Best Buy

Update: Best Buy is sending out an email to consumers confirming that low stock is to blame. $50 credit is being offered to compensate.

We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com/


The Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL situation just got a whole lot messier at Best Buy. We’re hearing that a slew of people have experienced order cancellations today.

This is different than what we reported on earlier this week, in which Best Buy started cancelling orders containing more than one system. Unfortunately, those who did only order one Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL are now seeing cancellations as well.

Update: Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Limited Edition now sold out on Best Buy! That was very quick!


Well, this is certainly strange! Even though Nintendo said yesterday that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Limited Edition would only available at Amazon, GameStop, and Fry’s, it’s currently up for pre-order on Best Buy.

You can place an order here. Be quick, as stock will likely sell out fast.

amiibo figures appear to be doing quite well at Best Buy, a major retailer in North America.

CONSULGAMER reports that “A review of Best Buy’s online sales show Disney INFINITY and amiibo in a dead-heat for the top 20 game-to-toys on the market – each having ten toys in the list.” If you expand to the store’s top 50 selling products on its website, amiibo and Disney Infinity are tied with 18 products in the top 50. Skylanders lags behind with 14 products.

Nintendo previously confirmed that 710,000 amiibo were sold in the U.S. over a three-week period.
