NoA is the best.
Probably because they were originally sold as an exclusive ambassador only never to be sold again deal so therefore having them sold again goes against what they were originally advertised as.
Nice, got the ambassador plates and power up plates, and finally grabbed a charging cradle as well. Had the Boo plates in my cart too, but they were sold out already. Thinking scalpers hit 'em hard. Super happy about the ambassador plates though, I was pissed that we never got the opportunity to buy the system here in the US.
Boo plates are sold out. They're still up on the store but once you try to check out this error message shows up:
I just tried to add them to my cart, and it allowed me to add a maximum of two. Where it is saying they're sold out? (I already have one ordered with a confirmation email, so I'm not going to buy any more, but ... it doesn't look like they're sold out, at least for me.)
So, just shitty eCommerce design then.
Given these were exclusive to Europe and NA not only had to wait to get the non-XL new 3ds but never had an ambassador program, I really don't see why anyone should be upset.
Europe got the non-XL n3ds at launch, had the ambassador program, and got the faceplate free. America got the non-XL n3ds super late, had no ambassador program, and has to pay $22 + s/h for it.
But that was in Europe. In NA there was no way to buy them outside eBay.
If this were also sold in the NA Club Nintendo page back then as an exclusive, then yeah...but is still a limited release in EU and probably in NA too as they rarely replenish stock on faceplates.
And yeah. The Mario Maker faceplates are great buy them people!
Are the people angry about the "exclusivity" of the plates the same ones outraged when Nintendo started putting up the 3DS ambassador games?
I fully expect someone to buy 100 or more of the Boo plates just to flip on eBay.
Hmm, $50 plus shipping and tax for the Boo, Mario Maker, and Power Up plates...decisions decisions.
You could only buy 2 per household.I just got home and boo plates are gone FFFFFUUUUUUUU scalpers
SHIT. both sold out. Dammit!!
DAMN I can't believe i missed these. SO PISSED.
edit - so this being NoA, we should never expect these to be in stock again right? I'm not being sarcastic, legit asking here.
i just keep hitting continue on my cart hoping they'll pop back in stock.... the dream is dead right?
anyone get an extra boo or kanji cover plate set that they'd be wiling to sell to me? I'll pay extra.
I didn't notice they were selling the Boo plates on the U.S. store until this morning and OF COURSE they sold out immediately, sooooo annoyed right now. Why does NCL make such a low print of those? Cheap glow in the dark coating can't be any more expensive to manufacture than the felt or wood grain plates. Props to my fellow members who were lucky enough to score them, FYI I'd be willing to pay $50 or more for anyone willing to part with theirs.
