You would have to be CRAZY to buy 3rd party retail games on eshop

With Nintendo, it is more reasonable :

1. Nintendo game will keep its full value at retail in most case for a very long time.
2. The Nintendo game is the highest quality, and you will probably never want to resell it anyhow.
3. The Nintendo game will give you pride to see it on your console, not regret for paying full price for a medicore 3rd party game
4. If you were smart and bought the Delux like me, you have a promotion and get 10% back on your purchase - why not do that?
5. Nintendo will give you more coins for buying online, nice bonus - I buy most of my 'small' VC/eshop games with coins now.

Where as with Zombi U, I am somewhat interested, but will wait for the inevitable 3 month price drop at retail - buying it on eshop would be crazy.

OF course, you can still buy Nintendo games at retail and be smart, but until 3rd parties can make games as good as 1rst party ones, you are wasting your money. Truth.

I bought Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on eshop. I don't see why it's such a bad thing. I got my Digital Deluxe Promotion points plus the Club Nintendo coins for it. I couldn't get those otherwise if I bought retail

Yes, clearly not a single third party game will ever be as good as a first party game.

Sure is Nintendo forum plant sock puppet, doing what Nintendo does best; trying to sabotage its own meager 3rd party supports game sales because they're too greedy to let anyone else get decent software sales on their console if they can help it and get the sales for their own 1st party games instead


Welcome to one of the shining examples of why 3rd parties don't like bothering with non portable nintendo platforms these days guys

you probably never STARTED reading, as you apparently are int eh dark knowing Nintendo games have BY FAR the highest RESALE VALUE due to quality. So.....your point is?

let me paint a picture, since you cant read :

*I served the ball, you stuck up your racket the ball bounced up lazily into my court. I slammed it with the power of a tiger and it smacked straight into your forehead. GAME. SET. MATCH!*
