I was just pointing out that I don't think the price is that bad.

If the game is not for you and you aren't interested just don't buy it :)
I'm only trying to say that I think comparing the price of three old game ROMs bundled with an emulator to vintage hardware doesn't make much sense, and ignores it actual decent offerings like the NES/SNES Classic systems, Nintendo's past virtual console pricing, and game compilations by other companies.

That's not to say I don't understand why people might want to purchase it. Playing games on the Switch is quite convenient, but I do expect more than a bare minimum effort for standard pricing, and the programmers here actually have "lazy" written right in the code

Some retailers broke the street date, people brought it home and started rippin'

My order shipped early this morning so should arrive tomorrow. I suppose I'll play it and then put it up for sale... unless it's still a blast. Just wish they would have put more care into it for a 35th anniversary release... and by "more care" I mean "any care".

Strange. I ordered as soon as it became available @ Bestbuy and still nothing yet :)

But I'm hoping to find it at shoppers. I want to use some points to get it. I might even try to find Paper mario as well and use 100K points for $140... or if there more than a few available games I might even use 200k.

I was planing for a long time to use points on new joy con since mine had major drifting issue but Nintendo now fix them for free. I sent all 4 joy con and 2 weeks later they came back all fixed up! :)

Hope you find one! The new Paper Mario battle system wasn't for me and I was so excited for it. Bug Fables is great though if you like the older style Paper Mario games.

Yeah, I did as well and mine has not shipped. I think I will also try Shoppers with the bonus redemption this weekend.

Historically Mario games are great but am struggling to see the appeal of paying 90$ for a collection of old games I already own....

I am thinking of canceling it really, it was an impulse buy as I worried about it sold out and hard to find in future. My boy would love this, but he has not finished playing Super mario oddssey, and once he see it, it is hard for me to sell it afterwards. Can we really sell this game for the 90$ we have paid afterwards? I see super mario galaxy isn’t worth much on Wii.

For $90 right away, probably not as this is being sold until March 2021... after that, you'd have a much better time selling for $90 as the game won't be available via other means. All speculation, mind you and I've also lost interest in this. Not fully sure what to do with mine when it arrives tomorrow.

this is why i bought from a brick & mortar shop (BB) as you have 30 days to return vs buying on amazon where you'll need to pay for shipping to send it back
