Game & Watch: Super Mario Has Sold Out In Australia And Is Already Being Scalped At Insane Prices

Late on Thursday evening, Nintendo announced a very special edition Game & Watch which featured the original Super Mario game and a few other extra goodies.

Early on Friday morning, all retailers listed it for pre-order at a reasonable price of $79.95, with Amazon even listing it at a great price of $60, but it didn’t take long for them to pre-sell out at all retailers, which isn’t too surprising given what we saw with the likes of the NES and SNES Mini consoles.

Within minutes of them going on sale, scalpers had taken to eBay to list them for 3-4 times the price of the RRP, with dozens of listing still on eBay for upwards of $200.

It’s unclear at this point if more mainstream retailers such as Target/Big W will stock these at launch, or retailer such as JB Hi-Fi/Amazon will get more at launch, but we’ll keep you posted if we do see more go on sale.

Also, I’ll just leave this here. Don’t do this.
