Kotaku: On January 14, Nintendo announced a limited-edition Majora's Mask-themed gold New 3DS XL. Since then, chaos has ruled humanity. Food is scarce. Most spend their days staying inside and huddling with their loved ones. Gangs of scalpers roam the streets to prey on hapless consumers who like shiny things.
Well, at least it feels that way. Never in my life have I seen people get as fervorous over a piece of video game hardware as they have over this limited 3DS, partially because it's a lovely, nostalgia-tickling system, and partially because Nintendo and its retail partners have totally bungled the launch, facilitating scalper greed and bumming out tons of Zelda-loving gamers.
