Geoff Keighley Confirms That The Game Awards Will Be Back Later This Year

Last year’s Game Awards were considered by many to be a success, so it’s great to hear from Geoff Keighley that they will be back again this year. There was a ton of fantastic Nintendo content showcased during last year’s award ceremony, so here’s hoping that the same can be said of this year’s show. It’s more than likely to take place again in December.

Thanks, Pablo

Leaked GameStop Memo Says Wave 3 Amiibo Will Not Be Street Dated

gamestop_amiibo_wave_3

Kinda good news for those of you who want the Wave 3 line of Amiibo figures as a recently leaked GameStop memo says that they won’t adhere to a street date. This means that stores will be able to sell them as soon as they have them in. It’s handy if you’ve pre-ordered, but if you were thinking of going to a store and purchasing them in bulk then you’re going to encounter trouble as they will be sold as and when GameStop get the deliveries in.

Thanks, Retrogaminglord

Best Buy Has Begun Cancelling Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS Orders And Giving Out $50 Gift Card For Inconvenience

A number of you have contacted me to say that Best Buy have canceled your New Nintendo 3DS Majora’s Mask edition consoles. The issue is is that it’s affecting those who only pre-ordered one system. As compensation the retailer has started to issue a $50 gift card as a way of saying sorry. It’s not clear why, but I’d assume they took too many pre-orders and don’t have the stock to fulfill them.

We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com:

Thanks to all those who sent this in.
