    Be careful, there’s someone on this forum who got triggered when I dared criticise scalpers.

    I wish there was that "only 1 or 2 units per customer" notice on EVERYTHING. Scalpers suck.

    Heh. These comics always have cute little details. I love the eBay screen text and the tempy mousepad!

    This reminds me of the whole Nintendo Classic Edition fiasco. I can remember that I saw a couple of SNES Classics online on a toy store, I refreshed the page 10 minutes later, everything was sold out.

    game sap. lol the true story behind nintendo's amiibos and probably the animal crossing switches. I preordered the system from game stop, I mean sap, but it said while supplies last or something like that, so I have no idea if I got it in time. I had to preorder the carrying case from walmart. I don't know if I've got that either.

    For those unfamiliar - this is something gamestop will actually do. They will conveniently lose some pre-orders and scalp them themselves online. Cause they 'expect only so many to come in to pick up' on the first day. Bit of an old history. There's a website they have where they sell all their scalped merch.

    That's not something "gamestop" does, that's something shitty employees do and would be fired if they got caught. Owners included.

    I'll never understand people not understanding such an obvious distinction. It's like seeing a dude at walmart picking his nose and suddenly "for those unfamiliar - picking their noses is something walmart will actually do."
