Let's do some math, pertaining to the free games

#1NickyTheNewtPosted 7/28/2011 2:27:34 PM
10 NES games x $5 that they'll most likely cost = $50 worth of NES games

10 GBA games x $8 that GBA games would most likely cost if ever released on the eShop = $80 worth of GBA games

$50 worth of NES games + $80 worth of GBA games = $130 worth of total games


So, even though us early adopters paid $80 more, we're getting about $130 worth of games. Personally, I think that's pretty much the coolest thing ever because I haven't gotten the chance to play any of the games on the list so far, but that might be just my cup of tea. What about you guys, what do you think of all of this?

Eh, they'd be worth that much to us. To Nintendo, the actual software probably cost a lot less than the $80 they made extra.

Though it doesn't really cost Nintendo to give these away for free, I still feel like this is an awesome gesture to those of us that did shell out the original 249.99.

$130 value honestly Nintendo should post these numbers on their official site. That might actually entice people to still pay the 249.99 to just to get the 10 GBA games (a value of $80) especially if there is a chance that they may not release the GBA games later (though they probably will...it's Nintendo after) and everyone likes free money.

I bet if they gave away 40 copies of the same game you'd be even happier.

Oh, you just think I'm happy because of the money thing. Yeah no, read on, you'll see that I haven't played any of the games that Nintendo has listed so far before.

No, more like $3 x 10 = $30 for the nes games and $5 x 10 = $50 for the GBA. That's assuming you would heven buy half the games. Megaman minigames? Really?
