On March 31, 2021, Nintendo decided to discontinue production Super Mario 3D All-Stars. A controversial choice but dictated by the desire to make this collection special, created to celebrate 35 years of the Italian plumber. This decision, however, also had some decidedly unpleasant side effects. THE touts, in fact, they decided to take advantage of the situation to speculate on it, proposing the game a crazy prices.
In recent months the touts, or scalpers, have risen several times, despite ourselves, to the headlines. Many of them, in fact, have taken advantage of the shortage of stocks of PS5 and Xbox Series X | S or Nvidia RTX GPUs to make “easy money” by stealing several consoles from the market to resell them at an inflated price. It is true that the fault lies with those who lend themselves to these practices, but certainly these people are not saint’s shins.
Even with Super Mario 3D All-Stars these people are showing they want to take advantage of every opportunity to try and blow some good money from people. As soon as the game went out of production, copies appeared for several thousand dollars each. It is true that no one forces anyone to do this kind of business, but it is rather sad to see this kind of initiative arise immediately, what do you think?
Do you think Nintendo will stop organizing similar initiatives?
