So I finally picked up a Wii U and some games but the store I bought it at didn't have and remotes or pro controllers in stock. "No biggie. I'm just going to get them at some other place", or so I thought. Not a single store in my vicinity has any controllers in stock. What the hell? And don't tell me that it is because of Christmas. I could have bought hundreds of PS4 and XBone controllers.
I mean it is just so dumb. There must have been quite a few people who picked the Wii U up over the holidays and now they can't play multiplayer games because Nintendo didn't provide enough controllers. Of course, I could order some online but I planned on inviting some friends over for multiplayer on the weekend.
I eventually will but the controllers won't arrive in time for me to play with my bros this weekend. Also, even amazon seems to have figured out that there is a drought as the prices seem to have gone up quite a bit recently (i.e. in my country at least).
So the next time they are here you will buy 4 instantly in case you need them.
Amiibos work in the same way - they put artificially low amount of them on the market so everybody buys them because they know that if they'll approach it in a "maybe I'll buy it in the next month, not now", they won't be there in the next month.
Pure jewery, that's why.
So it's even worse than expected.
>I don't get to buy the controllers that I won't. Meanwhile, I could get Bayonetta 2 for between 10 and 20€.
>Guys in the US have an abundance of controllers available in their stores but have to dish out 70 or so dollars for Bayonetta 2 because it has become so rare.
If you are in Europe, you should have asked earlier, bro. A while ago, I came across Rythm Thief in a bundle with two other games for 10€! Just checked the online store of that placed but it seems it sold out.
