    I thought about this, so since there's people who don't want to open their amiibos because it looks "bad" out of its box or don't have any.. How about coming around (that's what she said! lol) and unlock Mii Racing Suits in Mario Kart 8 for trustworthy GBATemp users?

    There is the issue that one of them could always try to steal or worse so I'm not quite sure about it now that I think about it.

    Just an idea to let out there.

    The way Nintendo is handling this is really passing me off. I am tempted to just buy them, unlock whatever content and return them. This of course would only work with the available ones.

    Hold up... using the Amiibos unlocks the Mario Kart 8 stuff PERMANENTLY? I thought we had to tap them every time! Inb4 renting sets of amiibos out is a viable business strategy.

    1. I know price goes down but I open and use them and they look great on display

    2. This sounds oddly sexual

    3. It isn't a bad idea but I doubt few of the members that are trustworthy live in driving distance

    Mario Kart 8 once you tap that's it. You've unlocked the racing suits.

    They probably work even in their packaging so just buy it, unlock content then sell for $70 when it's sold out

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i doun't nintendo would be soo stupid to make the chip so close to the bottom of the box..
    that way i would bring my 3ds to a shop, scan the ammibos and then good to go...
    the nfc range is just a few centimeters, probably nintendo made the package with a big space on the bottom..

    anyway related to the thread, if you just want to unlock game content.. you guys could remove the chip from amiiboos, glue it to a card or something (so it is not soo loose), and then send it to trusted gbatempers and we could create some kind of ring..

    They're not stupid, they put a piece of tinfoil under the Amiibo so you couldn't scan it in the box.

    Oh right, forgot about that. What about trying to scan it sideways? I suppose it wouldn't be close enough

    I'm actually loking forward to the amiibo cards. All my amiibo do is collect dust in the one corner where they wont get sundamaged (or seen either) and I'm tempted to try and sell them. I'd love the cards as they'll be cheaper and can be stacked in a small box.

    so, tinfoil hats really shield against "magic waves" ?? i thought the tinfoil hats shielding waves was a lie told by governament, so me and my surveillance paranoid friends would have a false sense of protection and we could be spied effectively

    Still nope. It's protected against such so people are forced to open them if they want to use their content.

    Never underestimate tinfoil. It will be your salvation when aliens come and try to scan you to use your clothes on their sick kart racing games.

    actually north korea. please send help
    My friend once gave a Mario Tennis cartridge wrapped in tinfoil because they were wrapping it at the last minute, and had nothing else to use. I swear I thought the cartridge was dead, I couldn't use it until I cleaned the contacts with a pencil eraser. No idea how that worked.
    Never underestimate tinfoil. (Just like Brunho said)

    I know, I'm saying I thought it was dead before I tried that. I also tried a few things before the pencil eraser.

    I was afraid the aluminum foil did something to the cartridge, it's contacts specifically.
    It could have been something else I did to the cartridge, that fixed it too?

    No, just dirty contacts. Carts are very solid, and never fail, even after being abused in any ways. There was a video proving my point too :P
