People Outraged Over Amazon Nintendo 3DS Sale

This is the first time that Nintendo had its gaming console sold for an affordable price and some consumers were excited to hear the news. A number of online retails did sell the Nintendo 3DS for a fair price of $99 for the Black Friday Sale.

The limited edition Super Mario Nintendo 3DS that came with white and black colors is a Black Friday Sale exclusive. Customers did notice that Amazon was having pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS for a period of time in November 23, two days before Black Friday Sale hits.

However, Amazon started the official Nintendo 3DS sale on November 24, without sending any reminder to other customers who signed up for a pre-order. While some customers were able to get one, others were just completely devastated and unaware that Amazon sold the Nintendo 3DS on November 24.

There have been online comments from the angered customers regarding Amazon's limited edition Nintendo 3DS sale, stating the limited edition Nintendo 3DS on the Black Friday Sale was a chance to get the gaming console for an affordable price. Other customers shared their thoughts on the Nintendo forums and subreddits, stating that Amazon didn't contact them that the sale would be moved to November 24.

The Nintendo 3DS deal was also available on other online retailers such as Toys R Us, Walmart and Best Buy on Thursday. But, the majority of complaints Amazon customers have is regarding the pre-order and some scalpers that managed to get one or two Nintendo 3DS.

Amazon plans to restock the Nintendo 3DS throughout the day and more gaming consoles will be available around 2:25 p.m. ET, but it seems that the Nintendo 3DS is sold out yet again in just five minutes.
