Nintendo has to either a) raise prices,b) accept that there will be a lottery for these, with concomitant reselling, or c) raise supply. If they are unwilling to do the latter, then people will be pissed off at Nintendo regardless. At least with option a, they get to capture the value from artificial scarcity.

That practice will never fly. Sorry.

If you do that it will piss a lot of people off. Basically "hey, we are only going to make x amount of this figure but dont worry! we will charge you twice as much for it!"

Price and supply/quantity are intimately related ...

So basically, you're idea is for Nintendo to cut out the middle man and scalp their own product

They are already losing money. Resellers are capturing a significant percentage of the current value of Amiibos due to supply issues.

How are they losing money? They already sold the product. What happens after that doesnt lose them any money.

I'm shocked this many people are going crazy for this. I feel like most are just getting this one to sell/trade.

You know, just because there is no news doesnt mean everyone has to just post random stuff to keep the thread near the top.

Fuck, I hope Sony Rewards gets more $5 PSN cards before 3/31. I have 383 points expiring on that day. After the purchase from yesterday go through, I should have 480. I'll get to 500 easilly but if they don't restock I'm going to be pissed off.

Well you could just get the $10 and pay for half of it

Having something shipped from any place is always a risk so I do not see what all the fuss is about, if you really wanted them in perfect condition pre-order in store or for pick up


Then you risk not getting them at all
