Nintendo's Ambassador program is rushed and somewhat botched

Twenty free games for early 3DS owners is far from the worst deal in the world. The thing is, it sounds like this “Ambassador’s program” is incredibly rushed.

First off, as was hinted at in the official press release, the NES games that will be offered on September 1 will be “early” versions of the final product. They won’t have digital manuals and there won’t be any cross system multiplayer support. Users will be able to download a free update at an unspecified date to enhance the NES titles.

The GBA offer also suffers from a few issues. None of the games allow for sleep mode usage or SpotPass/StreetPass communication. Oh, and you won’t be able to transfer these games to another system.

Nintendo will begin offering the NES titles on September 1 and the GBA games later in 2011.

You mean...I won't be able to use features I didn't even think about using when the games first come out, but the features will still be released later on?

**** you, Nintendo! **** you and your inability to put in features I didn't know existed or plan on using now that I do know they exist!

It's rushed because they want to get us the games as quickly as possible? Would you rather wait to get the free games until the updates are done? If so, here's a plan! Just don't download them until the update is available. Best of both worlds.

Why would GBA games need Streetpass/Spotpass?
The GBA didn't even have those features. :/

Were you really planning on reading the manuals anyway?
