Get used merchandize, officially.
If you want Nintendo’s games or consoles for cheap, Nintendo is now offering you a new way to get them- buy used (refurbished) systems or games directly from them. Of course, this is something they have offered for a while via the webstore they have on their official website, but this is different- Nintendo are now selling their used wares directly via an official eBay store.
It makes sense too- the average user is far more likely to search for used systems and games on eBay than on Nintendo’s website, which they are probably not even aware sells used games. This way, they get all the benefits of buying refurbished products from Nintendo, including a warranty and extended coverage, while Nintendo actually sees some revenue from sale of used products. Win win all around, for everyone.
Check out the deals and offers for yourself by visiting Nintendo’s official eBay frontage.
