They plan to sell hardware and games - including refurbished versions - while utilizing eBay's "buy it now" feature instead of putting them up for auction. This would in turn mean that buyers can't expect any steal from Nintendo, for now at least.
This Nintendo eBay store has a slew of refurbished games and consoles, as well as accessories for their many platforms.
So far, the store has failed to receive any significant attention. Now you have another option - the company just opened an official eBay store, stocked with new and refurbished games, consoles and accessories. This exclusive shop will have items that will not be available in any other retailers outside of the official Nintendo stores.
A few of the offers in the "Featured" category of the store include hardware like 2DS systems and Wii Remote Plus controllers, as well as games like Super Mario 3D Land and the New Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo coming to eBay may appear to be a random action for now, but it does make plenty of sense considering that the online store of Nintendo lacks great patronage from customers. The new store is certainly more convenient for users who already have an eBay account.
There is not that much for sale in the store at the moment. U/New Super Luigi U Wii U game. Still, something to keep an eye on as the holiday season and Black Friday approach.
