Nintendo doesn't want my money... or maybe Gamestop just sucks

#1Big_IsaacPosted 8/10/2011 5:46:25 AM
so I went to a Gamestop today to pick up a eShop card to download some stuff. turns out they don't get them until "mid August"

question: does gamestop suck ass or are the cards not out yet in Europe?

I know we were supposed to get them late, but I could have sworn they should be available by now

Nintendo is desperate for your money. I just figure various conflicting national laws make it difficult to release a works-for-all system of selling those types of cards to Nintendo's liking for the 3DS. I'm sure they're aware of new security concerns too.

I suggest a PrePaid Credit Card. Since Nintendo is doing straight cash now, works great! And you can use the CC for other stuff too.

Yeah, and if 3DS owners think back to the launch of the system, Nintendo has been doing a lot of its 3DS marketing in a partnership with Best Buy. It's likely there is some type of exclusivity deal in place with them, which could be why the cards aren't showing up elsewhere.
