~Those who feel the 20 games do not equal $80...~

Here's how I look at it...
NES games on Wii VC are $5 each.
So far, there's one GBC game on 3DS VC, and it's $6 (Link's Awakening DX). It's likely that GBA games would be $8 (as that puts them on par with SNES games on Wii VC).

If we go by this pricing scheme...
10 x NES ($5) = $50
10 x GBA ($8) = $80
Total = $130

So, it seems like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Unless you bought a 3DS after July 28th, then the 20 games = free.

No one factored them into their purchase; they accepted the 3DS for $250.

EXACTLY! No one put a gun to anyones head (that I know of) and made them pay $250. They decided it was worth it...from that point on, they should eat it.

Are you assuming that all GBC games would be that price, or are you basing it on the fact that "big" nintendo titles always have costed more?

Stop making sense. People are trying to bash everything Nintendo does without thinking. Go somewhere else. - Mattperd, about the 3DS boards.

The problem is that they've giving you games you've probably played already and can emulate easily. If they let you CHOOSE 20 games, that'd be great.

I would agree with this if there where 20 games I wanted in the Eshop but at the moment there's only 2-3 games that I don't have and care about. The games look good so far so I'm happy.

...I was happy with the 250 price I paid. I'm thrilled I'm not only getting 20 free games, but quite a few of them seem very good. All of the GBA games are excellent so far, and for the NES games, I think 2 of them are great. Don't care much for the other 3, but they may surprise me nicely.

An easy way to think of it is if the games average at least $4 a piece, you get your $80 worth. There's a good number of solid, quality titles among them, so I'm thinking yes, it is worth it.

Of course, the bit about their just being "free" is true too. Nintendo could've just as well not given the early adopters anything. So, I'm all the more open to it as a compensation. Personally, I'd say if the 20 games were worth $40, I wouldn't feel upset about the price dropping so much, so soon. And in that case, they'd only have to average $2/game. Great deal.
