Recently, Disney Infinity's producer, John Vignocchi, sat down with Game Informer's Ben Hanson to talk about the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0 and the Star Wars play sets. Nearing the end of the podcast, Hanson asks a fan question regarding the insanity surrounding the Amiibo shortages. Vignocci's reply, while truthful, came across a bit backhanded.
Here's a quote containing the gist of what was said, and I have also included the entire podcast above.
Hanson: Given the turbulent release of Amiibo characters, are you doing anything to prepare for the high demand for Star Wars figures?
Vignocchi: There is never an intention to create a shortage of any figures. It is irresponsible and rude to your hardcore fans. They don’t want to create frustration or the hunt. So they will be stocking the shelves well!
What do you think about this? Do you agree with him, or do you think the short supplies have made collecting Amiibo even more worthwhile? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
