I'm glad that retailers are taking steps to make it limited to one per customer, personally.

Sure, there are situations where it harms a legitimate customer but it's worth it to combat scalpers.

good. chances most people who ordered more than one are scalping. sucks for those with multiple kids and what not.

why wouldn't your friends just order their own?

thread title should be editted to mention they're cancelling those who got more than one. kind of misleading otherwise.

What's your reasoning for ordering more than one? How many did you order?
1 for me, and 1 each for 3 of my friends. But oh well.

I called Best Buy and they said the reason was because they aren't getting that many and so they can give everyone atleast one.

Only reason I ordered is because I was at GameStop trying to order it and it went out of stock while we were there.

I had two on order and had one cancelled. It wasn't for a friend -- in fact, at the time I wasn't sure why I ordered it. I just got excited. Was thinking of maybe holding a contest and giving it away on twitter for fun/good will/to try and drum up some followers. In any case, I think it's good that they enforce this policy on LE items like this.

This is pure shit. I ordered one for myself and one for my nephew and they canceled my order. Not fucking fair for those of us not looking to resell them as there were no limits.

Get fucked, scalpers. I feel bad for the legitimate buyers who needed 2+, but it's a necessary evil.

Hopefully retailers start doing this for certain amiibo too.

These things aren't exactly limited are they? Won't there be some available a few weeks after the initial rapture?

Dont really buy that excuse but doesn't matter since they got canceled anyway.

there is no distinction between a person who buys more than one for a good cause like a friend and a scalper, this is the most logical decision imo

While this is ultimately a good policy, I do feel bad for people who wanted two for honest reasons, i.e. 2 people in the household who wanted one.

In my case, my wife and I are both getting New 3DS XL's. She wanted the black over all other colors - she prefers understated and has no interest in LE's. I ordered a black as well, but also ordered a MM because I couldn't decide which I want more. So for now I will have both.

Anyway, if this hurts scalpers that's great.
