Instead of the 20 games we should just get 80$ in eshop credit

I mean I am kinda excited for the games but I can play all of those games on my phone for free, and I think just giving us 80$ in eshop credit would just be way smarter I think so we can choose whatever we want

I know I'd rather $80 in credit instead of $130-$150 worth of high quality free stuff.
Or not.

$80 in store credit would probably cost Nintendo more money, since they then would have to reimburse third parties for game sales. I'm not saying I wouldn't appreciate $80 in credit more, or even better just a refund of $50, but neither of those is cheaper or creates the same loyalty from the general consumer.

So I can understand why Nintendo is taking the route it is. Personally I'm fine with it, added value for something I bought seems good.

I agree with the $80 credit thing - I'm not going to probably ever play Donkey Kong Jr. or Balloon Fight, and would rather pick up... say, Download Title X that appeals to me more. Still, beggars can't be choosers, and at least we're getting something out of it. I could stand to play through Fusion again.

I wouldn't say this is $150's worth of high-quality stuff, though - they're probably planning on selling the NES games at $3 or $4 each, and the GBA games, if they ever bring them to the market, at about $6 or $7 each. Probably an $80 value if we had to buy them separately from their e-shop.

I am interested to hear how you can do this legally. I had no idea there was a Metroid Fusion made for phones

This topic was obviously not well though-through.

If Nintendo gave $80 credit for eShop games, it would only be for the games they own. Sorry, but that is how the world spins.
What did I do now?

This would be quite expensive for Nintendo. On the plus side, it would boost third party eShop sales which would gain loyalty with publishers of eShop wares. Still, very expensive for Ninty so I understand why they didn't go this route.
