    • People acting like this invalidates the complaining of microtransactions, everyone who actually had these games didn't like it, just because it sold doesn't mean they should sell it, they're training people to buy shit and ask for more

    • You know some ding dong salaryman said, "scarcity" and everyone nodded enthusiastically, then stopped. They all looked at the CEO who, knowing all eyes were on him, nodded emphatically. Salaryman gets promotion and now they'll trot out all the hits for Switch this way. Capitalism!

  • Physical production stops eventually for all games, isn't this just Nintendo being up front about it? Although production probs normally lasts a few years, not just one...

  • Shitty as this decision was, it wasn't exactly a secret. Nintendo announced that it would be on the eShop for a limited time, and it was even stated in the game's store description. Still a dipshit move by a dipshit company who continues to be blind to the desires of its paying consumer base.

  • I mean there's still a demand for Gamecube games to be ported, instead of 'how about a sixth bundle of SNES games?'

  • If they didn't say that it was a limited supply, it probably wouldn't have sold as much as it did considering it's just 3 games on a emulator. Nintendo is known for its questionable and annoying business practices but I cant help but laugh on how well they pull it off

  • I'd be pissed to work at Nintendo designing games and have them be like "Yeah we only releasing this for 6 months" I love Nintendo but lately they have been so dumb, they have the best selling system and just totally taking it for granted and messing with their fan base.

  • Disney did the same thing with thier ip. They creat a sense of scarcity which causes the consumer to panic buy. I love those games and for me sure i would love it for the nostalgia factor but honestly i probably wont play them. If anything im waiting for a Metroid prime collection now that is something.

  • If a company stops selling a given piece of media, their copyright on it is moot until they make it available IMHO. If you cannot buy a game new, including the hardware to play it, then pirating is no less morally permissible than purchasing a used physical copy.

  • Not only FOMO, but also a continued perception into the future that Nintendo products are collectable, and limited. If they make their money in a short time, and create this perception for future similar products they see it as a win.

  • Nintendo does make good games but it's really bad when they make stupid decisions like this one

  • Boycott Nintendo and use emulation and piracy. It's the moral decision if you love video games.

  • Not sure how you guys don't understand this decision, it's pretty simple, just like when taco bell or any fast food place releases limited time foods, they do it so people jump on it b4 it's gone as if it won't come back yet it always does, it's literally the same scam we've seen all the time from other companies, they are doing this to up sales then after a year they will bring it back and do the same thing, it's just a video game version of the McDonald's Mcrib, don't fall for it

  • Nintendo snuffs out a fan-made Mario Battle Royale, releases an inferior product, and proceeds to pull the plug on their own knockoff. That’s not even next level stupid, that’s a damn backwards warp pipe.

  • So... Nintendo releases a limited edition product, tells you, from the get go, that it is limited edition and then proceeds to limit it, and people are upset about it? Also, please stop expecting streaming services and digital game distributors to keep their current lineup of products forever. Buy physical or sail the high seas, it clearly doesn't matter to these people.

  • I wonder if they’re going to repackage them as individual games.. Get the hype of these games up, get all the sales from the first six months, and then take the bundle down and sell each of the three for $60 each. $60 VS $180

  • The reason sales are so well is because its only available for limited time. Disney does the same thing with their iconic movies. It keeps a demand. Its actually very smart.

  • The switch already feels dead. Unlike the 3DS, the switch has pretty much one big title for every franchise, most of which were on the Wii U. Also the lack of virtual console is the worst decision Nintendo could’ve made.

      Joey FordJoey Ford9 päivää sitten
  • It's not baffling at all, it was very clear from the start the reason why they where doing this, it was to create scarcity so people will rush to buy it driving up sales in a short time it's basically playing on peoples fear of missing out. This obviously not being a consumer friendly tactic the right response should have been to not buy into this bullshit, not sure why consumer think companies will change there ways when they are still funding them.

Why was Unus Anus axed, cause the creators said the channel would be deleted at a certain date and stayed true to their word though it was massively successful. They told you upfront and they are staying true to their word, nothing to lose your minds over.

  • its not just for FOMO, its so they can sell the game at full price. Instead of selling the game at full price so people who can afford to pay full price will get the game early, and people with less money will wait for the sale, they just take the game away so no one can have it and people with less money will have to choose not to get other games and pay full price next time the game is availible again. Nintendo is super fucking grimey im boycotting them.

    CryoBiosisCryoBiosis10 päivää sitten
  • This is just me throwing out there. But the game itself, based on the people who looked into the game and it's build, is not very well optimized. No game breaking bugs or glitches and all but they're still there. Someone also said it's apparently running on an emulator rather than a straight port. Due to the pandemic, Nintendo was in need of releasing something to fill in the gaps after animal crossing new horizons. I have a feeling that Nintendo really want to remaster the collection but for whatever reason, pandemic or time constraints they decided to release a half-assed mario collection. And because it's half assed, they're only available for a limited time and later, plan will revisit the game to remaster it properly and release it once the pandemic is over. After writing all of this, I'm aware that this just look like a complete waste of time and resources just for this to be the case.

And third, you do realize that we're currently living in a deadly global pandemic (COVID-19) and because many people have lost jobs due to COVID-19, people are struggling to pay their bills, taxes, etc.

  • Perhaps Nintendo is simply weaponizing controversy. Whether they continue to sell 3D All-Stars or not, they managed to get everyone’s attention on them and Mario for about 6 months. That’s free publicity most companies would kill for. I can see Doug Bowser’s statement now, “we at Nintendo wished to engage the Mario fanbase with this limited time release...why are you mad?”
