Check IGN.com, a huge gaming review site. They got their advance copy of SSB Brawl and they consider it one of the defining games of the era. Looks like its going to be amazing.
My local EB games told me they cannot pre-order one for me now because they arent allowed to order any more. Sounds like only people who ordered well in advance will get one, and believe me people will be pounding ebay for one.
It releases on the 9th, I expect this stock to go up then pretty well.
How can there be a "shortage" of something as easy to manufacture and distribute as a disk? Especially for an AAA title in high demand. PS3 has no artificial shortages and you can find anything you want at a retailer. That is how capitalism works when companies are not involved in hullabaloo and nonsense.
If there is a "shortage" of this disk I expect the stock to plummet further as investors realize Nintendo is running a scam.
Shortage? The pirates have stepped into the void to the tune of a few billion dollars worth of Nintendo products a year, and still Nintendo continues to double profits. Pirates, like Nature, abhor a vacuum, and act immediatly to fill one when given a chance.
