    Nintendo and any other provider of goods/manufacturer cannot limit ANYTHING at all, no matter how much they try. Retailers CAN limit stuff but if people know beforehand, they will just use another name on the same address or another card or a different address altogether. I am using a mail delivery service and i can use all stores throughout the country as they are included with the membership. It costs like £5 a month so if i was a big time scalper wanting to buy loads of those and there were limits, even 1 per order, i could literally FLOOD the webshops with automated robotic orders (it is extremely easy) and voila, nothing changed. There is so much money in scalping those, that there is no good deterrent . Were we talking about a £5-10 increase on retail nobody would care.

    So, back again at Nintendo, make more! Scalpers can buy all they want, if there is still stock, people will buy retail...

    Yup, this thing is cool, but it's just a novelty item. The Wii looks amazing on a PVM with a component cable. It even plays the games with the correct resolution (240p). This controller would make it perfect.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    Buying one of those here in Argentina is almost like paying scalpers. I've bought it for about $175 dollars in official stores. At least we still have stock :D

    It doesn't matter.

    And my grandmother is studying portuguese. I can ask her.

    Or just use Google Translate.

    PS: I'm from Argentina.

    also the prices in the pics are in brazilian currency, so you have to convert to USD (like i did)

    I know. I've only been in Foz do Iguaçu and Misiones.

    Go to the triple frontier. You will get them in a better price, like me. (I bought my ps4 there when I traveled)

    @BlueFox gui Is all electronics in Brazil such expensive or has Nintendo just made a mistake? For so much money you get new consoles in the US. I mean a current gen one like a PS4 or Switch.

    But I've been in Paraguay, not Brasil. As I said, go to the triple frontier in your next holidays.

    almost everything is expensive, even more games, in a normal country taxes above games are like 7% or 9%
    here they are 72%
    so everything came with 3x or 4x more expensive
