

http://www.reuters.c...N0II0H620141029

 

 

Your own article quotes a 23 billion yen loss last year.

 

 

I doubt they will stop producing something that can help turn a profit. Those amiibos will come back soon. Maybe not till after the holiday season, I intend to save that extra $60 mark up and  buy another game or two for Christmas with that saved cash and still get the rare amiiibos at retail price in January.

Dammit - how the hell did I forget the Christophen Walken (makes everything awesome) factor?

Don't post very often, but wanted to express my appreciation for all the great information everyone provides in this thread. My two sons and I have a great library thanks to the people here. Hope everyone has an awesome Holiday season.  Feel free to add me as a friend on the PSN Network or Steam. You all rock.
