Not quite, but a fair point. Turned off!

Wow. Was ticked off that I didn't get a pre order in yesterday. And knowing Nintendo they'll do what they did with the Nes mini and for some bizarre reason cancel production of a product that is still sold out due to demand. Because they hate money it something. Just checked in this thread while at the bog in work and a helpful forumite at the moment linked us to Nintendo's own pre orders.

 

Pre order in and thanks :)

I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon end up dropping the price down to £69.99 before release, they've done things like that before :) Does the Nintendo shop take the money right away?

I used Paypal and got an email stating 'Your account will be charged when the merchant processes your payment'.

Amazon usually drop to RRP, and guarantee you the lowest price (which they usually honour if they make a mistake; I got Zelda: BOTW cheap that way).

I have a preorder with Amazon at £80 and Nintendo at £70. Waiting to see if Amazon drop their price below £70 before I cancel.

I was gonna double up on pre-orders, I got one in at Amazon last night about before they sold out, so I should be good right? No need to panic and multi preorder.

F*ck me I've actually got one through the Nintendo store! WOO!

 

40th birthday at end of Sept so a present to myself!

 

Also, says this on my Nintendo store Paypal confirmation: "To make sure you get your items as soon as possible, we may post each item separately. Please note, payment will be taken from your card or account within 48 hours from dispatch."

 

So looks like no payment taken until ~27th Sept.

Ordered one from Amazon yesterday, and just put one in on the Nintendo link. Will probably cancel the Amazon one unless someone I know wants one.

 

Sent the Nintendo link to my brother, and he says that it let him add it to the basket, then told him it was out of stock!

Hang on, isn't Mario Odyssey out on the 27th, like 3 days before? I guess it's all about getting SNES owners interested again and cross-marketing :)

Does anyone know why the box says 20+1 games installed and not just 21 games?

 

Darn it I just missed out on the Nintendo Pre Orders. Guess my Shopto one will have to hold.

20 classic games + 1 previously unreleased game (Star Fox 2) I assume.

Ahh yes, I had it in my calendar wrong :) Still, it works even better then, building up the hype.

Ah that makes sense especially after reading this.

 

the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 will offer them something entirely new to enjoy (players must prove their skill by completing the first level of the original Star Fox before Star Fox 2 is unlocked to play).

I don't know if it is true or not, but I heard somewhere that you had to play part of Starfox to be able to play the sequel?

So much for registering my interest Nintendo. :quote:

 

I seem to be constantly missing out on pre-ordering. This is punishment for being so smug about how easy I found getting a NES Mini.
