The people who say Nintendo Compensated them by giving them 20 free games

Yes but it seems less like compensation if everyone basically got it. Even the people who got the reduced price.

Though I suppose Post Drop Price people will never get it ^_^.


I didn't get free games, I dont think there was any loophole in the uk

The 100,000's that got the games doing scams. But with the reduced price. Doesn't that mean you got nothing and Nintendo basically gave everyone who wasn't stupid the free games?

I can't tell if you're calling early adopters stupid, or people who didn't buy it for cheaper before the ambassador program closed.


The people who were planning to get it cheaper NOT getting the free games stupid.

Early adopters aren't stupid just over zealous XD.

Eh, I suppose it's true, we got a reward for being loyal customers, you got reward for being smart shoppers.

TBH I didn't care about the price drop, 20 free games made me happy.

Pretty sure we don't have any kind of policy like that in stores in England, so I don't think there was any loophole to be taken advantage of. Over here, the programme will have worked as intended.

It's not a matter of "you got it too, even though you paid less than me". It's a matter of "I bought this and N lowered the price. Now they're giving me free stuff, even though I'm not an entitled crap sack and I agreed to pay the original price in the first place."

My "compensation" is completely independent of any of you. The fact that some people found a way to pay less and still got the games does not decrease the value of MY games. Period.

Ambassador is basically Nintendo's fancy word for "those who are are showing near blind faith in our new hardware by purchasing it before we release actual innovative titles"

In my opinion if you buy a 3DS today you're still showing those qualities. Certainly to a lesser degree but still applies none the less.

And before you ask, I bought my 3DS at launch.

Why would I listen to someone who can't even spell Garfield?

Maybe the name "Garfield64" was already taken. So he/she went with "Garfeild64" instead.
