Wow. These suggestions only appear for Nintendo's hardware, not Sony's or Microsoft. I oh will the biggest online retailer's practice affect the purchases of the average consumer?

You're a little slow with the news today, but judging by the PC specs in your signature you're probably used to slow :P

Amazon does not sell directly Nintendo products, thatīs why they canīt advertise 3DS or Wii U in the Vita or PS3 section....

As much as I hate PC elitism, that was actually pretty clever.

I work at Amazon and we actually do sell the Wii U, just indirectly. We get shipments of it at our warehouses and they're distributed to our affiliates and "Fulfilled By Amazon" partners. I don't know why that's the case, and I don't know why we don't do that with the 3DS, just the Wii U, but Amazon still ends up making money off of Wii U's sold that way so it's all the same in the end.

yeah why would amazon advertise something they don't actually sell? does that make any sense? that article is nothing but linkbait
