Not the remake. The 3DS.

All taken by scalpers and Nintendo couldn't bother to restock even slightly. I know it's a limited edition, but come on.

I didn't get MM 3D but what went wrong? I know people who couldn't find a fucking physical copy, but it's also not like Kotaku is a good base for discussion

Nothing.
The wrong thing is, that there're barely enough Majora's Mask N3DS on the market, and the ones that are on the market were bought by scalpers.

I would've been all over the MM new 3DS if it was purple.

>Kotaku writer is so buttblasted he decides to write an article shaming Nintendo
Nintendo wanted it to be limited edition. It is. I'm happy with my Mon Hun one, and I preordered it hours after the MM one sold out. Missing a LE is only an issue if you're slow

That's why the Kucktaku writer is upset-- limited edition items were limited edition, and he didn't get his pre-order in soon enough.

Pretty much every place that sold them had a 1 per customer/address limit, and the places that didn't cancelled bulk scalper orders after the fact and opened sales on them again which instantly sold out. So it's no worse than any other highly sought after product.

People can blame some early amiibo shortages on scalpers buying 20 at a time before stores got smart and changed their rules, but it's not really the case with limited edition handhelds.

>Nintendo couldn't bother to restock even slightly
Because they can't magically pull more out of their asses? They can't restock what they don't have, and unless you're buying right form Nintendo themselves they have literally zero control over what makes it to store shelves. Nintendo can't call your local Wal-Mart and tell them to stock more, genius.

It was a limited edition system, and people are complaining because stock was, you know, limited? It's in the name. Blame Wal-Mart, Gamestop and other retailers for letting scalpers buy them all up.

>>283545493
But how is that Nintendo's fault? Nintendo can't stop scalpers from driving to a dozen Gamestops and preordering every system each store gets.

>>283543550
It's not as easy as "just make more". The line was set up and ran for a set amount a while back. It finished and has likely been retooled for something else already.

Overproducing physical product has vastly worse consequences than underproducing, so Nintendo plays it carefully. They simply did not anticipate the levels of demand. Scalpers are rarely paid much attention and are more of a problem for the retailer.
>>
>>283545789
If you want to make scalping a business, rent a bunch of PO boxes and get extra credit cards, and happen to be online exactly during the 20 minute window something is available, I'm sure you can have a tiny amount of the total bulk of shipments sitting in your house to resell as well. But that's no different than any other sought after product.

No idea why they're not reissuing GC adapters, but as for amiibos undershipping initially is the right thing to do in a completely untested market. They take time to produce and ship as well, Nintendo can't just ship out thousands of amiibos they don't have.

Most if not all of the complaints people have seem to be the fault of retailers. They control the stock and how gets to buy it. If your local store lets some fatass neckbeard walk in and buy all the amiibos the moment they go out that's on the store.

Actually most of the time this is the case with limited edition products, often they're harder to produce or cost more.

This is exactly what they're doing. They can't afford to overproduce and leave stores with tons of unsold shit they'll lose money on. Nintendo is just a video game company, they're not like Sony and MS who have dozens of other divisions within the company to fall back on, they can't take huge risks like that.

>>283546484
They go by preorders and past sales info. They probably based it off of the ALBW bundle which far from some out and actually came with the game. On top of that, original MM didn't sell as well as OoT and OoT 3ds sold well but didn't set the world on fire.

You can argue that the cultural demand for the product was very high and that the average gamer would know that, and sure, you'd be right. But game companies almost always prefer metrics and existing data for decision making over "pulse of the community" feelings.

This should lead to higher skus for future first part special editions at least. Though not for, say, a metroid bundle.

Again, they produce too many and there's too little demand. They produce more, scalpers stop buying them and stores have tons of leftovers and aren't too happy with Nintendo.

>Well they either vastly underestimated how many people would want one

You're mistaken. Hypothetically if only 5000 people wanted them and Nintendo produced 5000 Limited Edition units they wouldn't meet demand.

Scalpers buying multiple LE's mean that even if Nintendo met the real demand not every customer would get their LE MM 3DS. They'd have to oversupply the systems which is a big risk, if the 5000 wanting the system got it and the scalpers can't the extra to anyone they can just return unsold systems to stores for a refund and Nintendo loses money.

>Overproducing physical product has vastly worse consequences than underproducing, so Nintendo plays it carefully. They simply did not anticipate the levels of demand. Scalpers are rarely paid much attention and are more of a problem for the retailer.

That's pretty much what's happening here. However this doesn't look very good for Nintendo when you also factor in this situation, the scarcity of some amiibos, and the Gamecube adapter for the Wii U.

Scalping isn't a very big issue in Japan as far as I know, so they're probably not used to dealing with scaplers very often. It'll be interesting to see how Nintendo handles this.

You can sue them but you'll be spending thousands of dollars on legal fees for a $300 system. Unless you file for small claims court where you don't need a lawyer, but those judgments aren't enforceable and Best Buy could refuse to pay and there's nothing you could do about it.

The limited edition isnt even special. It's a fucking sticker on a 3DS. It's not like the bundle came with a signed autograph from everyone at nintendo or something like a artbook/poster/sound track. The people that buy it at 400+ dollars are the problem, not the scalpers.

>>
>>283548015
But the thing is Nintendo would likely spend more than usual reissuing those for the small number of people who still want one and it might actually wind up costing them. How many people would run out and buy the GC adapter again? How many people beyond the small, vocal fanbase really wants those rarer amiibos? If the cost of manufacturing these again is too high, they're simply not going to do it regardless of how many very vocal fans there are out there.

And it's not as simple as "just make more" they likely have ongoing contracts with factories and they can't necessarily reset everything to produce these amiibos again. That might interrupt what is currently going on and cost them again. They have to produce [X] number of them, making a small run would be a lot more expensive than a much larger one per unit, and again there probably isn't all that much demand among people who aren't neckbeards on the internet.

I'd like to see more GC adapters though, not going to sell those GC controllers if no one can fucking use them. Gamestop has/had adapters last month, but you could only buy one in a $140 bundle with four GC controllers.

>>283545987
Nintendrone faggot. Nintendo needs to not make half of what is expected to be bought. 5000 people want a game? Lets make 2500 and have 1000 of those people buy all of them only to be sold 3x as much to people who actually want it.

The way Nintendo has been handling a lot of their new things has been downright fucking retarded. Sure it might be good business wise because it creates an artificial demand and people impulse buy them, but it's fucking ruined by the scalpers. The amiibos are the worst fucking case of this, all it does is make people lash out at the company for supplying such limited stock and they repeatedly keep doing this shit. Ever since Marth, WFT, and Villager were announced to be discontinued this shit has been happening, and it's fucking unfair to the actual customers. Oh you couldn't pre-order or get the one you wanted because scalpers got to them first? Too bad! Try ebay though ;)
It just ruins amiibos for everyone, well, everyone except the shitty scalpers.

Gamestop allows you to trade your old system in after transferring everything to the new one, the thing is you essentially have to pay outright, then bring the old system back to em with the receipt so they can reimburse you the $100. I didnt bother getting the N3DS, but that's how it worked.

Buzzwords aside I mean come on. I have to say it. Autism.

I'm not a fan of the words either, but if you obsess over them this much you most likely fall under the autism spectrum.

>Sure it might be good business wise because it creates an artificial demand and people impulse buy them, but it's fucking ruined by the scalpers.

You limit the amount of consumers that can actually buy the product. Nintendo is basically pandering to the niche/ethutastist then you average kid to play Nintendos.. If you piss them off enough, they will just buy other stuff. They are just manipulating making small demand bigger then it actually is. It won't help them make extra cash, or gain higher market share aganist activision/disney.

The thing is that First hand sold amiibo is always more profitable then second hand sold toys. Allowing Scalpers to resell toys makes you lose money that could been your. Which is why Western publishers hate Second hand, and want to user games to die.

All I saying is that limiting Supply to create artificial demand isn't good business because.

1. Scalpers(Second hand) get more money then Nintendo out of them.

2. It gives a false install base, where Nintendo mistakes scalpers for as actual people interested in Nintendo profits. Which limits mainstream potienal of the product, and makes it easier for Activision/Disney to outsell Nintendo.

3. People are not THAT interested, and it limits the amount of people who could have bought. It doesn't actually make them more cash.

You don't even need to do that to create demand when you have marketing, market research, among of others to create something that consumer's want. PS4 is good example of why you don't need to do that.

Not him but it works you know, meaning it is in fact good business.
Also you're a moron if you truly believe they won't reprint anything that isn't a limited edition item.

As for this
> Scalpers(Second hand) get more money then Nintendo out of them.
They don't, because normals just go for the alternative, that being the regular or XL N3DS.
>>
>>283557840
Actually they would get less.
The only reason there's such a hype around it is because it's a limited edition item. If it wasn't then they wouldn't care and people would just go for the regular version.
Plus it costs more to produce believe it or not.
>>
>>283558131
I understand, but all they had to do was make people believe it was extremely limited. We wouldn't have known how many of the majora's mask 3ds were shipped
>>
>>283558328
People aren't stupid you know.

I have the MM 3ds and it's nice and all but I'd throw it out the window if I could buy the black standard n3DS. Fuck NoA.

next time a big ticket nintendo item comes out, I'm gonna scalp the shit out of it.

So mostly off-topic, but it does relate to Majora's Mask. Couldn't find another thread and didn't want to make a new one.

I'm in the Stone Tower Temple and one of the keys that should be there isn't there. It's in that room with the Dexihand and the spike balls, it should be in a chest on the ledge next to the hand but the chest isn't there. Anyone else have that issue or did I forget to do something?
>>
>>283559042
Hahah, friends? What friends? You don't have any fucking friends. The "friends" that you are playing with you are only your "friends" because you give them shit. They laugh at you behind your back.

>>283543115

They fucked up by making it look upside down when the system is open, like all of the other special editions.

>>283545539

>or too lazy to go out to target or Frys on day one

Their defense most people work on Fridays, so getting there within an hour of the store opening to grab one of the limited amount they stock would definitely be an issue.

I wouldn't have been able to get one even if I wanted one. Good thing I prefer Monster Hunter.

All the targets around me got around 2 at best. Even the one I frequent that got around 50 or more for all consoles even in the days of the Wii craze. Most got lines of about 20 to 30, and more than half had to be told they might as well leave since neither the MM 3ds or MM LE weren't much in stock.

And some of these people had waited for 5 hours. The first two in lines were pretty much the same, they were just lucky they got their first.

>the system is for enjoyment for yourself, not to show off.

Then it would look fine turned the other way, and still look better when it is open. When it is closed it doesn't matter what orientation it is in, it only matters when it is open.

They aren't paying people for that, they're taking like half of the earnings of people who were already shilling for them.
