Amazon.com stopped selling Nintendo consoles since 2010 I think? Now I go on Amazon.com and all the Wii U games I had on my cart at Amazon changed to:

"This item is no longer available from the seller you selected."

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Pikmin 3
The Wonderful 101
Sonic Lost World
The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD

......
Well at Gamestop you can get a rubber ducky, a water gun, or a pirate sleeve Wii bundle.

That's weird. Amazon UK still stock their games, and they never stopped selling consoles as far as I'm aware.
2/8/2014- I officially predict Ridley playable in Smash 4. If he's not, I'll quietly change my signature and no one needs to remind me of this ever again.

That doesn't quite sound right to me (in the UK too and haven't seen anything to this effect)

They'd be absolutely mad to do this considering how well the 3DS is selling, unless they want to try and flex their muscles a bit and get a better deal from Nintendo

Yeah this is only Amazon.com, even Amazon.ca still sells Nintendo proudcts (thing is, is that they wont ship anything out of Canada).

Re-read the topic title, this is only pertaining to Amazon.com specifically, all the other amazons have nothing to do with that.

Took me 3 seconds to find a Wii U to purchase from Amazon. I think you're drinking some crazy juice kid.

No, you are just ignorant, you go on Amazon.com marketplace and think it is the same as SHIPPED AND SOLD BY AMAZON.COM, which is not the same at all.

They have always been available via third party.

So they don't store it on site. They're still handling the shipping and making it Prime eligable. Seems to be the case with some other console SKUs as well.

Point being Amazon's stock goes up and down all the time. The specific listings you had in your cart went down. New ones are up. It's nothing.

How well do you think 3DS is selling?

There is no bulletproof Nintendo handheld this gen. It's in the lead over Vita, but it's also performing worse than the DS at a similar point from launch. To look at that another way, 3DS is selling only half what it did last year.
