Do you not get the concept of LIMITED EDITION?

 

They're not selling these to meet demand, like any other product.

 

They were sold promotionally for a limited time, to give them value.

 

If they sold them just as regularly as the normal ones, then it'd be like "oh, well now everyone has one" and it loses part of its appeal.

 

The whole point is to reward those who were lucky enough to buy one when they were on sale.

 

 

Just look at the Pikachu 3DS XL that went on sale a few days ago. It went on sale at Target for $160 (which is actually $39 cheaper than retail of the normal 3DS XL), and now it's sold out EVERYWHERE (now people are selling on eBay for around $250)

 

And more likely than not, Nintendo won't restock them. Because then those that have it will feel less "special".

 

 

 

Besides, they don't need to bring a CONTROLLER back, because if someone really needs a new controller, they'll buy one, regardless of color.


Yeah I get that obviously i'm just saying it'd be kewl if they produced more of them. The concept of Limited Edition is kinda dumb tho if you think about it. All they're doing is cheating themselves out of more sales to make the ppl who bought the limited amounts produced feel special lol. But watever it seems to be working.

having special conatrollers are cool and all...but you dont look at them while you play, and if you arent playing with them, you're looking at something else.

 

Give me a solid $60 black DS3 anyday.

I already have a Silver PS3 Controller so the idea of having a Gold PS3 Controller seems kinda kewl. Especially while in 2 player splitscreen. Only the winner gets to use the gold while the loser holds the silver lol.
