  • R.I.P. Mario - July 9, 1981 to March 31, 2021. For real though, while there are still physical supplies of Mario 3D All Stars left for now, that's eventually gonna run out, and when it does, hundreds to even thousands of dollars for a copy will likely be commonplace if Nintendo doesn't bring the game back.

    • Guess Nintendo wanted also to enter the scalping game 🤣. It’s PR driven. Like always. People will stop talking about it in a couple days but the “they have games people even scalp for” stays forever.

    • Before the video: ok dude, idk why people like you don’t understand, but brands are not to blame here. Sony can’t change what GameStop etc are doing and why those sellers are allowing scalping to happen. Sooo Nintendo is not to blame here too After the video: Well f*** Nintendo

  • Well I have my physical copy so I don't have to worry about it. Give it a few months and I might be tempted to sell it at a massive markup myself but for now I will just enjoy the game

  • Since they announced the game they did say it was a limited edition. That's why I pre-ordered it from Amazon before releasing ($10 more expensive but then Amazon reimbursed it). I used to see it at stores all the time and now that it's gone, now everyone wants to buy it...

  • From a business POV Nintendo must have sold this in a time limit so as to boost sales. They already told the public that this will be a limited time release and most of the people bought it due to FOMO. This was also a good strategy to make big bucks easily by playing on that fear. What they did with Mario 35 is still confusing me. Like they didn't even charge anything for that. Maybe they did that to increase the subscriber. This is my theory and please feel free to correct me.

  • Did you buy any retro games on WiiU/3DS Virtual Console? Can you play those games on the Switch? Either you CAN play them behind another, new pay wall, or you CAN'T play them so they can build time between when you had the opportunity to play them last and present day. By making the ability to play these games hard, they're increasing demand for their retro games, which increases the sense of nostalgia. Later on down the line, they'll re-release 3D All Stars on a new Nintendo console in another shape or form. Maybe a remaster. The point is that it will be under a new paywall. If they allowed you to keep your purchased games cross console like PS4/PS5 then that's a lot of money they're missing out on from their older titles, and Nintendo seems to rely on its older properties the most

  • I think a missed part that could've been in this video is the statement from Nintendo saying something along the lines of how Super Mario 3D All Stars was just meant to be a celebration game that was part of the recent Mario anniversary and not meant to be a long running supported game. It also mentioned they are trying to find unique ways like that to celebrate anniversaries so people feel like they have a piece of memorabilia. But then continue on with the very much agreed stance that, from a customer standpoint, is a terrible decision on their part that will just drive piracy and emulation.

  • I can guarantee you that if 3D All Stars wasn't a limited release, it wouldn't have sold NEARLY as well. Nintendo blatantly took advantage of FOMO (Fear of missing out), and slapped together a cheap cash grab for Mario's Anniversary for maximum profit. I promise you that 3D All Stars didn't cost a lot to make, so they probably didn't need to sell much to make back the budget and start making profit.

  • Already got my game, so I'm good. I knew shit like this was gonna happen. Also, Nintendo already state they wanna make this special. Make it a special edition. So if you don't buy it now, it gone for good. Which is fine by me. I wanna make my game special. Maybe one day, in 20 years, it will worth million.

  • Good thing is, We don't necessarily have to resort to scalpers for this game. I mean two options: 1. Hack your Nintendo switch put game on there. 2. Emulation, still better than the Switch version imo just play it on a decent pc. This is why pc is our lord and savior.

  • There are situations where piracy is morally right. Nintendo and other big companies practically encourage it with their behavior, killing off games for no good reason. Sony did so as well. Seemingly to save money? Or maybe the money they gained throughs PS3 and Vita shops was just too small of a pocket change? It is ridiculous. Just pirate away. Ignore them if that is the game they want to play.

  • Look what they did? Profiteering is prevailent in just about any industry, not just gaming. It's a problem that our economic 'free' market system needs to address. I don't for a second believe there was any FOMO over 6 months lol. And the sales spike on the last week was probablty more scalper than fan. And that needs stopping. But how? Because I have nothing against commerotive limited runs. I enjoy them as a fan. Don't get them all just the ones I love. I think enthusiast's viewpoint is skewed on this one. Because anyone buying a Switch has a shit ton to play, and the mass mainstream probably isn't that bothered outside of 'It's worth how much? Man I wished I had a copy!' Collectors always want to buy cheap, but sell for collectors price. Collectors are the reason folk can do this lol. They missed the anniversary. Where were they? Most folk will wait till the next time these games get released. It was just 3 ports. They didn't have to do it! And for the love of God, please don't fail to understand this in one breath, then complain they are just in it for the money in the next lol.

  • ik neither Yong nor anyone will see this comment, but I'm from Mexico, last Saturday I went to a mall and then to a supermarket and saw copies of the game like if nothing. Man, it's really sad when corpos pulls bullshit like this but then, this is current video game industry state and sadly I'm losing more interest in games as day goes on. Been playing since the super Nintendo in almost all major consoles and many PC games until the last gen and honestly right now, things like this only makes me want to quit more and more. I hope someday the industry crashes like the pre - Famicom /Nintendo era and recovers so things can really change....maybe

  • Nintendo is almost like a perfect case study on how to be the most anti-company company. They routinely piss off and screw over a huge swath of their customers with shitty business practices and pr disasters while simultaneously limiting or outright denying their customers of services and/or games that they would absolutely pay money for. I swear if any other gaming company were in Nintendos shoes, they would capitalize on absolutely everything they could without question. Like how can the exec's and shareholders of Nintendo not see the fucking gold mine they have right in front of them?
