Patrick Scott Patterson discusses the substantial negativity online surrounding Nintendo's recently-released SNES Classic.
Definitely a trend. The C64 one coming soon has 2 good games on it.... 2. Missing a heap of games that would have made it much better. Lucky there are emulators for these things because clearly people making them cannot pick games. Unfortunately they will all sell out, but really they shouldnt
I have the original snes, and a retron 5, so that's why I didn't bother. And I knew there would be certain individuals that would try to sell them for silly prices no thanks.
Maybe because.... most people are a**holes at heart, and this simply brings it out in them? I mean really, just look at internet commenting for the past 20 years. When people face no consequence for their words or actions, they show their true selves, and most of them, are s**theads. This here was simply a match to light the fire, as most public s**t tossing is.
Maybe it's from the Aholes who somehow managed to grab all available snes classics and put them on eBay-and Amazon at twice the original price. Not to mention the dumb @sses that inadvertently support this behavior by buying these scalped products creating a large gap among the haves and have nots.
Yea it's a real shame. I try to convince myself it was all the scalpers fault but the reality is there turning a profit because of desperate gamers who buy just to eventually post about it for the attention of others, I've seen it and it's pretty pathetic what the human pride/self esteem has become. Wanna stop all the ridiculousness, just price it for a ridiculous number, if people are willing to buy it from some random stranger at double the price then Nintendo should just retail it at that price, which in then forces scalpers to then sell at an un realistic number 200$+ . I think it could work but watch all the so called "gamers" cry foul because Nintendo prices it to high but when scalpers do it it's swept under the rug. It was pretty simple, just don't buy from anyone, wait for the restock, force the scalpers to eveventually sell at a near even profit but noooooo people so effing desperate, sweet zombie Jesus some humans are annoying
