Dealspwn: "There's no denying that amiibo is one of the hottest gaming properties around right now. Nintendo's plastic NFC figurines fly off the shelves before they're even released, selling out in minutes, while retailers and grey market resellers hustle to fulfil the demand.
It's a huge craze, a brilliant idea on paper, but I ain't buying it.
Be in no doubt, amiibo is a fantastic concept, but the implementation leaves a lot to be desired and seems be headed in a worrying direction. Is it time for an intervention?"
