  1. I try to get one today from my local GAME in Bath and they said if you didn’t preorder you are not able to buy one in store… what kind of bullshit is this? why is Nintendo only selling this console online and not stocking in store….. Stupid strategy if you ask me, a lot of people didn’t pre order and were waiting for today to be able to get their hands on one…. Very disappointed

  2. They’re all gone already. it’s ridiculous. There was so much advertising about it and there are even 3rd party controllers for it… they have to restock. They’d be really stupid not to have those things on sheves for the holidays, and they’d be really stupid to annoy so many fans again (the smash amiibo mess wasn’t so long ago) just a few months before launching the Switch.

  3. Good luck finding one. I would buy one if I could walk into a store and purchase one. Otherwise they will lose out on a sale. I imagine they are going to lose millions in sales in the next few weeks. And by the time they finally stock some on store shelves everyone will be pissed off and jaded and the hype will be gone. You just gotta love Nintendos ignorance.

  4. ….hiw do I say this without sounding like a hater?

    “You put out this NES mini with 30 games in HD (as if the visual quality us gonna up the graphics to 4K! Lol) at $59…….& ship only a limited number of systems. ”
    “You left the Wii U dead in the water with only Mario Color Splash as the only AAA title to end 2016. ”

    “Then you decide to launch that new Zelda BOTW (the Wii U version) next year March.”
    *Fuck That nes mini! Ill download the classics off the network onto my Wii U or 3DS!!

    1. You do realize that all new products are initially introduced in small quantities, not just Nintendo’s. Is it their fault that there is as much demand for it as there is? Sony introduced the PSVR in very limited quantities too, there just wasn’t as much demand for it.
