Amazon escalates the dispute with Nintendo...

#1IntertekPosted 10/9/2012 6:08:25 PM
As you likely know, amazon is no longer selling any nintendo hardware after a dispute. (Nintendo refused to let Amazon sell unsold 3ds inventory at a discount, and amazon retaliated by marking large quantities of their 3ds inventory defective and either selling them at "warehouse discounts" and sending some back to Nintendo. In response Nintendo refused to let them sell any more nintendo hardware, and the conflict remains unresolved today.) I first found out about this when I realized that I couldn't preorder the wii u there. Today i revisited the website to see if the situation had been resolved, but instead I noticed that when I searched for wii u it told me to consider ps3 or xbox360 instead, and I also discovered that if I search for any other nintendo console (DSi, 3DS, Wii) AND click on it it will tell me to consider a competitor instead. Searches for psp, ps vita, ps3, and xbox 360 didn't yield any comparable results.

I'm disappointed to see amazon escalate this further, and I suppose the end isn't in sight.

I wonder how this will affect the ability to play Amazon Video off of TVii...

I should add that this conflict is only between Nintendo of America and Amazon USA. Reggie assured us that it would support Amazon instant video, but it's starting to look like nothing is off the table.

It's all good. There are other places to purchase games and items on-line. Try New Egg dot com. I got NSMBU for $47 (no tax) last week. You will not see that game that cheap for years.

I am pretty sure Amazon will continue to sell Nintendo software. But for hardware, gotta do it the old fashioned way and buy it at a retail store.

Remember that amazon has sellers as well. So you can buy a 3ds in amazon.com, but not from amazon. Rather, any other seller that uses Amazon
