If you keep up with gaming news, then over the last two years, no doubt you've heard about the infamous Amiibo shortages, where Nintendo has failed to supply the US with enough Amiibo to meet the fan demand. But is it really a supply issue or does Nintendo have other plans? How are Europe and Japan able to have enough Amiibo but not the US? And Nintendo has historically had a pattern of creating shortages in the United States. Today, I'm looking at the economics of the Amiibo shortages to see what's really going on here.

I got the Link Wolf for $60 and it was from Russia and a Mario odyssey one in the America but my dog ate it 😭😤 but yeah I 100% think this is not a theory it’s a FACT



OHMYGOD!!! I didn't realize what literal hell my dad went through to get me and my older siblings that Wii console!!! He waited in line for nearly 6 hours just so my sister and I could finally have something to play against my brother with! Dang, I wish I could go back in time to that age!

The truth is they are extremely overrated. For that price they don't do that much and are really badly produced.
