There definitely need to be a lot more games in order to make an efficient sorting mechanism. Right now some of the classic categories like rpg, action, adventure... would be nearly empty. When a few more games show up they should really make it easier to navigate.
I think they should have a front page with •New Games •3DS Download (inludes 3D Classics) •DSiWare •Virtual Console •Retail Games (just to see what's out) •Staff Picks and Featured Games And in each selection you can look for games based on price or genre.
The current organization is terrible because you can't find anything beyond Virtual Console.
If you're reading this, then that means you should move on to the next post.
Forget sorting. I'm reluctant to buy anything from the eShop because purchases are tied to the hardware instead of an account like on PS3/P and XBox 360. If something happens to my hardware, my purchases go poof.
Plus what if there's someone else in the household who also wants a 3DS? Then you have to buy everything twice. On PSP, I only have to buy once, and my downloads are available on any hardware I'm logged in on.
Just to be safe, until I see more data I'm going to assume cancer causes cell phones.
over to the left there's a search button, with a bunch of filters. I realize it may be a tad complicated to push a grand total of five buttons. I feel like you guys complain before any digging is done. And why don't you compare the eshop to the appstore?
