Wow, People Are Actually Trying To Buy Smash Bros. Demo Codes

Certain lucky Club Nintendo members got four special codes today, which can be redeemed for a demo of Super Smash Bros. 3DS. Almost immediately, people started trying to sell these codes — which they got for free.

For a demo everyone can play in a week. It's not even the full game; it only has five characters!

The full game itself costs $US39.99 at most retailers, and yet as of this writing, some people are willing to spend up to $US31 dollars on the demo. That's almost the full price of the entire game.

eBay isn't the only place where this is happening, either. The current official Smash Bros. stream will occasionally see someone trying to sell the demo from anywhere between $US10 and 100 bucks. Whether or not people bite is another thing. People are joking about spending money on the demo on Twitter, though. The hype is real indeed.

For those of you with some patience, the demo drops on the 3DS eShop for free on September 19.


    Damn, maybe I shouldn't have posted my other 3 on facebook :P

      If you posted them pub locally they won't be wold on ebay

    Kojima, I take it back. It seems you really can get away with charging people for a demo.

    I can't believe I just bought one.

    Granted, it was 9 bucks, but the Smash fan in me said I NEED IT NOW.

    I am both extremely proud and extremely ashamed of myself.

      This might sound strange, but heck, I'm proud of you too.

        You deserve all the high fives in the world ever.

    Yeah Dota2 beta invites used to sell for around that I think, in the early days, and that was for a game that was known to be F2P on release!

    The full game itself costs $US39.99 at most retailers
    YOU LIE.

      Yeah, that's for the US. Some prices for Australian retailers...

      EB: $60
      JB HIFI: $59
      OzGameshop: $51

        OzGameshop isn't actually australian it's a store based in the UK :P

    The demo, is great, but very basic. Do not buy this on ebay people!!!

    I am of the understanding that the demo being released next week is actually different. for a start it is limited to 30 uses whereas this one is unlimited.

    I gave away my codes on facebook and twitter. if u tried to sell them you are a douchebag of the highest order.

    Still some codes left on ebay, if anyone's interested; I bought mine off this guy;

    Activated one for myself and sold the other 3 in less than 24 hours, Muhahaha.

    I got my codes a couple of days ago but only download the demo today but will give my spare codes to friends like the Big N told me to,
    They watch everything that you do & will nerf your copy if you disobey them! D:


    First in, first served. Enjoy. I'm not keen on the idea of selling free stuff

    i got the email and gave the codes to friends.

    The 'special' demo version via the email codes is sightly different in that it has no play limit, unlike the one that will be available on the estore.

    anyone have any spare aus codes? would greatly appreciate it! thanks!

    I would like an NA demo code if anyonewill provide one. Please send the code to [email protected] I really want to try it out.

    Hi, anyone with a spare code that could send it to me? Im catching a long flight tonight and playing smash bros would make time *ahem* fly. My email is [email protected],


    PLEASE ANYONE WITH AN AUSTRALIAN 3DS SUPER SMASH BROS DOWNLOAD CODE! SEND IT TO ME! I will be so grateful. It have been so long since I started looking and I have not found one. I have tried so hard..Please...
