  1. Activision is a publisher and consists of many subsidiary game studios?
  2. I listed off singular game studios as an example?
  3. even if your example was valid (t's not), that it still wouldn't discredit what I said?
  4. the nature of game development sometimes necessitates layoffs and contract terminations during the lifetime of the development of a game? eg. concept artists once the game is released aren't needed, but you might still need SRE, dev, QA, etc. to support the game after release?
  5. some studios have multiple titles to work on they can transfer people in between, while others do not
  6. I literally worked in this industry at companies affected by these things and I might have some understanding of how this works?
Do my excuses fly yet or nah?
Ignore the trolls. It's not worth your time.

The message is :

"We’re sorry!

The Super Mario Bros. collectible pin set is no longer available."

Will they be restocked?
I don't think anyone can answer that for you.

Knowing Nintendo's track record....likely no more codes? But certainly hoping....was just going to buy the game to complete 6/6. It shouldn't be this difficult, Nintendo.

It's like they sold 100,000 copies on day 1 and are too busy patting themselves on the back rather than producing 300,000 pin sets.

I'm a bit disappointed that they said the pins would go live at 12pm PST yesterday, only went live at like 4pm+ PST, and sold out almost instantly. *sigh* But honestly I'm not surprised. This is just what it's like to be a Nintendo fan, haha.

I wish Nintendo could be a little more transparent with its fans....instead, they appear like the "innocent, family-friendly, user-friendly, fun-filled" company and everyone cuts them way too much slack. In any case, hope they restock. If they don't oh well. They could have made 10,000 for all we know.

It went live before 12pm PT. I was able to get my code before 3pm ET.

Moving to Ongoing Deal Discussion since there doesn't appear to be a shortage (yet). Might move it back before the alleged March 2021 end date for the physical release.
