    I predict next reissue will be Apache just in time for Virtus preorders.

    Please make me wrong and reissue Stomp instead ;)

    They ALL do that. Fanstoys isn't some conspiracy group. For example, Nintendo knows they can make 20,000 switches for the month. They give the bulk of them to Amazon and Walmart, then split the rest between Bestbuy, Gamestop, Target, and others. Their rep calls Amazon. They offer Amazon 4000 units. Amazon says, thanks, but they want only 3000. After they get all the other orders in, they'll go back to Bestbuy, since bestbuy said they wanted more. The rep says they can get bestbuy 1000 more, and Bestbuy makes the deal.

    Nintendo doesn't offer Amazon the whole 20,000 because they don't want to upset the other partners, but they do want to make sure they sell the entire batch up front, because product that doesn't sell devalues quickly.

    Kinda of a poor example since nintendo is notorious for price locking, and 5 years later you are lucky to find any first party games for less than 5$ off MSRP (check breath of the wild). Even their systems rarely go on sale outside of store based sales where the store gives you a free game with purchase cause nintendo wont. Its worth more to the store to clear that space than it is to nintendo.

    Dont get me wrong i get your point/example, but using sony/microsoft as an example would be more accurate as they do reduce the price of their systems/games over time, while nintendo rarely does.

    Hmm, I haven't gotten mine yet from A3U, are you guys in the States? I ordered it later near sellout so I might be in a 2nd batch or something.

    Hello fellow Canadian kid, I think we’re in the same boat. I haven’t got mine yet and I think I was close to the sellout point so I guess we’ll see!
