>The Big N, though, seems like it can't figure out how to make enough of its systems.

They shipped approximately as many Switch units in March as the PS4 and XBO did in their first month and doubled production going into April. They did commit more units to Japan, but they also outsold the PS4 launch by ~16% there. There is no artificial scarcity, production, or supply issues with the Switch. Nintendo has produced and shipped a completely reasonable number of units, it's just popular.

And hopefully that means more people can get their Switches soon! But when you can't get that, or NES Classic Edition, or amiibo, it kinda stinks. Patience is a virtue. Switches will come around. But the initial experience for amiibo and the fact that they're pulling the NES Classic Edition compounds into a bigger perceived issue.

Nintendo deliberately shorts the supplies of their new systems and accessories to inflate the perceived value. This way they manipulate the market and create a superficially high demand for the product. It's a disgusting practice that they do to minimize risk and mitigate potential loss in case the new fails.They do not care that it screws over their fans and customers by forcing them to pay premium prices on the gray market.

Not 2 mention the majority of nintendos games r still preschool games. Im sry but nintendo needs 2 grow up. Zelda on n64 was cutting edge as real 2 life as it got back in the day. After the n64 its been a cartoon joke. I luved nintendo and miss them being on top but they destroyed their own kingdom. Theres only 2 games on the wii and switch i would want atm and its not enough 2 buy 1. Zelda and super smash. Wen the GC was released it was like the old man that ran the company died and a 2 yr old took over
