I hate amiibos because they feel like DLCs , but they's good because they're nice characters figures

It's DLC (amiibos) you can collect so at least it does retain some resale value rather than DLC which is one time use.

and I heard that they're reusable , like in WiiU if you have mario amiibo you can use it in every game that support that character ...

I'm not buying no stupid bracelet!

I washed my hands of Amiibos after buying 18 of them. Sold them all except for my Little Mac. Not gonna play Nintendo's game of artificial supply constraints.

If Microsoft is jumping into the fray, I hope they don't pull the same crap.

You bought 18 more than i did

Smart beads on a bracelet..?

"In various examples each bead represents a character, environment, object, etc. and the software experience displays an animated story based on the characters, environments, objects, etc. represented by the beads involved in an interaction."

This sounds.. Unmarketably dumb? Likely a patent they'll never actually use.

Could be great for Hololens, seeing your character come to life in front of you would be great for kids!

Ok, in that case I admit it makes a little more sense. Though I'd think discs or cards or pretty much anything would be more logical than beads on a bracelet? :)

I bought a Mario amiibo and I like it. The figurine is cool. Practically completely useless with the console... but nice anyways.

I dont care for this toys to life stuff.... but I would totally grab a Master Chief or Conker amiibo.
