if downloaded titles again get attached to hardware, I might reconsider buying

you paid for one copy, you get one copy. If the machine you downloaded those games to breaks, you can send in your machine under warranty and get it replaced and re-download whatever you paid for. If your warranty is out of date, it's about 88 bucks to fix it. ( cheaper than a new machine). Unless you illegally modified your machine, this isn't a problem.

Don't be silly. No other major online system works that way, because it's so blatantly anti-consumer that no one else is confident that they could get away with it. You can redownload your purchases onto new devices (without going through ridiculous warranty rubbish) on PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, Steam, Impulse, the Android Market, the App Store, etc. etc. etc.

It's only Nintendo that restricts your download to one machine (or, at best, "one machine at a time", which isn't much of an improvement).

Telling devleoper to only make a certain ammount of games i not the same thing as having the company under it's control if developer's didnt like the practice you can be sure they wouldnt develop for nintendo same thing with transfer nintendo only got the transfers it did because some developers let them other developers obivously just wanted more money or they wouldnt have there games on eshop(btw oregan trail is the only game you mentioned not on eshop) oh let's not forget the ambassador 20 games free games more then makes up for rebuying 10 games(if anyone is dumb enough to buy those games when 60% of them have bad reviews then let them)

And there's the fact the best games from dsiware were all free to transfer and even some others(nearly 300 games 10 games out of 300 is not bad) Not only that NONE of those games are first party titles(being pubished by nintendo doesnt make it first party other wise dragon quest ix would be considered first party)

So tell me if nintendo is Choosing to neglect games to get more money why isn't every one of it first party titles on dsiware untransferable

Oh and how many psp titles can you buy off psn? less then 10% how many of the ps1 games are free? 0%
Did xbox offer any free games after any of it's price drops? no
Looks like there the greedy ones not nintendo


If nintendo was being greedy to start with by trying to sell a $250 3DS, then you would have gottne nothing for free. So fanboy logic is pointless to people that play video games without bias. So yes, Nintendo are just as greedy, they just couldn't trick buyers into falling for it. Except the fanboys, of course, and weak minded parents with crybaby children.

So, you feel the same way about Sony, too, right? I mean, they dropped the price of the PS3 by a hundo within 6 months and gave early-adopters nothing. Considering the price was higher, that surely makes them much greedier, hmmmm?
