It's Prime Day! That means, go to Amazon and buy stuff! Big deals on tens of thousands of items that you won't get to encounter any other time of the year! Those that won the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program Round 8 get to put their Amazon gift cards to special use!
(Round 9's prizes still aren't announced — this is because I announce them after I already have something bought, and I haven't been to a gift card-selling establishment in over two months. This should answer a certain shit-poster's question that he submitted in KoopaTV Feedback Form Part V. YOU all reading this can fill it out too, and get points to WIN Round 9!)
There's a problem, though...
...There's nothing particularly exciting or interesting, especially if you want Nintendo stuff. (There was an Xbox One for 10% off, but if you watched Microsoft's E3 2016 Conference or read our reaction log for it, you'd know you should wait for the hardware revision/revolutionary new Project Scorpio thing.)
|This is about the peak of it, and it was a totally-claimed Lightning Deal. (Vs. Elec Man?)|
Prime Day is basically functioning as Amazon saying, “let's get markdown and try to get rid of all of the stuff you normally wouldn't want because it's sitting in our warehouse, but we'll repackage it with HYPE instead of lameness while selling more Amazon Prime subscriptions.”
What can you get right now as an Amazon Prime deal? Well, Just Dance 2016. ...For the Wii.
|You should wait for Just Dance 2017 coming out on the NX.|
There is an upside to this: If it's not being offered right now, then that means Amazon thinks it will sell (or it already is selling) during normal times of the year. That's not really good for you, specifically, but it's good for the companies selling these things!
Ludwig hasn't and won't buy anything for Prime Day 2016. Did you pick anything up?
If you wanted legitimate, amazing deals, you should've bought stuff while Nintendo was offering it after E3 2016.
Ludwig has nothing but praise for Amazon, so don't take this as an anti-Amazon rant.
Prime Day 2017 is even more lacklustre.
