Black Friday 2016 has been both amazing and frantic as consumers flood the shops for incredible deals on almost everything. Aside from the glorious feeling of being able to save as much as 50% on some items you have been wanting to acquire, we cannot deny that there will always be fights, breakdowns and frustrations. After all, Black Friday Sale only happens once in a year so all kinds of emotions are being thrown everywhere, at everyone.

Online famous seller, Amazon, was not even spared from the 2016 Black Friday avenue of frustrations as it received criticism in handling one of the best (and highly sought-after) gaming deals, the Nintendo 3DS Super Mario Edition for $99.

Okay before you panic, yes, there's such a thing as Nintendo 3DS Super Mario Edition and yet it's at $99 at Amazon. Aside from the amazing Black Friday deals for the PS4 Slim with Uncharted 4 ($249.99) and Xbox One S with Gears of War 4 ($299.99), we can imagine how excited techies and gamers are with Amazon seeing a new Nintendo 3DS console up for grabs for less than a hundred bucks. However, not everyone was all smiles with Amazon after this.

When the Black Friday sale for Nintendo 3DS became available at Amazon, many were surprised to found out that they were unable to close this deal. Now what's even more frustrating according to the said complaints was that the deal was available for pre-order, in fact, as early as Nov. 23. It was reported that the pre-order deal was immediately sold out however, for those who were able to get them early suddenly saw the Amazon listing with an already doubled price.

One frustrated customer even took out his frustrations to vent out at the Amazon Nintendo 3DS Super Mario Edition product reviews saying, "My kid went around and did jobs for neighbors in hopes of scoring one of these with his own money, managed to save it up in time, and stayed up until midnight refreshing the screen to get his hard earned prize. He was rewarded with the lesson that big businesses often do dirty deeds to their most loyal customers."

The said Amazon listing for the Nintendo 3DS Black Friday deal currently has a 2 out of 5 star rating. The said online seller was reported to have added more stock but the product is still sold out as of this writing, not including third-party resellers.
