But Nintendo should also fear people missing out on giving them free easy money. This tactic would make some sense if it was a more niche product, but it's Mario. There's no real way to prove it, but I feel it's success has everything to do with Mario and little to nothing to do with fomo. As for why Nintendo would do this tactic then, I'd hope it's because these games will eventually be added to the Switch's virtual console equivalent.

Or they possibly doing a transition with another 35th Anniversary starting in April with the same kind of event ? Zelda maybe ?

Eh that's still no reason to stop selling the game. Shouldn't need to explain that games can co-exist and are better off for it. Frankly even my hope is flawed, they could still just sell the game alongside the NSO counterparts. This limit is purely arbitrary.

So please stop criticizing the whole fanbase, call out the people and posts that are going wrong. But often enough claims of hypocrisis are actually conflating criticism of user A against company X with praise of user B for company Y, by claiming both users are the same (the magic whatever fanbase) and therefore what user A does is also what user B thinks. So in this example: find the users that praise this collection and criticized similar collections of other companies and call them out.

Yeah, this is why I often tell people to specify the person they're referring to, rather than the fanbase they belong to, when calling out hypocrisy.
Remember their name, or bookmark the post if you think it'll be relevant later.

When you just refer to it as 'the fanbase', then someone belonging to it may think you're referring to something they said, but don't think it's a fair characterization of it. For example, maybe they criticized TLOU Remastered for being a lazy port, and said the same thing about Mario 3D All Stars. Or didn't say anything about Mario 3D All Stars. Etc.
But because no names were mentioned, there's no proper way to show that the one making the call out is incorrect.

These kind of comments often rile people up, and so I keep telling people to specify names when doing so, to avoid unnecessary conflict.

Snore fest... stop pretending that when anyone talks about a fanbase that must mean every single member of the fanbase.

Don't know what you are talking about. Just look this thread and https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/243252/do-you-plan-on-getting-the-now-officially-announced-3d-mario-collection/1/ and you'll see. Don't need to go to any 7 year old thread.

Right, but did any of them criticize other companies for similar things?
I do remember people hating on PS4 and how people are happy about ports, or something to that effect. But I don't remember who said that, so I don't know what they may have said about Mario 3D All Stars. For all I know they may not even post on these forums any more.

I mentioned above why comments like that can annoy people when they have no way to confront what they think may be an unfair characterization, because no names or links were provided.

So when calling out hypocrisy, I often tell people to specify the person they're referring to, rather than the fanbase they belong to.

Grrrrr i have one pre-ordered through Best Buy, but I'm wondering if I should secure a 2nd copy through a different retailer in case of fuckery.

Relax, the game will also be available digitally so anyone who really wants it can always get it.

Since it is a pre-order and Nintendo will likely be printing more copies as needed until the cut-off, scalpers in this case might actually be a good thing, as they are forcing Nintendo to print more copies driving up the supply. A smarter scalper would wait until around the cut off point to buy up stock so they don't force additional printings.

You're focussing frustration in the wrong direction,who is provoking this opportunism in the first place?

And secondly i do not blame him, people that are already very wealthy do not bother with these kind of investments.

Nintendo pretty much encouraged this with their timed release. All they have to do is say, "Mario 3D All-Stars will now be available for years to come", then no one would be doing this for at least a few years until it's out of print. Nintendo is literally encouraging scalpers.
