Scalp this, scalp that... Seriously it's called supply and demand. Low supply, high demand is always going to push prices up. If someone with more money than sense wants to pay over the odds for something instead of buying a standard amiibo and some gold paint who are they hurting?

Spend a month with the UK club Nintendo!!

There are sections that have been 'coming soon' for years now and the items on offer are nothing morevthan forgettable trinkets for the most part.
I Can't blame Nintendo for the lack of some games in the uk/Europe though when PEGI expect you to mail them a body part with each game submission!!

Each region and console manufacturer has it's issues in these regards...

Personally the only category I could possibly place myself in is 'gamer'. I enjoy both core and casual games and currently I'm happy that my Wii u is scratching both itches and looking at what's coming, will continue to do so. Unfortunately much of the 'core' itch is being serviced by third party games which are in a state of decline on Wii u.
I think however that the mold is set in the minds of the vast majority of the latest generation of gamers in that Sony and ms appeal to that core bunch and Nintendo is there for the Nintendo/niche/casual/kiddy crowd.
I've managed to change a few peoples perceptions just by getting my Wii u into peoples hands and letting them experience it. If only Nintendo could find an effective way to do this on a larger scale...

Hi Nintendo Life, your personal opinions designed to elicit discussion amongst your readership are rubbish!! Please get new opinions, preferably something more obvious!

Personally I would love to see The Last Story in HD... Not Nintendo I know but was a Wii exclusive
