Stuff That Sucks - Scalpers

This week's Stuff That Sucks talks about scalpers. No, we aren't talking about Amiibo scalping. Greg Burke is talking something more sinister than that.


The topic of this week's Stuff That Sucks is "Scalpers." Considering that Greg Burke is hosting this video, one would guess that he's talking about Amiibos again. Well, actually, he isn't. Not this time, anyway.

No, the scalping problem has spread to the hype machine of Fallout 4. Specifically, it's spread to the Nuka Cola promotional sodas from Target. And it isn't even just the average jerk that's going out and picking these up, either. Jump down the rabbit hole with us in this week's Stuff That Sucks.

        He was mad over Amiibos, so is soda that unreasonable?

          Amiibos provide some level of intangible content. I can understand that on some level. But you can drink sweet water anytime anywhere. Maybe he's just way more hardcore than I am. I'll confess. I could never muster the emotion to care over either of those two things.

          For Nintendo the way to get around needing physical Amiibos is to just make that like content a direct digital purchase. A 99 cent costume or whatever price tag they want to put on it. Beyond that they're just a glorified memory card.
