  1. Amazon has been doing this for the past several years for products they have an active interest in selling.

    for many years Amazon has been buying back or offering “trade in credit” for movies, games, books etc etc and have warehouses filled with stock they can’t get rid of because they have more money in them than what they can sell them for so to wipe out competition and to drive the prices back up they started gating those categories and limiting how many sellers there are for them.

    The poster who stated this should be illegal is right, it should be. They should be investigated to the fullest extent and made to pay for these actions.

    Their claimed reasons are just a smoke screen for the real reasons they are going after third party sellers and violating the First Sale Doctrine.

    It’s been a joke for many years now and a financial burden for sellers of those products who have spent years building a trade on Amazon.

    You cannot get permission from Nintendo to sell used Nintendo products.. period. The only thing you can do is get a wholesale account somewhere for NEW Nintendo products which is a gateway to be able to sell used products and 90% maybe even 95% of gaming sellers don’t have what it takes to get a wholesale account to do that.

    It’s a bunch of smoke being blown up the A$$es of third party sellers so that Amazon can eliminate it’s competition.

  2. Funny how correspondence that they deliberately sent is suddenly “in error” when it makes them look bad. Go jump in a lake, Amazon.
