$250 - $170 = $80... are 20 free eShop games the equivalent of $80?

I think so right? Plus if they're free, we won't have to pay the usual sales tax either. Sounds like a fair deal to me.

People are just mad for the sake of being mad. That's like 100$+ worth of games.

Some guy went and compared the new prices for the 10 games on ebay or amazon and they were, like, $250. For just those 10.

Your entire life has been a mathematical error. A mathematical error I'm about to correct.

They would be worth more actually. Since NES games are 5. So that is $50. and then GBC games are $6, so GBA games would cost at least $8.

Overall, this is awesome. =3 Never played the original Zelda, and I can have Mario Kart Super Circuit again! :D

New collector's items, with a case, book and physical copy of the game = digitalized distillation of a game? MMkay.

Let's assume the value of NES games being $5.

10*5=$50 worth of NES games.

Let's assume the value of GBA titles as $8.

10*8=$80 worth of GBA games.

$50+$80 = $130.

It'll definitely cost more than $80 to pay for those 20 games (using expected VC rates)

If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 222

That's also including the fact that they're new versions of very old games. An unopened box with a cartridge from 1986 is obviously going to be more expensive than an image of a game.

Having said that, you'll probably save money overall as an Ambassador assuming that you would buy every single game in the program anyway (and that itself is assuming that the GBA games are even released to the public).

GBA isnít free and since each NES game is 5 on the Wii you still love a good 30

Second Chances sure are great. It's nice to be back, GameFAQs.
