@BBYTerence: Just registered to say that I find it really disappointing and unacceptable that Best Buy Canada either doesn't have the business relationship and/or the buying power with Nintendo to make the Master Edition available for your customers. Especially considering it was available through BestBuy USA. This is a real let down for a company of your size that you couldn't secure this for your customers and as a result it's left to an inferior competitor whose website barely stayed online today.
One of the most storied and famous gaming franchises in gaming history and you guys aren't even really taking it seriously. Really disappointed that Best Buy dropped the ball on this. I was counting on you guys to have it and didn't put more effort into shopping with your competitor, and as a result I'm left empty handed. I won't make that mistake of putting my faith in you for important gaming purchases in the future. Would appreciate you passing that feedback up the chain.

No it's been confirmed Best Buy Canada " will NOT be getting the Master Edition" and does not appear to have the business relationship, buying power or confidence of Nintendo to distribute this product.

Or **competitors*** just paid Nintendo a bunch of extra money to be the exclusive seller of the Master edition. Business move by ***competitor*** and Nintendo. Happens all the time with video games

By all accounts every retailer will have the 'special edition' and it is not going to be in short supply, making it 'special' in name only. It's not limited or collectable like the Master Edition.
BestBuy USA has the Master Edition for American customers, meanwhile Canadian BestBuy customers get the shaft and a priceless lesson on where they should and shouldn't shop when it comes to highly sought after and important editions of cherished video game franchises. Sad when the 'best buy' was with another retailer. Better luck on the next launch Zelda on the next Nintendo console in 2025 I guess.
